Single Serving

It has always been a question of mine why pasta only comes in one size - lots.  Why aren't packages sized for individual , 2 person, and family portions? Apparently my question is shared with UK design student Neal Fletcher who designed an innovative and stylish multi but individualized pasta serving package.  My next question Neal, is what about the sauce? I always end up tossing out 1/2 jars of sauce when I clean out the fridge.  Shouldn't we have sauce sized for individuals, 2 servings and then the traditional size for families? Read More

Creative Labeling - Inspiring Package Design

{ Tuesday, September 21, 2010 }

This package design by Australian branding firm Voice speaks volumes to us.  I love that they simply chose white as the main color, and let the color of the contents shine through.  It is elegant, soft, and delicate.  I wonder if the package design echos the taste of the wine?

Cord Heaven

{ Tuesday, August 10, 2010 }

One of my major technology annoyances is messy cords.  Leave it to the Japanese to pay attention to this often overlooked necessity and design them deliciously.

Clip on mustache's by Pavel Sidorenko.  The shapes are playful and the package design is very simple but effective. Maybe I can be Charlie Chaplin for halloween.

AMPLIFY Chandelier

{ Thursday, May 27, 2010 }

1 crystal + 1 low energy LED light + a faceted paper shade = AMPLIFY. These amazing lanterns come in 6 different shapes and are designed to be grouped together to create a dramatic effect.  In collaboration with Swarvoski, the industrial design/branding powerhouse  fuseproject debued them at the most recent Salone del Mobile.
