The monthly, packaging-focused publication, which is distributed in both French and English, focuses on emerging branding and design trends and showcases Pulp+Wire for its artful packaging design for Maine-based Pleasant River Soap. Included in a feature titled “Renewing Art Nouveau” about how art nouveau, now considered a retro look, is once again inspiring contemporary package designs, the article spotlights the typography, colors and functionality Pulp+Wire selected for Pleasant River’s eye-catching packaging.
