Packages That Pop: Amelie’s & Friends

We are starting a new bi-weekly feature, in addition to ‘Typeface Tuesdays’ called ‘Packages That Pop’.

I’m probably preaching to the choir, but I am constantly amazed & saddened to see new small businesses open that are poorly branded. There is no consistency. No personality. Nothing to set it apart from box stores or any other shops.  The way you package & brand your ‘product’ – or choose not to, whether it is actual goods sold, a service etc… can make all the difference in a company. It is often seen as an unnecessary expense, when in reality, it is a crucial & sadly, over-estimated factor. Also contrary to public opinion – it doesn’t have to be that expensive. A little can go a long way.

We are lucky with the internet to see excellent examples of packaging & small business branding from across the world & we are excited to be sharing with you just a few of them that we run across. We hope you enjoy what we share & that it sparks your own creativity.

Our first example is restaurant called Amelie’s & Friends out of  West Sussex. Packaging by I Love Dust

Typeface Tuesday – Baby’s Breath

Tuesdays for 2013 will bring with them beautiful, odd & unique typefaces.

We are starting off today with Baby’s Breath by Keziah Chong.

“Baby’s Breath is a typeface formed with Gypsophila/Baby’s Breath. The meaning of Gypsophila is to miss, to adore, and to give. Gypsophila often serves a supporting role, but its existence is significant. This font should have a feeling of freshness, graciousness, and tenderness.”

Happy Twenty Thirteen to You

It’s time for resolutions. Ones that we say we will actually keep this year. One small way of starting afresh is by tossing that old calendar & starting over with something new & fancy.

Here are a few of our picks for the New Year.

The Story Behind ‘Keep Calm & Carry On’

Some of you may know the story behind this iconic poster, but I never had.
I thought it would be something worth sharing today. A bit of pop trivia for your Tuesday.
It actually has quite an interesting history. You might be surprised…
