title : the space between us
date : september 2017
Aesop Hwyl Eau de Parfum, a fragrance inspired by nature; ancient Japanese forests and moss gardens was launched in september 2017. yuko design created one hundred cards, housed in forest green linen envelopes, that were gifted at Aesop events. the cards were constructed with two kinds of japanese paper, each a different texture and shade of green to represent the contrast of tone and light created by a forest canopy. the product was intentionally minimal in design, referencing the space between us.
this was yuko’s first venture into printed product. the original product was handwritten and photographed, and digital prints were created from this.
