Case Study


The Challenges

The challenge of this project was to conceptualize a product that rekindles the enchantment of sleep in modern life. Emphasizing the connection between the magic of dreams and sleep-enhancing aids, the key concept focused on creating organic products suitable for daily use. As a result, Shleep was developed—a solution aimed at assisting sleep-deprived individuals in achieving a restful night's sleep. Through an online subscription service, Shleep delivers a monthly Shleep Kit containing organic and natural ingredients, with the option for refills-on-request, ensuring a consistent supply of sleep aids.

The journey

Low-level System

The logo mark focused on the typography (featuring a hard, quirky serif) and a symbol eye-lash-like mark that represent sleep, tea-drops and the half-crescent moon

The color thus follow suit, showcasing a wide range of hues (lavender,teal,mustard, and pearl white) that pop but remains soothing to the eyes.

The main illustration also feature the brand's mascot sleeping, and a whole range of organic plants and herbs, suggesting a mystical amd magical experience.

The packaging for the kit is envisoned to be a kind of magical story-book, and open like a book. As such, the copy is crafted to look like text from a classic book, with a adventure-book voice and set a magical tone. The product boxes are inspired from illuminated manualscript with boxed-in flourishes and decorations. Working together, they form a cohesive system that suggest discovery and exploration of the packaging.

Individual Product box

Each product feature a key illustration that highlight the ingredient, which is also echoed by a simplified line-art when the box is opened.

The name of the product is stylized: "The Salt of Lavender" for Lavender bath-bomb or "Cottoned peace" for cotton earplugs.

The typography and composition is minimal and simple to not only clarify the content but also create contrast against the other packaging system.
