“Choosing plastic wrap for non-perishable items is often a choice that is unjustifiable for the real needs of the product. To address this problem, Corinne Pant looked at the real needs of electronic parts packaging. In a poetic and very functional gesture, it shows us once again that “less is more”.”

A simple hand-printed canvas bag is a great reusable packaging option to organize and store items that are part of a collection, like these stamps.

“70 kilometers outside the city of Barcelona is Alt Penedes, a region long renowned for its Catalan wines. In the village of Torrelles de Foix is a plot of grape-growing land known as Terrer de Sapera. From this land comes the new wine on the block, a merlot called Merula. The name Merula translates to blackbird in Latin—mirlo, also the source of the name of the merlot grape, whose deep wines are said to resemble the color of blackbird feathers.
We designed the label, capsule, and a six-bottle case for Merula. As it’s a new winery producing a grape not typical in Alt Penedes, we opted for a non-traditional approach. Building on the name Merula, we worked with illustrator Miguel Ordoñez to create friendly blackbird.”

“After a split-7″ release on Siluh, the debut album “Planet, Planet” (Klimbim Records/Cargo) put the spotlight firmly on the Berliner lads from Elyjah. For us it was clear: this CD is fantastic. Both playful and atmospheric, it leaves a lasting impression. To ensure that that message was conveyed to the customer, we fired pellets at all two thousand covers. They circle like planets around a fixed point. Returning to a time in which men had morals in their hearts and cloth handkerchiefs in their trouser pockets, we put the band in Herr von Eden suits and then printed the large-format photos shot by Norman Konrad by hand.
Typographically, we continued this theme with two typefaces from that time period: Memphis, from Emil Rudolph Weiß (1929) and the wonderful Wieynck Gotisch from Heinrich Wieynck (1926) were put into use on an old Heidelberg printing machine.”

“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.”

“The label takes its form from a doiley which is a reference to the types of food that are typically consumed with this variety of wine. The delicate pattern of the doiley creates a sense of elegance and quality that appeals to the target audience and visually sets the wine apart from the competition.”

“The assignment was to design a package for any chosen product. This packaging concept for I ‘love’ honey was inspired by the honeycomb. The bottle can be reused as a long glass and the package as a decoration.”

“Chocolate maker Mr Popple creates his bars using only raw cacao and organic, natural ingredients making them super healthy and super ethical. Each bar has a fun name which references the powerful nature and health benefits of the individual ingredients. These are each supported by a simple, solid graphic which is printed onto recycled card using rubber stamps and water based inks. The material for the boxes was chosen because of its rough appearance reflecting the raw nature of the ingredients. Using this technique means each time a box is printed, the graphic elements vary slightly in strength and position giving the customer a pack as individual as the handmade product inside. The chocolate bar inside is wrapped in soya based plastic, so in an all this is a totally environmentally-friendly product. Mr Popple’s Chocolate stands out as looking quirky and unique compared to the mass produced confectionery in the health food shops where it is stocked.”

“For a range made to be sold mostly overseas, a playful, yet clean typographic approach was taken on the Australian cheekiness and playfulness. A range of four varieties and a carry bag was created, all in the same style.
This brief was presented by AGDA (Australian Graphic Design Association) to selected students from New South Wales with the intention to see how one brief would be differently interpreted and executed by different designers.”
