We’ve just heard that two of our students were named as finalists for the Student Gold Pack Awards 2018. What a great way to start the week!
Itchy Lice Treatment Kit
Daryl Surtees, a 3rd year Graphic Design student, created the packaging for a Hair Grooming Kit that treats the undesired lice on children’s heads. She made a concerted effort to create a kit with natural ingredients opposed to chemical ingredients. This more holistic approach was spurred by an article in which a mother sprayed insect repellent onto a child’s head and consequently the child succumbed from repellent poisoning.
Daryl also identified that the comprehensive treatment process would include having to use multiple products and to make this process hassle free she combined all the products into one convenient easy-to-use innovative pack.
Bloom Infused Sparkling Water
Taskeen Osman, a 2nd year Graphic Design student, designed a new approach to bottled water. Taskeen’s approach was to use water infused with edible herbs and plants containing the health benefits of each plant. The name BLOOM was chosen while she was looking for a synonym for “refresh”. Bloom captured her attention as it can be defined as more than just “a state of flowering”. The word as a verb, means to come into or be in full beauty or health; to flourish. Bio-degradable plastic as material was used for the bottle, this is recyclable, reusable and also compostable. The bottle cap is manufactured from PET plastic, as it is PVC-free and can therefore be recycled.

Good luck Daryl and Taskeen!
