On such a friday, isn’t it time for another booze round up? I’ve been trawling the interweb to give you the very best in my opinion. I did one of these gin round ups before, so if you’re sitting there thinking “Hang on, why didn’t the silly cow put in Hendrick’s?” then it’s because I already did! Now go ahead an pour yourself a GT…well, in a few hours that is, depending on your timezone and your care for political correctness. Which one would you rather look cool pouring from?

Have a great weekend!

Weekend hangovers?

Monday morning (well…9.40 AM), start of a new week. Had a few well deserved cocktails on friday and stayed in pretty much all weekend and watched The Americans. I’m HOOKED! So here’s an homage to the show (although these aren’t Russian at all)…or to you if you’ve had a boozer weekend ;-)

Don’t kill me if you can’t get every single one of these at your local, and if you’re the designer of any of these please put your name in the comments :-) You did GREAT!

Asian “home” sickness

It feels like autumn is coming to Copenhagen and I’m getting a little travel sick, not as in I need to barf, but as in I could do with a trip abroad. I’m missing walking into one of the Japanese supermarkets and foodcourts in my old “hometown” Hong Kong, and of course actually going to Tokyo is not that bad either ;-) But for now I’ve done a little ode to Asian (mostly Japanese) packaging. Best in the world if you ask me. I think I’ll close my eyes, sip on a glass of umeshu and pretend I’m in a little izakaya tonight :-) Have a great weekend!

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.
