A-Z | Wedding Bells

As the UK celebrates the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton today, 
we decided to honour this special occasion by looking at what the high street can 
offer in the way for Royal Wedding packaging. So get out the bunting and enjoy... 

The old good British pie gets a makeover for the big day from pieminister.

The retro typography was hunted from Hemingway's 'Land of the Lost Archive' the world's largest archive of 20th century pop culture.

From the big and bold to the monochromatic, his work is a mix of classic designs handpicked from the past 30 years.

Wayne Hemingway comments "The history of typography is rich and often well-documented but most of these prints have never been published before, so enjoy a rare bit of design history." Hemingway's posters are available to buy from East End Prints View/buy your prints here

The print collection begins the countdown to Vintage at Southbank Festival in July, influenced by the 1951 Festival of Britain.

Earth Day 2011

A perfect choice for Earth Day- 22 April 2011!
We have designed a range of eco paper and cleaning products for Tesco’s US chain Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market. The range consists of everyday paper products, such as paper towels, bath tissue and facial tissue, and household cleaners such as dish liquid, laundry detergent and cleaning sprays.
The paper goods are made from 100% recycled paper with 80% post consumer waste and whitened without chlorine. They are also uniquely packaged in a plastic outer wrap, which expires in 12-18 months, eliminating any contribution to landfill.

The cleaners are made from a plant based formula, free from phosphates, dyes and perfumes, they are pH neutral, biodegradable and scented with essential oils.

“The target consumer would be making a conscious effort to buy green products so creating a brand look that was iconic, strong and clear was very important to us. We wanted the design to have a friendly and approachable look and feel, taking cues from nature and plants. We created a hand drawn logo that looks organic and has a unique personality. We also needed to ensure that the product would be clearly visible on shelf and the branding reflects the benefits of the product.“
