I was delighted to find some of the soaps I had designed packaging for in the post this morning! I decided to photograph them along side some of the original artwork used to create the wrapper illustrations.
Hand in Hand soap is pretty much the Mother Theresa of soaps. For every beautifully scented, fair trade, vegan bar of soap bought 50 feet of rainforest will be saved and a bar will be donated to save a child’s life. In areas with high levels of waterborne diseases, the basic sanitation provided by a bar of soap can be life saving. I am truly honoured to be part of this project; Bill and Courtney are obviously the ones who have done all the hard work, but if one extra person picks up and buys this soap because of the packaging then I will have helped in some small way. It’s also a humbling thought that it won’t just be consumers enjoying theses soaps and their illustrated wrappers, children in some of the world’s poorest countries will be too. Also I must mention that these soaps have been sitting on my desk all day and they smell amazing!
