A Junod Absinthe – Packaging

Wow! Wow! Wow!

This package design for A Junod Absinthe is something amazing! You can see this design is inspired by not only the ingredients that go into absinthe, but also the crazy visions and stories that are associated with the drink.

With design by Randy Mora and lettering by Le Monsta, this is really some of the best packaging you’ll see this week, or even this month!

Harley Davidson – Common Ground Posters

We really enjoyed these posters for Harley Davidson Canada’s Common Ground film by Zulu Alpha Kilo. Great illustration, smart art direction, awesome type design and a simplified colour palette make these posters something really special.

We read somewhere that all the best poster designs should be good enough that people want to steal them and put them up in their own homes – these really pass that test!

You can view the film here.

EIDOS website

EIDOS is a multimedia project by Berlin-based photographer Tobias Faisst in collaboration with Transform, which aims to relook at how photography is represented in the modern era and the interactions between photography and computer-generated imagery.

It’s so refreshing to spend some time looking at a site like this, which deliberately aims to push the boundaries of web design into a new space. Whether you ‘like’ it or not is irrelevant, this is really about pushing the entire medium forward and seeing what can be done.

Have a look at the site and see what you think!

Stefan Draschan – Photography

Stefan Draschan is a German photographer with a great eye and most of all – some incredible patience! This set of photos, People Matching Artworks, is an entirely unstaged project where Draschan waits for people to appear in front of art wearing matching clothing. No funny business. No posing!
