When France Gives You Champagne, You Make...

When France Gives You Champagne, You Make…

Beauteous industrial designs. Below check out three top amalgamations of the eco-friendly totally-new Veuve Clicquot champagne box. Devour the color of this “Design Box,” first of all. Look at that yellow! Or is it gold? With red accents. Oh then also it’s made of paper. Paper only. Less than 5% coverage with inks, glues, and solvents. And no plastic film. And micro-grooving is used to reduce the amount of paper in the packaging. AND the paper is FSC approved. What’s that mean?

You Been Dunkin' Long? Nice Cap.

You Been Dunkin’ Long? Nice Cap.

So you’ve got a mess of a tray there, coffee commuter. You look like you’re in the mood for a better top. Small innovations for a gigantic industry. Hot coffee’s new top is the “Coffee Top Caddie;” what basically amounts to a new mold for the plastic top that fits on top of your coffee cup. With this innovation, you can fit everything you need for that trip from the counter to your table or the order window to your car.

Are You Stressed? Break It!

Are You Stressed? Break It!

We all need stress relief. Some people internalize it. Some people lash out. You could pick up meditation or try to keep yourself busy but sometimes hitting something really hard is the quick (best) way to release all that tension. Break It is a body and mind relaxation kit – a meditation CD, some herb tea aren’t exactly new but in order to get to it, you have to “break it.” Pretend you’re a master martial artist and smash that sh*t open. Don’t worry, it’s made of potato starch.

Foldable Bowl

Foldable Bowl

This is so easy to figure out I don’t even have to explain it. I think it’s fabulous for camping, drinks, picnics, impromptu gatherings, or even when you’re too lazy to wash dishes. Tho you can use the Foldable Bowl for just about anything, I’d avoid hot foods. My only gripe is the material. Plastic, really? Do we need to go down that road again? I didn’t step into some alternate universe where plastic and nature get along fabulously right?

Better Than Bubble Wrap Says Mother Nature

Better Than Bubble Wrap Says Mother Nature

Plastic bubbles wraps are one of the chief sources of environmental degradation since our world revolves around the packaging and transport of goods. The Paper Wrap offers the same level of protection but at a very neutral cost to the planet. A precut symmetric pattern similar to a steel grate buffers precious goods but I see two faults. One, the flexibility of bubble wrap makes it more usable in a wide array of applications. Two, I can’t pop paper wrap and everyone knows humans have an OCD fascination with popping bubbles.

Fold Out Boxes Add A Bit Of Class To Lunch

Fold Out Boxes Add A Bit Of Class To Lunch

While few lunchtime experiences can best a classic superhero inspired box, these foldout gourmet lunch boxes by Emma smart definitely go the distance. Winning her a D&AD Yellow Pencil in packaging design, the challenge was to categorically separate the boxes while maintaining an overall sense of visual unity. Now if only there were one with a licensed fictional character I could pretend to be during lunch, my life would be complete.

Shop owners everywhere can make use of their bad milk by putting it on the cheese self now! And the graphics are really nice, right?

The Freshness of Labels

The Freshness of Labels

Bad meat. There’s nothing nastier. Though the area where I live has a pretty good hold on fresh food packaging and labeling, there’s always some stragglers. According to designer Naoki Hirota, mislabeled food is more than a tiny problem in some shops of the world. Thus, temporal labels are in order.

Or are they?

I Want Everything in Containers, OXO Pop Review

I Want Everything in Containers, OXO Pop Review

Okay I need to spread the word. A few months ago the OXO company sent me a bunch of their OXO Pop containers for review. I’ve never been one to store things in containers because I only buy enough of anything for immediate use. But things like cereals, rice, and pasta are bulk items. I’ve been on a container storing binge because the OXO Pop containers actually work. Hey, they won the Red Dot 2008 Product Design Award so there’s way more than meets the eye here.

Can't Get Fresher Than This

Can’t Get Fresher Than This

Eco Box is a concept to change the way we ripen, harvest, and deliver fresh fruit. The box is “packaged” around a fruit with plenty of holes for air circulation. The fruit is allowed to ripen this way reaching its full sweet potential. The box protects the fruit from insects and when it’s ready, picked and ready to be sold.

Watch Out! Don't Cut Your Tongue

Watch Out! Don’t Cut Your Tongue

So here’s something different from usual posts. It’s not tech related, not I.D. per say, and tho simple, is plenty difficult to execute. Fragile candy sends a sharp message. I taste good but I’m also bad for you. Mmm no suspended fruit? I demand anything clear must have suspended fruit!

AWKWARD!!!

AWKWARD!!!

Not many things in life can be more embarrassing than being incontinent. No, I don’t mean being in a continent like Australia or Disney World. I mean the loss of control of ones’ bodily waste. It’s a sad reality and should not be something that makes people uncomfortable in any way, but it does. Well to alleviate some of this embarrassment, designer Morgane Franck de Préaumont has created innovative packaging called “Epure”.
