Yanko Design Top 50 – Best of 2013

If we reflect upon the trends predicted for 2013, then some of the prophecies have come true. For example, Contextual Design is no longer a buzzword and neither is it just restricted to user application. With research tools at their easy disposal, a consumer is no longer taken in by marketing ploys. Authenticity in the design, value, emotional context and above all simplicity; designs that reflect these core ethics have made their place in the free market.

Butterfly Tea

Butterfly Tea

This is the day and age of packaging! Quality products do sell well, but to give them that creative edge, they need to be packaged well. For example a great tasting tea will always be bought, but if it’s sold as cleverly packaged as this butterfly tea bag, then you give it that creative edge to be bought by the curious minds and impulse shoppers.

Water On The Go

Water On The Go

Bobble and their fraternity have brought in a new kind of water consumption consciousness. A new perspective in this line is the Vitamin Water – Water Purifier System. It basically combines the system of dispensing Vitamin Water along with tumbler sterilization. So all you need to do is place the bottle in its place and let the appliance do its work.

I’m Not A Hanger!

I’m Not A Hanger!

For once I am in total agreement with a designer’s explanation so I’m quoting word-for-word! “In general, we like to hang things on a chair. However, the back of chair is not a place to hang clothes. Angry Chair expresses such feeling toward men’s behavior by giving up the role of clothes hanger.”
