This is some pretty clever packing by ChappsMalina and Little Fury, for Help. I love that the focus is on the symptom and not the cure. Anyone who’s stood in a pharmacy, blankly staring at the hundreds of headache remedies can surely relate.

Bonus easter egg: try making all the packs on the home page disappear by clicking on them.

I love me a good matching game and the Switzerland by Momento happens to be my current favorite, however, I think this new one by the Brazilian design studio ps.2 could be a new contender. This typographic memory game was created as a self-promotion and features 20 different type families. It comes complete with a typographical glossary and history of each font, making this a designers dream game and a typographer’s porn 😉

Glass Beverage Bottles

I’ve seen images of similar bottles online and was completley smitten. I love it when someone can appropriate the language of something unappealing and wasteful and turn it into an object of beauty. With all the effort to be more socially responsible and care for the environment they seem like a cheeky way of doing your part.

You can imagine my glee when I came across these small ones at Crate & Barrel for only $7.95! My husband and I now have them on our desks at work and a set in our guest room. Love!

Wouldn’t you know it, the day before I was planing on writing about Rebel Green the always wonderful Black Eiffel does an entire post! I’m still going to write about it because it’s just too good to pass up. With such great design and messaging there’s a lot to love! Here are a few of may favorites, I really love the illustration on their aesthetics and ethics page, and that produce bag is fantastic!

This is a cool new trend I’ve been noticing: Tape as a design element. I particularly love this because it’s both functional AND cool! Here is an wonderful example of incorporating the tape into a broader design. This is from a great Norwegian design frim called Heydays.
