guck in a puck
ac can attest to the fact that i frequently fall in love with packaging. maybe it's because i'm the product of parents that were involved in advertising and marketing, as well as the "interior" arts, but i seem to be constantly pulled towards packaging, the aesthetic and interesting advertising campaigns. for this reason, my latest crush happens to be ac's new hair products from sharps- a new york based company that produces grooming products for men with a fantastic packaging and marketing campaign.
sharps' simple, bold and highly graphic campaign sucked me in from the start. we saw their products at riley james in san francisco and ac eventually caved and bought the "guck in the puck" after i cooed on and on about how much i loved the logos. their products are graced with four images, each somehow adding to the "modern, hip barbershop" feel of the line. the first is an astronaut (my favorite), the second, a goat with a strangely elongated neck, the third a suggestive geisha and the last, an old school microphone. each, along with the simple but gorgeous color combo of maroon/brown and white, add to a sense of updated masculinity that i love. beyond that, they smell good too. so, if you're lookin for some new hair gunk (girls too- it smells that good), look no further than sharps, a company that adds a little bit of cool to both your cabinet and coif.
