A wink may be a quick, but it can mean a lot. When someone gives you one, it’s for you and no one else. The clean freaks at Wink Laser and Wax Studio believe that hair removal should always be just a wink away – fast, easy, and personal. Leave it to them to make you happy, whoever you are and whatever you’re looking for.
Because Wink wants to change how people look at the hair removal business, we ditched the flowers and the sexy women early in the branding process.
Instead, Wink’s look is defined by subtle shades of grey, blue, yellow, and orange in a clean but whimsical illustration style. The logo is an I with asterisk. Wink, wink!

This project was developed from the very beginning, even from within the product, a very unique ice cream: a shaved taiwanese style ice cream (but made with italian gelato), and with a texture somewhere between sorbet and ice cream.
There was a certain level of complexity for two reasons: first, this type of ice is unknown in Europe, implying a teaching job to overcome initial logic distrust. On the other hand, from the aesthetic criteria about local food, this ice cream is not very attractive, but rather ugly: an amorphous mass of ice cream with lots of sauces and toppings falling above and the sides. Marion Dönneweg + Merche Alcalá decided to make a virtue of it by creating a creative strategy around this.Marion Dönneweg + Merche Alcalá worked up the product working closely with the client (Joad López and Federico Mendoza), that had at all times a receptive and constructive attitude. Firstly we changed the taiwanese raw material by italian and started a “deconstruction”, separating the ice cream and toppings. As key creative twist,Marion Dönneweg + Merche Alcalá put two sugar eyes on the top of this ice cream mountain, making it a character-monster that looks you in the eyes and immediately gives it life and personality. The effect you get with a some simple eyes is just amazing.
