The cows which produce this milk are free to roam an unused forest all year round. The milk is supposed to taste better, the theory being that happy cows produce better milk. We like the way the tree graphic reflects the typography as well as the simple yet charming addition of tissue paper covering the bottle cap. Nominated for a Japanese 2009 Good Design Award.

Packaging for the Aviara AM/PM health drinks was designed by Axis41 in Salt Lake City. Aviara is a San Diego-based nutrition company that developed the AM and PM beverage system to help promote a healthy and vibrant life. The AM drink helps to boost energy levels at the start of the day. The PM drink helps to calm and soothe the nerves at the end of the day.
The flowers represent the botanicals that make up the formulation of these two drinks. Growing plants and flowers communicate health, which is exactly what these drinks promote. The bold, clean typography contrasts with the illustrated style of the flowers and helps to convey a sense of health and purpose. The designs were silk screened ink on frosted glass, allowing the color of each drink to become the color of the packaging.

As far as we’re aware, this is only a concept at the moment. As the tea infuses, the bird unfurls, which is the part we’re really impressed with.

“We supported Holmegaard in developing a new brand strategy celebrating the legacy without letting the past define the brand. The pivot point was taken from brand surveys and internal interviews. It was clear that the brand should target a younger audience. A new strategy was needed to project the strong, emotional quality and Nordic design values present in the products. Therefore, the key objective was to transform an old fashioned brand and to grasp the sparkle in the products. To turn an occasional usage of the products to an everyday experience without losing the high-end design and quality feeling.”

“A neighborhood grocery needed to refresh its visual identity to more accurately communicate its fresh & friendly brand. The design takes inspiration from the simple palettes of homespun goods & the elegance of a southern matriarch’s home.”

“Domo, the Japanese stop-action character and meme celebrity, is appearing this fall in an elaborate 7-Eleven storewide promotion, and his toothy brown face is plastered on everything imaginable. Tons of signage of all over, collectible Slurpee cups (and Domo’s own custom flavor, Fuji Frost), character straws, coffee cups, and some truly inventive and funny packaging design for the hot dog containers. There’s even Domo schwag like hats, t-shirts, and books. Evan Brody, the marketing manager for Slurpee, told Brandweek that 7-Eleven’s consumers “love crazy Japanese shit.”
