Tierra Inca Cosmetics Branding and Packaging
We helped brand Tierra Inca Cosmetics, a new bronzing powder which is derived from butterflies’ wings. Reflecting its pre-Columbian Aztec heritage, we developed a distinctive packaging and in-store display, capturing the historic Inca’s sanctuary of Machu Picchu. The packaging was cost-efficiently produced as ceramic jars with a cork closure, which serves as applicator.
Storytelling results: Tierra Inca's distinctive positioning and packaging won numerous awards. It was recognized by the Package Design Council and included among other distinctive cosmetics brands. It took part of several international exhibits and commanded attention of the cosmetics industry. In a relatively short time, Tierra Inca, a small cosmetic line, achieved a competitive, international presence among more established brands.

Brand Identity Program
Human decision heuristics have existed since the dawn of man. They’re the quick “mental shortcuts” hardwired in our brains to let us make the vast majority of our decisions in an instant. Our client, Newristics LLC, is the global leader in applying human decision heuristics science to insights and marketing and needed their new brand to be positioned as such.

It spearheaded their marketing efforts and helped Sutton East further project its presence as a distinctive real estate developer, in an industry dominated mainly by larger competitors.
