Compliments of David Freidman
Loving this chocolate packaging I discovered on FFFFOUND (also seen on The Dieline). The name of the company is Askinosie Chocolates founded by a criminal-defense-lawyer-turned-chocolatier who has a profit sharing program with the farmers who make his business possible.
Designed with 250,000 Euro cents with the intention that people would interact with it, rearrange it, or take it. Unfortunately, the Amsterdam police, afraid someone would ruin the art, decided it would be best just to clean it up.
It describes my life so well.
…my birthday is rapidly approaching…
Some beautiful work from Nactionale / Doug Alves a Brazilian artist and illustrator in LA.
The Museum of Arts and Design (or MAD) in New York opened its doors this weekend with a lovely kick-off thanks to Pentagram. They created a lovely typeface Pentagram named MAD face (…what else?) by combining squares and circles – and as you can imagine is very fun, but hardly legible.
Here are a few shots of this ingenious work of branding. Delicious.
