Inspire, Awaken, Relax, & Slumber

Inspire, Awaken, Relax, and Slumber. The four different cannabis (Yes, you read correctly) nectars will allow you to focus or unwind, depending on what you need. John McNeil Studio designed AYA, a high-end cannabis option that is chemical and pesticide free.

“As the market for medical marijuana continues to grow and California prepares for the possible recreational legalisation of marijuana this November, the Sonoma Cannabis Company—together with its marketing partner, John McNeil Studio—launched a premium cannabis product, AYA, positioned in the top tier of cannabis brands.”

AYA features lovely, dreamy packaging, with a galaxy of stars in the sky and a coordinating vibrant colour for each. An animal rests on the front, the characteristics of which can indicate the purpose of the cannabis. It also creates a sense of feeling more in touch with nature and the earth. A background pattern keeps things lively, and all of the illustrations are done with meticulous detail—indicating the high quality of AYA.

Lost Inhibitions Wine

Church & State lets their wines speak for themselves, even if they’re a bit mouthy. Their vineyards demand to be heard, and in the cellar, the wine has free reign. The result is a collection of refreshingly honest expressions, boldly emblazoned across a series of 150+ labels…and counting. These bold and fresh design were created by Brand Ever.

BlackBay Brewery & CO

A new favourite designer of ours is Carlos de Toro. We fell in love with his 3D Experimental Type project and he is back with more beautiful design.

Introducing BlackBay Brewery & CO

BlackBay Brewery & CO is a new craft beer company based in Byron Bay (Australia), led by Liam Brooks and David O’neil. BlackBay’s aim is to export Australian beer (of course), but also Australian culture, values and spirit as a referent abroad, so their beers are based and inspired by the things they value the most: their land legacy, the hot Australian barley fields and the sea (they became friends thanks to surf before starting this project). Sweet Ale, Summer Ale and Pacific Ale are really limited edition beers: each bottle is a little treasure that will be enjoyed by customers so the design makes each bottle literally unique and numbered in the front. Risography printed.

Check out the project below and see more of Carlos’ work here

Rawganique – Raw, organic, unique packaging

Peltan-Brosz Roland is a designer from Hungary who was commissioned to design an identity, as well as packaging for Rawganique. Rawganique describe themselves as “Pure clothes. Pure bed. Pure bath. Pure footwear. Made in-house for folks who would settle for nothing less than true purity and environmental sustainability.”

The challenge for Peltan was designing a look that captured the essence of Rawganique. Peltan explains his design thinking and process: “We thought of using something personal like handwriting. In handwriting we saw the presence of the personal touch to each product, it gives the impression of a custom made material, it breaks away from commerce and conventional and it is modern. So we devised a custom typeface for Rawganique, that due to modern printing technique we could create more versions of written words on labels.”

Pack a Smile

This really puts a smile on my dial, and it’s all thanks to designer Hani Douaji.  The new packaging of  Trident Xtra Care chewing gum shows just how much fun package design can really be. Nothing is more exciting than a concept that translates so effortlessly into a design that everybody can relate to, you just can’t help but smile! Wait, is there something stuck in my teeth?
