Photo Shoot - BUDIKOTE (Body Shop)

Spent a couple of hours today at the QVC towers in their 'Galaxy' photographing my packaging designs for the Budikote Range. Got to play with a camera, lighting, blue tack and a mixing bowl!

The designs on the packaging are mainly hand drawn reflecting on the ethos of the scheme which involves a community trade project between Budikote (a small village in India) and The Body Shop. The paper stock used is eco friendly and would be printed with vegetable ink.

Honda Banana

"Have you ever written on a banana in biro? Its crazy but it works like a dream. You wish all writing could be this way. It flows. It's smooth. It's sensual. You get the urge to write poems; sonnets; odes to lilies. A strongly worded letter of complaint is impossible. It makes you realise that everything can be improved. That even the familiar can be looked at in a new light. And that imagination is more powerful than knowledge. Do you believe in the power of dreams?"

You know what its true about writing on a banana - you should try. I like this ad as its unusual for the product being sold not to feature as an image in the advertisement. A bold simple idea which is eye catching and intriguing which sells the ethos of a company rather than their product. Building up the strength of the over all brand and giving Honda a strong personality.
