Life in balance

Influenced by tidal rhythms, we designed a balanced brand identity that recalls the ever-changing space between land and sea, drawing on natural tones and empowering imagery.

Suminagashi or 'floating ink' is an ancient Japanese marbling technique. The ink floats on the surface of the water allowing for prints to be made.

Our distinctive suminagashi pattern builds recognition, supporting stand-out packaging that combines elegant and practical presentation with a rewarding out-of-box experience.

It has been such a pleasure working with Graphical House and we value the dedication they have shown more than we can say. Holding our packs in our hands, being able to present them and see peoples reactions has been quite a joy.

Saalt’s ethical mission is one that they are committed to. To date they have diverted over 3 million period waste products from landfill, donated over 20,000 menstrual cups, saved $160k on the cost of disposables and funded over 19,000 days of school through projects all over the globe.

In the summer of 2019, Saalt was awarded B‑corp status, joining organisations like Ben & Jerry’s and Patagonia in certifying the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and legal accountability.

Since February 2018, Saalt revenues have grown tenfold.

Saalt cups are now also stocked in almost 2000 Target stores across the USA. In addition to this they are now the second best selling menstrual cup globally on Amazon.

In 2019, in collaboration with Put a Cup in It, Saalt launched their Saalt Soft Cup. Made with an ultra-soft silicone formula designed to be both gentle and super comfortable for those with bladder sensitivity, cramping or discomfort with firmer cups.

We evolved the core brand expression and packaging to give Saalt Soft it’s own sense of identity and a clear differentiation on the shelf.

Saalt Teen marks a second evolution of the main Saalt brand. The new cup was created in collaboration with real world teenagers in order to design the perfect fit.

Whilst the forms remain familiar the colour ways and execution are dramatically different speaking directly to the audience and achieving stand out personality within the marketplace.

When we started searching the globe for our design consultants we didn’t know if we’d find top tier talent willing to take on our small company. When, on our first call with Graphical House, they talked about period care products being patronising and clichéd we knew we’d found the right team.

Beginning our journey we knew that we would need to stand out in a beautiful and disciplined way. Now we consider our brand, art direction and design to be one of our strongest assets and differentiating factors.
