The Park Hotels are well known for their impeccable taste in style and design. Their Diwali (Deepavali) celebrations have been known to be very versatile, contemporary and much looked forward to. Diwali, the festival of lights, is an important Hindu festival and is widely celebrated in India. It celebrates the story of Hindu God Rama rescuing his wife Sita from the evil clutches of Ravana and returning back home victorious.

Smudge design Studio was asked to create a special Diwali gift hamper that would be gifted to The Park’s most valuable customers. Inspired by the epic tale, we decided to retell the Ramayana through a very contemporary yet ethnically designed gift box. Diwali being a celebration that includes a lot of fireworks, the gift hamper was designed to look like a large matchbox- a matchbox that contained explosives of the sweet kind. Inside the box were several smaller matchboxes. Each box depicted one part of the epic tale using illustrations.

What’s Unique?
Every year The Park Hotels take pride in presenting their special customers with a unique Diwali treat. We designed a special gift hamper for them, inspired by the Hindu Epic Ramayana.
