ACDSleeve x Big Scary Monsters

Categories Brand Identity, Graphic Design, PackagingPosted on

Tom Leggett started ACDSleeve out of necessity. After setting up a blog as a place to put all of his work, a pop up cd case concept was seen by the manager of one of his favourite bands Big Scary Monsters who agreed to help set up ACDSleeve.

The case is litho printed, matte laminated and then die cut/creased and hand assembled. All cases are made to order for a limited time.

Vintage Twitter

Categories Advertising, Brand Identity, Graphic Design, PackagingPosted on

With more than 100 million users worldwide, Twitter has over the recent years not only become a phenomenon, but a widely accepted tool to send short message to each other. Just like when we text each other on the phone, but visible to anyone. Amidst all this, Post-It celebrates 30 years in the business. What initially was considered a failed adhesive turned into maybe the most famous little piece of paper in history. Post-It became the standard for small, short messages and was used both between people and in public spaces, for anyone to see. Vintage Twitter is a loving homage to Twitter, with a reminder that the short message is not a new invention. The box, consisting of 500 Post-It notes (or vintage tweets) and a small pencil, was handed out at Disruptive Code, a conference for web developers in Stockholm, during autumn 2010.

Emil Kozak

Categories Brand Identity, Graphic Design, PackagingPosted on

Emil Kozak is from a small town in Denmark, and was inspired to take on graphic design as a result of his life long passion for skateboarding. He began at an early age to develop his skills, inspired by skateboard-art and the result today is a unique artist with brilliant ideas. The style is fresh and positive, but often with a message that digs deeper. He is a master of composition and has an eye for detail, that is not seen very often. Typographic, clean lines and few colors is often how Emil Kozak`s artwork is described.

Nathaniel Cooper – Glacé Ice Cream

Categories Brand Identity, Graphic Design, PackagingPosted on

“Kansas City-based Glace (say it this way, “Gla-say”) Artisan Ice Cream is a more grown-up sweet treat expression, rich in texture and inventive flavors like Venezuelan dark chocolate, fleur de sel caramel and pineapple-cilantro sorbet. The corresponding brand expression is clean, sophisticated and a nod to the owner’s love of modern minimalism. At the same time, copy and color palette make it feel fun and approachable. The logo also incorporates a sly tie to ice cream with circles that look like melting “drips” hitting the floor, while tailored graphic elements make the identity feel fashionable and unexpected in the category.”
