A bit of Hong Kong reminiscing today. I’m kinda already missing Hong Kong and I wanna go back ASAP so I’m gonna feature Point Blank Design who has done some amazing work for Chinese food industry clients. I’m just so in love with their work for Mooncake and Tai Ji. I want those Mooncake posters on my walls!

Today I want to show you a few projects by Hong Kong designer Tommy Li. He works in both Hong Kong and Japan and I think that’s quite visible in his style. The best of two worlds. Is so in love with the tableware for The Vietnam Woods!

I forgot to tell you yesterday that I am actually coming to you from Hong Kong these days. I houseswapped over the summer and it’s GREAT! I get to be in one of my fave cities and kinda have my own home without any expenses. Highly recommend it!

So I should post some Hong Kong stuff. First up is this beautiful packaging for soy milk. ALMOST makes me wanna drink it, but I don’t like soy milk, so I’ll just enjoy the look of it.

Little update to this post, cause I just figured out that the packaging was done by Hong Kong studio CODESIGN who also did a brilliant poster for HKDA. So just wanna show you that one too :-)



Olive oil

Hellooooo!!! Did you think I had died, did you!?!?!?!? No no, still here, just lots of stuff going on and have been super ill, had toncillitis after I went to Roskilde Festival. Yes yes, you will think I had been yelling and screaming, downing alcohol but actually I did no such thing. Well first part of it anyway! But it got so bad that I actually lost my voice entirely, seriously, NO SOUND! And while I know I don’t ACTUALLY need my voice to blog, I just lost will to do anything else than catch up on shitty American romantic comedies on my laptop in bed. Yeah I’m one of those girls!

But I’ll make it up to you cause I’ve made this stunning rounp up of olive oils. Olive oil seam to be the new item to pimp for packaging designers. We saw it a while back with beer and wine. If you do your own search you will find ones that I did not include because I think they’re just too much. It’s olive oil for christ sake. Not expensive perfume.

Look at this fantastically luxurious range of perfume from Humiecki & Graef. They’re really expensive but I think they’re so pretty and elegant with a hint of a time gone by.

OK you guys, it’s friday and the sun is out. It’s been a busy week and I think I might go out and have a few tonight. Of course I will drink in style though and I wouldn’t mind being seen with one of these lovely bottles in hand. I love this kind of American type style. Yum! Have a great weekend!

I do love visiting supermarkets in other countries because it’s such a treat to see nice packaging. I really don’t care if it’s cleaning supplies or fancy coffee, if it’s well done it’s just great! Have a look at Yael Miller’s work. She does really nice stuff in a wide variety of brands. I love that it spans from kiddy marshmellows to high end chocolate. That’s a versatile designer for ya!

Look at these yummy packaging designs for So…Soap! done by Hong Kong Studio CoDesign (Hong Kong I miss you!!). I love the minimalist clean style for a product like soap, for once it makes sense and is not just a trendy choice. I think the website also works quite well with contrastful type and big images.

Supply

I’ve had these two wonderful projects in folders on my desktop for a while and only just realised that they were done by the same studio, New Zealand based Supply. I think it’s really interesting to see two such different solutions for the “same” product from the same studio, that definitely shows visual versatility. Is there such a thing as a cider packaging expert, then these guys are it I guess! ;-)

…and for the beer drinkers I recommend Cervecería Sagrada designed by José Guízar. A shame I don’t drink beer, there are so many cool bottles!
