“After almost a decade of stickered coffee bags, Stumptown’s founder Duane Sorensen decided they needed something new. He had a bag with a slit in the front and wanted a way to display a ton of information about growers, farms, flavors, and more. The result was to make colour-coded cards for each region, with latitude/longitude locations, elevations, descriptions and certifications.”

“Fashion brand, Nooka Inc. and innovative designer Karim Rashid have begun a collaborative relationship to create a timepiece based on the synergies of “democratic design” and “universal language”. “Yogurt”, Nooka’s first circular design, will utilize soft and flexible polyurethane, making it similar to the Nooka ZUB line of watches. The display incorporates digital hexagons that comprise the hour in the middle while the minutes circle the outer display of the watch. This watch will feature sleep mode, a 12 and 24 hour display mode and will be available in 6 different “flavors”: blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, lime, plain (white), and non-fat (clear).
Karim Rashid is one of the most prolific designers of his generation. Over 3000 designs in production, over 300 awards and working in over 35 countries attest to Karim’s legend of design. Karim’s work is featured in 20 permanent collections and he exhibits art in galleries worldwide. Karim is a perennial winner of the Red Dot award, Chicago Athenaeum Good Design award, I.D. Magazine Annual Design Review, IDSA Industrial Design Excellence award.”

“Merum means ‘pure and unadulterated’ in latin. Merum Estate is set in Pemberton, Western Australia, a pristine location where 85% of the region remains under native vegetation. For this mid-level range of wines, Manifesto Design created a fantasy ‘floating world’ consisting of a collection of plants and animals endemic to the area. The working ecosystem revolves around a towering Karri tree, a native species for which Pemberton is renowned. The botanical styled illustration works both as a whole, and also when separated into four segments, a quarter appearing on each label. The labels are then embellished with silver foiling and a raised UV varnish for tactility.”

“The A-1 Scrabble designer edition. The purpose of this project was to revive an old, but loved game: Scrabble. The idea was to excite people about typography by giving them the ability to choose what font their scrabble set would come in. The set would come in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.”

“The new Single Source lager is a single minded brand that heralds its own craft process. A uniquely New Zealand batch-brewed beer, it is unswervingly true to the land and the people from which it originates. Like the resulting flavour, the design needed to embody its real character, integrity and undeniable class.
The design approach was to place the product at the fore – the idea of ‘The journey of creation’ is the story of creating a beer that fits the brewer’s exacting ideals. The name Single Source is the process – hand picking, the beer’s traceable origin and craftspeople, the bottle as a protector, the signature line as the human imprint on the beer’s creation.
We honoured this rich brand story through every facet of the packaging. The black bottle adds to our objective of preserving freshness but it also allowed Single Source to look different within the beer category, gave shelf appeal and provides a striking counterpoint to its label. The signature Monteith’s silhouette was retained to ensure Single Source sits within the Monteith’s family of beers, but by using a black glass bottle we are protecting the contents from light and heat (black bottles are ten times better at protecting the beer than green bottles) to retain the beer’s unique characteristics.”

“The assignment was to design a low-price pasta brand. I chose to keep it one color only and printed on unbleached cardboard, to keep costs down.”
