The Ochil Soap Company
The Ochil Soap Company is based on the slopes of the Ochil Hills, a beautiful Scottish landscape that has inspired this natural product. All their soaps are made from raw ingredients, using the cold process for soap making. Their candles are lovingly made from a beautiful blend of Natural Oils & Butters with Soy Wax. The Ochil Soap Company approached Art is an Option to help develop packaging for a new range of soaps and candles. The goal was to create a packaging solution for their new Siabann Range.
The packaging obviously needed to reflect the handmade luxury of the product, while remaining relatively cost effective. As a new range the The Ochil Soap Company needed the design solutions to be flexible enough add new product to the range. As a direct response to the brief we developed the idea of core boxes that are beautifully manufactured from rich black card. Each scent in the range was attributed a tartan. The tartan’s name also became the name of the scent. This approach has worked well at establishing a strong unified brand with great potential to expand the range. Digital printing of labels also allows new products to be test marked with quality looking short print runs.
