Vintage labels are a wonderful source of inspiration for modern packaging design. While some are very simple and a little lackluster, others are rich in beautiful typography and delicate linework. Production limitations and costs of the time meant a very limited colour palette was normally employed, often with striking results.

“I made this album cover for my band packed into an A3 poster. After I folded it I realized that the paper has so much friction that it holds the CD without any glue or plastic.”

“What started as a love for beer and the need for more packaging pieces in a growing portfolio, this project developed into creating a brand for two guys who brew more beer than they can drink.
Pembroke Craft Brewery was born and the simple task for this job was to develop a labeling system for their ever expanding brew collection while sticking to their slick brand which highlights their outstanding work ethic to produce premium beer and beverages.

“The aim of the project was to rethink and re-brand the sanitary protection product category (‘Sanpros’), namely sanitary towels and tampons. A necessary purchase for women typically aged 12-55 years old. These products are mainly purchased by women and on occasion by men for women. The packaging should encourage the buyer to be confident of their purchase and not embarrassed. It should also be environmentally friendly and recyclable.”

“Authentic Greek olive oil press Manoli Canoli presses both its own olives along with those of the local Greek community and family groves. The label design delivers on this authenticity with texture, color, type and art that bring out the honest and pure old world character of this ancient craft.”

“Packaging for a new lighting company, Helios Lighting Products. Helios features recycled packaging with simple, flat graphics to support their low-cost and low-impact on the environment. Packaging for current circline lightbulbs are less than interesting. This is an attempt to simplify the information and packaging, as well as showing off part of the physical product.”

“Kansas City-based Glace (say it this way, “Gla-say”) Artisan Ice Cream is a more grown-up sweet treat expression, rich in texture and inventive flavors like Venezuelan dark chocolate, fleur de sel caramel and pineapple-cilantro sorbet. The corresponding brand expression is clean, sophisticated and a nod to the owner’s love of modern minimalism. At the same time, copy and color palette make it feel fun and approachable. The logo also incorporates a sly tie to ice cream with circles that look like melting “drips” hitting the floor, while tailored graphic elements make the identity feel fashionable and unexpected in the category.”
