Creative Packaging:
Mandarin oranges have always had a symbolic presence during Chinese New Year. Phonetically, they mean ‘gold’, and since 2011 was the Year of the Rabbit, the oranges were packaged into a shape that looked like carrots – to signify a golden harvest for the year. These were given to existing and potential clients to wish them a successful and profitable Year of the Rabbit.



Beautiful Barcode Designs That Will Make Packaging More Fun

Designed by Japanese design firm D-Barcode, these simplistic, yet beautiful barcodes will certainly make packaging more eye-catching and fun. 

Instead of the usual black-and-white lines, the firm turns the stripes into playful works of art like a cascading waterfall, a cityscape and streaks of falling rain.

Brendan Monroe

Currently I live and work in Oakland, California with my wife Evah and our cat Jalapeño. Once in a while I take on illustration commissions, but most of the time I paint and sculpt for exhibitions. I think it’s important to constantly challenge oneself with new ideas and new mediums. My interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. These are the best ways for me to communicate, but I always enjoy making other things as well.
