Sometimes TSG's products need a packaging refresh or rebranded to another brand for a different market. One of Gaby's tasks as the Graphic Designer was to transform these packaging designs to be on-brand and captivating.

Both Sharper Image and Black Series are cross-category retail brands, including remote control (RC) toys. Black Series caters to the Australian market while Sharper Image the rest of the world. Here are some examples of the packaging redesigns.

Sharper Image RC Toys Packaging Refresh
Sometimes brands just need to update their look to fit the current trends (while still staying on brand) more and attract more customers. The direction of the new designs was to make them look bold and simple. '77' symbolises the year Sharper Image was founded (1977). Here are some of the Sharper Image RC toys that Gaby designed for the new look, both the toys themselves and the packaging.
