What an amazing, amazing idea! This poster, designed for the Habitat NGO by BETC Sao Paulo, dissolves in the rain – leaving behind an insecticide that is only harmful to mosquito larvae. This can significantly lower the risk of disease in poor areas, without harming the environment or other animals. Have a watch of the video below, explaining the project, for all of the details!
For Gradex ’18 we created this Best of 2018 video, highlighting all of our achievements for the past year. What a year of highlights! With some incredible work being done by our students and some really great award wins and accolades, it was one of our best ever.
What a great project from Belarus! This package design was done by Fabula Branding and we must say – what an incredible job. We know what these type of chocolate boxes tend to look like and while they may be comforting or nostalgic, they’re not really at the cutting edge of appealing design. However, this work really takes the assorted chocolate box to the next level.
We could do with some work like this in South Africa please!
It takes a long time for a brand to become so well-known that it no longer needs a name attached it and can survive on just a logo. This is the choice that Mastercard made, with the help of designer extraordinaire, Michael Bierut. It’s a really bold move, but we must say – one we appreciate. A brand has truly reached ‘brand nirvana’ when it can remove its name and still be instantly recognisable.
Definitely a polarising move though… What are your thoughts?
Bioreshop is a Spanish brand that focuses on refilling containers and minimising waste. Of course, to get this right, it helps to have packaging that looks really great. To do that, the brand turned to Barcelo Estudio, who created this awesome concept.
This work shows how strong design can continue to be applied across an almost endless number of labels. With a strong ‘b’ to work from, the possibilities are endless when it comes to patterns and other applications.
