France&Co Wine packaging

 

With an ironic and iconic look: the box became a guillotine and the colours of the French flag served to reinforce the identity of the wine. Both labels feature parts of paintings that have become well known for portraying the French Revolution (from Eugène Delacroix and Jacques-Louis David).

 

These iconic French wine packaging designed were created by Spanish design agency Grantiopo. via packagingoftheworld

US designer Janina Kao recently redesigned the identity and packaging for the French dessert shop, Laduée. Before the redesign the shop had a feminine and floral design impression and didn’t have a deli. The new identity focuses on typical classic French style design elements such as the rooster, the colors red blue and white and the background ornamentation. The deli packaging was printed on mustard colored paper that is warm and soft, unlike other everyday food wrapping.

Paris Travel Posters

Paris Travel Posters created by Evan and Nichole Robertson Paris Travel Posters created by Evan and Nichole RobertsonParis Travel Posters created by Evan and Nichole RobertsonParis Travel Posters created by Evan and Nichole RobertsonParis Travel Posters created by Evan and Nichole Robertson

Designers Evan and Nichole Robertson created four Paris travel poster illustrations of the iconic French city. Each poster is beautifully designed and comes with a small twist which make them unique and memorable. The couple designed the posters so that the focus lies on the experiences one has in Paris whilst being at the perfect location. Usually travel posters concentrate on the iconic landmarks of the city or country, but the couple turned everything upside down and set the famous landmarks into the backdrop (e.g. The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Arc de Triomphe). Instead of ‘come see’ it’s all about ‘Come do’.

If you fancy one of these posters you can purchase them for $24 each on Etsy.

Traditional French waffle wafers

Gaufrettes Amusantes french wafflesGaufrettes Amusantes french waffles

Gaufrettes Amusantes are traditional French waffle wafers that have adapted a humorous twist on their cookies. Written in either standard French or in Northern France’s Picard dialect each cookie reflects a witty, working class community. Everyday sayings such as “Allo Cherie” (hello darling) and “Cha n’vaut pas un pet d’lapin” (it’s not worth a rabbit fart) add a touch of charm to morning tea or dessert.

The recipe developed by Comptoir des Flandres dates back to 1894 and comes in vanilla, chocolate, chicory, hazelnut and raspberry varieties. via coolhunter

Norwegian design agency DesignersJourney have become quite know for their outstanding wine packaging over the years. The “Promenade” wine box is a fresh breath to wine packaging design. The nice little illustrations of what they call ‘French cliches’ give you the feeling of ‘a walk through France‘. In combination with the genuine handwritten and feminine text this wine box stands out from the shelf leaving its conservative competitors behind.

French Revolution – Eugène Delacroix

Posted by rod - 11.01.2011


Liberty Leading the People (French: La Liberté guidant le peuple) is a painting by Eugène Delacroix commemorating the July Revolution of 1830, which toppled Charles X. A woman personifying Liberty leads the people forward over the bodies of the fallen, holding the tricolore flag of the French Revolution in one hand and brandishing a bayonetted musket with the other. This is perhaps Delacroix’s best-known painting, having carved its own niche in popular culture. via wikipedia
