“The client and project overview: Earlier this year we gave ourselves a challenge: to re-imagine the traditional approach to packaging coffee and create something that we could share with our clients and friends – and so, Wishbone Brew was born. Conceptualized and created by the team at AKA and assembled together by hand, it’s been a long time in the making — but worth the wait in order to share & enjoy it with some of our favourite people.
The design and creative solution: Our main objective was to re-think traditional packaging methodology. Used as a tool to showcase our ability to think & work beyond convention, we determined from the out-set that drawing inspiration from uncommon sources was essential to the success of the project. Cue the Turpentine: An attractive shape, an airtight seal, something unexpected. This container delivered on all counts, but how to break from the unfriendly, industrial, and for all intensive purposes toxic associations we as consumers have made with that form?
A bright yet soft colour palette combined with elegant and approachable serif type helps soften the brand against the harshness of material. A quick sanding, prime, and dip in paint helps add some individuality among the products and re-enforces the handmade nature of the product, No two wishbones being exactly the same.”

“Sexyfood doesn’t just sell insects, it sells unique experiences.
The concept itself is very simple: why don’t you surprise your friends with something different, like an insect-tasting session? Sexyfood provides all the ingredients for an unforgettable evening. The appearance of the products – the logo, style and packaging – all help to create a special experience. The luxurious packaging has a definite air of mystery. There are 28 different product packs altogether, each pack identified with a number and each sauce with a pattern.”

“In August 2013, we began a quest to create playing cards fit for display at the legendary Waldorf Astoria, the gathering place for royalty and the ultra-wealthy. For the past 14 years, Cohen has performed Chamber Magic there, in a private Waldorf Towers suite, for sold-out audiences including Warren Buffett, David Rockefeller, and the Queen of Morocco. In 2012, Cohen became the first magician in a half-century to sell out Carnegie Hall.”
