Designed by Construct | Country: United Kingdom
“London design studio Construct has given the branding of London’s famous Claridge’s hotel a thorough overhaul. Because it is a working hotel with a huge number of items traditionally branded (from teapots and egg cups through to slippers and dressing gowns), Construct’s task of not just branding, but implementing a consistent and cohesive sense of identity throughout the hotel and the objects within it was by no means straightforward. In fact, the rollout of the new branding is ongoing throughout this year as there are so many different ideas to implement across a huge range of items.
As well as introducing a sophisticated colour palette of jade, gold, white and black, bold architecturally inspired chevron patterns appear on the inside of bags, envelopes and on various objects, publications and goodies guests at the hotel are lilkely to encounter.”

ILoveDust’s Southsea office is located in a former butcher’s shop, so it’s only fitting that they created their self promo around the idea of “choice cuts” and packaged it to look like fresh wrapped meat.

Designed by Bulldog | Country: Malta
“Over the years, our company has been very comfortable with presenting a witty face to the world – from our choice of name to the imagery that people associate with Bulldog.
We developed this visual pun to commemorate our 20th anniversary on February 10th, 2010. The piece fuses a crossword puzzle with our logo to create a playful visual shorthand for what Bulldog has done over the last 20 years.

Designed by Sruli Recht | Country: Iceland
Very unique packaging from Iceland’s Sruli Recht. The packages are constructed from corrugated cardboard and then appear to be either stained or painted in a process that looks to be applied by hand. His products within the packages are equally as unique.

Designed by The Creative Method | Country: Australia
“To create an interesting and engaging invitation to The Creative Method Xmas party. It needed to illustrate what we do but also create a high level of interest and anticipation for the party. It needed to be humorous and memorable. It was also required to work as a new business piece outside of the Christmas invitation. We based the idea on an imaginary pharmaceutical tablet that would solve their creative issues. Initially they were emailed a doctors prescription, followed by the package in a discrete paper bag. The invitation and the tablets were loca
ted inside. The party included staff dressed as doctors & medicinal shots administered by transvestites. The box and invitation are used as a new business teaser.”
