Alex Carro Packaging

Hey folks, it’s been a while. Life got in the way, but I’m back from hibernation and I will try to post more frequently.

This work designed by Malva Sawada and creative directed by Andrew Trotter is what got me out of my slumber. It’s a super minimal packaging design for Barcelona based skincare brand, Alex Carro. The minimal design was also applied to the website, which is also wonderful.

RAMS: A Documentary About Dieter Rams

Gary Hustwit, the director of the documentaries Helvetica, Objectified, and Urbanized, is directing the first feature-length documentary about the life of legendary product designer, Dieter Rams. He has put together a Kickstarter to fund the rest of the filming and production. The backer rewards are great, including posters designed by Michael C. Place of Build. This is a great project that will preserve Rams’ life and work. I’ve backed it.

The documentary will include in-depth conversations with Dieter, and detail the process behind some of his most iconic designs. We want to get past the legend of Dieter, and get into his philosophy, process, inspirations, and even his regrets.
