I’ve shown you work from Stranger and Stranger before but I want to post them again because I find them such a fascinating company. How do they do it?!?!?! How have they become so good and specialized within one very specific field of packaging design? In tiny little Denmark it would not be possible to be a company that ONLY does wine and booze packaging because the market is so small. But it seams that everytime I go to the liquer store (I go there sometimes just to look at pretty booze bottles…NERD!) my eyes are drawn to a really nice bottle and I discover that it’s done by Stranger and Stranger.

London based Here Design is a small set-up but they do great diverse stuff. From Nigella Lawson cookbooks to Adidas instore decor. Chances are, if you’re anything like me, you will have flipped through their pasta book in a bookstore or you will have stopped in your track in a supermarket while travelling at the sight of the Hairy Bikers crisp bags.

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!

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!

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!
