Just to show that I haven't ignored the new project because I can't let go of the old, here is the D&AD competition I've chosen, Batiste Dry Shampoo package design. It's essentially a graphic design brief but I enjoyed the packaging project last year, so why not! They ask that four new bottles each to suit three sizes and a website is designed. Their bottles are highly patterned, so I've been looking at different patterns and also at groups of four such as earth wind fire and water, four seasons etc.
I've been looking at the patterns of different countries, such as aboriginal art, Indian henna, and Japanese silk.
