Engage your senses

Studio Eduardo Aires
Avery Dennison
Sensorial Collection

Designers around the globe receive a simple request just a few times each year—use these materials to create something spectacular.

Designed to awaken the senses and allow you to communicate your feelings, the Sensorial Collection is a truly innovative range that invites consumers to touch and feel the labels. Making use of all the senses helps brands create an unforgettable experience, which is exactly what happened when Portugese design agency, Studio Eduardo Aires created the Avery Dennison Sensorial Inspirational Envelope.

According to Studio Eduardo Aires’s founder Eduardo Aires:

“Our job was to take color, shape and figure, and add in some inspiration from the great discoveries of the 15th century, to create designs reflecting the excitement of worlds and cultures colliding.”

From the Atacama Desert in Chile and the colours and smells of Cuba… to the landscape of Japan, Asia and the imagination… These unique labels capture the senses and the wonder when Europeans first made contact with the New World.

While the envelope’s contents have traveled the world providing inspiration for designers, the work was also recognized by Graphis. The New York-based publisher is committed to promoting the work of exceptional talent in advertising, art and illustration, photography and graphic design. The Sensorial Collection designs were named a Graphis Silver.

The set of five designs in the Sensorial Collection inspiration envelope leverages the sensory experience of these specific materials to create an experience for consumers, all while exemplifying the power of inspired materials use.
