Australian Spotted Jellyfish - Phyllorhiza punctata - A beautiful but annoying invader
Phyllorhiza punctata (Rhizostomae - Mastigiidae) is a large jellyfish with a rounded and somewhat flattened gelatinous bell that is clear or possibly tinted brown with many small white crystalline refractive spots close to the surface. 
P. punctata is a coastal and estuarine jellyfish whose wide native distribution includes Australia and much of the Indo-Pacific including the Philippine archipelago. 
This species was recorded only from Indo-Pacific waters prior to the 1950s.  Since 1995 there are several reports of populations of the Australian Spotted Jellyfish in the Atlantic (Brazil), Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and the East Pacific (California), where the species is considered introduced, invasive and nuisance, impacting fisheries, injuring swimmers, and clogging the intakes of power plants, among other effects.

My goal is to create specialised packaging designs highly inspired by their contents.

I love solving given challenges by making the packaging part of the product experience and delivering the clients’ message in a unique way. Products will be recognisable and reliably dressed without unnecessary design to preserve product authenticity. My packaging designs are characterized by cleverness and a surprising simplicity.

Furthermore I can support you in redesigning and optimizing your existing solutions. Even small changes in die-cut and choice of materials can increase efficiency and sustainability of your packagings.
