Confused? So are we. Australia is currently in the midst of a national political debate. Labor having just recovered from internal turmoil is promising those who vote for them a brighter future with the legalisation of LGBT marriage equality and the introduction of the National Broadband Network. All of this whilst the Coalition ofers to "stop the boats" and remove carbon tax. Also, let's not forget the other parties such as The Greens and PUP. So the choice is ours: who should lead Australia next? With the nation calling and the people uniting: September 7th - it's our call. Go prepared for Australia is about to change: for better or worse.

Travel Soap, 2014

packaging design

Travel Soap - the soap you can take with you anywhere and everywhere! This gorgeous soap comes packaged in not only a cute box but the box itself also features a second handy purpose: a soap drainer! It is easy to assemble and now there is no need to fsh around for a soap dish to keep your basin soap scum-free. Highly recommended for those on the run when it comes to either travelling, camping or even at home. In terms of final production, a thicker waxed (waterproof) cardboard would be used for the drainer section for extended use reasons. The end result is a lightweight, reusable and eco-friendly soap box that is perfect to use with any soap for a mess-free and hygienic experience!


A packaging solution for the concept theme of reuse - to redesign a generic packaging into something which deserved a second life. The original idea was inspired by my hate for soap scum. The end result is a soap package which had a built-in drainer! Easy on the eyes and in terms of usage.
