New Work: Ruiz + Company

Ruiz + Company

I’ve writ­ten a few times about the great work com­ing out of Ruiz + Com­pany. They now have a new web­site, and a bunch of new work to show.

Comedown Machine Cover Design

the-strokes_comedown-machine-1

I’m not into The Strokes, but I am into the cover design of their lat­est album, Come­down Machine. It was designed by Brett Kil­roe and Tina Ibañez of Run­ner Col­lec­tive, and the min­i­mal, dis­tressed design is a trib­ute to an old RCA pack­age design for their record­ing tape. Looks like it was a fun project to work on.

BVD recently updated their site with some great new work, one of which is this beau­ti­ful 7-Eleven brand­ing. Unfor­tu­nately for us US folks, it looks like it’s just for the Euro­pean mar­ket. We have to set­tle for this crap.

Art of the Arcade

Art of the Arcade

Keep­ing with this weeks theme of clas­sic design, here’s a great site called Art of the Arcade by Nick Dart that show­cases the lost video game designs and illus­tra­tions from the 70s and 80s. Hope­fully it gets updated more frequently.

Minimal Diet Coke Packaging

Minimal Diet Coke Packaging

Diet Coke has announced that they’re per­ma­nently chang­ing the pack­ag­ing of the Diet Coke cans to this beau­ti­ful, min­i­mal and bold design cre­ated by Turner Duck­worth. The crop­ping and scal­ing of the logo cre­ates some inter­est­ing white space, and I this design will def­i­nitely stand out on the shelves. Diet Coke has reported that the new look is per­form­ing really well. More at Cre­ative Review.

Nostalgi Packaging

Nostalgi Packaging

Beau­ti­ful pack­ag­ing design by Bedow for the Nos­talgi rack designed in 1937 by Gun­nar Bolin.

Lark Cigarette Packaging

Love this pack­ag­ing design cre­ated in 1968 by George Tsch­erny for Lark. A great design for a ter­ri­ble product.

Fruita Blanch

Fruita Blanch

Beau­ti­ful pack­ag­ing and iden­tity design by Ati­pus for Fruita Blanch. Great color and typog­ra­phy give the iden­tity a cer­tain character.

Ducats Milk Packaging

Ducats Milk Packaging

I agree with Shelby, I’d pay good money to get my hands on these Ducats milk car­tons designed by Heinz Grun­wald in the 80s. They’re beau­ti­ful and func­tional. These are also a reminder of how bad design can get nowa­days. It’s our respon­si­bil­ity as design­ers to push graphic design back to this type of think­ing. Sim­ple, smart, beautiful.

Vintage Beer Cans

Vintage Beer Cans

Here’s some more vin­tage good­ness. I found this excel­lent Flickr set of vin­tage beer cans. I’ve never seen that odd can shape, looks like motor oil. Love it. There are also a few brand-less cans with only “Light Beer” printed on them which are really nice.

Vintage Oil Cans

Vintage Oil Cans

I’m really dig­ging these vin­tage oil can designs by Antrepo to show­case their type­face, Pub­lic Gothic. It makes you won­der what the hell hap­pened to our soci­ety that made us go from nice pack­ag­ing design like this, to this.
