Designed by Hovard Design | Country: United States

“Hudson Made’s line of handmade, small batch Beard & Shave Soaps is designed for the bearded man and his clean-shaven brother. These multi-purpose 3.5 oz. discs generate a lather that acts as both a gentle beard shampoo and an exceptional shaving cream.

The Beard & Shave Soap is available in three varieties—Original White, Cedar Clove, and Citron Neroli—each with a distinctive aroma. The personality of these three distinct soaps is conveyed through rich color. Unifying the packaging for the line is bold typography, which strikes a balance between contemporary simplicity and the heritage implied by nineteenth-century design.

The boxes were produced using traditional printing and letterpress typography on sustainable paper. Hudson Made’s packaging is manufactured locally and meticulously selected for a truly regional product.”

“Wiener Honig is a Vienna based brand specialized in producing organic honey. It was founded by two friends who missed their favorite honey while they where working abroad. Originally they started out with two varieties, now stocking over a dozen. Ranging from ”Apfelstrudel“ to honey with poppyseed.

The idea was to create a design that highlights the beauty of the product. The simple package displays the different colors and textures of the varieties. The honey speaks for itself.”

Mezcal Buen Viaje

April 26, 2013 | 3 Comments

Designed by Sake Group | Country: Mexico

“The challenge with Mezcal Buen Viaje was to design a bottle that represented the artisanal, traditional and handmade aspects of Mexico and at the same time that contained the spirit of our ancestors reflected in it. To accomplish it, we got our inspiration from Huichol art. The huicholes are an old community that makes handcrafts based on their daily dreams. Recent discoveries say that this community was possibly one of the first ones in producing mezcal.

The choice of painting the bottles black was done as homage to the black clay of Oaxaca, Mexico, one of the biggest known crafts in that state. The hummingbirds placed in the top corners of the logo represent power-animals; they’re considered one the most important symbols in ancient Mexican culture because this animals were the representation of god Huitzilopochtli. The flower in the center of the logo symbolizes energy and the strongest part of the maguey plant before it dies. It’s the plants last breath.

And last but not least, every different type of agave was identified with a different color at the bottom of the logo in a shape that represented the third eye.”

Student Work – Allison Chambers

Designed by Allison Chambers | Country: Canada

“In addition to brand development, this project called for creating a strategy to reduce packaging waste at baseball games. Nostalgic script from by-gone days inspired the logo. Fans can re-use their ‘Game Seasoned Nuts’ tin game after game, or even store a prized baseball. Season ticket holders get the branded tin holding their tickets, a coupon for nuts, and a baseball signed by the players. The goal of the project is to increase loyalty and fan base, while developing a sustainable, environmental solution.”

Ticketybrew

April 25, 2013 | 0 Comments

Designed by Carter Wong | Country: United Kingdom

“Briefed by entrepreneurial brewer, Duncan Barton to create the name and packaging for his start up business, Carter Wong set to work trying to discover a memorable name that would then lend itself to a graphic treatment when it came to designing the label.

Beginning initially with just two brews, a Belgian Dubble and a traditional Pale Ale, and in limited numbers it was important that we found a very cost effective way of producing and printing the finished label designs.

All parts of the brief fell into place once we’d decided on the brand name being a take on the word ‘Ticketyboo’, meaning everything is going alright and proceeding quickly, something Duncan’s business was certainly starting to do. Therefore the name ‘Ticketybrew’ was agreed and from then on the design solution virtually solved itself.”
