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…”

jeff koons for kiehls

His work broke records at auction houses, and  has graced countless products, including a fierce looking BMW. Now Jeff Koons is partnering my favourite apothecary Kiehls in the latest interpretation of the Creme de Corps. A great happy colourful gift just in time for Christmas! via The Luxist.
