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.

Dutch brand agency THEY commissioned numerous designers to create alternative packaging for their own brand of champagne, Zarb (French for ‘bizarre’). See much more over at Dezeen. (via iain claridge)

Please Read Responsibly: A 12-Part Detective Series Printed On Beer Labels

December 1, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Massachusetts microbrewery Just Beer has released a limited edition case of IPA with a 12-chapter detective melodrama printed on the labels.

“The Case of the IPA” is a hard-boiled detective farce printed chapter by chapter on 12 bottles of a newly released India Pale Ale. Each 22 ounce bottle not only has 22 ounces of brilliantly deduced IPA, but also 1 of the 12 chapters of the story. Each case has 12 bottles, which makes for the entire tale told in a case. And so, the Case of the IPA is indeed a case of the IPA.

Brewed by Harry Smith, written by Paul Goodchild.

Hamilton Fray Wine Packaging

November 10, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Birds on wine labels? I’ll take a case. Great packaging for Hamilton Fray by Motto. Each wine type is represented by a bird that lives natively on the property of the vineyard. Ah, with notes of blueberry, chocolate, and finch. (via lovely package)
