All About Tea

All About Tea

It feels like I’ve written way more about coffee than tea. I guess it has to do with that I hang around espresso bars more than tea places. But lets start this week with beautiful teas from tea wholesaler All About Tea. The packaging and identity was created by Moving Brands and I think they did a great job. I’m especially impress with the the thought that went into the logo. It has a simple yet wonderful playfulness and draws its inspiration from a tea ball or how a pile of tea looks.

The U.S. Constitution

The U.S. Constitution

I’ve got a feeling that most swedes know more about the U.S. Constitution than they do about our own constitution. A bit sad when you think about it but that doesn’t stop me from posting about the nice U.S. Constitution booklets from Scout Books. They are made in trendy Portland from recycled paper and printed with soy based ink. Maybe I should design some nice volumes of the Swedish constitution…

Aesop

Aesop

It’s not often that you come across a a company that has such a well thought-out identity as Australian Aesop. The identity is not just limited to the packaging but the clean and beautiful style can also be found in their boutiques. After the jump you’ll find examples of the boutiques (designed by March Studio) and some more packshots (designed in-house).

Visit Nordkyn

Visit Nordkyn

Norwegian brand agency Neue have created a nice identity for Visit Nordkyn, a site and campaign aimed at attracting tourists to the area called Nordkyn (or Cape Nordkinn). The area is the northernmost point of the European and Norwegian mainland and Neue have been inspired by that roughness of the landscape/climate and the logotype is like a mix between a stylized snowflake and a iceberg. I don’t know if the campaign is a success or not, but it sure looks good!

Purity Vodka

Purity Vodka

At Ellinge castle just outside Eslöv in Skåne you find Purity Vodka’s distillery. Purity Vodka is arguable one of the worlds best premium vodkas but it’t not well know in Sweden and I guess that is a price you pay when you’re made in the same country as Absolut Vodka. Just as Absolut (and all other vodkas?), Purity has a well designed bottle. Purity’s bottle was designed by Martin Lannering at Happy Forsman & Bodenfors. More photos of the ice block looking bottle after the jump.

Hanitape

Hanitape

Before Spotify, Napster and MP3s we had the massively failed format MiniDisc (and the successful CDs of course). And even before that there was something called tapes and tape decks. The younger readers might have seen them at some flee market but I remember when mix tapes was made and given away in hope of love. With this in mind I natural have to post about Haniboi’s silicon retro wallets Hanitape. The wallets comes in four colors and can be bought directly from Haniboi’s website.

The Nolitan Hotel

The Nolitan Hotel

The Nolitan Hotel gets its name from the New York neighborhood it’s situated in, Nolita (North of Little Italy). The hotel is the neighborhoods first luxury boutique hotel and as all boutique hotel should it has a well thought-out and beautiful and identity. Behind the identity we find the branding experts at Marque. And I think they have done a brilliant job giving The Nolitan Hotel a classic luxury look without making it feel dated. Lots of photos after the jump.
