NORR – Packaging

This work by Slava Vovk for Swedish seafood brand NORR shows us all how design can change the way you see a category of products. When you think of tinned seafood, the chances are you have a very specific idea of what those products should look and feel like. However, this modern take on the category offers an entirely new way of representing and showing tinned seafood. It’s really opened our eyes!

The Witcher – Map of the Continent

If you’re a fan of the Witcher and have maybe read the books, played the games or watched the series on Netflix, you’ll know that story lines and time lines can get a little bit complicated. That’s where this interactive map comes in. It uses a timeline as a navigation tool, which then shows the user where certain events happened on the map. This helps you get a better idea of how much time has passed in the show and then also where things are in relation to each other geographically.

In terms of information design and how to take complicated narrative threads and make them navigable and understandable, you’ll have to look really hard to find something better than this!

Jeans for Refugees – Website

This initiative by artist Johny Dar takes old jeans owned by famous people, then reimagines them and sells them off to donate money to good causes. We love it!

It helps also that the website is really fun to use and look at. We especially enjoy how the pieces of fabric and thread come together in the type – very nice!

Parsons Branding – Website

Parsons Branding is a Cape Town based branding and design agency with some really lovely work. Today we’re sharing not just their website (which is amazing) but also their work too. We love the way the scrolling works on the website, which you’ll need to visit to see of course, but we also love their work. We included some examples of their identity and packaging work for a beer brand in the UK called Wolfpack which you can see below.

Rapscallion Soda – Packaging

Rapscallion Soda is a Scottish soda company with a hands-on, craft approach. To launch their product in the market, they turned to Freytag Anderson for their design, which we think is out of this world.

This modern, minimalist take on packaging (especially for the soda category) is such a breath of fresh air. How could this not create a huge impact the very second you see it on shelf, or in someone’s hand?

Amazing!

Srisangdao – Packaging

This packaging by Prompt Design for Srisang Dao rice is so clever. It’s made from recycled rice chaff, produced during the rice production process. It was made to bring a sense of specialness to this rice, which is considered some of Thailand’s finest. We love also, how they’ve numbered each bag, indicating to the user that what they have is high quality. And finally, to top it all off, the packaging can be reused as a tissue box.

This is the perfect example of beautiful design and sustainability coming together without compromising on either. More like this please!

Warbringer Warmaster Edition – Packaging

This brilliant work by Chad Michael Studio takes inspiration from old prizefighting posters for a new edition of Warbringer bourbon. This edition, ‘Warmaster’ is inspired by MMA fighter Josh Barnett and features some gorgeous illustration and a real appreciation for design.

We love it!
