Boontheshop Branding

Boontheshop Branding

Simple and elegant branding work is always inspiring, at least for me. The Boontheshop project by NR2154NYC is an amazing example. Boontheshop is Seoul’s leading luxury concept store and of course the branding work reflects that. It's pretty much black and white and minimalistic. I know this type of project doesn't work for a broader audience but boy it looks cool, at least just to see the attention to details, from the packaging to the semi-serif typeface, everything seems very well-crafted. NR2154 NYC is a design team from New York especialized in fashion, typography and editorial design. For more information about the work check out their Behance profile. Branding

Bó Burger and Fries Branding

Bó Burger and Fries Branding

Working on a brand identity is always a good challenge, it's not for nothing that most of us has multiple different practices to understand more the client and ultimately be on the same page. Let's take a look at the visual identity of Bó - Burger and Fries, a culinary place located in Kielce, Poland. Behind this mixed branding, the folks from Hopa Studio took on this project in branding, interior design and packaging as well. I kind of enjoyed the mixture of mediums into something quite different from what we usually see, hope you'll like it. Bó, for us, is an example of a good cooperation of a client and invited people, basing on trust, passion and specialization.Joanna Walczykowska has been responsible for the illustrations. Kamil Borowski, specializing in lettering, transformed the golden paint into calligraphic works of art. The corporate identity assumes two layers – the first associated with slow food, urban life and culture. The second – golden – refers to the style of the New York subway, graffiti and hip-hop. Elegant, glamorous typography combined with the style of letters and graphic forms, close to the style of the streets. About Hopa Studio Hopa Studio is an agency based in Warsaw, Poland. They focus their work into creating solutions not only for good aesthetic in different fields of design. We should look forward to see more from them. More information: http://www.hopastudio.com/en.

Day & Night Branding

Day & Night Branding

There's a thing I will always do appreciate about  branding is that creating/making a identity takes a lot more process than we always think. When you think of this, you gotta work on the layout, fonts, colours and above all the concept. Once you have that knotted into place, you gotta think about so many packaging items to deal with for which it even becomes more interesting and conceptual work. We would love to share the work from Backbone Branding and branding/packaging for Day & Night Milk concept project. The idea that begins to act as an independent project worth to be produced and implemented into life. The copyright of this concept belongs to Backbone Branding “ArtStep” LLC and is available for obtainment. Day & Night is a concept project that has a bifacial nature that is injected in each of its design elements. The logo expresses the earth’s rotation with its shape symbolizing the change from day to night. The branding concept expresses the restaurant type that serves its dining during the day and the bar starts to act in the night. This duality of the restaurant living is clearly expressed in the pictured animals, illustrated in two different polarities.     About Backbone Backbone is a branding studio currently based in Armenia. Having the word: "Branding" in their company name gives them the essence of focusing their work in branding, illustration and packaging.

SAMURAI Packaging

SAMURAI Packaging

I mostly do think a lot about our waste and how we should recycle things that we use every day. Not to a level of being an extreme cheap stake but to be aware of common good practices for a better future. This is why I am totally digging this package design by Fanny Löfvall, Nanna Basekay and Oliver Sjöqvist. They made the package design with the design thinking of being more eco-responsible, playful and practical at the same time. Small details that truly make the difference for this project. We wanted to avoid using a bag as a solution and therefore created a design where you can stack and attach packagings on top of each other.     The packaging to chopsticks are used as handles. In the middle of the pack you can see a perforation that makes it very easy to open up and take out the chopsticks. It is a unique take away box that gives the customer a more personal and premium experience. Credits Fanny Löfvall Nanna Basekay Oliver Sjöqvist

Roasting Masters Branding + Packaging

Roasting Masters Branding + Packaging

Having traveled across the World (specifically in Asia) in the last few months, I can admit that the design culture is bizarrely modified in some ways. What's happening from the Eastern part of the World is getting inspired by their Western party as well. And vice-versa. We are featuring the branding + packaging of the Roasting Masters company, a 10-year-old company that has been running into the coffee industry. They had their whole brand revamped by Content For Context, let's take a closer look. Considering the situation that Roasting Masters has been successfully run for 10 years in coffee industry in Korea and their name was also relevant for bean to bar business, we decided to keep their name and revitalize the brand identity instead of creating new one. When revitalizing brand identity, we tried to keep their visual essence in a sophisticated and modern way. We created a solid logo and put a cacao in which used to be a coffee bean. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); For the chocolate packaging, we researched visual heritage from Latin America, where all beans for Roasting Masters are from. We made vivid color palettes and drew patterns inspired by Latin culture. We also developed illustrations introducing 'bean to bar' for those who are not familiar with it. About Content From Context Content From Context is a multi-disciplinary design studio based in Seoul, Korea that focuses their work into branding and packaging. Their motto is all about understanding the content and transcend it into the context at creating the right brand experiences. For more information: http://www.contentformcontext.com

NO WIFI - SURVIVAL KIT

NO WIFI - SURVIVAL KIT

I haven't worked on a branding project in quite a long time as I've been keeping my focus on UI/UX and prototyping for the past few years. That doesn't mean that my thirst for branding has ceased. I love seeing projects posted on Behance and the whole development, especially those with beautiful presentation, like the project I am featuring today. NO WIFI - SURVIVAL KIT is a branding and packaging work that is certainly an inspiration to me. NO WIFI - SURVIVAL KIT was created by Nora Kaszanyi, a designer from Budapest, Hungary. There's not much of an explanation about it, but it seems to be a school project. The thing is, it doesn't really matter if you were looking for a fresh visual reference.

