Boreal Folk Apothecary

Branding Identity, Packaging Design


About the Project

Boreal Folk apothecary is a a unique business specializing in natural wild harvested skincare products, run out of a 1999 Ford E350. Raphaelle + Mark’s van, in wild Vancouver, BC, acts as their tiny home and business base. Their workshop on wheels allows them to make natural products free of toxic chemicals and inspired by nature’s wild beauty.

“The van enables us to go into the woods and live there while we collect wild botanicals for their medicinal and cosmetic properties. We then turn them into wild inspired soaps, shampoo bars, skin salves, teas, smoke blends, infused bath salts, balms and other apothecary goods.” Says Raphaelle.

Shine Creative helped to bring Raphaelle’s ideas for a logo to fruition. Being a creative in mind and spirit, Raphaelle knew what she wanted, and together we produced the perfect identity for the earthy, handmade lifestyle brand.
