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!
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.

When you get to design for ice cream, more often than not you get to really have fun and that’s exactly what design duo Craig & Karl did here for Baskin Robbins South Korea. Using their iconic look and feel, they added a huge amount of fun, personality and excitement to the brand.
We especially love the modular packaging, idea where you can create your own characters with ‘heads’ and ‘bodies’. You can see how ice cream cones themselves were the inspiration for this – so incredibly smart!
It’s no secret that we enjoy craft beer packaging projects! We often feature them because they allow designers the latitude and freedom to really push the boundaries and make something more out there and interesting. This ongoing project by Saywells Design for the Pueblo Vida Brewing Company is such a great example of how this can go right.
Because these cans are sold only from the taproom itself and not in any bottle store, the need for traditional branding as we know it is quite relaxed. Instead of needing a recognisable logo front and centre on the cans, for brand recognition, the designers are able to move it to the back and let their imagination run free – creating a brand identity that is recognisable entirely by its ‘unrecognisability’.
What an incredible project to be involved in, and what incredible output!

This package design for Edinburgh based chocolatier, Coco, takes design, art and illustration and melds them together to create a stellar packaging concept.
With design supplied by Freytag Anderson and artwork by William LaChance; this work is a direct example of how high quality design and creativity can elevate a product to the next level. Immediately upon looking at this, we can tell that it should taste good, be premium, offer enhanced performance or experiences compared to other drinking chocolate products – just because of the packaging! That’s the power of high quality design.

Being able to design for kids is a dream for many designers, as it often allows a lot of freedom to be expressive and colourful; to try and recreate the things that got you excited about design as a child.
This work by Pelin Maravent is exactly that kind of dream brief. Here, she designed the full corporate identity from business cards through to online touchpoints for Boni’nin Kutusu. Boni’nin Kutusu is a monthly delivered box of kids’ activities that incorporates learning, creativity and fun.
If the design is anything to go by, this is the kind of thing any child (or adult) would be happy to use!
