for the personal care brand Timotei. The project comprises the redesign of the shower gel, hair care and soap bar ranges.

In order to give a more contemporary look to the packaging and to reinforce the naturalness of the products, the design consultancy has used soft fluid and feminine imagery from the category’s visual universe, building a strong visual identity that unfolds the different Timotei product ranges.
