Rubber Band Packaging

July 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Given the design brief, “go into a pound shop and pick a seemingly uninteresting object and rebrand it, increasing the value and interest,” graphic design student Ric Bixter selected elastic bands and created this absolutely killer packaging solution. The stronger the band, the more the box appears to be squeezed. I’d grab a box of these over any other. Nice work Ric. (via lovely package, david airey)

Love this set of 8 hand-poured crayons made to look like LEGO men. Looks like there’s a few sets left over at folsky.com (via svpply)

Traveling today, posting will be regrettably light!

Incredibly Intricate 3D Paper Infographics by Pattern Matters

May 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I know nothing about Pattern Matters and currently have an email into them to find out more info. From the look of their recently updated portfolio they are making some genuinely beautiful paper and typographic products from calendars to the stunning 3D posters you see here. Looking at the process photos the attention to detail exhibited here is simply mind-blowing.

Update: This is the work of Lim Siang Ching, a graphic design student in Singapore who is graduating from LASALLE College of the Arts. These are her degree projects.
