Wheat is Wheat is Wheat | Peddy Mergui


06

In an exhibition titled Wheat is Wheat is Wheat, designer Peddy Mergui wraps over a dozen basic food products – from fruits to coffee and salami – in high-end designers’ patterns and big brands’ famous packagings in order to elicit reactions based on brand recognition. Meet Apple’s iMilk, Prada’s flour, and Burberry’s butter. “High-end brands are not selling the products, they are selling the lifestyle,” Mergui tells The Verge by phone. But now, those brands are beginning to branch out, “extending products to a lot of fields that did not use to be there.” Mergui says that people who have seen his exhibit have had a strong response. “People really liked it,” he said. “I felt a bit confused. You’re just buying flour, or milk, or whatever – this is a basic thing.” Wheat is Wheat is Wheat is currently showing in San Francisco at the Museum of Craft and Design and will be there through June 15th.

Tokaji Wine Bottle by Szabolcs Moldovan


general 01 02 03 05

Take a look at the stunning packaging design for Tokaji wine bottle created by Szabolcs Moldovan, Romania. All elements of the packaging are hand carved by an artist, further giving it value. This would be possible due to the fact that the aim of the product is not mass production. Materials used are wood and metal/precious metals. The wood wine holder symbolizes a cathedral that protects the wine, and even after the wine is consumed, the packaging can be reused as an artwork on a shelf or table, while the label that contains precious metals can be taken off the bottle and hanged on the wall of wine cellars, to further push the idea of reusable packaging, packaging that has value, and should not be thrown away or discarded. With all the work that goes into packaging these days, it is still heartbreaking to see that they end up in the trash.

Firewood Vodka in its newly designed packaging by Constantin Bolimond. The lumberjack inside of your guests will show its true buffalo plaid colors when they feast their eyes on this outdoors-man classic.

Firewood – pieces of wood used for burning in furnaces, fireplaces or a fire for having heat and light. [This definition of Firewood gives Wikipedia.] Vodka the Firewood, warms not only Your body, but Your soul too. With just a few sips of the bottle contents, You don’t need to burn firewood.

Naturally Clicquot Bottle Cover


Naturally-Clicquot-600x378

Veuve Clicquot has come up with a new form of innovative packaging made with potatoes and recycled paper that can keep the bottle chilled for up to two hours. Created by French designer Cédric Ragot, the Naturally Clicquot bottle cover is made from potato starch and recycled paper, and is likewise recyclable. The cover can keep a bottle of the brand’s Brut Carte Jaune cold for up to two hours once it’s been chilled in the fridge beforehand. A user-friendly handle allows for easy transport. In 2011, Belgian designer Mathias Van De Walle created a foldable origami-style champagne bucket for Veuve Clicquot that could be reused up to four times.

Lomography – La Sardina Metal Western Edition


general Picture 1 Picture 3 01

“Belle Starr” and “Coyote” were the names chosen for this oxidized metal Western edition of La Sardina. These 35mm cameras are equipped with a wide-angle lens, multiple exposure capabilities and a rewind dial. The vintage design of the camera reminds us to the fish tin cans. La Sardina metallic edition is packed in on a wooden box simulating the Fish Market wooden crates. It stores the contents in two different layers. The first layer includes the camera with flash (plus colors filters); the second layer stores the book, poster & manual and add-on product, depending on the edition. For this edition, we included a set of postcards inspired on the Western theme and a linen photo accordion booklet. All the items were packed in on a laser burn wooden box, same as La Sardina Caviar Edition.” Montserrat Llaurado worked on the creative direction, concept development and product design management of the edition; including packaging, product add-ons, book design and worldwide marketing collateral material for the launch campaigns throughout the online, retail and wholesale channels.

Stranger & Stranger Wine Packaging


Stranger & Stranger wine packaging delivers character and creative flair in a new series of wine label designs. These decorative paper sleeves wrap around wine bottles in a fashion inspired by prohibition-era packaging. Various ornate sleeves display a broad range of subjects spanning from quotes to recipes to vintage-style artwork. Unique packaging serves as a teaser for the consumer and lures them in to investigate what kind of wine is in the bottle beneath. Inspiration for Stranger & Stranger wrapping comes from Truett Hurst’s No.13 wine. Each package maintains a distinct and elegant design which inevitably catches a second-glance from fine wine shoppers.

The Negro Cookie.


Normally I can relate a blog post to a personal experience, or explain why something specific interest me.  But this is just downright hilarious.  My staff and I laughed our asses off for about 30 minutes the first time we all saw this.  Japan has some of the wildest stuff, and the ‘Negro Cookie’ is near the top of the list.

20 Ingenius Simplistic Packaging Designs.


Packaging is much more of an essential part of product marketing than many people realize. Its very true that there’s a nerd like myself somewhere scientifically working out what shapes and colors attract different ages, genders, and types of people. Packaging design has taken many different turns as time has gone by, but recently the designs catching my eye the most are the more simplistic packages with clean and clear graphic design incorporated into the final product. I found 20 examples of some good ones, check the method below.

People around the world have different tastes in alcohol (and different budgets for it), but recently I saw some exquisite examples of how different alcohol companies all over the world display the best of their best.  Its a pretty well known fact that I happen to be quite the alcohol connoisseur myself, and from the subtle to the extravagant, all the different examples I saw, all demonstrate a mastery of packaging design. My personal favorite is the 007 Bottle, but let me know which one strikes you as the leader of the pack.
