Bolu Tea {Curious Design}

News

Bolu are purveyors of fine quality tea, directly sourced from Fair Trade plantations in Darjeeling, North India. With a beauty like this on their hands, Curious knew it was time to call in the experts. Curious worked closely with Think Packaging on this project. After exploring many options, the packaging ninja came up with a revolutionary solution, which culminated in a perfect balance of aesthetics and function. Visually the pack is harmonious—due to the integration of […]

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 […]

Curious {Auckland}

Awesome agencies

It seems Auckland is the place to be for tasty design these days, adding to our recent post on the lovely Hardhat we now have packaging specialists Curious to introduce to you. With a generous handful of international packaging awards under their belts, these guys know their stuff. Recent lovelies include a big old shake up of New Zealand favourite Phoenix Drinks.

Profiles – Jonathan Ford {Pearlfisher}

Profiles

Once upon a time packaging design was the poor cousin of print design. It was at the centre of the consumer world, it certainly wasn’t as ‘cool’ and you rarely got to recommend foil deboss! Fast forward to 2012 and the discipline is right up there with the best of them thanks to some incredible work throughout the industry over the last few of decades. One such company that has been instrumental in this change is Pearlfisher. With the […]

Parallax goes Jotto

News

Infographics and Japanese rice wine don’t often go hand in hand, in fact this may be a virgin pairing – courtesy of Parallax Design over in Adelaide. After being knocked sideways by their wonderous branding work (featured here earlier in the year) we were tickled pink when this little gem landed in our lap. Enter Joto, Sake for the contemporary North American market. Joto is one of those lovely category shakers we all crave as designers […]

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 […]

SomeOne pours another one

News

More great work from SomeOne, this time it’s 40% proof. You might be forgiven for thinking that in the last week DJ had become some sort of an unofficial media outlet for SomeOne… pause to think what that world might be like… but the truth is they’re just spitting out great stuff at the moment, like it’s going out of fashion. Five eclectic projects have vaulted out of the their door in a matter of days, […]

It’s not the winning, it’s the taking part…

LWC

Who are we kidding, we all love winning! Didn’t we all have at least one dream at uni of wrapping our hands around a Yellow Pencil and making an emotional speech thanking our mother and our pet guinea pig for their support?! Yeh maybe that’s just me but one thing is for sure… it’s awards season! The Pentwards will kick off our run of trophy handing with the ceremony taking place in Paris as we […]
