With 2020 fraught with uncertainty, releasing new products required a lot of deep thinking. What can we do to help put people’s minds at ease, and at the same time uphold the advocacy of promoting the importance of native species in biodiversity and forest conservation? Following our Forest Series projects (Philippine Forest Blooms, Philippine Forest Fruits), Forest Foundation Philippines and I came up with another collaborative project, the Forest Reflections Nature Appreciation Journal. Part undated planner, part workbook, it encourages users to harness the healing powers of the outdoors while developing a deeper appreciation for nature through art therapy and journaling.

The initial release of the journal was accompanied by a zippered carrying pouch made of canvas printed with llustrations of fruit, flowers, stems, seeds, and other elements that make up various species of Philippine native trees. The journal itself also has watercolor and gouache illustrations of native trees and birds, field-sketching tips, and basic watercolor painting techniques. Inserted in the inside back pocket are weatherproof cards that have identification charts for flower and leaf arrangements and bird field marks.

*The Forest Reflections Nature Appreciation Journal, along with the Philippine Forest Blooms campaign items, can be purchased at the webshop. All proceeds will go to the production of more items that can help spread the advocacy.

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.

A collaborative project with writer Chinggay Labrador of Practical Magic, the Tanim Filipino Botanical Oracle Deck features 40 cards printed with watercolor illustrations of Philippine native shrubs, vines, trees, and fruits, along with Tagalog and English guide words that invite the user to carve out a mindfulness practice as they get clear and concise action points with every pull — at the same time immersing themselves in Filipino flora.

The decks, offered with matching rolls of washi tape in a special launch set were announced in September 2020, and got completely sold out three days later.

More information on the cards are on the Practical Magic website.

Many thanks to Chinggay Labrador for the trust, and Pierra and Toto Labrador of LabTeamPh for the product shots on this page.

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.

Philippine Forest Fruits – Set of 30 Postcards

Tippi Ocampo fashion design book

Following our Philippine Forest Blooms collaboration in 2018, Forest Foundation Philippines and I worked on another joint project – Philippine Forest Fruits, a 30-piece postcard set featuring fruits of Philippine native trees – to help raise awareness for their importance in forest conservation. With FFP’s guidance and backing, we identified 24 native fruits to include in the set. The cards are printed with botanical gouache illustrations of native fruit-bearing trees like the Kamuning, Antipolo, Lipote, and Tibig. Information on each tree and fruit, such as their conservation status, their uses, etc, is printed on the back of each card.

*The Philippine Native Trees Forest Fruits Set of 30 Postcards, along with the Philippine Forest Blooms campaign items, are available at the webshop. All proceeds will go to the production of more items that can help spread the advocacy.
