Designed by Hambly & Woolley | Country: Canada

“GRAVITAS is a game of discovery – of who we are and how we have lived. There is no right or wrong answer. Although the questions call for reflection, they can be dealt with in a thoughtful manner or a more light hearted one. A certain savoir faire is accumulated in life that reflects our individual stories and experiences. Everyone can offer some GRAVITAS on life’s big questions. The game consists of 143 cards (three questions per card) totalling 429 questions.”

Designed by Hattomonkey | Country: Russia

“Hattomonkey has created a packaging design of hot sauce “Hashi” based on unique “non-censored” view. There is a huge selection of “Hashi” hot sauces: a very hot “Halapenio”, extremely hot “Habanero”, unbearable hot sauce “Cayenne pepper”, as well as wasabi and mustard. That special look #@$#! was created just as soon as we tried this hot sauce at the studio. It’s a comic stylized pack with logo consists of only symbols. So the exclamation balloon is to show an emotional wave. Designers have adopted a comic method. When it’s hard to express feelings through words they supplement text by pictures. Thereby the sauce pack content is reintroduced by shout balloon with jagged edges. Hattomonkey informal packaging design is hot and excited. This is not just a simple sauce on a store shelf, it shouts the same language you do “#@$#!”.”

Black and White Ball

Designed by Pentagram | Country: United States

“Kit Hinrichs and Erica Wilcott worked with the San Francisco Symphony to design the identity and promotional materials for the city’s famous bi-annual Black and White Ball—a 5,000 person black-tie block party that took place on May 31 and featured over a dozen performers including Seal, Blues Traveler and Afrika Bambaataa performing in six venues arrayed in front of City Hall.

The mark suggests the evening’s various entertainment venues at the same time as it references a modern city block. Its modular form allowed for a high degree of design flexibility and visibility across a range of communications from invitations to street banners while presenting an updated look and feel for this traditional city event that began back in 1956.”

Alice Chocolate

Country: Switzerland

“From the matchbox-like packaging to the slender bars of dark chocolate contained within, Alice Chocolate is an exquisite treat through and through. The brainchild of brand consultants Michael Felber and Steven Mark Klein, the pair are working to restore the tradition of Swiss chocolate by making their chocolate at a factory in Bern, Switzerland that has been around since 1919. Sourcing the chocolate (fairly and sustainably of course) from the Amazon, brings the tradition into the 21st century. Adding only sugar to the handpicked beans, Alice chocolates are exceedingly pure, free of stabilizers and additives and at 68% cacao content, the little wands are a pleasing not-too-bitter-nor-too-sweet blend .

Beautiful simple design for O DE OLIVA olive oil. The contemporary design of the bottles creates a feeling of quality and craftsmanship.

“Aimed at the European market and targeting a consumer concerned with the manufacturing process and the quality of oil. This oil will be included in the range of products bearing an environmental certificate, and will accurately reflect how beneficial it is to our health.

Art Direction: Louise Fili, Design & Lettering: Jessica Hische | Country: United States | Font: Archer

Bosco del Grillo is a very limited production Chianti Classico–fewer than 1000 cases were produced for this inaugural bottling. It is a blend of the finest Chianti Classico vinified by Geografico (80%) and a portion of the Merlot (20%) otherwise reserved for one of the winery’s two “super-Tuscan” reds. Distinctive lots of Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes are the result of year-round collaboration between a small group of Geografico’s member growers, Geografico’s staff vineyard manager, and Lorenzo Landi, Geografico’s consulting enologist.
