Cool, no? going to make some mock ups soon. Here's some cool packaging, all of which has something I want to implement.
This is by Sara Strand, They're all full colour and I imagine Litho-printed. I chose it for two reasons,
1. I like it when you print on card and earthy coloured paper stocks with a real grain to them.
2. The use of different colours to represent things seems like it could be very appropriate to my research. Overall the graphics are a bit cutesie for me, but still, nicely printed and again, different colours is something worth exploring.
I chose this Chew'd gum packaging design because I like the very illustratibe style, and illustration is something that I want to keep at the core of my practice. Also it colour codes like the one previously, which again seemed appropriate. Also it uses CMYK to do it, I'm a big fan of those core colours and how they work together.
seems to have a level of interactivity that goes above just opening a box etc. The one above has a two-way slide mechanism that I thought worked quite effectively. I also like the way the colours work together.
I thought that this was so cool, even though I hate smoking, though I have given it to Craig Laing for his Smoking is good project. I just love the sliding mechanism, I thought it was really
clever, and really thought about the proccess of getting a cigerette out of the packet.
Again, thought this one for the Baftas was just a really nicely packaged thing. I think the word BAFTA is embossed and maybe spot varnished? i don't know, I'll ask about that.
This design by Chris Chapman is a lovely and quirky way to package meet. I like how it uses the same format and varies the graphics to suit the object it contains, it's something to consider for packaging Obama in different ways. Again, I'd say this was Litho and it's full colour because it has photographic shots of meat. There we are.
