Commercial product design, packaging and product photography for Max Benjamin

Max Benjamin is a luxury candle company, internationally renowned for their elite fragrances and premium products. They approached me initially to design some products for them, after working on a few projects I also began to redesign their packaging solutions and supplied all of their product photography needs. 

MAX BENJAMIN CANDLES

PRODUCT, PACKAGING AND PHOTOGRAPHY

Brief: Max Benjamin wanted to create a luxury range of fragrances to be sold in high end stores, the price point was significantly higher than their standard range of candles and this needed to be reflected in the packaging.

 

Solution: A luxury black and gold concept was drawn up and developed further to incorporate a rope handle. The interior of the packaging was re-imagined to facilitate the diffuser reeds.  

GOLD COLLECTION

PRINT & WEBSITE IMAGES

Max Benjamin wanted to update their website images and to compile an image bank of all their products. I undertook this project and shot over 100 images for them, standardising the layout, positioning, colours and producing a collection of images for print and screen. 

PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY

PRODUCT, PACKAGING AND PHOTOGRAPHY

Brief: I was approached by Max Benjamin to re-imagine the diffuser and candle packaging, they wanted a new concept which would help their products to stand out from their competitors on the shelves. They had an idea to do tea and coffee scented fragrances.

 

Solution: A tin can was proposed as a packaging solution as this tied in with the concept of the tea and coffee fragrance idea. Concepts were drawn up and developed to full manufacture, product photography was also part of this project. These candles were launched to great commercial success and won a RSVP magazine beauty award. 

TEA & COFFEE COLLECTION

PRODUCT, PACKAGING AND PHOTOGRAPHY

Brief: I was approached by Max Benjamin to create an elite collection 
of scented candles and diffusers in bespoke fragrances presented in stunning porcelain vases. Each geometric design is influenced by the Max Benjamin Belgian family heritage.

 

Solution: A ceramic container was chosen to differentiate the range, larger scale candles and diffusers were re-imagined to create impact alongside the geometric patterns.
