What a fun design and illustration for this wine from Argentina by Zarate Insa. With a label inspired by a story of how the head winemaker fell into a trance and was driven to create a red blend like no other, this awesome illustration calls on old-school horror movie posters. From the illustration style through to the typography and the layout of the design itself – this is just spot on.

The humble soup can has been a design icon for decades. Let us not forget how Andy Warhol immortalised an original Campbell’s Soup can all those years ago. But over time, even icons can become forgotten.
In an age where canned goods are perhaps being looked down on and judged – when we’re trying to get everything as fresh as possible – how can the can compete? This was a problem that was facing Bulldog Drummond, when they set out to make an appealing, exciting can with true shelf impact. And we can argue, quite rightly, that they updated the soup can with this Campbell’s Well Yes! range, with great photography, good use of colour and fun typography.

Jana Pellissier, one of our 3rd year students, recently helped create this beautiful wallpaper for The Foodbarn restaurant while interning at Room 13. It is quite aptly called ‘Ambrosia’ after the food of the gods. If you’ve ever eaten at The Foodbarn, you’ll know exactly why this makes sense!

It’s always interesting to see how brands grow when they’re using great design and brand-thinking from the start. This can often set them apart in the early stages and really help their product shine through. That’s exactly what happening in this case, when a start up laundry detergent company partnered with Republic Group in Hungary to create a new detergent brand. Using all of their design, strategy and branding skills, they were able to create the brand you see before you – something that stands out from the reset immediately. Something you’d love to have in your home!
That’s the power of great design – these are not just plastic packets you keep in your laundry cupboard or out of sight; these are actual design objects you could put on display. If only we could have
Calling all typography fans! This design for Tonelada Coffee in Mexico by YuJo! Creatividad aplicada hits all the right notes for us! With classic styling and bold, big typography – this is the type of coffee we’d keep on our shelves, regardless of the taste!
Good publication design is harder and harder to find these days as we see a huge shift away from print and toward digital. What’s happened though, which suits design nerds like us endlessly, is that as print gets harder to come by it becomes more niche. That means that people will take bigger risks and spend more to make something worth keeping and cherishing, rather than something to simply throw away.
Enter Creanet, a Spanish design studio, who designed this incredible architectural magazine simply called ’12’. With a die-cut design that you can’t deny, this is how print stays relevant: Becoming super high end and absolutely collectable.
Now just to get our hands on one of these!
We never share work we don’t like, but this work by Rob Bailey and M&C Saatchi London for Transport for London is a real favourite. Using his trademark simplified style, Bailey has created a series of posters for the London public transport network that are a true work of art.
When it comes to high end design and illustration meeting perfectly – it doesn’t get better than this!
