Many thanks to Big Fish Design for sending in this beautiful packaging for Belvoir Fruit Farms.

“There’s something rather regal about the mangosteen fruit. Maybe it’s the deep color of the rind, or the pure white fruit it holds, or the density of its nutrients. Whatever it is, it’s worth capturing. Which is what we’ve done in the packaging for XanGo’s latest product, a multi-use serum made from all the goodness of the mangosteen. Traditional patterns speak to its origins, and hand treated type and brush stroke textures speak to natural organic beauty. The slide box reveals a product as unique as its custom die line.”

Thanks to Richard at Help Remedies for sending us the package designs for their new products. This is one of the best examples of product concept and design. From the naming down to the witty copy and simple, clean design, it doesn’t get much better than this.
“Our packaging is made of molded paper pulp and a bio plastic made primarily of corn. We use these materials because they are interesting to look at, and they are compostable—which means one day, they might become part of a large tree. Maybe you can cut down that tree and make it into a speedboat.
Visit this space daily to experience the ongoing struggle of “help I have a headache” as it attempts to biodegrade.”

“The name of this white wine, Turonet (“hill” in Catalan) refers to the physical space where the cellar is at the Mas Can Colomé Estate. The label design has been thought to be tagged and numbered by hand to transmit the values of craftsmanship associated with this small family winery. We have replaced the cap with an original pin and added a seal as a symbol of quality. This elegant presentation is complemented with the individual case and the special bottle, engraved with the name of the winery.”

“LUCIA was inspired by Lucie Bernier (president) of Pure living products. Her many travels to Europe, Asia, etc has led her to bring back through the years an assortment of Renaissance designs on fabrics from Florence, ceramic work from Portugal, Spain and Italy, etc. She wanted to create a line of specialty soaps (now candles also) that reflected these rich textured designs. Each design reflects old world charm with a modern touch. The logo LUCIA in black & white reflected the ‘cleanness’ of a soap product and at the same time counter-act the rich and ‘busy’ textures of the old world designs. Also, this was a product that was designed in our contemporary times so the logo had to refect this. The box construction of the soaps was inspired from old, pre-war soap designs from Spain & Portugal. The candle box contruction was inspired by the ‘Pannetone’ cake found in Italy.”
