Visual identity inspired by the geographic area and unique nature of the Like region
Plasinia is a line of completely natural cosmetics made in the Lika region in Croatia. Inspired by the pristine nature of the area, the Plasinia line of products was born out of love for self-grown herbs, and the healing power of which they possess yet has almost been forgotten. The whole product range is made using herbs and the water of one the world’s purest rivers – River Gacka and contains no preservatives and needless additives, being completely organic and handmade.
The visual identity of the brand is based on and inspired by Plasinia’s natural geolocation – the illustrations and colors represent the green fields, forests and wild herbs, with a blue river and water-rich fields in the middle. At the same time, the illustrations make one think of skin layers or textures of creams or lotions. – Design Bureau Izvorka Jurić writes.
