Hudson/Nichols – Four Corner Store Packaging

Hudson/Nichols designed this beautiful packaging for the limited re-release of the iconic Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim Camera for Four Corner Store, a shop that specializes in toy cameras. 75 units were created for the limited edition.

HUB Collective – Valentine’s Day Cards

Here are some candy colored Valentine’s for you. HUB Collective sent these to their clients – fun! The invitations were inspired by Japanese valentines, and the grade school tradition of passing out valentines to classmates.

Inconceiveable! Alamo Drafthouse Bottle of Wits

Inconceivable! The Alamo Drafthouse presents the Bottle of Wits, a wine tribute to the famous scene in which The Dread Pirate Roberts defeats Vizzini in a battle of wits with the poisoned wine. They’re not quite available yet, but look often because it will surely go quickly.

El Mil del Poaig Olive Oil

El Poaig has some beautifully packaged olive oil. The bottle designs for their El Mil del Poaig and El Verd del Poaig oils were created by the Spanish studio Culdesac. El Mil del Poaig features an artisanal wooden crate and a white porcelain bottle, while El Verd del Poaig is packaged in layers of cardboard.

El Mil del Poaig comes from 437 millenarian olive trees located in El Maestrat on the eastern coast of Spain. It is described by the makers as having “notes of freshly-cut grass, citrus, orange blossom and almonds.” I usually get my olive oil from Trader Joe’s, so I’d be curious to know what fancy olive oil actually tastes like.

Kings County Distillery Labels

Kings County Distillery is a microdistillery – which is apparently becoming the new ‘thing’, replacing microbrewing and the like. Harder times call for harder DIY alcohol I guess. I like their simple labels, staying true to their home-made roots.

Shoe Model No.1 by Society 27

Lovely packaging for this shoe (Model No.1) by Society 27, a collaborative design group. A two-piece plywood box reveals the shoe behind and provides a functional graphic element to the package.
