SouthSouthWest

Isn’t it great to stumble upon a website that you had tweeted, pinned, or blogged about light years ago? I think it is. It’s like rekindling an old friendship. I can’t remember the first time I saw the work of SouthSouthWest, but I was happy to find them again. This Australian branding and design agency [...]

Bardot

If you agree that creating a brand is all about creating a memorable experience, then I think you’ll find that Bardot leaves a lasting impression indeed. Created by Landor, this video combines sexy typography with curvy type – or vice versa – along with stop-motion graphics of the product and packaging. While sweets are often [...]

Salih Kucukaga Design

It’s the little things that please us designers the most, and Salih Kucukaga’s portfolio has plenty of little details to appreciate. Check out his latest work completed for Los Angeles’ Espresso Republic cafés. Notice the little orange ring at the bottom of Espresso Republic’s coffee cups – that match the letter pressed business cards. Helllo! [...]

Ineo Designlab

I can’t tell you much about this project other than it’s an identity for a wine label and it was designed by company out of Denmark. How’s that for investigative journalism? Something tells me that the logo was inspired by either the mountains or a loaf of bread. Either way, the circular icon made out [...]

karlssonwilker inc.

I was first introduced to the work of karlssonwilker inc. through their monogram, tellmewhy, which chronicled their first 24 months in business. I was a student at Syracuse at the time, and thumbing through the book I recall thinking, these guys must have a lot of fun. And finally, after months of having a “new [...]

Mas Mucho

Okay, let’s look a little closer at one of Mucho’s projects. What kind of blogger would I be if I just threw a couple of images together and said, hey look at these? I was really impressed by this line of packaged food goods for Buenas Migas, including jars of jams and spreads, tea, coffee, [...]

Not too Few

My Pinterest feed is a pretty good indication of the type of project I’ve recently been granted: packaging. Or, as my pinboard is titled, The Whole Package. I haven’t worked on any sort of package design in quite some time, and so I’ve been surfing the web like a madman in search of something new, [...]

Eat Good Food

Contrary to popular believe, clean sans serif typography doesn’t need to be sterile or corporate. I find this series of frozen food boxes to be quirky and fun, and this is just about as clean as you get. The black type on white background could easily be categorized as nutrition-label-information-graphic-like. On the other hand, naming [...]

Old vs New Cereal Boxes

Take a wild guess as to which version of these cereal boxes I like better. Then, head on over to see a handful more of comparisons at retronaut.com. Funny note, in picking the examples to show here, I didn’t realize until after posting that I only selected the General Mills boxes. There has to be [...]
