Packaging

Cocoa Jones

Supple Studio

Cocoa Jones is a new family-run chocolate company. Founded by husband and wife team Naz Khan and Michael Ogazi, the branding and packaging builds on the couple’s heritage (Pakistani for Naz and Nigerian for Michael) and brings together their two cultures on the pack, uniting two patterns – one Islamic and one African. A lovely, simple idea to bring out the story.

Vivevive

Content form context

CFC has developed an elegant packaging range for underwear brand Vivevive. Simple and expressive illustrations are used to great effect, creating striking and unpretentious expressions of the products and the bodies that wear them.

The Daddy Long Legs is an extremely rare and special fortified wine, making it one of Australia’s most expensive fortifieds. Its production is limited to the contents of only two remaining barrels set aside for over 40 years, making its quantity limited and its quality exceptional. The barrel shed that housed the wine is inhabited by hundreds of ‘Daddy Long Leg’ spiders who have kept a watchful eye over these barrels for decades. Incredible idea and next level production by Voice Design.

Last weekend saw Canberra host the 2017 AGDA Awards. While there was a selection of well-deserved wins for some incredible work there was also, in my opinion, a stack of amazing work that was not recognised. Here’s a small selection of work that didn’t win and left me scratching my head. Vista by Voice Design, Dasher + Fisher by Co-Partnership, Bare Witness by RE, Shortys by The Colour Club, Shop Around by Toko and D’Angelo Coffee by Band.
