Just Pretty

This is just pretty.  There's not much to say after that.  The design is not revolutionary or anything, but a cleanly designed, well-functioning product is all you need.

Product: Renouve Anti-Aging Hand Sanitizing Lotion

For My Husband: Whisky Design

This amazing whisky packaging came up in one of my feeds, and I had to share.  This is from the design portfolio of Brad Surcey of Zeus Jones, and it's fantastic.  I love the clean lines, mid-century feel, and updated take on whisky packaging.

And check out the typeface!

I think Mike will like this as much as I do, which is a lot.

Be a Snob

Snob Duck soaps are handmade with the cleanest ingredients: extra virgin olive oil, greek herbs, fruits, honey and lots of love.  Marios Karystios was tasked with creating packaging that would reflect this pure pedigree.

Karystios says of his design:
Vasilis Douros decided to create a handmade soap made of the purest stuff. His admiration of animals, (especially ducks) as he is a vegetarian, led to the chosen symbol.

We used the classic innocent looking rubber duck by contraries. A nice bow tie, clean and fresh but still with this snobbish look.

I like that the packaging is clean, but not formulaic. The asymmetrical design and free form brushstrokes keep things interesting. The duck isn't twee, or caricatured. In fact, with his bow tie and rakish expression, he seems a little badass.  That's a welcome addition to bath time.
