Olive The Best

Happy holidays, all! We’ve certainly been absent of late, but in the meantime have been collecting lots of great material to share. Will do our best to use some of our much-needed time off constructively and post it! Cheers to you and thanks for following. xx

Drip Maple

Adore the simplicity and elegant typography of Drip‘s identity. Très enchanté!

The Black Workshop

Absolute. Perfection.

Dennis Adelmann

I was surprised to discover Dennis Adelmann isn’t the creator of the Ikea Fika cookbook visuals, but nonetheless, these compositions still satisfy the OCD designer-foodie in me.

Vintage Dutch Package Designs

Keeping my eyes peeled for these canisters at the markets. (via The Dieline)

Old Fashioned in the Rocks

Experiential chef Grant Achatz and team experiment with mixes injected into hollow ice spheres. Crack one open and enjoy, Mandy!

Food Huggers

Just launched on Kickstarter! Food Huggers are the brainchild of dream team Michelle Ivankovic and Adrienne McNicholas. Check out the campaign and support smart thinking.

Santa Cruz

Totally digging this handcrafted identity for a Mexican BBQ takeaway joint. Design by Anagrama.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
