Obsessed with the idea of envelope embossed signatures. A modern take on the classic watermark, take cues from Vera Wang, Kate Spade and Ellen Weldon below… getting your brand out there can be both sophisticated and chic.
Would I ever! Julian, a restaurant in Kansas City created by James Beard award-winning chef Celina Tio serves up refined twists on comfort food. The name inspiration – Tio’s main cooking influences, Julia Child and her grandfather Julian. The brand identity designed by Brent Anderson, Nathaniel Cooper and Jordan Michael Gray of Bernstein-Rein is nothing short of genius. Congratulations guys on the 2010 Gold Addy Award in the category of Mixed-Media, Local Consumer. Not only is this branding fabulous on the surface but dig deeper to uncover the tasty little details like punchy copy on coasters, take out boxes, and tees, the holed menu holder and peg board, the launch gift of a wooden spoon, the restroom signage, and the chef’s John Hancock on the business card. My only change would be to match the take home bag to the box and make it kraft but that’s just me being nit-picky. Brava fellas!
David Mikush, a student at Creative Circus in Atlanta, created the below Burt & Bumble handmade honey products and packaging as an extension of Burt’s Bees line of earth-conscious, natural beeswax products. He and another designer, Samantha Schneider wanted to capture the right aesthetic for new products of the environmentally responsible brand. The designers chose beautiful bottles and jars with copper tops and I adore the wood box containing an assortment of honey, even the handle looks like the honey dipper. The finished result – super sweet!

or smitten I should say with Truly Smitten’s brand identity package for Vale of Enna. Organic in shape, texture, and color choice this branding package is pleasantly perfect for a flower shop. Letterpress alone makes me swoon but this die cut business card is magnificent! I have one suggestion to make this stationery suite utterly sense-sational, I would spray a light floral scent with each note making this shop simply impossible to forget.

As a passerby, who can resist piles of cookies clustered in a window? Definitely a draw for me, I had to see what this bakery had to offer. Upon entering I thought I had gone to heaven, Bird Bath Bakery not only smells divine but I learned they are a Green bakery, using all organic ingredients and their space and supplies are as sustainable as they come. The ultimate test was the tasting and I can assure you no crumbs will remain uneaten. The cookie package below contains an assortment of chocolate chip, all chocolate and oatmeal raisin cookies for $15, perfect as a hostess gift or if you are having company over. I brought a set to a superbowl party and within minutes all the cookies disappeared. Go on and let your inner monster have a treat or TWO.
