Take A Trip To The Muzic Zoo.

It’s a little know fact that I have an affinity for zoo’s, (and a widely known fact that I have an undying love for music), so following an online presence titled “Muzic Zoo” should have occurred to me earlier.  The site features an incredible range of artists, from global stars to independent new comers, and puts their music on display for the public to rate, comment on, and support the artists of their choosing.  MZ’s interview section is also a fantastic way to get a unique perspective on the artists coming up in the charts via exclusive interviews.  The content on Muzic Zoo is updated daily, so there’s always something fresh.  Check them out by clicking any of the photos.

Blood of Grapes Wine Bottle


03

This creative bottle design was created by Belarusian designer, Constantin Bolimond. His idea is based around the concept of wine as the blood of grapes. The striking form is themed off a human heart to reference the fruit’s origin – France. The product is realized in black and white finishes, featuring a simple inverse typeface to communicate the wine’s label. The design brings a new meaning to the devil’s nectar.

Selling Wine – The Wine Retailer


Anyone who has ever designed food and beverage packaging knows how difficult it is to stand out in the crowded sameness of food stores. This difficulty is magnified in the wine category. You must, in essence, express the wine’s distinctive qualities in the tiny space of the label, the cap, and perhaps some carton or POS applications. To make matters worse, various laws and regulations require that much of the label space is taken up by small print. There is also very little cost-effective wiggle room in the basic package: the bottle. Bottles are universally more or less the same, and the sameness is dictated by standardized manufacturing, transportation, storage and displays. Wine quality plays a major role in this as well, as does consumer perception. Wine that comes out of a box or a plastic container just doesn’t feel quite right.

In the retail selling environment, education and information now also demand their share of space as more and more novices want to know about wine. For the wine retailer, and for the designer of spaces where wine is sold, all of this poses a challenge: How to display hundreds of seemingly similar bottles in an attractive, interesting and functionally effective way. How to make shopping enjoyable and easy, and how to help consumers learn more about wine.

Ingenious Japanese Label Design Ensures Food Safety.


Japanese design agency TO-GENKYO has designed an innovative hourglass shaped label for packaged meat which uses a special ink that changes color as ammonia is released inside the package. As the meat ages, it releases increasing amounts of the substance, obscuring the barcode at the bottom. Customers can quickly see if the meat is going bad – and when the barcode becomes completely covered, it can’t be scanned.
