Baron Batch’s Angry Man Salsa – Packaging by Foundry Co

December 2nd, 2013

The majority of Salsa packaging out there isn’t the greatest, but the packaging for Baron Batch’s Angry Man Salsa is some of the best hands down. The jars sell for $20 a piece, but have unfortunately sold out. The packaging was designed by Foundry Co.

Check out the Angry Man website.

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.

1960s Lark Cigarette Packaging

December 21st, 2011

For such a self destructive product, the packaging design is rather good. It was originally designed by George Tscherny for Lark Cigarettes in 1968. For designs like this it would be interesting to see before and after sales among other things to figure out why the design style never stuck.

1980s Vintage Packaging Collection

October 12th, 2011

The 80s was an interesting time for packaging as it began to move into more complex graphics that were added to “help” sell the products. I’m not sure that more graphics helped move the product easier—people just like “new” things. I’m starting to wonder how far along down the line will products be immediately available to anyone. By that I mean, with instant meals you cook them there and then you have the meal to eat. At what point in time will we be able to ask for products and have them instantly compiled or delivered—essentially eliminating the shopping experience.

Vintage Philiform Ephemera

October 10th, 2011

The sheer design of these mid-century Philiform packages makes me want to tear up. The visual weights between the typography and shapes were beautifully combined. You just don’t get these combos any more. I remember seeing a similar box growing up—could have been Philiform—but unfortunately it was too long ago to recover the full memory.

Make sure to continue reading for more and also share this great design.


Sainsburys Vintage Packaging

October 4th, 2011

Sainsbury’s was founded in 1869 and has become the third largest chain of supermarkets in the United Kingdom. Sainsbury’s great in-house design team in the 60s and 70s produced these beautiful packaging samples.

Beautiful Vintage Packaging Part 2

August 24th, 2011

This is the second post of beautiful vintage packaging this week. Still hard to believe and a shame that this is a dying breed of design. These pieces were found on Tom Crabtree’s photostream.

Beautiful Vintage Packaging

August 22nd, 2011

Gold strike! It’s very hard to believe that this older, more beautiful design has fallen by the wayside. Also it is entirely unfortunate that there are a very few amount of designers today that still produce respectable results similar to the pieces shown here. Some of the pieces were for Graphis, but some are unknown. If you know, the original designers or sources let us know. Take a moment or several moments, and soak up these amazing pieces brought to us by Tom Crabtree.

Make sure to view the rest of the designs after the jump—they only get better!


Ducats 1980s Milk Packaging

August 9th, 2011

This is the packaging that I wish I could see in my refrigerator every morning. I don’t wish I had it as a child because then it would just be another thing that I didn’t appreciate until later in life—I wish I had it now. Put that packaging on anything and you have my attention. I would pay good money for one of these packages, hell I’d trade you an iPhone for one. It just makes me sad to know that the chance of this ever happening again in the mainstream is slim to never.

Vintage Candy Packaging

June 8th, 2011

After searching around for a while I’m led to believe that the majority of these vintage candy packages were from the 1980’s. The Pixy Stix and the Wrigleys Gum packaging however were from the 1960’s.

1970s Vintage Australian Packaging

April 19th, 2011

Getting my hands on some of this vintage Australian packaging from the 1970s would be downright awesome. What I wish was available alongside this packaging was a statistics chart showing the amount of sales, etc. Comparing that to the next redesign and similar products now would be interesting to see.

Tin Recovery Kits

December 10th, 2010

Knock Knock designed these retro-inspired tins that contain small gifts for a range of ailments. I particularly enjoy the cross amongst the repeating dots. It’s a bummer that bandaid containers or other various medical containers don’t look this good anymore.
