I was tapped by Synnovate Pharma, the natural products company of Unilab, Inc. to design the packaging for their 2020 Sekaya Prescribing Nature Gift Packs. A purchase of a gift pack enables the planting of Philippine native trees – Benguet Pine, a mangrove, and a dipterocarp – in partnership with the Cordillera Conservation Trust. For the packaging, I illustrated close-ups of elements of the Benguet Pine (Pinus kesiya), Dagang (Anisoptera aurea), and Gapas-Gapas (Camptostemon philippinense) in pen and ink plus watercolors, and layed them out all over the boxes’ surface. Line drawings of the same elements were used as a background image for the belt which has a placeholder for a Christmas card.

Plus63 Design Group tapped me to create a t-shirt design for Uniqlo Philippines’ UTMeArtPh x Fiesta Collection, along with fellow graphic designer-illustrators Frances Alvarez and Karl Adrian Aguro / Uncurated Studio. The Philippine festival assigned to me was Baguio’s flower festival, “Panagbenga.” I chose to incorporate native flowers that grow in Luzon, such as Ilang-ilang, Banaba, and Narra, and kept exotic species like sunflowers (which are comonly used in the festival) as adornments on the dancing couple.

As someone who wears Uniqlo clothing on the regular, working on this design was a complete thrill. Many thanks to Dan Matutina and Dang Sering of Plus63 for the trust.

"Bahay Kubo" for Go Lokal

The Department of Trade and Industry tasked arts & crafts store Common Room to create bright and youthful Filipino souvenirs  for their souvenir store Go Lokal. The theme was “The Philippines through your eyes” and I was among the 16 artists tapped for the project. 

My design is an homage to a beloved Filipino folk song called “Bahay Kubo” (“Nipa Hut”) which refers to a rural house built of palm leaves & bamboo poles. The song is known for lyrics that playfully enumerate a variety of plants & produce surrounding a family’s tiny hut. I believe this to be reflective of how the Filipino, with what little resources we may have as a developing nation, can stay afloat while making the most of whatever is available to us.

Design-wise I thought it would be a visual treat to show a colorful, bountiful veggie feast surrounding the humble quarters that a typical rural Filipino family calls home. I also thought that application of the artwork on everyday stationery such as postcards and notebooks would allow the consumer to celebrate Filpino culture any and every time.

Filed! is a brand of modern school and office supplies and they commissioned me to design a pattern for their Limited Edition Pen Capsule Embroidery Collection. The theme was Philippine Flora and Fauna so I came up with a vector illustration featuring the native Philippine Trogon amongst locally common flowers such as kalachuchi, sampaguita, and a waxflower. The design was digitally embroidered on two backgrounds, pink and black.

Googoo & Gaga shirts by Cynthia Arre

Local kids’ clothing brand Googoo&Gaga started an Artist Collaboration Series in December 2010. I was invited to collaborate in 2016 and the theme was “forest animals”. Keeping the brand’s offbeat image in mind, I thought of drawing zebras and giraffes because of their distinct patterns and decided to dress them up in colorful human clothing, posing against a background pattern of tropical foliage.
