This is the first in-house project from our Studio and has been a labor of love. Smart devices are remarkable in their ability to connect with people afar, which historically has been a challenge. Unfortunately there has been an over correction and these devices have had an impact on relationships with the people around us. We set about identifying a solution which could address this problem and bring a healthy balance back to how children, to adults, interact. The result is Mr Pip’s Double Cross, a twist on Liar’s Dice, the most popular dice game in the world. The packaging and branding was critical to completing the product story. The packaging needed to be versatile enough to function as protection in shipping, be an intuiting POS and finally, tell the story that we are a company with a conscience and that we want to bring the world ‘fewer better things’, products which are timeless, high quality and environmental.
