Following the Pop & Street Art series with So-Me, James Jarvis and Delta last year, the iconic Malibu liquor bottle is now given a makeover by three magazines. Each publication showcased exceptional creativity, uniqueness and expertise: Vice added a drip effect to the Caribbean color theme; Clark Magazine took a DIY approach, stripping it down to a simple white, and packaging it with stencils and spray paint; while Shoes Up went all out with a shoelace design complete with matching “shoe” box.

The new IVI classic comes in glass bottles, with the traditional pop-art tops, the intense curves and the historical IVI logo. Its minimal appearance expresses the force of the past in the present.”

LH2O is a research project on a new form for Água de Luso (Luso water) and the result of a collaboration between Pedrita studio and the Luso brand. This project aims to find not only a new form for this liquid, but also to come up with a bottle that illustrates the qualities and unique properties of Água de Luso, which has been part of the life and body of the Portuguese for over 150 years. That’s what made us – naturally – add a new element to the chemical formula of water, redesigning the way we see, read and know Água de Luso.

Thanks to recent design graduate Amanda for sending in this concept for a ‘man-friendly’ tea.
“Forget the sweet smelling stuff that comes in the pretty little jars with the pretty little bows and a flower on the front- Texas-T is for men. Finally there’s a hot tea men don‘t have to be ashamed to drink or buy. It even ships in a discreet crate – so manly.”

A conceptual package design, which at this time is unaffiliated with Coca Cola, created to drastically reduce the cost of both initial manufacturing and recycling.
“A convex logo substitutes colorfully sprayed can. Naked can help to reduce air and water pollution occurred in its coloring process. It also reduces energy and effort to separate toxic color paint from aluminum in recycling process. Huge amount of energy and paint required to manufacture colored cans will be saved. Instead of toxic paint, manufacturers process aluminum with a pressing machine that indicates brand identity on surface.”

Isolating the ‘N’ from Nairobi not only reinforces the brand name, but it also makes for a nice sophisticated design element for this Japanese line of coffees.

“I recently did work for a start-up company in downtown Manhattan. They were on a very tight budget and needing everything to be printed from their standard 8.5×11 printer. One particular challenge of branding them was the packaging for their line of teas. They had over 20 teas, 6 varieties, each with their own unique description, health benefits, and brewing instructions. Needless to say, it was a fun challenge in real-world information design applied to packaging. I was able to arrange all of the necessary information on single labels which they adhered to the stock bags they had. The labels were small enough to fit two per standard letter size paper- saving not only money, but also paper.”
