Lovely Packagings on Lovely Package
Tuesday, 7 August 2012
I've been dipping my baby toe in packaging design the last couple of weeks as I help out a friend with her exciting new venture. For that reason, I've been spending some time browsing the Lovely Package site and yep, it does indeed show off all that the title promises.
There are SO many brilliant things on there but this wine label below struck a chord with me. My first ever design job out of uni was at a small wine label/branding studio in London. I wasn't very good at it I admit but learnt alot and because of working there I now appreciate how hard it is to do well.*
*I still now, at my supposedly wise old age, buy wines for their lovely labels... I know that makes me very unclassy but hey, that way if it doesn't taste nice it'll still look good right?!

If you're in need of a pep talk with yourself then go have a flick(r!) through this gorgeous and inspiring 365 day project by Julian Bialowas. This one above feels particularly apt for me at the moment. I sometimes find myself feeling frustrated and a little guilty that I've achieved nothing in a day... so it's good to remind myself that watching, playing with and helping a little human grow day by day is not a waste of time at all. hip hip hooray. pep talk sucess!
