Nicky the Chan

Personal Branding and Packaging Design

This project was inspired by my best bro who flew to Sweden for six months as part of his Student Exchange in university. Being in a new country presents endless possibilities–to make new friends, explore new grounds and write our own adventures.

A writer by nature, the set I gave him included a personalised notebook (which can be used as a daily journal or for making simple doodles to pass the time in between train rides), as well as branded stationery (so there’s never a reason to not send mail).

All the design elements represents my friend’s personality and interests. Doodling style was also inspired by illustrator Nicholas Frith. A simple and fun project, this was my personal gift to him.

Bon voyage!
