It’s Friday… throw us a bone!

Friday, June 5th, 2009
Happy Friday to everyone out there! This next post goes out to all of the pet owners and pet lovers. Us designers at JB Chicago love all animals and we believe that even our pets deserve the best treatment possible when it comes to design. Some of the best advertisements out there pertain to animals and how they make us laugh and smile! It’s our pets who help us out of our designer slump and give us that extra spark we need to get back in the game (OK, maybe not all of us have had that experience, but we think it’s true!). These next advertisements that we have found are all about cats and dogs. Some are quite cleverly executed and may even force a smile out of those out there who claim to not like cats or dogs.  So here’s to a puurrrfect Friday and a doggone good weekend! Enjoy!

Nice Package!

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

The product is all about the packaging! Good packaging design can definitely make or break a sale. Designers must think of clever ways to relate the packaging with the product itself, or simply use the product as a part of the packaging. In order to make the products stand out from other similar products on the shelves, designers must create only the best! Sometimes the cleaner and simpler, the better, but other times you must take extreme measures in order to grab the customer’s attention. Packaging design also takes on new roles with designers. We are now thinking in the three dimensional world versus the flat printed pieces. How will the package look from all sides and angles? And how can we get the viewers to interact with the piece as a whole? These next pieces showcase some of the best package designs we have collected. Feel free to share some of your own! Knock, Knock… your package has arrived!
