SKAPHIA

Olympic Collection For Urban Decay

Skaphia is a concept limited-edition makeup line for Urban Decay. The name Skaphia comes from the mirror that lights up the fire in Olympic Games. The main structure of the design is inspired by repetitive body movements of the athletics and pleated fabrics of the Greek goddesses. 

The project is designed for the near future, with smart packaging that connects with smart unattended retail space, application, and mirror application.

Urban Decay products are tested for extreme sports for its longevity. That's where the concept collaboration of this line started. By using athletics as the presentation of the Skaphia line shows various capabilities of the product, such as sweat-proof, water-proof, and long-lasting.

Primary Packaging Renders

I designed three collections in this line, Hera, Flame and Olympus.

 

Smart Mirror Application

Based on trends, smart packaging are linked with smart mirrors in retail and home space for best user experience. Forecasting near future application for smart mirrors at home. The application provides new looks and tutorials base on products. It also tracks inventory by connecting with the NFC within Skaphia's primary packaging.
