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!”

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Basil Hand Soap | Nice Package

When I saw Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Basil Hand Soap in the store, I couldn’t resist picking it up for the Delphine studio. The typography is solid, the illustration is adorable, its label is in one of my favorite green hues … and it smells lovely!

The entire line of Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day products are equally gorgeous, thanks to Mono of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Giovanni’s Lobster Pâté | Nice Package

lobster pate can packaging via delphineI’ve never had lobster pâté, but Giovanni’s packaging sure makes it tempting to try. This packaging caught my eye with its vintage style script and serif typeface pairing … and certainly its retro color palette with that beautiful powder blue and lobster red.

Pickle Chips | a Delicious Green Color Palette

green and yellow pickle chips color palette via delphineI picked these Lays dill pickle chips up at the Coming Street corner store the other day. The flavor intrigued me (and I’m happy to report they are delicious). Also noticed that the colors on the package are my favorites … lime greens and yellows. Then I noticed that the colors match my Orla Kiely wallet perfectly. I guess I’m pretty predictable when it comes to favorite color palettes.

Moretti Polenta | Nice Package

Moretti Polenta Package DesignIt’s too hot to stand over a stove stirring Polenta right now, which is the only reason I didn’t scoop up a package of Moretti when I was at the grocery store the other day. The packaging is delightful that I can pretty much guarantee my kid would eat this if he saw the package first.

J. R. Watkins Natural Apothecary | Nice Package

J.R. Watkins Package DesignYou all (or, now that I’m back home in SC, “y’all”) know I’m a sucker for package design. I love the J. R. Watkins packaging so much that I now skip the tedious step of transferring dish soap and hand soap to another container. I just leave them out on my sink! I first spotted them at Target, but there are lots more products for sale directly from J. R. Watkins and next time I run low I’m going to order directly from the source.

I do some package design for a Scandinavian apothecary, and my goal is always to design something that the user will display on their counter, not hide in a cabinet. From a designer’s perspective, this brand is getting it right: the branding and design is consistent, but not boring. The color palette references the scent of the product, and I like how they have left the actual product clear/free of dyes. I looked around the web and can’t find credit for who is responsible for the design, so I think they are doing it in house. Love it!

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.
