Four Flavored Butter Spoon

Four Flavored Butter Spoon

Butter! Better! And in four yummy flavors! The idea here is to package butter in a very convenient single-serve way. Since single serves are usually consumed during travel or picnics, this package includes a wooden spoon lid. The solid spoon is used to spread the butter and does away the need to carry additional cutlery. The idea seems neat and can be extended to yogurts and ice creams too. Although a safe plastic cover like seen in this package, is recommended.

Supernatural Coke!

Supernatural Coke!

I’m not getting you high on any abusive substance here, but simply telling you about a new spiritual form of the ever-famous Coca Cola. Lovingly called the Mystic, this new package boasts of “sexy lines”, “sculpted body”, and “loving silhouette”. It’s not an attempt to get Eco Friendly, but just an exercise to bring happiness in 3 dimensions!

Snip-Dip-Sip Coffee

Snip-Dip-Sip Coffee

Open It! is quite a clever package design and I hope someone like the exemplified Nescafe takes cue. The idea is for cold coffee mix but I think we can use it for hot cappuccino mixes as well. You simply open up the top end of the coffee mixture pouch, pour the contents into water and use the same pouch as a straw for stirring & sipping the drink! Simple and totally worth commercializing!

The O+ Music Campaign

The O+ Music Campaign

From what I’ve learnt, marketing is all about how make a product get noticed and grab media attention in the shortest possible span of time. An effective campaign can either be subtle, the get-under-your-skin kinds or be totally in-your-face. In the music industry it’s the latter route that finds much success, which is why flamboyance and distinctiveness is a part of the game. The O+ Promotional Media Package is just that! Ideal for single song releases and candid promos, the kit includes music access via a vinyl record, compact disc, USB flash drive and as an iTunes Download Code, bundled together.

Glam Pack For Blood

Glam Pack For Blood

The Sweet Donation Bag is an attempt to redesign the blood collection pouch. It features a sleeve with large cut-outs indicating the blood type (A, B, AB & O). The overall design is much more refined than the current bags in use and the packaging looks sturdy. If only the cut-outs would have indicated Type+ or Type- then I guess the impact would have been better. Slicker and tidier to look at; it won’t reduce the needle-prick pain!

Move-it When Shopping!

Move-it When Shopping!

The Move-it Kit is actually quite a neat idea for those who walk back home with all their shopping goodies. The DIY kit is a makeshift trolley that’s really durable and is made from self-adhesive cardboard parts. It transforms from reckless pieces of cardboard to a functional cart for parcels within minutes. You don’t have to be a genius to piece the cart together because its construction is very basic and simple.

UPDATE: David clarifies certain recycling apprehensions, read his story inside!

Swiss Army Coffee Cup

Swiss Army Coffee Cup

Did you know that Starbuck’s Coffee sells on average 30 MILLION cups of coffee a day? That’s almost 11 BILLION cups of coffee a year! As impressive as that statistic may be, the flip side of their fortune building is the tons and tons of wasted paper and plastic involved with every single caffeine fix. Designer Christopher Panopoulos does not have a solution for all that waste, but he does want the ubiquitous coffee cup to serve double duty and be slightly more sustainable. How about a Willy Wonka inspired edible lid? Or a lid that flips into an ashtray?

Sealing With A Hinge

Sealing With A Hinge

So far you have been sealing your cartons with either duct tape or normal transparent scotch tape. If you were to have the option of the X-tape, I’m sure you would have used it. Design is not always about problem solving or functionality. Sometimes elements of surprise, like this optical illusion “hinge” tape gives creativity the fun-edge that it requires. Mr Lee & Mr Park, how about sealing it with a kiss next time?

Take Out Memo

Take Out Memo

I’m not exactly sure why this memo pad comes in the form of a cup disguised as a blended coffee drink but hey, the straw is a pen so I’m sold. You either really love coffee and spend too much time thinking about it or intend to write poetic, yet humorous musings on each slip – a motivator like a real cup of coffee: if you will.

The Vitamins In Google Are So Good For You

The Vitamins In Google Are So Good For You

Brand power is everything in business and some people know how to milk it best. Sony, Microsoft, Apple, and our favorite Google…powerful names that carry a lot of weight. In the concept-design-world, the trick to get noticed is not to associate the brands with the obvious. For example, concept  Sony gadgets have been done to death, but a Google Envelope will attract more attention. Likewise having jaded Hollywood actresses sell fountain of youth pills pales in comparison to Google selling Vitamins.

Chanel Number 4 Of A Different Kind

Chanel Number 4 Of A Different Kind

It’s not a new fragrance by the popular couture brand that I’m getting here at, instead a clever packing design for travel kits. The number of lotions that metrosexual males and divas have to carry on their outstation trips is endless. Chanel 4 in One packs in 4 different lotions into a combo bottle and fits tidily in your suitcase. If I really must be picky about this near-flawless design, then I’d have to go with the glass bottle. For travel, plastic bottles are safer.

Can You Smell What I'm Reading?

Can You Smell What I’m Reading?

“Never judge a book by its cover” or “Never judge a perfume by its bottle”. Unless of course we are talking about this stunning collection of perfume bottles by Polish firm Ah&Oh Studio. They have taken inspiration from some of their favorite and most iconic pieces of literature and interpreted them as men’s fragrance bottles.

Book Journals My Shrinking Waistline

Book Journals My Shrinking Waistline

To lose weight you must decrease caloric intake and increase physical activity. Simple equation but damn hard to follow. Motivation is the all important and invisible variable and very few products on the market address it. Workbook 001, the Food & Fitness Diary flip book logs 26 weeks of nutrition and exercise. Following every two weeks you measure yourself and by the end of the year, even Kate Moss will envy you. Don’t believe me? Just flip thru the book and watch that shrinking waistline.
