What a fun, interactive design/typography hybrid for Secret 7″. If you aren’t aware, Secret 7″ is a musical project once a year where artists release hard to find music on vinyl. It’s always accompanied by incredible feats of design and creativity and this multimedia project powered by Squarespace is one of the best we’ve seen.
Users on the site can choose from seven different emotions, then use an online tool to create their own one-off piece of typographic art. What a great way to combine design, typography and multimedia all in one space!

Rice wine and rice vinegar are intricately intertwined in Chinese culture. Myths abound of their first invention, where both were discovered almost simultaneously. Interestingly enough, the Chinese characters for both wine and vinegar share a common root, the word YOU (酉), which is a wine vessel.
This character was in fact used as inspiration for this packaging work as the lid of these bottles is the first stroke one would make when writing YOU (酉). Further premium flourishes are brought through in both walnut and oak material on the packaging.
Well done Rong design – this is really exceptional!
FCB Inferno created this awesome campaign for the BMW British Touring Car Championship, which celebrates 60 years of the competition. To do so, they enlisted a number of illustrators and designers to bring to life the different eras in which the competition has taken place. Each execution shows the cars of the time and most importantly to us design fans – nods to the design trends of the time – from the 60s all the way through to the about ten years ago.

We can’t get enough of the cleverness and simplicity that went into this packaging for Bandido Coffee by Magpie Studio. From the use of the B as the mask a Bandit would wear through to really smart ideas about loyalty cards and even business cards – this ID is spot on!

We love seeing how digital and physical design can work together to create something special. This magazine, Zero, which was made in Central St Martins by Dagné Petraitytė, Inês Silva and Nathalie de Vallière, does just that. It uses both print and digital techniques to make a publication which is something totally new. In fact, you can download the first edition of the publication on the website for free.

Big Thor Energy Drink is a Brazilian energy drink with a really fun name and a great appetite for illustration. This new packaging concept, made by Typedstudio in collaboration with illustrator Gabriel Bueno is just so much fun. We love the high-energy look and feel of the illustration.
