No real home runs, hat tricks, or 360 slam dunks this week. Just a few quirky and unexpected projects: New Ukrainian kids television channel, Italian food packaging in Australia, and military vehicle museum in Moscow.

PlusPlus TV

Kids in Ukraine must have a higher threshold for creepy characters. Or *I* have a lower threshold for creepy characters. For PlusPlus, a new Ukrainian kids TV channel, London-based Build and Russian illustrator Edik Katykhin have created a flurry of geometric and abstract shapes with googly eyes and some badass facial hair that, through the motion graphics work of Animade, come alive in a Blair Witch kind of way. Creepy yet irresistibly cute. [(Not a lot more].

Casa Gusto

Casa Gusto

For Casa Gusto, a company in Australia that imports Italian food goodness, Sydney-based The Creative Method paired circus imagery with the company’s products, resulting in some funny combinations. The packaging isn’t the best any of us have seen but there is something pleasant about the vintage feel and an elephant standing on its front legs will always get a thumbs up from me. [More]

Vehicle Museum

Vehicle Museum

I seriously want to go to here: The Vehicle Museum of Vadim Zadorozhny in Moscow, the private collection of Mr. Zadorozhny that displays hundreds of cars, planes, tanks, and other military paraphernalia. (See loads of pictures here). Moscow-based Playoff has created an almost impossible logo that combines three separate classes of vehicles (see diagram above) into a single cohesive unit. In this case the gradients and realistic rendering definitely help the logo but it’s also nice to know (if you click on More) that there is a very competent single-color version. The logo is very much in the style of app icons but of its ilk this is one of the nicest I’ve seen. Plus: tanks! [More]
