Design in Blue Lagoon


Over Spring Break, I went to Iceland and had the opportunity to visit the famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa, one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. We browsed the gift shop on the way out and I saw this signature masks set packaged in a beautiful gift box on display.

However, something did not look right. Hence, I decided to do a crit right there and then. It’s apparent that the tubes and caps were of different sizes (blue & white vs. black vs. green) and the caps have different designs as well (green vs. rest). Moreover, the typeface is not ideal for reading – the words either blend in with the background or are too reflective to be read easily.

It seems like Blue Lagoon merchandizing decided to throw together four products that were designed separately to form one product for sale – not such a good idea perhaps!
