Nice Package!

BOTANICAL BAKERY BY DBD INTERNATIONAL

This cheeky packaging for Botanical Bakery uses clever illustration to suggest tempting and unusually flavored cookies. If I saw them in the grocer’s, I would have to grab one or two.

Just in Time for BBQ Season

DRUNKEN TAGS BY FAROUCHE

Love these clever drink tags by Farouche. Use them to id your party glass or tie them to your tipsy friend as a reminder of a way too fun evening.

Cheers all, have a great holiday!

It isn’t Easy, but it’s not Difficult Either

“Work hard. Keep at it. Live simply and quietly. Remain humble. Stay positive. Create your own luck. Be nice. Be polite.”

HUGH MacLEOD, from Ignore Everybody and 39 Other Keys to Creativity

As a long time fan of Gaping Void, you’d think I’d have read it sooner, but I just finished Hugh’s book. A must for anyone who creates anything, and since that applies to almost everyone, a must for all!

TYPOGRAPHY BY KATIE DAISY

Natural Light

BLOOM MGX LAMP BY PATRICK JOUIN

With nature as his inspiration, Patrick Jouin designed this lovely lamp which “blossoms” to adjust the light level. The shade is three dimensionally printed, including the hinges that allow it to transform from demure bud to glorious bloom.
