I am still armed with enough packaging goodies to post, only a month after the last packaging special!
So, let’s start with something striking…
You can’t deny that black and white is just striking! Blink sparkling wine bottle is striking, elegant and fashion conscious – stripes are supposedly slimming AND Nautical is IN at the moment Annnnnnd my favourite colour is purple
Here are 4 words I never thought I would see in the same sentence: Pentagram for Budgens/Londis
WHAT?!!??? Pentagram + Cornershop(Londis)/supermarket(Budgens) vodka = Disbelief
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love the work… it’s simple but illustratively beautiful… but its for Londis/Budgens!? Fairplay to them for trying to make their cheap alcohol look expensive, but as the saying goes… looks can be deceiving!
And next… something a bit more spicey for your palate:
by student Genevieve Cote. I expressed my liking for triangular textures in the last packaging post (the flower packaging) and still feel the same… which is why I love these! Why have a boring square box when you can have a cute triangular one!? They fit together too
Ok, before you scroll down for this next one… first look at it from far away and then close up – ok?
This can design by Ramm is clever! First thoughts? It’s a woman’s crotch - dislike!
But then I looked at the details… the paved road, the men in walking to their jobs, the lights in the buildings, the smoke coming from the chimney, the misleading first impressions – I really like this because it makes you look twice, there’s no denying that!
Lintar is oil… ordinary, yes. But I like the use of 1 fluid line which reminds me of oil leaking. I also like the colours – the creamy greeny colour is calming? It just ooooooozes niceness?
And lastly, something that made me smile – another clever one!
What do you think of if I say DIY tools? Orange and black? Yellow and Black? Elephants, Goats, Crocodiles? No, I didn’t think so! But look at these…
‘Knack’ is the work of Marc Monguilod… another student – I’m glad that students are getting publicity and J’adore it
There are more in the series but these were my faves. View the rest here
Let me know if you smiled at this too – just comment with – do it!!
