“Coffee Supreme’s take-out cups were already known in NZ and Australia for being unusual, distinctive and quirky, so while we knew from our re-brand brief that they wanted the brand to ‘grow up’, we felt it was important they didn’t lose their individuality.
Ideally they also needed to convey Coffee Supreme’s love & enthusiasm for the handmade craft of making coffee, that they were confident and quirky, approachable and supportive, and staying true to the good old fashioned standards the company started out with.”

“For 20 years, Nespresso has been the king of premium coffee pod systems, its exclusivity guaranteed by restricting capsule sales to specialist stores and online only. But when its design patents expired in 2012, the market for Nespresso-compliant capsules opened up to a host of competitors.
Our friends at Cafépod were first to market with a concise range of coffee pods exclusive to Waitrose stores. With just the name in place, our role was to create a brand identity, packaging and web presence with the potential to encourage Nespresso loyalists to switch to a brand from the supermarket shelves.
Inspired by Cafépod’s desire to democratise a premium product, we set about expressing the social aspect of the coffee moment with a pair of clinking cups. The aesthetic combines gourmet cues, vibrant taste and contemporary character, all carefullly balanced to capture our everyday luxury brief.”

“85% of the maple water harvested is returned to nature immediately after filtering to concentrate its sugars in the maple syrup production process. Élodie and Mathieu Fleury, a sister and brother whose parents are maple syrup producers, decided to take a different look at this natural resource and recover this maple water, separated from its sugars, to create the world’s only still water of its kind, a made in Quebec product of irreproachable quality: an innovative idea in a traditional sector with a sustainable development approach.”

WDR – World Design Rankings announced the rankings of countries based on the number of design awards won at international juried arts & design competitions and awards.
United States ranked as number 1 among the 47 represented countries, followed by Turkey, Hong-Kong, Italy, United Kingdom and South Korea. The WDR – World Design Rankings aims to provide additional data and insights to economists and journalists regarding the state-of-art in design and arts industry. The ultimate aim of the ranking is to contribute to global design & art scape through advocating and highlighting good design, arts and architecture.
WDR Representative Frank Scott noted that this is the first time that such an international ranking for design & arts has been implemented and added “We hope to ignite further competition in the design industry and arts by providing the world design rankings; we believe this is very important for the world, because more competition would lead to better designs; better designs mean longer-lasting products, more ergonomic designs, highly socially responsible projects and so on. At micro-level, the world design rankings help designers understand their world-wide position, however most importantly, at macro-level the world design rankings will push the participating designers, artists and architects to do better, to come up with better products and designs which in turn would create positive impacts for our future generations”.
