PangPang Brewery – Can and Label Design

It’s no secret that we love some good craft beer design. We’ve shared a whole lot over the last few years! Today, we’re sharing some work from PangPang Brewery, based in Sweden. We love their fun, colourful, design and illustration style – bringing some much needed fun to the beer category! While mainstream beer often gets stuck in ‘heritage’ and other ‘premium’ design cues, craft beer itself can sometimes end up being just a little too serious. We love the energy and excitement of these designs.

How could you not want to drink one of these!

Alon Bonder – Art

Alon Bonder is an artist and graphic designer who lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel. His intricate designs and illustrations are inspired by a number of sources, with a strong push from shamanism, ancient cultures and hallucinogenic plants. We love the mix of modern, clean vector illustration with more organic forms. Amazing!

Itchy Lice Treatment Kit

Daryl Surtees, a 3rd year Graphic Design student, created the packaging for a Hair Grooming Kit that treats the undesired lice on children’s heads. She made a concerted effort to create a kit with natural ingredients opposed to chemical ingredients. This more holistic approach was spurred by an article in which a mother sprayed insect repellent onto a child’s head and consequently the child succumbed from repellent poisoning.

Daryl also identified that the comprehensive treatment process would include having to use multiple products and to make this process hassle free she combined all the products into one convenient easy-to-use innovative pack.

Bloom Infused Sparkling Water

Taskeen Osman, a 2nd year Graphic Design student, designed a new approach to bottled water. Taskeen’s approach was to use water infused with edible herbs and plants containing the health benefits of each plant. The name BLOOM was chosen while she was looking for a synonym for “refresh”. Bloom captured her attention as it can be defined as more than just “a state of flowering”. The word as a verb, means to come into or be in full beauty or health; to flourish. Bio-degradable plastic as material was used for the bottle, this is recyclable, reusable and also compostable. The bottle cap is manufactured from PET plastic, as it is PVC-free and can therefore be recycled.

Good luck Daryl and Taskeen!

BMW British Touring Car Championship – Print Campaign

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.
