Mailbooks For Good encourages readers to donate their books to charity after they finish reading it. And spreading the love of reading has never been so easy thanks to the super clever packaging system they invented. Your book cover can be turned inside out and refolded to become a small package with pre-paid postage and the […]
Don’t drink the tea! These gorgeous yet deadly little tea bags aren’t actually made for human consumption. They aren’t even made of tea. These little bags are full of fluorescent molecules that react to create a catalyst chemical reaction that gives off a comforting glow. Designed by Wonsik Chae of South Korea to resemble tea bags, these little lights […]
Greek design company Matadog found a creative and eco-friendly solution to their latest packaging design. Matadog designed raisin packaging for Stafidenios, which also doubles as a collectible children’s toy. The 12 different designs are simple enough for kids to build on their own, and clever enough that they won’t be thrown in the trash.
I love Steve Simpson’s illustration work and I especially love these chilli sauce packaging designs, where he eschews his usual clean, digital lines in favour of a rougher, more painterly aesthetic.
Beer seems to be on our mind lately. So too does spring, making this flashy, lime green brew exactly what we’re craving. Out of Sweden, comes Spring Edition: a mango, lime cider.
From the very clever folks that brought us gold and silver food spray paint and garage-style brandy bottles, comes a brand spanking new creation: The Deli Garage Vodka series. Designed by Hamburg-based Korefe, these intricately illustrated and indisputably imaginative silver flasks are home to blackberry and espresso, mint and melon, and ginger and coriander-infused vodkas.
Since the 1940s, Rochdale Cider has been pumping out locally produced and brewed apple cider for enthusiastic Kiwis. When the New Zealand company thought it was about time for an updated look, they turned to creative agency Supply for a fun, ‘retro cheek’ makeover.
Chinese legend has it that the most delicious wild tea leaves grow on steep hillsides, inaccessible to humans. So why not train monkeys to go get the tea for you? In one remote mountain village region of China, this incredible tradition continues, where monkeys are specially trained to climb and collect the tea on the mountain face. The result?
Traditional potato chips or ones of the baked variety? Usually the answer is quite simple, but when these toasted Crips, with their Wes Anderson-like bags, are involved, the decision is much more difficult than one would expect. I just can’t refuse the Thai Sweet Chili Chips surrounded by a couple of 50’s fashionably attired Squirrels. […]
There is something so enticingly old-school about Peppersmith Gum that makes it irresistible. And indeed, that’s the point. Intended to reflect the artisanal values of this new chewing gum company – as well as its distinctive ‘Englishness’ — this stylized packaging is as refreshing as the peppermint itself. Designed by London-based B&B Studio, simple, bright colors and a clever mint leaf logo adorn each box, which slides out to reveal a moustachioed icon, like Salvador Dali or Charlie Chaplin. Better yet, it also holds tiny pieces of paper for your used chew. Brilliant.
From a small Madrid-based boutique chocolatier comes the fantastic ChocoLate Orgániko. Made of 100% organic chocolate sourced in the Caribbean, the brand boasts too many cool sweets to list. But, we’ll still try. There’s green anise, fleur de sel, olive oil, and Ethiopian coffee beautifully paired with rich, deep dark chocolate.
Back in April, we told the tale behind the creation of NELSON beer — a collaborative, user-feedback Australian brew. Now, in preparation for Melbourne’s Spring Fashion Week in early September, this same Beta beer has slipped into its most recent attire, designed by Melbourne-based fashion house, Trimäpee.
Drink enough of this stuff and chances are you’ll feel a little green around the gills. Well, 360 Vodka have beaten you to the punch. They use stylish eco-friendly packaging and then employ an eco-audit to detail the environmental benefits of the packaging. So while it isn’t strictly organic, it is a ‘green’ vodka and […]
There is a saying in Norway that there are two kings: the monarch king and the Noodle King, Mr. Lee. The creator of the noodle brand of the same name, Mr. Lee’s instant noodles are about as popular as the man himself. And it was for that reason that the international design firm, Design Bridge, worked to create an image for the brand that reflected the character of Mr. Lee, while also boasting its own uniqueness.
