Whilst my borrowed Mac is being set up I’m still without Photoshop for my blog images, limiting me to what I can post, but I’m not going to let that get in the way! So today I’m bringing you some really great packaging designs. As you know I love packing, I’ve written lots of posts about this subject, and I found these wonderful designs across the internet which I couldn’t resist as they’re too good to miss…

Whilst researching for my Easter Egg post I found these delicious delights. No I’m not talking about the chocolate, even though hot cross bun, gin and tonic and honey flavoured chocolate is very tempting, I’m more interested in the decadent labels or wrappers covering the chocolate.
These wonderful creations are from Coco, who are artisan chocolatiers based in Edinburgh and were one of Scotland’s first chocolatiers. They feature flowers, geometrics, raindrops and even swans! How beautiful and detailed are they? I would happily buy this chocolate just for the labels, they are like a work of art and I want to collect them all!
So next time anyone visits Edinburgh, please buy me some of this wonderful chocolate! I’ll be forever grateful.
Christmas is a time to indulge in a few little luxuries, and these (not so) guilty pleasures are always accompanied with mesmerising packaging. This is what excites me most about Christmas – hey, that’s the designer in me!
Over the past few weeks I’ve secretly been scouring the shops, whilst Christmas shopping, to find some beautiful designs to share with you. Here are a few of my favourites…
1. Stem Ginger & Dark chocolate Biscuits from Selfridges 2. Rozsavolgyi Milk Chocolate with Himalaya Salt from Selfridges 3. Curry & Chips Milk Chocolate Bar from Mighty Fine Chocolate 4. Wellness Blend Tea from Kusmi Tea 5. KAH Day of the Dead Tequila from Harvey Nichols 6. Prestat London Gin Truffles from Waitrose 7. French, Himalayan, New Zealand Salt Collection from Salt House 8. D1 London Gin from Harvey Nichols
Recently I have been drawn to beautiful, simple labelling on glass bottles and jars. The simple typography set against the clean lines of the bottles, helps to create a stunning design piece that stands out against the busy packaging we’re used to seeing.
