“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.”

“Does your brand stink? At Turnstyle we asked ourselves some tough questions: Is innovation in the air? What does integrity smell like? What about dedication or humanity?What about Hard Work? How does that smell? Should a Fortune 100 company smell like a fortune? And what if a Fortune 1,000,000 Company smells like a million bucks?”

Lovely Package® reader Abdul who is an editor over at UK based designduct.com, alerted us to this great article on Ancient Roman oil lamp branding. Below is a short excerpt from the article which can be read in it’s entirety over at Discovery.
“Firmalampen, or “factory lamps,” were one of the first mass-produced goods in Roman times and they carried brand names clearly stamped on their clay bottoms.
The ancient dumping in Modena contained lamps by the most famous brands of the time: Strobili, Communis, Phoetaspi, Eucarpi and Fortis.
All these manufacturers had their products sold on the markets of three continents. Fortis was the trendiest of all pottery brands and its products were used up to the end of the second century A.D.”

More great work for Japan’s Askul from Stockholm Design Lab. I love how the product name is shown falling down into the pile of typographic garbage.

“Main corporate element is checkers design. Repeating pattern draws one’s attention and is quite notable among solid colors on other producer’s packages. It is easy to-replicate on any bearers and formats. Checkers bring emotional note in package design. Usually lamp packages are either aggressive bright or high-tech cold. Textile checkers pattern is more friendly and humane, it has some home comfort sense.
In addition, a lamp image is placed in the corner for some symmetrical lamps. So you can make a whole image placing two neighbor sides of lamp packages. This brings some game aspect into package design making it more interesting and attractive.”
