Do you still remember the “World’s best coffees” gift set descend by Artelmov Artel? Paradise. gourmet club has this time commissioned Artelmov Artel to create the exotic coffee collection packaging design.

“The task was to create a package design for the series of exotic coffees. This product is significantly more expensive than traditional ones and poorly known by an audience. Packaging has to demonstrate exclusivity and premium value of the product.

Each type of coffee from this collection is produced only in certain areas and has distinct unique taste. Mystical characters of Tiki (Hawaii), Barong (Indonesia), La Tolita Culture (Ecuador), Taino (Jamaica), Mahakala (Nepal), Furisiya (Yemen) inspired us to create vivid images, closely related to the distinctive cultures of the countries-suppliers of coffee.

Combination of graphics, shape of the package (tube) and technological solution (embossing, graphic paper) creates the image of a premium product. The gift box of the collection is made of wood (linden).”

Taj Vivanta illustration set

Posted by rod - 29.09.2014

Mumbai based illustrator Lokesh karekar had the honour to create a set of eight illustrations for the Taj Vivanta – Luxury hotels.

These works were orchestrated to cover all the activities in and around various Taj Vivanta Properties in one strong symbolic element. Each illustration represents a particular property and depicts indian culture in a simple and contemporary way.

Each illustration piece is created in a unique style which reflects the essence of the location of the hotel. For example, the Jodhpur ‘Vintage Car – illustration’ was influenced by mirror work from Rajasthan. ‘Diya’ visual was influenced from the installation of 1000 lights in the Kumarakom hotel.

‘Banana Leaf’ of Coimbtore was influenced by the south indian Rangoli style.

The task was to visualize each activity in a minimalistic, simplistic manner and creating a balanced composition of elements. The detailing of the elements makes the series engaging and interesting to look at.

If you like Lokesh work check out this excellent ChaiTime tea label illustrations.

Duke of Delhi packaging design

Duke of Delhi packaging design5 Duke of Delhi packaging design

London based design agency Bright Green Brands created this lovely packaging design and visual identity for the Duke of Delhi, mixing the rich culture of India with a hint of Britishness. The illustrations where created by Vanessa Wright

Barney Bryant has the following to say about the process:

“While pondering on the new identity I wondered who the Duke of Delhi might be: Was he an Englishman in India, or an Indian in England? And how would he travel? I decided that a horse-drawn royal carriage would be suitable in Britain or, if in India, then by royal elephant. Seeing my sketches in front of me, it just suddenly seemed the most obvious thing to do – put the two together, mixing the eccentricities of both cultures in one simple logo.”

Having had success with the biscuit packaging, Bright Green Brands where asked to create a new product – Delhi Mix – a Bombay mix with a quirky British twist, packaged in ‘tif in-style tins.

Viet Ha Beer packaging design

VietHa Beer packaging design Viet Ha Beer packaging design

Whilst working at Richard Moore Associates, Linh Lee had the chance to work on the brand identity and packaging design of Viet Ha beer, which is based in Vietnam.

The new design not only had to be modernised, but also had to transmit both a friendly and authentic feeling to its target audience. The beer’s symbol originates from the Don Son bronze drum and features the Lacviet bird. By redesigning the bird and adding the two barley strands it communicated a more sophisticated beer language. Parts of the Don Son bronze drum was also used to create patterns which were placed around the beer can. The word mark kept its red colour and it received a embossed look. A custom slab type was designed and replaced the previous condensed font. One element which I think is a shame that was lost are the diacritical marks over the “e” and “a”. From a visual point of view it would have been more authentic Vietnamese if they would have included them. Having said that, I’m no expert in Vietnamese language.

 

What do you think of the redesign?
