A range of soft-colored projects from very different industries this week, with work from Lisbon, London, and Oklahoma City. (Descriptions are a little shorter than usual due to travel and time constraints this Friday, due to First Round in Portland.)

8950 by Joana Areal

8950 by Joana Areal

8950 is a brand of skincare products from Portugal using all natural ingredients and plastic-free packaging — instead it comes in a lovely ceramic container. (I couldn’t figure out what the name stands for.) The identity, designed by Lisbon, Portugal-based Joana Areal, is über minimalist, with the name typeset in a simple sans serif and each number underscored… what elevates this beyond another ho-hum simple design is how stunning it looks embossed in the ceramic bottles and the classy color palette for the boxes and labels. I’ll admit that I was also swayed by the rocky presentation. See full project

Casa Cardona Wines by Marçal Prats

Casa Cardona Wines by Marçal Prats

Casa Cardona is a very limited edition of wines that were purchased by a group of friends in Barcelona and intended for personal (re)distribution only, under the new moniker, taken from Cardona Square, Barcelona. The packaging, by London, UK-based Marçal Prats, takes inspiration from 1960s Op-art and renders portraits of the friends in a cool, trippy style that would probably be fairly un-marketable if this were a widely distributed commercial product but as a kind of artistic expression on a bottle, it’s quite fun. Like 8950 above, I’m also swayed by the extra trippy presentation of the bottles with additional color stripes illuminated unto the bottles for an additional hit of Op-art. See full project

Foreword by Ghost

Foreword by Ghost

Foreword provides leadership consulting for executives to help them become better leaders or help them establish strong cultures in their workplace. Designed by Oklahoma City, OK-based Ghost, the identity is quite straightforward with a nice sans serif wrapped inside a bookmark holding shape that, as a bonus, has a neat arrow in the negative space at the beginning. It’s nothing groundbreaking but it’s very nicely deployed in print applications on a lovely range of colored stock and a slick use of clear foil stamping. Also, I would wear those pins for no reason whatsoever other than they are nice as F. See full project
