Fresh from the field — Mayicha Tea

4 weeks ago by

This week’s Fresh from the Field showcases new branding and packaging for Mayicha tea by Lucie Blazevska.

If you’ve got new or recent work that you’d like to share in our weekly Fresh from the Field series email Zoë for details.


“Mayicha is a traditional, high quality pu-erh tea product from Thailand. My client let me completely unleash my creativity on this project. I had a chance to look for the best material and aesthetics to visually portray the Mayicha philosophy. Traditionally, the tea is a ritual that accompanies a certain way of life, custom or belief, and my aim was to represent this part of the tea ceremony, using modern visual techniques. The main materials are bamboo, frosted glass and recycled paper. An important part of the packaging is its re-usability and multipurpose of each element. A bamboo tea lid can be used as a tea tray after you remove the tea. A tea silk cloth can be used as the tea towel. A tea container made of frosted glass can be used as a tea cup.”

Expanding the Conversation: Thinking about Aotearoa Design

Design Assembly is excited to introduce Aotearoa Design Thinking 2017, a series of commissioned critical design essays published by Design Assembly and funded by Creative New Zealand. Design Assembly as an organisation was set up in 2008 to serve the New Zealand graphic design community and one way we can do that is to actively discuss New Zealand graphic design practice by celebrating, growing and challenging current thought. By building local design theory, Aotearoa Design Thinking asks what are the characteristics of New Zealand graphic design practice?
