“Colorfold is an origami boutique + workshop based in Vancouver, BC. The store sells local hand made items and accessories that are made in studio or locally. The challenge was to design gift packaging that stands out through practicality and originality while embracing the Colorfold concept of community and craft. The result is an origami cube with 4 pockets on each wall. Separate message cards containing personal messages from family and friends are folded into 3D shapes that go inside each pocket at a time. The packaging thus takes on the role of delivering both the gift and the messages accompanying it, and becomes an essential part in providing everyone with a better experience.”

“eBay just launched a new set of reusable boxes as part of a pilot program to make shipping a little greener.
Starting in October, the company is giving away 100,000 shipping boxes to eBay sellers, and encouraging reuse. According to eBay, if each box gets used five times, the program could protect nearly 4,000 trees, save 2.4 million gallons of water, and conserve enough electricity to power 49 homes for a year.

HUB teased Nike’s top baseball retailers with a series of captivating invitations, each revealing more and more information about this year’s retailer retreat. First, recipients received a woody car with a surfboard save-the-date. Then, a postcard came in the mail. And, finally, the pièce de résistance: a crate full of both oranges and orange batting practice balls and their official retreat invitation.

“This is my concept for a hypothetical extension of the 826 Valencia tutoring center and store for Baltimore called “The Stuff of Dreams.”
Like the existing 826 stores, the 826 Baltimore store sells re-purposed and redesigned products around a theme. For “The Stuff of Dreams” all products sold can be employed to aid you during your active night of dreams.”

Some great work for a carrier bag using the packaging medium itself as the inspiration for the design. (In many parts of the UK, plastic bags are also referred to as carrier bags.)
“Inspired by a transparent bag I was using to collect my rubbish, I created a pair of carrier bags to quite literally carry the shopping.”

“Luckipocki is a young and fashionable tote bag brand. Their products are sold on-line. Therefore, the products need a package that can be mailed. We have designed an envelope which has a very bold tote bag graphic. The red tote bag graphic is eye-catching and clearly deliver the brand nature. This packaging can be easily recognized in a chaotic mail environment.”

Simple type-driven design for the delivery boxes for a product distributor and wholesaler. The type tessellates together nicely from one box to the next.

“This ephemera was designed by the folks at Shine Advertising to dress up a pocket knife mailing sent to their clients as a promotional item. You might ask if that is really letterpress? Yep, actually that’s four color process plus two spot color letterpress printed one pass at a time. That means that lil’ piece of paper went through the presses seven times. (six color passes and a letterpress matrix score) Certainly not a typical use of letterpress, but that’s why it was so fun to print it. Laying down color one at a time means a little guess work as you build the color density for the final image, but fun to watch it unfold. The process printed picture was from CSA stock images and worked pretty well to break out into plates even though it started as a heavily line screened image. The plates were printed with a 90 line per inch screen on Mohawk Loop Husk 160lb Cover.”
