“This is a foradacaixa® hand crank music box. As you can see in the pictures, the mechanism has an original package made exclusively for it. Every tune is available at the product page but at least two of them can also be heard here and here.
The illustration and graphic design of the package was made by Maria Helena of the 2.2 design studio.”

“The face of Marrow is three people. But behind the scenes there are about twenty of us with a strong background in branding and design from all disciplines – from naming and writing, to print and packaging, to interactive and animation (not to mention music production, which is really what this is all about!)
We realized that it was essential for us to bring the same kind of inspiration to the branding of our own work as we would expect ourselves to deliver to any of our clients. Our first CD, ‘Quiet Desperation’, was beautifully designed, but it was still just a CD – and CD’s aren’t enough anymore. Thinking outside of the CD case was liberating.

This is absolutely amazing. Be sure to read the full description and watch the video below.
“Uceroz is a new music brand by Ivan Palacký, a musician playing an amplified knitting machine called Dopleta 160 (180). The title “Uceroz” is an abbreviation created from two Czech words : „učesán a rozcuchán“. It consists of two editions, where „učesán“ represents a smoother kind of musical expressiveness however „rozcuchán“ tends to be more experimental.

The packaging for the complete season of Six Feet Under is absolutely amazing. Designed to look like the cross section of a graveyard, this package comes complete with fake grass on top as well as it’s own gravestone. We’d love to know who designed this if anyone can shed some light.

“The Swedish rock band Bob Hund released their single Fantastiskt (fantastic) as a one copy vinyl record that only allows 30 playings. The record was placed on a turntable with the lyrics etched on the turntable lid. It sold on eBay for US $3,650 and became the most expensive record ever sold in Sweden.”

“Graphos Playing Cards are designed to inspire other designers, and also lay people to be more attuned with design through an increased awareness of the importance of typography in a fun and easy-to-understand way.
Each card from the deck of Graphos Playing Cards will tell the unique story of a specific area of focus in typography. All spades highlight on the importance of “anatomy”; hearts on “classification”; clubs on “glyphs”; diamonds on “type setting”. Fonts are focused on sans serif, serif, script and decorative.”

“This is my Masters thesis project at HDK in Göteborg. It highlights the issue of increasing long-distance relationships and the drawbacks of computer mediated communication.
I wanted to include the reflective, relaxing qualities of crafts as way to build an emotional bond between users and the object.
It also hopes to open a dialogue about how we will value our digital artifacts in the future – our digital heirlooms.”

“Zinkplaat is an Afrikaans pop-rock-blues-fusion band from South Africa. The name Zinkplaat is the Afrikaans word for corrugated metal. This, their fourth album comes shrink-wrapped with a scratch-off ink layer on the front and back, as well as a guitar pick to scratch the ink off with. The album’s name ‘Mooi Besoedeling’ translates to ‘Beautiful Polution’. We believe this is a very good functional solution to the fact that a simplistic clean cd cover design stands out most from all the clutter on a store shelf, yet is very boring once bought. However one wants to read the album as a concept, people seem to love the scratch-off part.”
