We’ve looked at minimalism in wine and beer design before, but today, we’re examining minimalistic cosmetic design. Minimalism has been a hot packaging trend in 2016 and it does not seem to be slowing down. See how simplifying your brand’s look can have a big impact on the customer.
Chas N Dave Shaving Product Packaging By Sam Fitzgerald
This line is inspired by vintage, European barber shops. The simplistic nature of the design provides a sophisticated feel. By minimizing content, Fitzgerald is able to really hone in on the traditional, simpler way to shave. The clean look of the box also further emphasizes the clean shave the products will provide.
Depend Minimalistic Cosmetic Packaging By Sandra Kristensson, Emily Karlsson and Marie Hjalmarsson
Since this brand has its roots in Sweeden, the design was inspired by the Sweedish design style. That’s why the packages are open, clean and timeless. The aim is to draw the focus right to the product itself and away from bold design. This style is reminiscent of brands like E.L.F or Clinique that use packaging to draw the eye toward the product and the brand name.
Ava Toner Packaging & Label Designed By Christian Alba
While the shapes on this packaging are more complex than the other examples, it still exhibits the minimalistic cosmetic look. The transparent label on the bottle, in particular, allows for the product to stand out, and the light green color to blend with the greens in the logo. While there is more color in this scheme, it also keeps things simple.
