A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
Rive Gauche is a hypothetical brand specializing in high end fragrant reed diffusers. ‘Vivid Lavande’ is named after the French-inspired Lavender scent which is designed to fill your home with a long lasting scent using only the finest fragrances, essential oils and natural diffusers. The exterior of the box was originally going to be in matte black however the gold omnicrom foil didn’t stick too well. Omnicrom works super well on glossy paper but problem is, there’s no printable black glossy paper anywhere in Melbourne. In the end I thought the black exterior reached a dead end and I used gold paper instead. I was actually happier with the gold than the black. This was the last uni project for our folios and I’m glad it was the last because out of everything we’ve done the last 3 years, this one had the most blood, sweat and tears yet it’s my favorite packaging piece to date.
It was a bit of math, engineering and of course, money. The box is made of a combination of wood and pasteboard then glued together with PVA glue and finally covered in black wrapping paper (used jac paper to apply the paper to the box). The glass, reeds and refill were sourced from an online supplier. More photos will be added to my website late next month after my USA trip.
