Date Your Type

Type Connection helps with choosing the perfect accompaniment to your font. I love this line on the site: Life’s too short to live alone. Choose a main character to match.

The Johnnie Walker 1910 Commemorative Special Edition Bottles

Designed by Love, The Johnnie Walker 1910 Commemorative Special Edition Bottle range has been awarded a Yellow Pencil for packaging design at the 2012 D&AD Awards. It’s not hard to see why. Each bottle has different illustrations on it which when put together form one massive illustration. I like how it’s a modern day version of Chinese porcelain which is supposed to signify Johnnie Walker’s journey from Scotland to China.

Appetite for Design

This just arrived in the office earlier this week. I love the wafer like cover that has been bitten off and all the scrumptious ingredients to great food packaging design inside. Designed by Victionary.

SPACK Sound Packaging

Introducing SPACK – the first portable active loudspeaker developed in Chile. Not only is it pretty rad packaging design, it’s also eco friendly seeing as the SPACK speaker system is made from cardboard boxes.

Shaking Has No Effect

I love me some instant photographs. Designed by Say What Studio from France, Shaking Has No Effect is a box filled with 300 instant photographs shot in 2011, using a Fujifilm Instax Mini camera.

This detail I especially love – the box has two compartments: one for Autumn and Winter photographs and one for Spring and Summer photographs.

Ekaterina Koroleva

Based in Berlin, Ekaterina Koroleva’s fashion illustration is a dreamy mix of watercolour and pencil drawings. This is art that I would love to see hanging on the walls of an artsy cafe.
