Olukai’s box and hang tag design for high-end sandals includes no-glue assembly and wrap around ocean scene. Chipboard construction with a papyrus texture and intentionally offset printing create a casual island feel to go with the Hawaiian name, which translates loosely to “comfortable ocean”. Part of the proceeds from the Rabbit Kekai signature sandal were donated to the Rabbit Kekai Foundation.

Wilder is a new housing community on the coast of Oregon in Newport. Built for the people who live and work there, Wilder focuses on a neighborhood feel. The developers are dedicated to building sustainably, from raw materials to eco-swales and solar panels. Their collateral uses a conceptual illustration of the sea that is juxtaposed against the modern green leanings of the developer’s vision. Printed collateral does double duty to conserve resources: trifold business cards serve as a mini promotional tool and the letterhead is folded and sealed with a sticker to bypass using envelopes.
Project Scope: website, brochure, stationery, business card
