With Spine Vodka, Johannes Schulz took the premise of a “drinking backbone” quite literally, designing this unique bottle featuring a beautiful amber spine and ribcage running up the interior-center of it. The contrast between transparent glass and opaque amber is seriously eye-catching and distinctive.
Anti & Grandpeople racked their brains to come up with an easy way to fill in those mysterious blanks after a long night out. The awesome result was Arcus’ Black Vodka branding and packaging design centered around simple typography that invites you – the avid vodka aficionado – to fill in the blanks as you go along.
Just 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle you will find the fishing port of Akureyri, Iceland. Water flows from prehistoric glaciers, down the HlíðarGall Mountain, through lava fields and eventually into the river Glerá that runs through town, delivering the purest water on earth and the perfect foundation for brewing deliciously refreshing craft ales.
Well isn’t this just a double barrel of awesomeness… Who doesn’t love beer? And if you’re even reading this website then there is a pretty high chance you love Helvetica too. Russian designer Sasha Kischenko has merged these two loves with quality packaging concept for a Swiss beer. Thats about all we know about the project, and with it about 30 degrees outside I could certainly murder a couple!
This concept is a collaborative effort of a school project at the Icelandic Academy of the Arts. The course topic: From Idea to Market. A top job with a clear minimalistic design which has earned acknowledgement from the Icelandic Graphic Design Association. I’m hoping/expecting to see these in the production line sometime soon!

Even though we know very little about this awesome bottle design we absolutely love it.

Norwegian designer Daniel Brokstad brings us this epic range of unholy wines he calls ‘Possession’. Minimal, dark and potent, great work Dan. Possession is a limited edition unholy wine collection, featuring “Evil Demon – Bloody Shiraz”, “Haunting Ghost – Spooky Cabernet” and “Old Witch – Cursed Pinot Noir”.
While certainly not the most glamorous of products, Kyle Tolley in collaboration with Sarah Graves have created beautifully simple packaging for sanitary protection. Within their rethinking and re-branding they have created packaging that encourages buyer confidence as well as being environmentally friendly and recyclable. Using the least amount of glue and other fastening methods possible they actually came up with a way of folding the entire range.
The Oliveo logo and packaging was created by Leo9Studio for the Spanish based olive oil company. The brief was apparently as simple as building the brand identity on the products numerous benefits like non-cholestrol and high nutritional values. Oh, and the company also wanted to have an olive in the logo. Haha.
