Flipbook animation stickers on plastic tea bottles. Clever way to get people to 'collect the set':

Would you like orange or pear scented paper towels?

Since there's water splashing on both sets of fruits, does that mean those paper towels are as absorbent as oranges and pears? Because if they are...

Great topic.

It's always good to look at Cereal boxes for packaging reference, but they just never appeal to me. I understand that on the lower shelves they want to attract the kids' attention and trigger recognition of the brand, product, and mascot, but also on the higher shelves the packaging is always just so, generic. Except maybe the Dorset cereals:

I also liked this packaging in terms of style, it has that nano-technology feel to it.

A previous comment mentioned what Art Directors and Creative Directors do. I think their main purpose is to oversee the process and make sure that the intended vision is infused into the designs. But yeah, most of the time in my experience these people spend too much time walking around, socializing, drinking espressos, and other ways of looking important :)

I was wondering what the difference is between an Art and a Creative Director, isn't it exactly the same but maybe in slightly different contexts?

And for some reason this has remained one of my favorite bottle designs, for Ipsei by Barber & Osgerby. It is minimal without being boring, it is friendly yet cool. I just want it when I see it. Except the drink tastes like nothing.

@ralphzoontjens: Good picks! I didn't know about that Ipsei bottle before, too bad the drink isn't too great. ;)

Have you seen this by L'oreal (360 Clean face scrub bottle)? The bottle is like a donut, and the silicone scrubber fits in. Pretty out there in a good way.

Branding is the most important aspect of a product as people recognize any particular item through its brand. It is the first impression that customers get and will remember by. I am attracted by the Kleenex creative way of branding. Even though those are just storage boxes, the management has decided to portray them innovatively to let the idea etch in people’s minds. It will definitely make an impact and make people remember their branding more easily.
