Retro Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes | Nice Package

Retro Kellogg's Frosted Flakes | Nice Package via DelphineHow awesome are these retro looking boxes of Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes Target is carrying?! The design has a vintage look and feel and personally I’m a fan; the classic American fonts from the 50′s, and the less scary looking Tiger just makes the overall design look “gr-r-reat!”

Krak-n-Coke | Nice Package

Kraken Rum and Polar Bear Coke PackagingI’ve always been a sucker for good packaging. I can remember agonizing over Hello Kitty purchases at the mall, then hating to open the package when I got home so as not to ruin my new treasure.

These days I still love pretty packages. I try to only buy stuff I need, but I just couldn’t resist the awesome Kraken Rum bottle when I first spied it in the grocery store last summer. (Sidenote: California is awesome! We can buy alcohol in the grocery store!!) That was a few bottles ago, and it is now classified as a need. I’m slightly embarrassed to say how many we’ve gone through since that first bottle.

I also adore the cute white polar bear Coca Cola cans. Instead of hiding them in the pantry, I have them displayed on a shelf in the studio. Apparently the cans were a bust for Coca Cola, and they quickly revised the art to a red can because people were “confused.” But I think they’re great, don’t you?

RECIPE: Here’s how John makes Krak-n-Coke: fill highball glass with ice; add 2oz. rum; throw in a squeeze of lime (or a whole keylime); fill with Coke.

north county graphic design meetup: design book swap december 21, 2010

I’m excited to announce that our very own North County Graphic Designers group is having a book swap at our next morning coffee meetup! Here’s the scoop:

JOIN US: Tuesday, December 21, 2010 at 8am at E Street Café in Encinitas, California.

BRING: Up to three used design-related books that you’d like to swap. Books can be about graphic design, design software programming, art, or anything a designerd would like. Design magazines are also great (i.e. Communication Arts, HOW, Print, STEP, etc.).

DETAILS: For each book you bring you will get one ticket in the hat with your name on it. We’ll pick names and when your name is called go up to the table with all the books and pick a new one to take home. After everyone picks their books you can trade with other people if you’d like.

If you’re not already a member please do a “groups” search on LinkedIn for “North County Graphic Designers” and join the group. It’s free. I look forward to seeing everyone!
