The bad news is that now I’m a student my shopping trolley doesn’t contain a lot of beautiful packaging examples, in fact probably none at all! The good news is that I can get my beautiful packaging fix thanks to Laura Berglund 🙂 I think her packaging for Reve is B-E-A-utiful and it has an unusual story behind it too… The Reve brand is in fact not about food, but a Hot Air Balloon company....

Today I chose to wear a top with a moustache on it, and it made me think; why do Graphic Designers like moustaches? What is the fascination? They’re just the nasty hair on an old man/ladies upper lip? Surely they should be disgusting? It’s not just me… A Milton Glaser-esque tribute for Moustache lovers by Trevor Conrad! Amaia Arrazola @ Behance Ariana Nicolay @ Behance ClubMedia @ Behance Maybe Graphic Designers love moustaches because they...

&  Scott Marc Berry, a 3rd year at Leeds College of Art. & I love the simplicity & sophistication of this project! Graphic Designers always seem to have a fascination with ampersands & who can blame us? They look cool & are a lovely way of saying & 🙂 Which is your favourite ampersand? I like the cute little tails on Harrington! & Such a cute ‘campaign’ pushing for the use of ampersands of all...

OSC, Reading? Let me explain… Oakford Social Club, Reading. As many of you will know, last week/weekend was Reading Festival 2010! I have been to Reading Festival for 3 consecutive years now, but this year I did wonder if I was at Glastonbury instead – the mud was pretty bad! Apparently I should have expected it to be muddy, ‘it’s all part of a festival’, but 2008 and 2009 were dry, sunny and lovely! Nevermind!...

Another of my Behance discoveries – Ersinhan Ersin. His work is really interesting: He hates 2D posters…. and I’m glad! I love this – the shadows are clever! And another great piece of his work… What a great idea – printing on rubbish bags for the ‘Rubbish Art Festival 09’. I also love the screwed up trash programmes: One of those times when going with the obvious works really well.

Jonathon Davies’ temperature associated colour based calendar for 2008 is ironically really cool or HOT… Depends where you come from I think!? What I’m trying to say is: I think it’s great! I love the front cover – a typographical summary of the year using an adjective to describe each month. Bold, colourful, simple and effective, the calendar is more focused on the visual but still functional. I think I would have prefered it to be one long piece, instead of...

This guy has been popping up for a while now. He’s only a year older than me but has already acomplished so much! Rishi Sodha. I am so jealous of his work: Ohhh it’s so pretty! Wow. The only word needed really, but I love that he has managed to use the rainbow colours, but kept it from looking tacky/child-like. How they’re folded is perfect because it shows a snippet of the whole poster… makes me want...

I love watercolour fashion illustrations, and I have tried my hand at blending watercolours several times but have not succeeded yet! Sasha Prood has deffinitely got it down to a tee though. I love her watercolour letters… the colours… the textures 🙂 The bleeding edges are really effective in contrast to the hard, square letterforms I really love the 3D element of this one! I am presuming that she achieved these effects is by using a stencil?...

Search ‘Zoe Bradley’ on google images and I challenge you to find work by her which is below amazing! Hah, what’s that, I win?! Yes… her work is actually amazing! If you like Yulia Broskaya’s paper magic then you will love Zoe Bradley’s installations, window displays and fashion pieces all crafted with paper. She has done work for Tiffany & Co., Selfridges, Luis Vutton, Vogue and even made Royal Mail look glamourous! I wonder how...

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...

As the second part of our Visual Art Award (follow up to Printmaking) we have been set a multidisciplinary project. This means that we can choose to use a range of disciplines from the ‘art’ family: Textiles, Graphic Design, Illustration, Photography, 3D, Painting, Collage…. I can’t think of anymore? haha The theme is Leisure which means, that like last time, it could be anything: Travelling, Cooking, Gardening, Collecting…. you name it, someone in the world...

I really like Playing cards anyway, but the Graphos Playing cards by Michelle Lam just take it to a new level of love…  You try and tell me these aren’t awesome… and you would be wrong anyway!! What do I love? Attention to detail. What do these cards have? Attention to detail! Perfect! B-e-a-utiful!! I found these whilst doing some research for Packaging design @ Lovely Package – check it out… and more 🙂 But I...

Last time I did a packaging ‘special’, I said I would try to do one every month – that was September 2009! So that didn’t go too well, but nevermind… I’ve had other things on my mind, but packaging in the background 🙂 Strangely, my computer doesn’t like thedieline website anymore so I have been using Lovely Packaginga bit more, and also have been taking the opportunity to look at packaging at college under the packaging project we are...
