Designed by ico design | Country: United Kingdom

“At Christmas we always look to enlarge on the idea of a simple card. Christmas is a time for fun and we take the opportunity to explore the more eccentric side to our creativity. 2008 was no exception and we embarked on devising our own festive product – the now famous ico turkey apron.

For the chef who wants to make a standout sartorial statement, bright pink is hard to beat. Lovingly produced and hand packed by a dedicated team of seamstresses, ironers, folders and packers in the ico factory. This limited edition item of practical Christmas apparel puts novelty socks and sweaters to shame. The perfect compliment for a festive feast.

But the secret is in the packaging. The pink aprons were ingeniously folded origami-style to imitate a plump turkey breast and then vacuum sealed in plastic meat packets. At a glance the resulting item wouldn’t have looked out of place in a cold counter at your local supermarket. In fact, to prove their authentic appearance, we took a fresh batch down to Smithfield meat market one cold December morning to see our turkeys in context, annoying several busy butchers in the process.”

Designed by COÖP | Country: Australia

“A family of animal characters were created by combining the square, circle and triangle. The characters were silk-screened to a 1680 X 500mm modernist growth chart for kids.

Honest, pure and devoid of superfluous details, the product imaginatively introduces kids to basic geometric learning and spark the imagination through the inclusion of memorable animal facts.”

Designed by It’s Everyday™ | Country: Romania | Fonts used: Neutraface

“Canah was our baby: the first commercial producers of hemp in Romania, with big plans. All very eco-friendly, involving the use of local farmers and traditional methods. We did their naming, branding, site, copywriting, promo materials and packaging.

Actually coming up with the final products involved some pretty serious research into spectrum-blocking glass, which we ordered from Switzerland, to protect the fragile hemp oil. We wanted to keep the actual hemp imagery to a bare minimum, avoiding the other connotations that hemp products carry. Sadly the team which realised our designs managed to mess them up, but Canah remains one of our favourite projects.”
