I enjoy doing Packaging Design. It challenges me as a graphic designer, even if it is a small label or a pack design for a well known consumer durable. Packaging also happens to be my first introduction to design as a professional. Most advertising agencies in the early 90's- when I began my career, started their trainee visualisers on Packaging Design! It is therefore, my first love. My first artwork that went into print was for a Monginis Cake pack...sadly have no record of it.
Mog Asun Whisky
I did this packaging for a Goan Whisky brand. It is inspired by Azulejos tile patterns and name plates. The name means 'Let there be Love' or 'Let love remain' in Konkani. It's a commonly used greeting in Goa when people bid adieu to each other.
New Improved Limca
The Coca Cola Company tried very hard to kill Thums-Up, Limca and Gold-Spot when they bought Parle Drinks. They managed to kill Gold-Spot as it was an urban drink. Thums-Up and Limca had a stronghold over small town and rural India- that’s where the volumes are. So they tried the next best thing with these two invincible brands- revamp the look. Update the graphics, change the colours etc. But that didn’t work either...thank goodness! And I don’t mind at all that I have a portfolio full of ‘New Improved Limca’ packaging that did not see the light of the day...I love the way Limca has always looked. I worked on Limca while at Leo Burnett.
