expanding to bath product line; a new brand identity for Morton Salt, a well know North America's leading producer and marketer of salt./





/current Morton Salt packaging & logo





/The existing brand is not distinctive, blends in with others, and shows too much variance as a family. Morton Salt did attempted to rebrand and update the Morton Salt girl. However, they seems to fall behind with its brand image, keeping connected with the current trend and young cookers.


/In 2013, Morton Salt expand from kitchen to bath with epson salt, creating the perfect opportunity for them to branch out and create a sub-brand with the new line of bath/skin-care products; offering a completely new look and feel.

/urban rectangle&square

Inspired by the architectural stucture that is embedded within a natural environment. As well as looking at architectural form and proportions.

Architectural form is very structural, where as nature is more more organic. Simplifying the forms to a square and a circle. Applying that within the packing with rounded cut out for opening, creating little playful details for the opening ceremony.
