logitech’s brown box

leave a comment »

How a plain box makes a difference.

This box never has to deal with a store shelf. It doesn’t require layers of plastic – so you can open it easily. It can use fewer materials than our retail package – which can make recycling simpler. And it would love to be recycled (where facilities exist).

It’s just one small thing we’re doing to make your experience, and the planet, a little better. your choice to buy online helps make it possible.

A brown box may not be pretty, but we think the results are beautiful.

I think so too. Thank Logitech.

minimalist packaging

with one comment

An interesting experiment by Antrepo4, taking everyday brands and making them visually cleaner first, and then going one step further by removing everything but the logo from the packaging. This is sure to make any brand stand out from the crazy messy shelves that exist today.

absolut 72bian

leave a comment »

The first ever collaboration of many between Absolut and China artists is revealed with the unveiling of the Absolut 72Bian, the name taken from a phonetic translation of the chinese word ‘变‘, which means change. Used to symbolise the chinese mythical character of the Monkey God, who can morph himself into 72 different changes. The limited Absolut bottle design is sadly, not much different, save for a printed cartoonish interpretation of the Money God. Interesting?.. barely… Ad campaign? Forgettable… Ticking the Chinese marketing box? Absolut-ly!

fedrigoni 2011 calendar

leave a comment »

This is a gift that keeps giving! With 12 boxes, nested into one another like Russian dolls, Paul Betowski created a perfect calendar for Fedrigoni, the Italian paper mill, that shrinks as the year goes on “…like sand through the hourglass, these are the days of our lives…”

brewdog’s “the end of history” beer

leave a comment »

No no no no no no no no.. No no no… noooOooo…

Scottish brewery BrewDog has reclaimed the world record for the strongest beer in history with a 55% alcohol beer which it has named “The End of History.” Only 11 bottles will be available, and each bottle will come inside a stuffed animal – seven Stoats will be available at GBP500 and four grey squirrels at GBP700, making it also the most expensive beer in history. That’s USD$1000 a bottle!

Taking printing to its luxurious extreme, just as it had with luggages, Goyard is producing a book celebrating its history, seven years in the making. All for just 5000 euros. Yummy!

“Goyard, in collaboration with Devambez, announces the launch of the first book devoted to the legendary Parisian trunk maker.

Continuing the heritage of the prestigious collections from the 1920s, this extremely limited edition publication resonates with and celebrates the golden age of luxury travel, from horse-drawn carriages to the great transatlantic ocean liners. The book is presented within a made to order trunk. Each client is now invited to make a named copy of this highly collectable book into a unique piece.
One is not only able to choose the colour of the case’s canvas, but also to affix specific initials and stripes upon it. Copies are numbered from 1 to 233, validating the rarity and authenticity of both the book and the Goyard trunk which encases it.
This magnificent art book uses traditional letterpress techniques for the text, features its own watermarks and is printed upon custom made vellum paper à la forme of Arches Mills. Goyard and the Éditions d’Art Devambez have succeeded in simultaneously creating a precious object in its own right as well as a captivating tome, both of which are characterized by a true sense of splendour.

the scent of crystal

leave a comment »

Tokujin Yoshioka has done it again with a tightly edited aesthetics and a clear visionary idea. Now the problem is we all want something is we cannot have… yet.

“For this symbolic work, Tokujin set up the concept of “Wearing the scent of crystal.”

While Tokujin has been conducting several collaboration projects with Swarovski, he was commissioned to come up with a concept design for a product that symbolizes Swarovski.Rather than by rearranging visual shapes, he pondered of designing a perfume bottle with a throughly new concept, which is to affect the senses.The intent of the design is to bottle crystal within perfume, and to let the crystal fit in the scent.

Even this project had not been realized, Tokujin developed a new perspective.”

anon – every story has a diamond

leave a comment »

“ANON was specifically created to challenge and stand out in a very tired and clichéd premium diamond jewellery market founded on the “diamonds are forever” sentiment.

Pearlfisher’s approach was to confront this sentiment and turn it on his head by focusing on the person, moment or occasion rather than on the diamond. ANON references unknown authors of love, poetry and folktales  its understated and ambiguous nature allows the brand to take a step back, putting the consumer in the spotlight. This is reflected in the new strapline: ‘every story has a diamond’.

The ANON identity is a simple triangle, echoing an ‘A’ shape, and representing the facets of a perfect diamond/ perfect balance of life. Each of the two bespoke packaging boxes comes wrapped in an ‘origami’ style outer, which then reveals a box with a triangular shaped key inset into the lid. Removing this key and inserting it into the lock springs open the box to reveal the jewellery.”

An interesting idea by Patrick Sung, saving lots in wasted container spaces. Just wondering if without the strength of a straight plane, does the packaging lose some of its strength? via doornob

Vintage packaging has that handmade crafty feel that is very in at the moment. I love how due to the lack of technology, and the nature of printing misalignment that the colours overlap into beautiful patterns! via Lovely Package, see more at the Vintage Matchbox Flickr Pool.

clever little box

with 2 comments

Puma spent some time, looked inwards, and found that the perfect solution to the shoe box problem is to not have a box at all. Designed by Yves Behar of Fuseproject, the solution is a simple piece of folded cupboard in a cloth bag. Easy to use, and easier to reuse.

the apple ipad unboxing experience

leave a comment »

Apple has a thing with packaging their brand experience. Latest case in point being the iPad. Core77 has a great series of photos up, showing how Apple allows you to undress their products (yes the sexual slant here is on purpose), showing you little by little, and covering up the ugly and the unnecessary. What results is as pure an experience of the Apple brand as visiting any of their stores or using any of their products.
