Handmade Olive Oil Soap that Gets You Next to Godliness

We love this refreshing, updated portrayal of Greek Gods on Elo Soaps. These handmade body products are handmade and natural, made from—what else?—Greek olive oil, which is known to work wonders for your skin. Smirap Designs developed packaging that would pay homage to Greece and also appeal to those visiting the country.
“Elo soaps are 100% natural handmade soaps made from pure Greek olive oil. I was asked to make a series of illustrations of the Greek mythological gods and goddesses for the soaps they provide to Greek gift shops mostly targeted to tourists visiting Greece. We made 6 of the 12 main Greek gods, Zeus, Athena, Aphrodite, Demeter, Poseidon & Hermes. Although the ancient God theme is a very used theme in the Greek gift shop industry, we attempted to make them more modern and fresh by using my geometric pop art style. So the result we believe is something different than the usual. The packaging is very simple made of wrapped paper, a one sided printed card and a colored rope holding it together.”
