Bathroom products for guys: an icon system
As a non-single guy who has relinquished control over the buying of bathroom products, I am regularly confused when confronted with a new selection of unfamiliar bottles. For example, I was just faced with Imperial Leather’s “SkinKind hydrate cotton extract & oat milk BODY WASH hypoallergenic”. At least here the keywords are capitalised, but I’m pretty sure it’s often the case that marketing jargon entirely replaces the keywords (Shampoo, conditioner and body wash or shower gel) that I’m seeking.
Perhaps the soap companies could spare a little space on the lids for a simple icon that quickly explains the intended use to the uninterested user.
In these quick examples below, the first icon is a shampoo and conditioner, while the second is a body wash.
Please and thank you.
Everyone remembers the first time they stepped onto the Black Mesa Transit System and into the shoes of the unexpected hero, Gordon Freeman. Half-Life Origins is a short film that takes you back to where it all began.
Half-Life: Origins by Infectious Designer
Short, but very sweet. If Half Life were to become a television series, this would be the perfect title sequence.
Trivia: In the tram you can spot a poster for another Half Life short film by Infectious Designer: Beyond Black Mesa.
