Change the World. Start At Home.

For this TICE Graphics project, students were charged by their passion for climate change to inspire brand strategy and design for sustainable local business, Zenoté.

We were so pleased to have Hollie Ellis design this project for us, surrounding a topic that we continue to embed as much as possible in our projects, climate change and sustainability. Hollie was inspired by two people in particular – Melinda Watson, a Plastic Pollution Expert ‘Making Waves’ to help young people make a difference in this world when it comes to plastic water. Secondly, Zenoté Handmade and its mission to help consumers buy plastic-free, natural and handmade cosmetic products at home to help reduce the amount of plastic waste. Check it out.


Supported by: Zenoté
Mentored by: Hollie Ellis
Project Contributors: Andrea Schaffter – Owner of Zenoté & Melinda Watson – Plastic Pollution Expert at Making Waves


Project Outline:

Climate change and the rise in plastic pollution globally is something not to be ignored. Plastic is polluting the planet we live on and something needs to be done about it.
If you opened your bathroom cupboard/s, how much plastic packaging can you see? This will hopefully inspire you to start making small changes within your own home and inspire others to do the same too.


More and more companies are popping up in the aid to help consumers reduce their plastic waste, including Zenoté Handmade, a small business on a mission to help others do just this within their own homes.

The Brief

With plastic pollution becoming and bigger problem each day, it’s time to start making your own small changes at home, including swapping mass-produced unnatural soaps for handmade natural and plastic-free soaps. You will be supported in creating a presentation to showcase your logo design ideas for Zenoté Handmade.
