Fresh 7-Eleven Sandwich Packaging by BVD

July 14th, 2013






Ever since BVD released their awesome 7-Eleven rebrand I’ve had my eye on their portfolio. BVD’s newest project, for Reitan, was a design new packaging for 7-Eleven’s sandwiches. The best part about this design is that it’s type only. No other useless graphic elements creating clutter in the design.

Remembering shortcuts for all of your applications is fairly tough. This keyboard concept designed by Maxim Mezentsev & Aleksander Suhih solves that issue. The keyboard keys would show custom buttons for each program that you use (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, etc). Potentially you could even set the keys in the font of your choice.
