Brief y objectives

This project was born in order to meet the needs of a collective,consisting of women from Cádiz who belong to the Agamama Association: women with breast cancer, entrepreneurs and fighters who are willing to add value to society. The objective was to create high-quality products with health benefits, in order to live without the need of public investment. Our task was to create a brand that encompasses all of this through gourmet packaging design

Story-telling

For this project, we got inspired by the concept of dawn, as it evokes the celebration of a new day, which in the end is the most important thing in these cases: women who get up every day with strength, courage and attitude to undertake and carry out new projects. The name Alborear means dawn itself, referring to the appearance of the sun in the horizon. To do this, we got inspired by Greek mythology, in which the concept of Aurora (“Sunrise”) is mentioned. She is a goddess who personifies the dawn and is equivalent to goddess Eos, a feminine form who brings the new day. Another reference we took was poet Antonio Machado, who wrote the following in his work Proverbs and Songs (1912): “after living and dreaming, there is what matters the most: awakening.”

Formulation

To transmit all these values, we decided to create a symbol that spoke of the rising sun every day, reason why we used the most impacting letter on the name to create a rising “o”. Accompanied by pastel colours and Homer’s inspirational quote […] the one with the rose fingers […], we created a pink rose pattern to suggest the whole brand idea, ending with a claim that incites the warmth that this type of organizations should have: solidarity hugs, all accompanied by a photographic art direction that alongside Javier Gavill, managed to transmit Alborear’s essence and its life enthusiastic women.

Nurturing

In this case, in order to continue growing as a brand, we had to develop other products and pieces which supported the Alborear idea, such as honey and oil, inspired by the products’ own plants and transmitting its natural and healthy origin.
