1. Seamless shop
A friend of mine was just asking about CD packaging for her clients and not long after I saw these coasters in the brand new Seamless Shop. I think these velum envelopes would make create packaging for a disc! It may need a piece of card stock in there as well to aid the fragility though. And then a simple sticker to seal. Such a simple yet beautifully executed idea! Found via designworklife.
2. Tad Carpenter Snapple
Love this illustration concept for Snapple’s Half and Half teas! Tad Carpenter’s illustration work is always awesome—especially his monsters—but having each bottle feature a half of two different monsters is too cute! Found via Share Some Candy.
3. Custom Family Pillow
These pillows would make great memories of current or past homes for your family! Found via swissmiss.
4. Treasury Wine
What a great advertising campaign for wine! I rarely have wine but I sure don’t know all the wine pairings! Designed by Jason Perez, the ad for Treasury Wine Estates is placed in a grocery shopping cart, asking each user to input their groceries online and it will tell them what wine to get to pair with the food! Great idea! Found via designworklife.
5. Design*Sponge Newspaper
The Design*Sponge blog is a little too crafty for me but I still love reading it! It inspires me, but mostly challenges me, in the ways I know nothing of. But I know about graphic design! And when they published their first newspaper last summer, I love the design of it! Each layout incorporates the photos on a grand scale, which holds true to the blog. The photos always speak for themselves. However, the typography incorporated in these layouts is so modern. I love the slender columns of text and the unique placement of the page numbers in the upper right column. All the text flows right along with the photos themselves. Now if only I had a copy… next time! Found via For Print Only.
