Design studio Hey has worked with restaurant and brewery Caravelle on creating colourful packaging for its new range of craft beers. The Barcelona-based studio previously teamed up with Caravelle back in 2017 on its initial beer range, and was enlisted once again to help it flesh out the existing design system as the brewery relocates to a larger location to keep up with demand.
The packaging takes a geometric turn across the rest of the range, with a pixelated bit graphic applied to Galactic IPA and a colourful striped design showcasing the Electric Relaxation XPA.
Working with the Creative Director and in-house creative team at Moonpig, Ian Styles team have completely overhauled the brand. Most of the work was done with our team embedded directly within the creative department, which was crucial to understanding the culture, customers, and vision for the business.
Building on their new positioning our idea was a simple one; create a whole new world for Moonpig, one where we imagine that we live life on the moon, where the normal rules don’t apply.
We seek to capture people in our new world’s gravity, pulling them towards us for a moment, offering an escape, where boring is banished, the obvious avoided and where life, is more fun and lighthearted.

Who knew a take out bag could be a statement piece?

By Refining and articulating the brand story and messaging framework, the aim was to capture and communicate the brand’s personality, which had previously been disconnected in visuals and voice.
The design inspiration came from graphic landscapes that took inspiration from destinations in which Huxtaburger operates and the visual look of the ingredients they use. The characters that you’ll discover throughout the visual identity embody Huxtaburger’s brand positioning by portraying people doing extreme things. The typography/logotype design was a refresh of the existing logo, uniting past and present with added confidence and strength.

PHYX’s branding and visual identity, developed with help from agency FuseboxWest, are designed to appeal to the modern cannabis consumer who is more interested in cannabis’ effect on wellness, with a contemporary and luxe bottle design that is stylish and shows little sign of it being an infused drink. This gives the impression that Phyx is a premium bottled water.
“VOSS bottles have a distinctive shape with brand equity that consumers associate with higher quality than traditional water bottles,” says Dan Gardenswartz, Chief Financial Officer of Spherex. “By choosing a similar shape and look, we wanted to leverage the feelings of quality already associated with VOSS to show the consumer this product is different.”
“The product design is more similar to wellness-focused CPG than typical cannabis fare,” Dan adds. “We wanted the packaging to be unlike any other product a consumer would see in a cannabis dispensary. Whether it is just a single bottle or [it’s] one of our four-pack boxes, when PHYX is standing next to other cannabis-infused beverages, it stands out.”
In 1938, Bayer began to market the over-the-counter medication for relieving period discomfort, and Midol’s brand identity evolved along with women’s place in society. In recent years, however, the brand surmised that women were well aware of their products; it leads sales in its category, but after further analysis, they found that consumers didn’t know Midol’s values, nor could they recall the color of their packaging.
So, they knew it was time for a brand refresh.
Martha Seidner, design manager at Bayer’s American Pain and Cardio business, told Adweek that that research validated the decision to go ahead with a redesign.
The new look, crafted with help from design agency GoDutch and advertising shop Oliver, breathes modernity into the brand, ditching the old monochromatic approach with something bolder. A bright, yellow background ties together the Midol range of products, with a different saturated hue for each formulation. The new wordmark does away with serifs and both standout while also reflecting strength, something intended to be more reflective and appeal to millennials and Gen Z women.
Midol’s brand refresh comes as millennials approach and reaches its peak purchasing influence with Gen Z not far behind, bringing along different and evolving attitudes towards womanhood and women’s health.

What started as a design concept by Brazilian designer Walerson Oliveira has become a reality, as Mattel has made “UNO Minimialista” a physical thing you can now purchase.
