The Ministry of Typenenuno creative - digital design blog with a touch of creativity!Design ObserverPaper World by Eiko Ojala | Creative BlogCreative BlogBy looking at the work of Eiko Ojala I began to feel a smell of paper and glue that I remembered from crafts classes at school. Of course, our works were never as complex as his and also were not the subject of female characters scantily clothed … or not. The biggest achievement of ours was to be exposed to your work pane classroom, while Eiko is proud of his work that is presented in journal or book covers of known authors in Estonia. Enjoy!
Subtraction.comNew Logo and Packaging for Brand Bier by VBATEstablished in 1340 in Limburg, the southernmost of the 12 provinces of the Netherlands, Brand Bier is the oldest Dutch brewery. Its main product is a pilsner and it also produces seven other — Heavy Blonde, Double Bock, Lentebock, Up, Imperator, Sylvester, and Weizen. This past July, Brand introduced a new line of packaging designed by Amsterdam-based VBAT. There is a press release here but doesn’t really say much. The main element of the logo — the stunning and bad-ass blackletter — has been kept the same in the evolution but everything else has been well refined. Most refreshingly, the logo has been taken out of its constricting oval and given room to breathe. The previous look wasn’t offensive in any kind of way but it wasn’t memorable either. Each beer kind now has its own logo derived from the main logo, with a more consistent (and heavily ornamental) typographic approach that give the 6-packs a commanding shelf presence. Thanks to Marc Nijborg for the tip.
