“The packaging is for Buzzy’s, a boutique gourmet candy shop that targets women. They wanted a feminine approach in selling their best selling line of peanut brittle, which includes original, white chocolate dipped, milk chocolate dipped, and dark chocolate dipped. Buzzy’s uses 7 ingredients to make their original peanut brittle recipe.
I approached the design with the idea of “simple ingredients made with love,” using romance to woo women. The line of packaging tells a story of peanut meeting sugar and how their relationship develops into the 4 stages of love: attraction (original), romance (white chocolate), passion (milk chocolate), and intimacy (dark chocolate). Since the packaging is about a story unfolding, the packaging has a preforrated tab to reveal the bright red lining–a color associated with love, passion, and romance. The die cuts give a glimps of the product and are associated with the line graphics per assortment.”

I love this concept! I can just see people drinking straight from the bottle with this package.
“Sexy Tina. 35 % vol. Milky strong liquor (irish cream). Also it is recommended for fans to drink from a throat.”

A new line of deliciously scented, French-milled soaps by the Denver-based soap impresario and designer Margot Elena Wells. TokyoMilk soaps come in four scents (Rosewood, White Linden — my favorite, Exotic Woods and White Vetiver), and are wrapped in charmingly illustrated linen paper. Wells, a self-taught illustrator, designs all of the finely detailed packaging. In addition to soap, she also has a line of clever, hand-drawn note cards. Attach a card to one of the soaps, and you have an inexpensive but appealing host or house-warming gift.”

“O&M are pioneers of ammonia free colour technology. To help the brand come front of house Container were commisioned to produce a new identity and deliver packaging that reflected their offer of salon professional results without harsh chemicals. The forms developed for the wet range are reminiscent of milk bottles giving a visual cue to the formulations within – that they are clean, natural & nourishing. The styling products make a bold statement that helps to create visual tension when merchandised with O&M’s other products on shelf.”

“Swedish advertising agency Milk has turned the classic white Arla milk carton black.
It is a campaign for WWF’s Earth Hour. A worldwide event encouraging people to raise environmental awareness by turning off the lights for one hour.”

“Fat Pig is a totally organic milk chocolate bar and is currently available in one flavor: delicious. It has none of the bitter aftertaste of regular milk chocolate nor is it cloyingly sweet: it’s just pure, creamy excess.
It’s already the favorite chocolate of Contagious Magazine.
The Chocolate Nerd said “Nice chocolate! It’s super creamy, quality milk chocolate and organic too. The bars are more substantial then I thought – a weighty 3. oz each.”
And Divine Caroline added “I honestly don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed a piece (okay a whole bar) of chocolate as much when I pigged out on Fat Pig. It’s delicious!”

“This was a personal experiment in form, function, and fun. The goal of this redesign was to use a standard milk carton as the canvas to create a clean, modern, and functional design yet still approachable for the average consumer.”
