Nicky the Chan by Neil Brian

I love that blue!  and the business cards look different then other normal business cards.  It has that texture effect to it.  everything goes good together with the color palette.  It feels complete and is a nice presentation

This bring me back to an example of a student in this class with the pattern inside of the envelope.  Im not sure if i like the black with this color palette. That could be replaced with another color maybe a darker green or something. Bringing in the Iphone app gets the post acrossed that it is a mobile application.  I like this

I like the cut out idea.  it is something that not everyone using.  it is a smart way to be different and simple.  I think it is effective just because the cut out is different.  The colors are bold and like a matte color.  I am not all about flashyness to design.  it might work for some people but simple is what i like

Again this is for wine and not beer but I still love the design. I like the very vintage and modern feel that the designer was able to accomplish with this particular bottle. Although it is overcome by text, it isn’t boring text so I feel the consumer would still want to read it, especially if they’re enjoying a glass by themselves. (via Packaging | 2/9 | Serifs & Sans)

I love the design concept of this beer because the designer kept the elements of his design throughout all the different beers and only indicated they were different by color. I love that he used geometric shapes and lines to draw the animals the beers were named after. The color palette also goes together really well. (via Revertis Beer Packaging Design on Behance)

These different beverages have a very successful package design because they all stay cohesive with each other but immediately convey each different use for each different beverage which is what makes the design so successful. (via package design)
