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.
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!
Daniel Freytag, working closely with founders Kerry and Derek Campbell created a whisky brand for 8 Doors Distillery which feels premium but also accessible - harnessing the uniqueness of the distillery’s location and expressing this in every small detail. The design is inspired by the natural environment and climate - identity, colour palette, typography and textures all combine to create a sense of the rugged isolation found at the very edge of the Scottish mainland.
I feel like featuring a 5-year-old project by the incredible folks from Anagrama Studio, a design studio based in Mexico City, Mexico. The project I am featuring is the branding, packaging design work they have done for Helvetimart (For which they are now closed...) a specialty market in Lausanne, Switzerland offering a wide variety of regional food products. First of all, what really caught my eye is how the design is timeless even if it's was designed 5 years ago!
.Oddity Studio shared a branding and packaging design project for TAG Aviation. Basic personal hygiene becomes a luxury amenity on board private jet airlines: high quality products with a long life leather mask holder packaged in minimalistic red and white box along with silver metallic greeting cards. A perfect brand expression is scored with playful details of runway and taking off plane.
Kati Forner shared a super stylish branding and packaging design for Reach. The whole project is simply beautiful. The color palette, the typography and layout, it’s hard to point at any flaw on the presentation of the work. Truly inspiring.

In close collaboration with the design team at reMarkable, Norwegian packaging studio Goods has designed a range of packaging for reMarkable 2. The recently launched device is the world’s thinnest tablet — it's only 4.7mm thick, and aims to replace your notes and printed documents with a digital notebook that feels like paper.

Bracom Agency is a branding and creative agency based in the beautiful city of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. They have shared via their Behance, a beautiful packaging design project for Bracom. Obviously, when speaking about 'mooncake' they must be 'moon' involved. It shows appreciation towards how you see things and whatever you see them fit in your career, your family, and even your friends. I really dig the foreground color of the packaging design which is dark to enrich the actual centerpiece.
There’s something about juice packaging that really makes designers really excel at simplicity and pure gorgeous ideas. I’ve posted countless projects here on abdz. about this particular subject but the source seems to be unlimited. For this post I’d like to share the project that Guilherme Vissotto created for Pleno Natural Juice. As I mentioned before, it’s simple, elegant and just really beautiful.
I am a coffee person. I rarely drink tea, however I have to admit, tea has much nicer packaging design. Like this one suggested to us by Lung-Hao Chiang. He says that due to the COVID-19 epidemic, he hopes that the vision of the Moon Festival gift box this year can bring warmth, hope and vitality to consumers and give each other best wishes at this time of family and friends reunion.
Aleksandra Iakimchuk shared a beautiful branding and packaging design project for Sydney Juice Bar. I am not that fun of juices to be honest but with a design like this one that Aleksandra created I would be more than inspired to have a few of those a day, at least just to enjoy the simplicity of a clear and elegant typography. No splashes or cheesy images of flying fruits, just good old black text over white label.
Yura Park and Ching-Fa Lung shared a quite unique branding, packaging design and visual design project for Volume. Volume a portable cocktail experience. The name for this brand was inspired by alcohol by volume(ABV). Alcohol by volume is a standard measure of how much alcohol is contained in a given amount of an alcoholic beverage.
Xavier Esclusa Trias has created a poster series that is bringing a bit of a nostalgia moments to be honest. Pure throwback from the days where we didn't care about going to rent movies at the video store, where the packaging was just part of an item that you will eventually learn to appreciate. From what Xavier created, I just dig there aren't any 'special effects' like gradients, shadows, or whatnot. It's all graphical shapes and typography; there is something about having to work within these past constraints.
Today we want to talk about your wellbeing. You’ve heard me talk about breathing techniques in the past but today I want to focus on another trending topic known as your gut health and a new brand that just launched called FRISKA.
Times they are a-changin wrote Bob Dylan in the 60s. Every decade has its ups and downs, but the 2020’s started with a big low. If you’re anything like me right now, you’re experiencing heightened stress levels, less than quality sleep and an over-indulgence in things like caffeine and alcohol. While I’m less than proud to admit this fact I’m also happy to say I have been inspired! Inspired by all the beautiful wine and spirit labels that I’ve been enjoying thanks to Jessica Lasky Catering.
Modisana Hlomuka published a beautiful branding and packaging design project for SnackBytes, a South-African-based pet treat brand by Nutribyte. The range currently has two flavors, Chicken and Peanut butter named ChickByte and PeanutByte respectively.
Abrogratto 18 is a brand of premium, ready-to-drink bottled cocktails. As it is a small company, they have chosen to create collections of small batches of classic cocktails, the first one being Negroni. The visual identity of Abrogratto 18 is versatile and neutral so that it can adapt to each of the collections without losing the essence of the brand. Afterwards, the packaging was designed, which was inspired by the name of the brand and history of alcoholic drinks around the world.
I am starting to be attracted to showcasing work and projects that aren't related to 'user interface' and user experience. It's probably because I work into this field but having the opportunity to share whatever inspires us what makes me keep going with ABDZ. With this momentum, I would like to share the work of Studio Chapeaux and what they have done for Vizou's reading glasses collection in terms of graphic & packaging design.
Martin Naumann and Andrius Martinaitis have shared a colorful and abstract-feely packaging for Laroché Chocolate. They posted their full project on Behance, make sure to give it a look. Other than loving this visual direction to express a chocolate product but I do like that they shared a snapshot of the development.
