Strange Love {Marx Design}

Awesome agencies

Love is sometimes strange, I’m sure we all know that by now but what is StrangeLove? Well my friends, let me first set the scene. Marx Designwere tasked with packaging StrangeLove into a gift piece that cafe owners would want to display on their counter. The problem being, StrangeLove is in fact an energy drink. And we all know what that conjures up in a designers mind, 2 for $5 star bursts, bright shouty colours and vomit […]

Lovely trinkets from Melbourne gem The Company You Keep. Handsomely said from the horses’ mouth “from development and application to execution, we work with our clients to ensure their brand’s resonance and continued success, because you are the company you keep”.

We started this little blog of ours as simply a bit of a social experiment and a way of cataloguing all the great stuff we unearthed the world over. And there’s a lot of great stuff out there. Every now and then however, you unearth a little gem. Without naming names we think there’s already quite a few graphical trinkets within these four virtual walls, but recently we fell upon these beguiling buccaneers, namely IWANT. Plying […]

Helms Workshop {Austin, Tx}

Awesome agencies

Huge fan. Huge. Of Texas’ finest Helms Workshop. Huge, for emphasis. True craftsmen of the all-Americana typographic cunning, an art that I’ve always found absorbing. Back to Helms, naturally an award-winning creative firm with a broad range of clients but for me, it’s their packaging work that’s particularly right on point. Helms “combine smart, strategic thinking with wild-eyed creativity in a highly collaborative environment, producing powerful ideas and unexpected solutions that bring big results to businesses […]
