Even Better with Age
Stocks Taylor Benson are toasting 25 years of the finest, spirited design by sharing a special edition gift with their clients.
With 1988 being a very good year for design and whisky, Stocks Taylor Benson thought it would be a rather neat idea to create a presentation box set – containing a dram of Glenfarclas 25 year old single malt whisky and a drop of complementing Cairngorms Well still water. Each of the boxes is numbered, by hand, as a 1-250 special edition.
Labelled as ‘Dram Good Design’ and ‘Well Clever Ideas since 1988’ – using crafted typography, printed using black ink, orange foils and heavy indents onto natural white paper – the bottles are displayed in an unexpected bright orange fabric, true to the company’s branding. The packaging itself is hand finished, with a rigid lid wrapped in a distinctive orange-foiled, brown, uncoated paper and a box wrapped in a premium, silver-foiled, rich black, textured paper. Once the box is opened the recipient is invited to share in a wee toast, “Here’s tae 25 years of spirited graphic design”, foiled onto a heavyweight board flap that hides the contents and builds the sense of anticipation.
Placed in the box is a literature piece, titled ‘Aged for 25 Years’, that tells the story of good ol’ Stocks Taylor Benson, the supreme Glenfarclas whisky and how adding a drop of water to the dram reveals distinctive aromas. Finished off with ‘The Age-old Story’, it ultimately celebrates the studio’s history and achievements over the last quarter of a century.
The typography has been crafted with subtle details to both engage and inspire the audience. Woodcut illustrations, with a beautifully simple style, further add to the heritage and sense of tradition that’s appropriate for a vintage whisky. A considered use of the typeface Avenir, designed by Adrian Frutiger in the same year, 1988, is a lovely detail and adds a very subtle connection to when the studio was established. A selection of Antalis supplied Arjowiggins Keaykolour papers and boards – 100% Recycled Hazel, Original Jet Black, reKreate Nightfall and Original Snow White – have been used to create a naturally textured and crafted feel.

College football will enter a new era under the name College Football Playoff beginning with the 2014-15 season. Arizona's Fiesta Bowl along with other bowls are bidding to host the National Championship Game rather than automatically receiving it via a 3-year rotation. Striving to be the host for 2016 the Arizona Fiesta Bowl, along with various organization and officials, made a statewide effort entitled "Arizona 2016".
The Fiesta Bowl's approach to highlighting Arizona through an interactive packaging concept that focused on Arizona's award winning University of Phoenix stadium, began with many improbable concepts. Struggling with the realities and limitations of packaging design and manufacturing, Fiesta Bowl's Ryan Lowry consulted with personal friends Evelio Mattos and Robert Repta from Design Packaging.
Design Packaging's creative team was extremely helpful and open in sharing ways that we would be able to manufacture this concept within the Fiesta Bowl's tight deadline using the Fiesta Bowls suppliers. With the agreed upon direction Ryan approached Prisma Graphics, a trusted partner of the Fiesta Bowl, and developed a game plan for manufacturing the package design within their capabilities. Designer Chad Carmody provided tremendous advice on paper choices and a layout that provided the spirit of the stadium while being durable for mailing and being realistic to produce 50 final copies within a week.
The complete package design represents the stadium, the box's interior recreates the football experience with angled stadium seating and a small-scale field in the center. Illustrated on the exterior are the 7 flags signifying the National Championship Games that the Fiesta Bowl has previously hosted. These banners serve as a testament to the organization's experience and ability with a game of this caliber. The bottom of the box houses the bid book, which replicates the stadium's retractable field wrapped in turf material complete with airbrushed field lines. An experience made possible by using the diecut thumb notches. The book's design features various beauty shots of Arizona staggered among the stadium's technical data and regional information. Spiral binding was chosen due to the turf cover and for it's easy flip through ability.
In a way this keepsake box symbolizes how amazing Arizona is. Along with being a beautiful destination, there is a very welcoming, established and open design community here. The creatives that made this possible coupled with events like Phoenix Design Week continue to inspire true collaborative projects like this and showcase Arizona's amazing community.

WTF is a telecom service targeted to a younger audience (15-25) launched in 2013,based on communications using intenet, apps and smartphones.
Brand identity was designed to meet this generation universe and inspiration comes from Internet origins and visual language, which we recreated with an injection of contemporaneity, creating an unexpected branding experience.
The launch pack of this brand can be nothing but a piece that puts brand’s name on audience’s mouth. The SIM card was packed in a sardines can, a typical portuguesefish that usually moves in very large shoals (groups) and is caught in a net.

The Briefing (In Brief): We have a series of materials related to construction and building. The brand's name translates as "construction". We want a packaging which will convey this in a simple, modern, distinctive way.
The target consumer: Professionals in building, and common people who have simple construction works as a hobby.
The design: We focused on the idea of construction and used Tetris game as our reference platform. The highly successful tile - matching puzzle video game, was launched in the 80's and is based on the random sequence of Tetriminos (color shapes composed of four square blocks each) which fall down the playing field - the "well" or "matrix" - to form specific structures. If it is true that play is at the base of every creative activity and if we all share building-with-cubes childhood memories, we designed the BAU packaging as a fun way to bring the "matrix" to adult realities.
