“Drinking hot tea is a daily ritual for millions of people. In warm and cooler climates tea seems to bring a sense of relaxation and comfort. In Croatia, which is, by tradition (and due to our geographic placement), a coffee drinking country, there are not many chances to get a healthy coffee alternative. And this is Just our cup of tea- tea-bag integrated tea cup. It enables us to have a quick, spil-free drink on the run, without messing around with a tea-bag. It is easy to use, clean and reusable. Every cup can be used two times, then discarded into the paper bin and recy­cled to find its new life in another paper form.”

BLOK 4 is a creative team comprised of Katarina, Keti and their external associate Tihana. We cover different design areas – from graphic (visual identity, publications, packaging, illustrations) and interactive (web design and interactive interface) to product (interior, furnishing) and inclusive design.

“Why be like everybody else? This question is not only the tagline for Crazy Uncle but a total brand philosophy. With this notion in mind, TAXI came up with the name, visual language and packaging for this newly launched culinary cocktail. Inspired by ‘Dandyism’, the Crazy Uncle packaging features a packet of rimmer that also doubles as a pocket square. Each flavour has a different pattern and is a homage to all the crazy uncles out there.”

Look what I found while researching for a brief - Macaron packaging always seems to be gorgeous!

“A Christmas gift given to clients, suppliers and friends.

The ‘Warm red’ Pantone chip becomes a gift box containing a bottle of ‘warming’ red mulled wine. The message printed on the bottle reads “Add a touch of colour to your cheeks this season, with a glass (or two) of mulled wine. Warmer wishes from Designers Anonymous.”

I would definitely buy this as a gift, and the idea could be expanded to include other wines such as white or rose.

Milk Cartons for Adults Only

Designer, Jörn Beyer aka Jørn, based in Düsseldorf, Germany has revamped the packaging of major spirit brands, to see if people’s product decisions would be affected by replacing their signature glass bottles with Tetra Paks. The resulting series called ‘Ecohols’ displays the labels of Jack Daniels, Absolut Vodka and Jägermeister on ordinary beverage cartons. What remains of the brand, is it just about the name, its contents, or the total package?

I really wouldn’t buy any of these, unless it was just for the novelty. It makes me think the drink won’t taste the same if it’s in a milk carton.

I’m not too sure why there are animals on the front of these coffee beans(maybe I’m being thick… if so someone explain to me please) but I’d definitely buy this coffee instead of another brand, just so I could have a lion in my kitchen.
