+ ICON DESIGN:

I designed several icons to use for the website. The first ones were for Merin Care, to show customers how to care for their bags. The second ones are placed on the footer of the website and they each take you to a different part of the website with useful information like Merin Care, Size Guide, Returns and FQA.

+ MADE IN THE US LOGO:

Merin Designs moved the production of Merin bags on 2015 from overseas to the USA (Portland, OR). This was a big change for the company and the product. We wanted to honor that and modify the original logo for the Made in the USA bags released on February 2016.

We made stickers with the new logo to go on the packages.

 

+ PRODUCT SPECS:

  • Product shots to feature different functionalities of the bag, positions and size.

+ PROMOTIONAL VIDEO

  • Art Directed a promotional video for Merin Designs, to tell the story of the company and interview the owner to use across all social platforms. I believe it's really important for the costumer to believe in your story, and connect with those behind the product and design.
