The new packaging for Microsoft’s Office for Mac 2011 is easy on the eyes for a change. We’d love to know who is responsible for this work.

“In efforts to reuse, versus recycle, I designed a package that would enable the HP Ink consumer to send back their empty ink cartridge in the self addressed, same box that the new ink cartridge is bought in. Conceptually, HP would start a “refilling” option, where the user would order their next cartridge online ahead of time and receive a discount by entering a the code found on the box.
I chose to use recycled chipboard as my material and to screen print the graphics (using only process inks cyan, magenta, yellow and black).
The ink cartridges are packaged separately, allowing the consumer to purchase only the ink that is empty – Black or CMY. The package also provides a simple and quick solution for recycling empty ink cartridges.”

“The first copies of Eames Century Modern will endure the rigors of modern parcel delivery systems jealously guarded in a solid chunk of furniture-grade plywood. Hand printed with our signature air-dried inks in 30 versions, each block includes a keyhole so it can stand (or hang) as a 21st century monument to 20th century design principles.”

“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.”

A packaging concept for HB pencils which doubles as a container and is intended to be displayed on ones’ desk. Considering art and design supplies are largely geared towards creative people it is constantly surprising how dreadful their packaging solutions can be. We’d love to see more of this sort of simple, functional design hitting art store shelves in the future. To solve the problem of mandatory labeling, removable cardboard sleeves could be employed.

“Düller is Japanese designed and produced but takes many of its cues from German minimalism and Bauhaus by valuing the philosophy that less is more. Düller believes that design has its own evolution and that form and function are naturally selected — in this design world, adding something means nothing.”
