Graphic Humor


Can’t stop talking about this super funny packaging design;-). It made me think of a game we used to play when we were students: we all had to stuff our mouths with biscuits and then everybody needed to say a complicated word, which was impossible of course;-).

Amazingly this design was done by a group of students at Moscow’s British Higher School of Art and Design: Adeliya Koldarova, Oksana Paley, Daria Sapozhnikova and Zaira Panaeva (maybe inspired by that same game?). How talented they are! What I specifically like about this packaging is that you don’t open Bla-Bla Cookies from the top, but rather by tearing the label away. This opens the mouth of the characters to reveal ‘gobs full of food’. Love it! (thanks, Peg)


Packaging: Young Architects Box

Unit bricks

Remember I wrote last summer about a nice ‘playdate’ with some architects here? After that great night, I worked with Unit Bricks on the branding and packaging of their new products ‘Mini-Unit Bricks-Builder’ and ‘Mini-Unit Bricks-Architect’; sets of bricks/blocks that can help kids learn more about maths, but also about the history of cities an de evolutionary process of building.

Last week the boxes were finally printed and packed with blocks in Thailand! Hooray;-)! I especially like the timeline on the sides of the box, with the best architecture history has to offer… in bricks! Find out more about Hong Kong based Unit Bricks here.
