Karsh Hagan: Platform T Packaging

Brand: Platform T

Title: Packaging

Agency: Karsh Hagan

Agency Website: karshhagan.com

Executive Creative Director: Charlotte Isoline

Senior Art Director/Designer: Camille King

Senior Copywriter: Karen Morris

Art Director/Designer: Lindsey Mills

Copywriter: Laurel Kelleher

Account Manager: Anne-Marie Salcito

Published: June 2015

Short Rationale: "To coincide with their brand launch and opening of their first tea lounge, Platform T needed packaging that embodied their fresh take on the tradition of tea. The custom copper tin with stamped logo mark was designed to be sophisticated yet modern. The topographic pattern invites the drinker to dream of travel while the icons and typefaces show the brand’s playful nature. The smooth metallic tin contrasts the rustic wood and stone textures of the lounge’s interior. To further bring to life the lure of travel and the global story of tea, their high-end reserve line was inspired by the ornate iron archways that frame train stations all over the globe."

Sleek Machine: Century 21 '#SoundsofHome'

Brand: Century 21

Title: #SoundsofHome

Agency: Sleek Machine/Boston

Agency Website: http://sleekmachine.com/

CCO/Writer: Tim Cawley

Art Director: Jess Ruggieri

Senior Integrated Producer: Ben Ouellette

Director/Editor: Nick Agri

Published: September 2015

Short Rationale: Since Facebook's autoplay videos don't play sound until the viewer engages, Sleek Machine helped real estate company Century 21 'turn a negative into a positive' by building a campaign around comforting sounds - like the sound of bacon sizzling. The short videos autoplay as silent films on Facebook, but Century 21 hopes that the imagery captures viewer attention and prompts them to click on the videos and listen to the sounds as well. The campaign urges viewers to either enjoy the brand's videos or 'simply spend time at home,' and the 15-second videos end with the following call-to-action - 'Find yours at C21.com.'

From sandwich papers to cookie stamps, we hoped to blend warmth and comfort with a refined elegance, perfect for everyday patrons as well as special occasions."
