what are trending cosmetic brands and designs in APAC

In the realm of cosmetics and beauty brands, particularly those that champion sustainability, eco-friendliness, and a makeup-free ethos, the power of graphic design cannot be overstated. It is imperative to leverage design not just as a visual tool, but as a language that communicates your brand’s core values effectively in the digital landscape. To embody these principles, your graphic design should be a harmonious blend of natural palettes, clean lines, and imagery that resonates with the purity and authenticity of your message.

Consider incorporating elements that reflect the essence of nature—think earthy tones, soft greens, and ocean blues—to evoke a sense of connection with the environment. Utilize textures and patterns inspired by the natural world to convey a tactile experience even in the virtual space. It's about creating a visual narrative that aligns with the ethos of minimalism and sustainability, ensuring that every graphic element from website banners to product packaging speaks to the conscientious consumer.

Moreover, adopting a minimalistic approach doesn't merely strip away the unnecessary; it clarifies your message, focusing on the authenticity and transparency of your products. Highlighting ingredients through simple yet elegant graphics, and using clear, eco-conscious messaging can create a powerful statement about your brand’s commitment to sustainability.

However, it’s never easy to get it done in practice. A branding agency in New York and skincare expert Dr. Muneeb Shah teamed up to simplify the complex skincare market. They embraced a minimalist approach, challenging the common trend where businesses try to convey too many ideas at once, which can confuse customers.

Hence, here are some examples of how brands turn simplicity into brand visual design:

1. Remedy

Based on the idea that effective skincare doesn't need an overload of products; just a few high-quality ones are enough. Remedy's branding reflects this simplicity with clear, science-backed packaging and messages like "Not a miracle. A remedy." and "Healthy skin is beautiful skin". The brand cleverly incorporates the initials of its founder, Dr. Shah, into its logo, adding a personal touch. For packaging, they chose a see-through material that looks scientific but is easy to understand, highlighting the brand's honesty and focus on science.

When it comes to content and visual design for online stores, adhering to the brand color - red, and leveraging User Generated Content (UGC) to bolster the product's credibility and popularity, are key elements of the brand's digital marketing strategy.
