Holiday Elegance from Crabtree & Evelyn

Take a look at the exquisite holiday packaging for Crabtree & Evelyn’s 2017 holiday gifts. Sibling & Co (let’s hope they remember to enter the Vertex Awards) came out with the bold, foiled design that creates a beautiful gifting experience.

The Christmas 2017 design is drawn from the theme of tradition & ritual. The design concept comes to life in Crabtree & Evelyn’s range of Personal Care, Home Fragrance and Fine Foods gifts.

Inspired by the exploration and discovery of the natural botanicals that are blended to create the products Crabtree & Evelyn are famed for, the agency developed a theme of storytelling. The stories of their discovery, the part they play in festive traditions and the memories that they evoke within our minds are captured in a series of volumes, chronicling Crabtree & Evelyn’s ‘Once Upon A Christmas’.

Having imagined the concept and a moment for each seasonal fragrance, flavor or collection, the ideas and sketches were given to Andrew Davidson and Lucille Clerc, who illustrated each cover and spine beautifully.
