H²O Soulbottle

Packaging Design
Soulbottles is a Berlin-based startup with its goal of using glass bottles to reduce the impact of plastic on our planet. One euro per bottle is donated to a drinking water project in the third world.

Supporting this project has been a goal of mine for quite some time. The idea; pushing the aspect of water even further.

Due to the bottle’s very straight cylindrical shape, the self-imposed challenge came to achieve a nice effect with the refraction of light by looking through the water. After calculating the distortion, the designable area became smaller and smaller, so a minimalist style became handy to achieve the greatest effect.
“You have to see through the water to understand that it connects.”
