Cinema du Parc – Posters

These posters by Les Evades Montreal are so good!

Cinema du Parc is an independent cinema that focuses on showing the best of the best – specialising in foreign and classic films. These posters, which reimagine classic movie posters with a modern, more design-forward twist are such a great way to get people excited about what’s showing – how could you not want to book a ticket?

Jee-ook Choi – Illustration

Jee-ook Choi is a Korean illustrator with a simple, considered style we just love. And despite the rigours of her style, there is a strong thread of humanness and playfulness inside all of her work. We especially love her illustrations of balls bouncing through her compositions, they’re so much fun and capture so much movement with so little.

Do give her a follow on Tumblr over here.

Grönstedts Le National – Packaging

Every now and then a project comes around that makes you really sit up and take notice. This work by Nine Stockholm for Grönstedts cognac is one of those! What’s especially interesting about this cognac, Le National, though, is that it is only produced once a year in very limited quantities – never more than 1500 bottles. This creates an interesting design challenge, as every year they need to create an entire experience that is differentiated from the last, while still being premium, desirable and ultimately collectable.

It is clear that Nine, the agency behind this work, met the brief and more – this is some of the most exquisite packaging design we’ve seen in a long time. From the way that illustration is treated through to the box, the typography and the entire experience of the packaging – this is nothing short of world class.

Have a look at more of this work below.

Pepsi – Year of the Dog Cans

To celebrate the year of the dog in China, Pepsi created these limited edition cans which were available in very short supply. The online-only method of getting them created a lot of hype around the campaign, with loads of people logging on for a chance to get their paws on these collectables. We especially love the dog kennel packaging concept!

Such a great example of how tactical use of limited edition design (with really great illustration) can make a brand more current and desirable.

Costa Rica Philharmonic Orchestra – Print Campaign

What a fun campaign by Garnier BBDO in Costa Rica! They were tasked with creating a communications campaign for the Costa Rica Philharmonic Orchestra’s series of concerts celebrating music in film and their solve for this problem is just so right.

We see three different iconic film ‘baddies’, beautifully illustrated, playing the orchestra’s instruments. Perfect!

Our favourite has got to be the stormtrooper playing the violin with a lightsaber!

 

Moog Audio – Print Campaign

It’s an interesting challenge to try and visually bring to life the idea that better speakers offer more clarity and more depth to the sound of music, than cheaper ones. But that’s exactly what Bleublancrouge did for this print campaign for Moog Audio. In each execution we see beautiful illustrations of all the noises one might hear in a song, with a speaker that only allows one of those ‘noises’ out.

Such a smart way to solve this problem and so well illustrated! Check the campaign out below.

Birds of Tokyo – Ryo Takemasa

We love this! Japanese illustrator Ryo Takemasa collaborated with the Tawarasha Design Studio to create this beautifully illustrated Bird Handbook, highlighting some of the common birds that can be found in and around Tokyo.

Sadly they were never actually for sale and were handed out at a Tokyo Midtown event, so to all the people who have a copy, consider us very jealous!
