Le Costa Caribe

Costa Caribe rebranded with a tropical calm theme. Futura states the inspiration of the project is “‘the golden hour’, which is one of the most romantic moments on the beach, it has almost a mandatory stop to appreciate the color of the sun that covers all our surroundings” [The Dieline]. The packaging of the overall box is a coral colour packed with beauty products in plastic light pink bottles, the inner layer of the box is a light coral with a soft dusty pink text of the brand’s information and its tissue paper printed with geometric shapes in colours of green, pink and coral. Within the box is a small sealed envelope that matches the colour of the exterior of the box packaging, when opened the light green interior of the envelope holds a golden key for their condos with their brand name engraved in.

Sara Simar

The rectangular packaging is white on the upper half with the logo and product information printed in black font. On the bottom half is the torn paper design in coral (this also comes in various colours) with the purples of the product in white font printed vertically. This design was inspired to give their women audience a theme of elegance and confidence and to shine light on purity and naturalness.
