Java Tea Co
Barbara is a BIG tea lover, and she found a small west coast tea company called Java Tea Co. By supporting their small company through the Kickstarter Program, she received three different teas packaged in hand-labeled tins. We loved the logo, packaging, and amazing smell delivered with these teas.
Chava recently went to Mexico and shared some great items with us. Among them was this beautiful package design for AU Olive Oil. AU is the symbol for the element gold in the periodic table, and the package itself resembles a brick of gold. This is to convey the value and pureness of the product. “AUsome” share, Chava!
We are all familiar with the iconic Old Spice buoy bottle. Yes, it might seem dated, but vintage brands have been on the comeback trail for a while now. Old Spice has some great marketing strategies that are getting noticed by the younger target markets. From ridiculous commercials to tag lines such as “If your Grandfather hadn’t worn it you wouldn’t exist,” we are all enjoying their latest campaigns.
Did we mention that Barbara LOVES tea? And she’s making us all fans! This Argo Tea was very colorful and eye catching on the retail shelf. We liked that it was packaged in glass bottles, which gave the impression of a higher end product than those in plastic bottles. We liked the icons and images used in the design, and the flavors are unique and piqued our interest to try them all. Well done, Argo!
John shared the packaging design of an Oregon based chocolatier, Moonstruck Chocolate Co. We were impressed by how much fun and whimsy they achieved in their mostly one color designs. And we loved how the illustration continues around all four sides of the package. It takes a really special design to make us hesitate before we devour the chocolate inside, and this one did.