Nike Football Untouchable Packaging

Nike Football Untouchable Packaging

Some of us might think that Branding is going to the same direction as Print where the Digital World is taking over things. I'd liked to think to the contrary where I feel creative projects can be achieved just like this beautiful project from Hovercraft. Nike Football asked us to create a limited package for their most technically advanced cleat, the Vapor Untouchable. The package was sent to Texas’ top sixteen high school teams as an invitation to an exclusive event. The package is secured with a belly band, and the two angular flaps are secured together with hidden magnets. An acrylic panel with a screen printed invitation to the event covers the metallic silver cleats. The interior of the box is reflective silver foil, with an info card inset into the bottom of the box. We achieved ultimate shine with this one.

Rawganique Package Design

Rawganique Package Design

Handmade design is a super sweet style. It gives products that rustic feel and adds a notion of humanity to it... add a slogan like "made by humans to humans" and you're set to go. Peltan-Brosz, a design agency from Budapest came up with package design for Rawganique, a handcrafted products manufacturer based on Canada. Check it out! We were commissioned to create their new visual identity. We made a system that is strict with its logo and font. But like nature itself from where the firm has its most inspiration the identity had to be more opened and closer. That is why in order that the identity is one in every way and reflects the new lifestyle that the firm proclaims we thought of using something personal like handwriting." In handwriting we saw the presence of the personal touch to each product, it gives the impression of a custom made material, it breaks away from commerce and conventional and it is modern. So we devised a custom typeface for Rawganique, that due to modern printing technique we could create more versions of written words on labels. In this way almost all labels differ form one another, because every label set on the offset printing sheet is different from one another in terms of typeface and pattern crop to."

Patron Gift Packaging Design

Patron Gift Packaging Design

Check out this amazing gift packaging design from Patron filled with handcrafted ingredients and some extremely beautiful design. Every little detail was well put together and the results is great, enjoy! Patron is produced with unparalleled attention to detail. It is made from the highest-quality, finest Weber Blue agave, grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. The master distiller continues to follow a recipe that is a century old. Every bottle is hand made and unique, and over the entire process, 60 hands touch each bottle. The direct mail piece created for Patron comprised of two boxes, one for Patron XO Dark Cocoa bottle and one for Patron Silver. Using the finest ingredients, we created parallel products to be enjoyed with the Patron – raw, organic chocolate and handmade cocktails. We included the raw ingredients to make the chocolate and cocktails to highlight to the user the hand made process which is involved in every aspect of the making of Patron. The recipients were therefore given the opportunity to enjoy the experience of making chocolate from scratch as well as the interesting process of mixing fine ingredients to create cocktails. Here, the craftsmanship of Patron, the craftsmanship of Honest Chocolate – our collaborative brand – and the craftsmanship of cocktail mixology was brought together to signify an attention to detail that all too often, is lost to a busy, fast, instant world. In making these packs we used only hand crafted manufacturing- the boxes were made by hand, the printed material was letterpressed, the chocolate trays were crafted from a single sheet of tin and even the metal cocktail stir sticks were hand made XO Dark Cocoa The Blue Weber Agave, the best agave plant in Mexico, is the main ingredient used in Patron XO Café Dark and Honest Chocolate. Creating a link between the two, we created an Honest Chocolate-making kit in the box. The pack included the finest ingredients (raw cocoa, cocoa butter, agave) – as well as a molding tray, instructions, and a beautifully written and designed booklet about both the ingredients used in making Patron tequila, and the fine ingredients used to make raw chocolate. Patron Silver The Master Distiller of Patron, Francisco Alkaraz, has complete creative control over the flavour and experience of Patron tequila. Taking this as a cue in the consumer experience, as well as the fact that Patron Silver is popularly used as a mixer, we created an opportunity for the recipients of the box to experiment with flavours by providing exotic ingredients, obscure but interesting cocktail recipes and the tools to make them with, thus likening the cocktail experiment to the experience of a master distiller. The ingredients and instructions were letter-pressed, embossed and printed on beautifully hand-made paper.

Package Design: Leica Limited Edition Fedrigoni.

Package Design: Leica Limited Edition Fedrigoni

A piece of tailor made paper merges an extraordinary packaging concept and an exceptional product into one. Sold in Fedrigoni showrooms only, the limited Edition of Leica Cameras is wrapped so intimately by fine paper, the “unboxing” reminds of a paper sample book and turns into a Fedrigoni brand experience. Finally, the paper also replaces the cameras traditional leather banderole and becomes an integral part of it and not just its packaging.

Beautiful Branding and Packaging Design

Beautiful Branding and Packaging Design

Today I want to share this beautiful branding and packaging of a Whiskey brand from Germany. Designer Chad Michael from New York took this project to a whole other level, take a look at this beauty. For more from Chad Michael visit workbychadmichael.com and behance.net/ChadMichael. Migrant {Malt "Scotch" Whiskey} is a distilled spirit from Germany. Challenge In early 2013, I was contacted by the Trautwein Distillery Company to help them develop their new brand "Migrant". They're a German based company who wanted to develop a brand on their late grandfather, Ken Trautwein, 1930's migration travels. The whiskey is uniquely made by using scottish blends from their next door neighbor in Speyside which are then aged in American Oak all the while being distilled in Germany. Truly a cross-cultural experience. Solution The solution was to use visual cues from his actual passport, passage, and the rawness that period reflected. Being minimal, rough, and building up the "craft" cues helped evoke the character of the story.
