Alejandro Gavancho has shared this absolutely stunning packaging design for 'Amare The Label' which is swimwear brand. Designed by Alejandro who is a graphic designer (Diseñador Gráfico) based in Leeds, United Kingdom. I just like the work he has done, it's remarkable. Let's start with the colors, pure gradient galore happening here. Just to add a balance, I enjoy the color palette of the branding itself, it's clean, minimal, and add much more vulnerability to the beauty of the entire packaging set.
Servin Seudaliev, a 2D designer and a CG artist that specializes in illustrations from Lviv, Ukraine. He made a series of iconic cars from Hollywood movies, they are cartoonish and well made. I just like how the top of the car is kind on the higher size of things which is really eye pleasant to look at. It's stylish! It quite fun to see how the artist looks at things from another perspective, this series is amusing and definitely bring some smile.
Design by Simil shared this sublime packaging design for SAIREN, a clear spiced rum crafted by Ohara’s Rum at The Parrot Club in Sheffield, England. Taking visual inspiration from 'mythological tales', the packaging design is so vibrant and attractive. I mean it will surely 'attract' your attention on the shelves, guaranteed! Another detail that really caught my attention is the shape of the bottle which is pretty unusual for a rum (I am not a pro taster), that wood-material bottle crap just balances it all. Give it a look!

Focus is a set of abstract experimental bokeh effects shared by Chrisb Marquez. These phantasmal formations experiment with glowing chromatic blurring and focal aberrations. The simple play of depth of field gives these formations a minimal look and feel.
The future of art is based on the past but with much more accessible and innovative tools near hand to achieve what we aim but sometimes that innovation is hard to bring back the past. Stumbled across her night series, Ann-Sophie De Steur's artworks nostalgically thrust you in the face. She able to bring back this art deco feels, 30's, the Jets cartoon with a flare of Rocketeer, and everything in between. This night series is pleasant to look at and her take on the color of the night is just really well thought.

I feel like featuring a 5-year-old project by the incredible folks from Anagrama Studio, a design studio based in Mexico City, Mexico.

Another project where Designit shines on how they approach through research to learn more through field research and our co-creation workshops. First of all, what strikes me the most from this brand identity is the logo for the Menomadin Foundation.

Sean Ford is a graphic designer based in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom, he has shared with us a cool print experiments he has been doing with foils and textures via his Behance. I really dig those experiments and It's really cool to see 'graphic design' making a solid comeback. We are all about our interface designs, visual systems, and standards but let's not forget how it started for most of us. Even for us at abdz., I feel the blog has shifted towards that interest all over again.
