- Experimental project
Homer’s Blocks of Color is an exploration of different ways to chart a story visually. For this study, we referenced Homer’s two most iconic books, not only due to the plurality in characters and plot, but also due to the divine element in the narration.
The exploration led us to develop a visual system based on three basic guides.
For Guide 1 we capture the timeline of the novel – in this case, the days on which the narration of each book takes place. (y axis of the chart)
For Guide 2 we select characters who play a leading role in the development of the story, as well as things and incidents that affect them. After that we define one color block for each. (x axis of the chart)
For Guide 3 we place each character, thing or incident on the story’s timeline and match them in relevant combinations. (chart bars)
The outcome is a system that generates graphics based on the plot of each book. The system can generate visuals that can be applied on posters of theatrical plays, on covers of new books based on Homer’s work, on product labels and more. The method of this system is dynamic, making it applicable to other novels and books based on their unique content.
- Cosmetics packaging
Powerhealth, one of the largest vitamin companies in Greece produces its first skincare series along with 25A Lab in Crete. Collecting herbal extracts and fruits from the land of the famous Crete island, Powerhealth uses “Nature’s Innovation” in the new products.
Our name proposal was “Inalia”, one of Aphrodite's names - the goddess of beauty - in ancient Greece. The topography and the altitude difference of the fertile soil of Crete were the inspiration for the creation of the series' visual mechanism. Concentrated shapes and curves demonstrate the altitude difference and also the way Nature's Innovation spreads to the skin. The interaction of science and nature is reflected in the bottle itself, where the outer rectangular part interacts with the inner cylindrical container. The internal cylinder spins when you rotate the lid …and the essence and the secrets of Nature's Innovation are released.

- Cosmetics packaging
ANAS from the Netherlands is the first patented line of cosmetics that uses the powerful properties of crystals by placing a whole piece of natural and refined Crystal Quartz in the heart of its volcanic water based formulas.
We designed a series of packages that have as key ingredient the "crystal", its shape and its characteristics. Our strategy was to invest in every way in the concept of crystal. The uneven shape has led us to think that the packaging itself should be like a crystal for easy recognition by the consumer. Crystal is made up of many small pieces so we visualize each product in the series as a crystalline shape and when all the products come together they create the ANAS logo. Also, we designed the packaging box in such a way that when someone opens it, the product information is gradually revealed. The chosen color, light blue-turquoise brings peace to the eye, as well as the positioning “peace of mind” becomes “piece of mind” in order for the branding to complete.
- Face & body cream packaging
We were assigned by Powerhealth, one of the largest vitamin companies in Greece, to design the package for its first suncare series. Our name proposal was “Inalia”, one of Aphrodite's names - the goddess of beauty - in ancient Greece. The topography and the altitude difference of the fertile soil of Crete were the inspiration for the creation of the series' visual mechanism. Concentrated shapes and curves demonstrate the altitude difference and also the way Nature's Innovation spreads to the skin, while white in combination with metallic colors enforces the scientific character of the products.

A “non static” Logotype for Angelis Movies LTD, the company of film and television productions based in Athens, Greece.

Thus, the logo acquires flexibility and variety, and lengthens depending on the needs of each application, creating a dynamic identity and contemporary solutions for many branding applications.
- Branding & packaging
To design a condom packaging, you have to be bold, speak to youthful codes, be up-to-date, but also differentiate yourself from the usual competition that has prevailed in Greece in recent decades.
So we chose white as the primary color and differentiated ourselves from the color codes of the competition. Then, we created an avatar hero, who wears a different outfit in each package and is the main visual mechanism. The outfit represents the type of condom contained in the package. Correspondingly, the condom name becomes part of the package and thus the word ADD is complemented each time by the positioning of each condom style (e.g. ADD Safe Sex, ADD Real Touch...). In this way, we created a system of word and image which can be developed further into subsequent types of condoms. For example, by changing the outfit to a jacket, we can talk about a thicker condom e.t.c.
