“The brief: To create an identity for a line of vitamins sold in upmarket health food stores and organic markets. Design a logo and packaging.
The solution:The wordmark’s hand-cut feel, paired with modern typography communicates quality. Deckle-edged labels with die cuts reveal the contents of the bottles. The warm brown of the bottles adds a nostalgic touch while protecting the contents from the sunlight.”

“Problem: How do you put the history of jazz in a box? Not an easy task, but one Smithsonian Folkways Recordings was eager to take on. Using the historic compilation The Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz as the starting point, a team of over 50 experts set about selecting 111 tracks tracing 100 years of jazz. In addition to the music, the set need to include liner notes by 30 leading writers and a treasury or rarely-seen jazz photographs.
Solution: Visual Dialogue referenced the graphics and color palette of original Folkways JAZZ LP covers in creating an entirely new design for Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology. The package combines a 200-page book and 6 CDs inside a translucent slipcase, befitting what Time magazine reviewed as “the single best introduction to America’s great musical form.”

“Although CD and DVD formats will certainly be replaced in the near future, I worked on a classification system which reduces the handling of plastic cases and complex envelopes, gathering all of the discs into a standard sized DVD box. The material used is made of simple recycled kraft chipboard, uses no glue and is printed in one color. The design allows generous space for the identification and description of content.”

“Blunts & Roses is a limited re-release by an artist by the name of Penuckle, offering more than just music on a disk, Savage Diplomacy explored the album and designed a package that fits the album/title. Every piece was hand crafted and much detail was added. Everything from stained wood to gold foil screen printing on parchment that represents a cigar wrap. Within the packaging, you will find a vinyl, a thumb drive with the music, and a album credit booklet.”

To communicate the intricate aspects involved in the series, a chest was designed with features such as a concertina with concealed magnetics, invisibly attaching each DVD case. The chests anonymous facade masks its immediate identification.”

“The A-1 Scrabble designer edition. The purpose of this project was to revive an old, but loved game: Scrabble. The idea was to excite people about typography by giving them the ability to choose what font their scrabble set would come in. The set would come in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.”

“SET is an award-winning, visual perception card game that is played around the world. For a design exercise, I wanted to explore a contemporary direction for its identity and package. The beauty of this game is in the cards, which feature iconic shapes and colors that, in a way, become a powerful identity in itself. For the logo, I was able to arrange these shapes into the word “SET” while keeping to the game’s definition of a set. For the packaging, I was inspired by the game’s origin: it was created by a population geneticist as a tool to understand different gene combinations. The design’s sterile and clean aesthetic is similar to the look of packages you may find in a laboratory.”

Tom Leggett started ACDSleeve out of necessity. After setting up a blog as a place to put all of his work, a pop up cd case concept was seen by the manager of one of his favourite record labels Big Scary Monsters who agreed to help set up ACDSleeve.
The case is litho printed, matte laminated and then die cut/creased and hand assembled. All cases are made to order for a limited time.
