2012 Food Packaging Roundup

Maybe we should judge a product by its package more often: Buzzfeed’s compilation of the best food and drink packaging designs of 2012. Shout-out to DW for #10, and all the crazy ‘drunkles’ out there. C’mon, everybody has one.

Swell

It’s all in the details. The negative space between the two ‘l’s’ resembles a hair follicle, and is echoed in the label gap that’s utilized on the face of the product. So smart. By Aloof, UK.

Gustav Almestål

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.
