Design Food History

Take a sip from the original coke bottle

May 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Let’s turn back the clock a bit. It’s a hot day in 1886 and you’re sitting on the back porch of your great-great-great grandfather’s homestead as he talks about how some fellas up in New York are erecting a huge statue of a lady called the Statue of Liberty and then trails off into a long-winded diatribe about Grover Cleveland’s economic policies. Suddenly the screen door slams and your great-great-great grandmother emerges from the kitchen holding two sweaty glass bottles of dark brown liquid fresh from the ice box labeled as John Pemberton’s Coca-Cola. Refreshing. Now you can re-live these nostalgic days of over a century ago with a 125th anniversary bottle of Coca-Cola available at Selfridges for a limited time. (via svpply)

A-1 Scrabble Designer Edition

February 21, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A-1 Scrabble Designer Edition is a student project by Andrew Clifford Capener in which he proposes the ability to order a game board with customized typography. Yes!

The set would come in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.

A game board this sexy could reinvigorate an entire industry. Nice work Andrew. (via lovely package)

Society 27: Sneaker/Shoe Model No.1

January 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Society27 is a collective of designers working together to create 27 pieces of whatever product they decide to focus on. For their first project they’ve selected shoes and Sneaker/Shoe Model No.1 is the result of months of work. Want a pair? There’s only 27 in existence (made to order) and you need to email [email protected] with your $240 ready. Not only are the shoes insanely beautiful but the carved wooden packaging and overall identity work is stunning. For the hell of it look at this sweet, splintery identity piece they put together:

Bee Raw Honey

January 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

In my day when you went to the grocery store there were only two types of honey: a big plastic bear with a yellow hat, or a small one. These days honey packaging and identity is undergoing a renaissance. From the minimalist, laboratory-inspired Ballard Bee Company to the very clever Sheffield Honey Company. But the beautiful honey flights shown above from Bee Raw in New York really take the cake for me. The packaging is almost as much art as it is function. Some of their stuff is currently out of stock, but the nine varietal and cheese flight are still available.
