Black Edge Painted Letterpress Business Cards

Black edge painted letterpress business cards for wedding photographer Paul Barnett by DelphineJust off press … some really cool letterpress business cards for a fabulous San Diego wedding photographer. We letterpressed the square business cards in dark black ink on double thick bright white cotton cover stock, with killer black edge painting detail. Love these!

In a previous life Paul Barnett was probably a doctor … just check out that crazy signature! Lucky for all you brides and grooms out there, Paul is living life as one of the most fabulous, charming, and super talented wedding photographers in all the land. Seriously, I can’t say enough good things about his work. His sense of humour is killer, and he has impeccable timing, too. Here’s a peek at what I’m talking about:

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.

sweetest treat of the fall season: candy corn

candy corn brachs packagingThis morning while fixing breakfast for my son I wore a sweater over my pjs … it’s officially Fall in my book, now. One thing that I look forward to each year is the return of Brach’s candy corn to the store shelves (and my belly).

I’m not too crazy about the new packaging. It’s not that it isn’t well designed … I like the layout just fine (and you know I’m a big fan of white space). I think candy corn is one of those nostalgic childhood memory type things … I miss the old packaging. Does that make me old?
