This spread was not very effective for me. Im personally using the same concept with the image that covers 3/4 of the spread but I think my execution of it is better. I feel like right where the seem is too much is lost in this image. To do this and make it look more effective I believe the focus of the image has to be on one side not breaking it up in an awkward place. this spread looks ok. But it could be better!
I really enjoy when a package is more than just a package. This is one of the bast example I found of that. I’m sure it would cost more, but the end product is so much more effective and the package is more then just something to throw in the trash. Personally i hate when you have to dirty a knife just to use some butter! This package eliminates that problem and looks good doing so!
The reason I really like the design of the bottle is the use of the liquid as a color and not just a liquid that has to be there. I think the colors that are on each bottle work perfectly with the color of the liquid. Besides for the colors I think the caps are extremely unique and make the bottle more attractive. How the colors play in with the caps are great.
Coffee table books have long been my favorite type of books.. That is because most have very little text which means I can enjoy the pictures and not read anything! Spreads like this one have inspired my in my design in focusing more on getting good images and how the images are used on the page. In this spread there is no text that I can see.. but the images are so strong the text is not needed. That is what I want to accomplish in a sense in my book.
In my opinion 3 Floyds beers have some of the most interesting package designs I have seen. :Personally I don’t love the beer itself… but the bottles artwork is so interesting I want to buy it just to display it. I think its the bright colors that draw me it…its something about the pop of the bright colors up against the brown beer bottle that I really enjoy. Also the artwork with all the details is amazing.
I really like this package design because of the creativity put into it. The design is really simple, well the package doesn’t really have much of a design at all. Th part that I think is great is the use of the actual headphones. The fact that the actual product was turned into the focal point of the design is great. I think this is a very unique and successful package design where the designer though outside the box!
I feel as if I always talk about the good designs on here… So just to mix it up, so here is a bad one! Where do you even start with this one? Its hard to really find anything positive about it. There really is just about no attempt to design anything for this product. And why is the label for the price that strange shape? I guess that was the attempt at adding a design element… And on top if it all the label isn’t even centered… just not good.
I have spent a lot of time looking through different layouts for travel books. Some I have really liked some not so much. This particular spread I have mixed feelings about. I really like the use of the full spread picture but I don’t like the spacing on the bottom. I’m all for white space but it feels as if there is way too much. And the spacing between the paragraphs on the right seems a little large. maybe if the text was justified it wouldn’t look as strange to me? I do also like the idea of the chapter, So I like the spread but don’t love it…
I think this package and bottle design for Samurai Vodka are amazing. To me it literally look like in some way the bottle is a samurai sward. The handle is probably my favorite part about it but the unique shape of the bottle also gives a sharp feel. The box also has the sharp angle going through the package making it look almost as if it was chopped in half by a samurai sword. I’m not sure what the pattern is on the box but I think it fits well with the rest of the design. Color wise the black and red work perfect and on top of all that the staging of everything to create the picture is brilliant.
