Designed by It’s Everyday™ | Country: Romania | Fonts used: Neutraface

“Canah was our baby: the first commercial producers of hemp in Romania, with big plans. All very eco-friendly, involving the use of local farmers and traditional methods. We did their naming, branding, site, copywriting, promo materials and packaging.

Actually coming up with the final products involved some pretty serious research into spectrum-blocking glass, which we ordered from Switzerland, to protect the fragile hemp oil. We wanted to keep the actual hemp imagery to a bare minimum, avoiding the other connotations that hemp products carry. Sadly the team which realised our designs managed to mess them up, but Canah remains one of our favourite projects.”

“Sweet’s Candy needed a rejuvenation for their century-old product and a face lift for their decades-old packaging. Something to match the quality of the product and launch it into a category all its own, Gourmet Taffy. The solution came in the form of the Sweet’s custom Taffy Twist Box. This unique design leveraged the talents of a local manufacturer to get out-of-country prices at an in-state establishment. As a result, Sweet’s has now sold over 750,000 units and counting of Signature Series products based on design alone. Now that’s tasty.”

Designed by Bruketa&ZinicOM | Country: Croatia

Chiavalon is not just any olive oil. It is made in the Croatian region of Istria, from the same olive groves that once belonged to Ancient Roman emperors.

The designers chose simple small bottles and placed them in a recycled paper bag. Ruth Hoffmann, the project’s Art Director said, ‘This is a totally natural product and we wanted to accentuate that. You take this paper bag and the rustling is reminiscent of the weekly vegetable market, where the farmer puts fresh vegetables or fruits in a paper bag.’ Furthermore, the paper bag keeps the bottle from becoming greasy.

Killibinbin Wine

December 19, 2008 | 0 Comments

Designed by Mash | Country: Australia

“The main US distributor of Killibinbin wines was always commenting on these wines as being ‘Killer’. A tongue and cheek approach and a play on words lead to the final idea, taking this ‘Killer’ comment as the theme for re-packaging the Killibinbin wines. Mash developed the illustrations, taking from old horror flicks and their gruesome killing scenes. All text was hand written on front labels and the print finish is on a bulky uncoated stock to give the feeling of an old horror movie flier.”

Student Work – Andy Mangold

Designed by Andy Mangold | Country: United States | Fonts used: Caslon

“Monopoly, in spite being the classiest of all board games, unfortunately is packaged just as boringly and uncreatively as every other garbage board game on the shelves. So, I decided to repackage it… turning the class up to 11.

All of the boxes are made out of chocolate brown mat board and skinned in cream arches cover. The final package is just over 10″ x 10″ x 1.5″ and includes smaller containers for all of the various pieces and cards and a laser-cut holder for all of the houses and hotels.”
