Going to the drugstore can feel like being in the womb of an evil corporation.
Brands use loud colors and flashy fonts so their products stand out on store shelves, but they don’t think about where the goods actually end up. Once you buy, they’re done with you.
When you bring these products home and arrange them around your bathroom and kitchen, it looks like a horde of obnoxious colors invaded and splashed themselves all over the place. The bright tones inevitably clash with your walls, counters and furniture. There are sections of your home that start to resemble shelves in the bathroom aisle of the local drug store.
Brands design products to stand out on shelves. They don’t think about what happens after consumers buy the goods. The aesthetics of people’s homes and the clarity of product labels do not matter to them.
Functional Design to Compliment Your Home
With this visual dilemma in mind, Public Goods Co-Founder Morgan Hirsh designed our products to compliment your home, not visually assault it.
“Because we only sell our products on our own store, we have the luxury to be more thoughtful about design,” Hirsh said. “The main word is the product — like ‘SHAMPOO’ — not the brand, because once you’re in the shower that’s the most important thing, not the company that makes it.”
Our products use simple black and white colors, as well as a sleek, elegant design. Members have loved being able to give their bathrooms a boutique hotel treatment that looks chic, not garrish.
One of of our members said, “I love the simplicity of the bottles and how they look with my decor.” Many others have echoed this sentiment.
Delightful Packaging for a Fun Unboxing
Picking up toiletries at the store is a chore. Receiving a box from Public Goods, however, can be a fun experience. Several reviewers and dozens of our members have commented on how they enjoy opening our boxes and reveling in the packaging.
A reviewer from AskMen wrote, “It’s hard not to admire the minimalist, refine packaging demonstrated on all shipments.”
From packaging to product, we design everything we make for you, not retailers. If you want high-quality products that will accent the beauty of your home, think about becoming a Public Goods member.
