I’m wondering whether it’s just me. Does any body else think that the new Stella can design is problematic?
BAD DESIGN, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.
I mean…really bad design.
Can’t be un-seen. :(
“Fruita Blanch has developed a versatile set of multi-sized labels to fit every jar. These labels have been designed to reveal as much of the jar product as possible as well as to emphasize its artisanal nature.”
In a perfect world, food packaging would get the hell out of the way and show off all the pretty, pretty food.
I walked past these bottles in a liquor store tonight and audibly gasped. So gorgeous, fresh and summery. I’ve never seen letterpress on a mass-produced label like this before, but the larger letters are definitely raised…could it be? Mmm.
Apparently they’re not that new, I’m just late to the party; Bryon used to bartend at a Minneapolis country club and says he saw them there. The vodka is made in Minnesota.
By Minneapolis-based design firm Olson. Hire me?
Packaging I designed for a fictional brand.
SIGH. I want to design pretty packages for things so badly. Please let me do it soon, Graphic Design department?
I’m a sucker for food and beverage packaging that shows off the product in a beautiful way, and these bottles are making me SO THIRSTY. How much more effective can you get?
“Through experimentation and innovation I have developed a form of packaging that is 100 percent biodegradable and recyclable. If the packaging is discarded it will have a positive effect on the environment due to the seed embedded biodegradable paper. The twine used to secure the product and label is natural cotton and 100 percent biodegradable.”
I’m so interested in packaging design, but the environmental issues always get me. I wish more companies would implement practices to limit their waste. I wish they were required to. I wish people cared more.
I love this, is what I guess I’m trying to say.
this reminds me of the image Young posted… about how simplifying logos and packaging makes such a huge difference. i love this look; i think it makes a big statement about the product too… seems classier than a lot of the cheap, wacky looking package design out there (…typically found in the grocery store).

Oh, I just love this. Packaging design should be about showcasing the product! Especially if the product is beautiful.
One company that has actually put this into practice is Archer Farms for Target. This is the only picture I could find of their spice bottles and it’s not very good, but you’ve probably seen them…they’re so pretty and interesting to look at, they stop me in my tracks every time I’m there. Pretty darn effective strategy if you ask me.
