Bars of soap should not be neglected in the design department, which is why Daniel Ting Chong has taken it upon himself to design some funky cleansers. Shaped like ice cream cones, cleavers and paint brushes, Chong’s creations are almost unrecognizable as sudsy products. Their scents, however, should be a dead giveaway as lemon, peppermint and a combination of the two are often used in cleaning products. Each soap bar also has phrases like “fresh coat,” “ice clean” and “clean cut” to further promote bathing.
Daniel Ting Chong, based in Cape Town, South Africa, is an illustrator, designer, artist and VJ/DJ. His quirky approach to design has garnered him international attention, including clients abroad like Levi Strauss, New York Times and the Discovery Channel, as well as multiple features in art publications.
