It’s Gonna Be A Good Year

How about this for creative packaging? A wine label completely unglued to the bottle itself attached by a rubber band. Why? Because it’s a poster!

2010 is the name of the wine and it has a very positive outlook on the year. The poster reads “Got a feeling it’s gonna be a good year”. After the wine is finished, hang the poster on your wall or refrigerator and return the wine bottle. Now don’t quote me but according to the 2010 Minnesota Recycling Refund Act, each returned bottle accounts for 10 cents. You do the math….it’s gonna be a good year!

It’s What’s Outside That Counts

One function of packaging is describing what’s inside. Here are a few fun, clever examples that demonstrate this function.

Hot Dog: A coffee shop called TrueCoffee expanded their food range to a quick bite hot dog. They wanted hot dog packaging to attract teenagers and this is what Bangkok-based designer Subconscious came up with. The unique characteristic of the food was that it’s hot all the time.

Swell Drinks: The Ruiz Company in Barcelona came up with a great way to show the fruit combination in their new line of smoothies. Simple and unique.
