SKINS x JOOFWOOF
To celebrate the launch of SKINS x SALLE PRIVÉE, we asked graphic designer and art director JoofWoof to create an exclusive artwork that reflects the character and ingredients of the fragrance.
What were the first three words that came across your mind when you experienced the fragrance for the first time, and why?
The three words I would use to describe the SKINS X SALLE PRIVÉE fragrance are Light, Earthy, and Sharp. I felt it was light because the various ingredients that I could smell compliment one another in a surprisingly balanced way. The scent definitely has a pleasant earthiness that brought me comfort when I first experienced it. And finally, I would describe it as sharp because certain ingredients like sandalwood and cardamom cut through and give the scent something to remember.
Where did you find your inspiration for the artwork for the SKINS x SALLE PRIVÉE collab, and could you describe a bit of the creative process?
In creating the artwork for the collab, I wanted to strike a healthy balance of referencing ingredients, and referencing the experience of the fragrance. I was taught that a lot of visual communication and patterns we use come from nature, and when working with such a natural thing I thought it creates intrigue to be overt about some of the visuals, and contemplative about others. I think this also creates visual balance.
Can you tell a bit more about the different elements you’ve used in the artwork and how they represent all the various facets of the fragrance?
Some of the elements that more clearly represent actual ingredients in the fragrance include creating a pattern with cardamom seeds, and laying that pattern on top of wood grain. However, I think what is really interesting are the indirect graphic ways the fragrance can be represented. Layered, “floating” ovals show a lightness and balance. Subtle bursts reflect a surprise and intrigue towards this sharp, earthy fragrance.
