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 […]

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. With the name now well and truly etched in Kiwis’ brains (once you’ve […]

A drop of dutch courage

News

2012 was undoubtedly the year of the craft beer. With new varieties being launched left right and centre we were spoilt for choice down here in the South Pacific when it came to an evening tipple. One such beer that lept onto our shelves late last year was Cavalier Courage. While this fine blend is indeed a tasty drop it’s far from being the latest fad, the difference being this beer has a story to […]

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 […]

Apples for the Kiwis

News

They may be small and tucked away down there in the depths of the Southern Hemisphere but New Zealand does in fact have a thriving creative community and an exciting design scene, as regularly demonstrated through the recent LWC Friday posts. Unfortunately, it’s not large enough to warrant an all singing, all dancing Apple store – not quite the same foot traffic as Regent Street. Enter Yoobee, the Kiwi’s gateway to the wonderous world of Apple. Yoobee is […]

Is size everything?

Jottings

I was at a design lecture recently by David Kester of the Design Council of which the focus was the need for small businesses to engage with design – incidentally a great lecture by the way. This learning was swiftly followed by a question to the audience around what the industry is doing to make design affordable to these companies. An answer wasn’t offered just an affirmation of the need. So what can we do? And how do we […]

Twenty Years of Design by Famous VS

News

Think back to 1992, the world of graphic design was a very different place. For me it was more about making my mum birthday cards and pictures of our family to stick on the fridge. For the world, graphic communication was still dominated by print. The internet was in it’s infancy and smart phones were a mere daydream. Branding was king! The AGDA  (The Australian Graphic Design Association for the Brits) is the peak national organisation for professional […]

Symphonic Pixels {Melbourne}

Awesome agencies / LWC

Social conscious is something us designers often consider. While our friends are doctors or teachers slowly saving the world day by day, we (or at least I do) jump at the opportunity to use design for the greater good – seems like our friends over at Symphonic Pixels have a similar approach. They are an independent design studio with a passion for creating work that effects innovative changes in the world by focusing on meaningful, […]
