you smell {again}...

You-smell-soap-1

A few years ago, I posted a school project turned real project by Megan Cummins called You Smell. It's so fun to hear from Megan again and see how much her line and company has grown since then...

You Smell is now in a ton of amazing stores and is available in additional scents and products {like paper soap}. I still love the beautiful packaging and the quirky message, and I'm so happy to see that something that started off as a student's idea turn into a real business! — Joy

Um, how cute are these La Sardina Beach cameras by Lomo? Maybe the cutest toy film camera ever. They remind me of these Swell cameras I helped design back in the day... — Joy

Last year, I shared a new branding and packaging project I worked on for Hand in Hand—a company who's passionate about preventing illness in children from contagious diseases due to lack of soap and poor quality water. For every bar of soap purchased, another bar is donated to a child in need. And thanks to so many people over the last few months, they recently made a trip to Haiti to donate 5,000 bars to children in need. You can read more about the cause and the orange blossom soap bars right here! They're also now being carried online at Anthropologie. We're working on some new packaging for new scents, and I'm proud to have helped grow this product and cause even more... — Joy

I'm thrilled to share a peek at a new soap line, Hand in Hand, that I designed. The founders of Hand in Hand were so passionate about preventing illness in children from contagious diseases due to lack of soap and poor quality water. So, when they approached me about designing the logo and packaging for their sustainable soaps, I was excited to be part of such a great project. For every bar of soap purchased, another bar is donated to a child in need. You can read more about the cause and pre-order the orange blossom soap bars right here! — Joy

What started as gifts {that Geronimo-creator, Jihan, made for friends' birthdays}, are now custom pieces that can be delivered locally in Los Angeles or shipped around the country! Check out this sweet little film to hear more about these whimsical balloon troopers! — Joy
