Richard from Thompson Brand Partners recently sent me out a nice piece of print they produced for printer Kingsbury Press. ‘Work & Turn’, is a new quarterly showcase promoting their print and finishing services to new and existing clients. Kingsbury commissioned Thompson Brand Partners to develop a way of celebrating their high-end craft, whilst grabbing the attention of their designer target audience.
New packaging design by Stockholm Design Lab for Swedish whisky brand Mackmyra. As SDL explains:
'Our relationship with Mackmyra began in 2013 when they approached us to help create packaging for their seasonal limited edition whiskey’s; our first assignment was (Mid-winter). The winter whisky had matured in mull wine barrels, giving it a hint of the traditional Scandinavian winter beverage, and a taste of Mackmyra’s dedication to its Swedish origin. We designed a frost white, label-less bottle that embodied the characteristics of the northern mid-winter; scarce and cold, yet surprisingly intriguing and appealing. To support and strengthen the minimal expression we created a rigid, bold, and straightforward typographic expression, that has become the signature for the series.
Our latest collaboration, the limited edition (Midnight sun) was launched in the spring of 2014, just in time for the traditional Swedish midsummer celebration.'
Denis from Bunch has emailed about a recent collaborative project with Cerovski Print Boutique and Hyperactive. The 'Print Poetry' Twitter competition aims to get you thinking creatively through print-related rhymes, which you can then enter to be in with the chance of having your rhyme printed on a limited edition set of tote bags.
