Gifting is a big part of Royal Salute’s business and each year a festive pack is launched to celebrate holidays around the world such as Christmas and Chinese New Year. The design of these packs are informed by stories related to royalty and festivities.

I was asked to create concepts for the pack designs and to select artists with whom to collaborate. One pack took inspiration from the celebration of unity and peace between the British and French crowns in 1520. Another was inspired by the Royal Masquerade Ball held at the prestigious Ranelagh Pleasure Gardens in London in the 18th century. I worked closely with the artists and the production teams to realise these beautifully produced packs as well as creating print and digital campaign imagery that was used globally.

For the Royal Wedding Edition, 70 bottles were made to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry of Wales to Meghan Markle, I found inspiration for the bottle engraving in a luxurious antique brocade and added ears of barley and thistles to link to the product and the brand home of Scotland. The bottles were hand engraved by the craftsman at Dartington Crystal, who inlaid the design with silver. I worked on the box interior with illustrator Nabil Nezzar who created hand drawn flora and fauna from the United Kingdom and the United States interwoven into a classical lattice design.
