Yaroslav Shkriblyak is a Ukrainian designer and typographer who did this work for Kyiv Tinctures, a vodka made and bottled in Ukraine. We love how he was able to create something so striking using a limited colour palette and some really gorgeous typography.

We recently had Just Design present to our second and third year Graphic Design students. They are a multi-disciplinary design agency with a focus on branding, packaging and innovation. They shared some of their work with us, showing the incredibly high benchmark they have set for good packaging practice and the icing on the cake for us was having two Academy alumni, Jolize Jacobs and Maderi Hoffman, presenting the work!

Real Handful snacks are a ‘nutritious snacking brand’ that aim to offer a fun way to snack on healthier options, instead of falling back on potato chips, chocolates or any other options which, while they taste great, are not very good for you in the long run.
Their previous brand identity was focused around the idea of ‘energy’ and they decided that they needed a full re-brand in order to position themselves better in the market. This they did with the help of Midday Design Studio and illustrator George(s) and the results are plain to see. With a bold, illustration-forward design, they immediately create impact and break through the proverbial clutter.

We all know that the best fish and chips come wrapped in newspaper. However, that’s not something a brand or restaurant can really own (and as we know, even litter can be an important touchpoint for your brand). What Doyles Seafood, an Australian brand did, was to redesign their entire corporate identity with the help of The Creative Method and designer Emma Lucia Newnes, taking inspiration from newspapers of old.
We see how this applies to the menu, which is presented as a ‘vintage’ newspaper, but also the packaging itself, with traditional fast food cartons and containers printed in newspaper-inspired motifs.
We love how the concept of this project was applied so strongly all the way through – it’s not just a new menu with the same old cartons, it has been designed from the ground up and this kind of strong branding is something consumers are coming to expect more and more.
Kudos all around! Now who is in for lunch? We know a great fish and chips place…
What incredible work by Here Design for Riso D’uomo, an Italian rice brand! This package design is inspired by old cathedral tiles from the Duomo in Milan, because the fields where this rice is grown can be seen from the Duomo itself.
With packaging this beautiful, there’s no need to have a cupboard! This is the kind of thing you want on show in your kitchen. It shows again just how important good design can be and how it can elevate something as (admittedly) boring as rice to an incredibly desirable object.
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.

When you look at the work that Pentagram does, it’s always top notch. Here, they’ve redesigned a Korean skincare company and created something anyone would be proud to display on their bedside table or bathroom cabinet.
Taking inspiration from old oil cans and other containers, they have created an entirely unique soft-touch range for Dr Jart+ with smart details such as; a wide pump signalling a more viscous product like lotion while a round pump is used for oils and liquids.
It wasn’t just a repackaging exercise though, but an entire rebrand – Dr Jart+ always used the ‘+’ symbol in their branding but Pentagram took it to the next level, using it as a logomark which can change based on the skincare range and what it does.
When it comes to incredible packaging and product design, it doesn’t get much better than this! Have a look below!
