Well Branded: Say Cheese!

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Some pretty packaging to start off the week! Divine Dairy does an impecable job of looking modern and standing out with it’s use of bold color choices. At the same time, it stays true to it’s roots of French Style cheese with woodcut illustrations and rustic typography. A difficult balance to achieve I’m sure but designer Frank Aloi did an amazing job! See more of the cheese line on the Packaging of the World blog.

I have an affinity to men’s accessories. I think it’s the classic materials of leather, metal and glass that create such a glamorous scene. Designer Taylor Pemberton created this line of gentlemen’s accessories and fine goods for a school project.

Naturally, Cavalier Essentials has received quite a bit of attention; just look at those details! The subtle black-on-black notebook and the etched metal scream rustic sophistication. Unfortunately these products aren’t available for purchase just yet but Taylor says if the demand is big enough he’d consider launching his manly kits. Check out this interview with Taylor on The Madbury Club about the project.

Hands down one of the best students projects I’ve ever seen. I’ll be the first in line to purchase some of these beauties for my husband when they do become available but until then, we can admire the beautiful styling and impeccable pieces from his Cavalier brand!



Vintage Bake Sale!

Most bake sales I’ve been to entail a lot of plastic wrap and Tupperware but these photos by Heather Bullard are enough to wipe this memories away. Everything is just darling but I think the vintage props are what really take the cake. Make sure to check out the rest of her portfolio, it’s a real treat!

I admittidely buy products based on packaging. As a designer, I can’t help it. All the bottles in my shower have to match even down to the bar of soap! Maybe that’s a little more OCD than designer but I like to to call it “coordinating”. Either way, I’m constantly on a look out for pretty pieces.

Unfortunetly Bloom Organics isn’t available in the states but I can still appreciate the lovely packaging! Designed by Mahon & Band in Australia, the use of botanical illustrations is striking but appropriately elegant and refined for a beauty product line. I particularly love the added twine detail to the soaps!



DIY St. Patrick’s Day Treats!

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Even though I have bright red hair, I’m not the least bit Irish but that doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate St. Patricks Day like I am! This week I’ve got two DIY projects in honor of ol’ St. Pat and this first one is a sweet twist on a pot of gold.

Simply cut rice crispy treats into the shape of gold bars, wrap in parchment paper and gold foil and serve! Don’t worry about cutting them perfectly, once wrapped in the gold foil, they truly look like the real deal! Fun for a party, lunch boxes or even shimmering favors!
