In the Beauty category, Diamond won a Bronze Leaf award in the “Most Creative Use of Embossing” category for Laura Mercier’s Exotique Face Illuminator packaging. The cartons were converted utilizing metallized polyester board and offset printed with four PMS colors and opaque white inks, with UV gloss and UV matte coating. The multi-level embossed tiger pattern is tightly registered to the dark brown ink providing a stunning contrast to the copper finish surrounding it. The debossed section on the front panel provides a backdrop for the embossed Laura Mercier brand logo and product name.
Another Bronze Leaf award for Diamond in Beauty was in the “Most Creative Use of Foil and Embossing (Folding Carton)” category for L’Oréal USA’s Maybelline Holiday Collection packaging. Diamond designed a unique carton structure for the Lash Sensational Washable Mascara, with pointed top and bottom closures, decorative black ribbon, and holographic foil that simulated a holiday ornament.
