Project Type: Concept

A complete shaving kit for the light weight traveller. The kit contains face wash, shaving gel, aftershave and razor. The secondary packaging is not only compact and protective, but also acts as a tray for an organized and pleasurable experience. The kit is designed for a weeklong trip (7 days). So the customer does not have to open the kit before reaching destination or carry extra portions.

Jurys comments: "The shape is modern, economical and user-friendly, supporting the functionality of pushing the content out of the tube. All contents of the shaving set are on display and easily accessible for use in the holder. The outer box made of microflute corrugated board is very traditional but serves as a compact way to pack the whole set for a trip. The concept is ready for production and could be used for many other cosmetics and beauty care products too. Material choices are well-conceived and offer possibilities to use renewable board materials in new applications."

LICOR BEIRÃO

Posted: August 8th, 2014 | Author: Derrick Lin | Filed under: Alcohol, Concepts, Europe, Portugal | Comments Off

Creative agency: RMAC
Type of work: Proposal
Country: Portugal

But the story goes like this: at the end of the 19th century, a Port Wine salesman, passing through Lousã, fell in love with the daughter of a pharmacist, and they ended up getting married. In the pharmacy, apart from the usual drugs, they sold “natural liqueurs” which were made with secret ancient formulae.

Meanwhile, a law forbidding the claim of medical properties for liqueurs came into force. The young man from the North took this opportunity and started producing the nectars independently, with the same craftsman’s processes, in a small factory.

But the name Licor Beirão did not come at random. In 1929 a Congress on the Beirão region took place in Castelo Branco, and that’s when the liqueur was baptized Beirão, as a tribute to the gathering. The problems caused by World War II caused the sale of the factory, in 1940, to a young man from Lousã, José Carranca Redondo, who had worked there for some time. In his twenties, and then married, he decided to invest his savings and bought the house and the secret, dedicating himself body and soul to the liqueur that started to be produced by his wife.

From that moment on, sales started growing and it became a liqueur of great success.

Licor Beirão is currently produced in Quinta do Meiral, in Lousã (district of Coimbra, in Portugal). With more than 12 hectares, some of the plants and aromatic seeds are produced here allowing greater quality control. The remaining ingredients are brought from distant zones like India, Sri Lanka, Brazil and Turkey, among others.
