    Cornohora Balsam, Coka Cola and caravan are my favorites out of this collection. I love Coka Cola’s corporate identity it has hardly changed since it was created in 1886. Its a testament to good design and marketing.

    I love the Saxon bottles, they are really unusual compared to the usual cider packaging style. Elegant and light, It’s usually dangerous to go against the norm but in this case, it works. I know some of these are mock ups but it’s a shame we only get to see such typography in upmarket supermarkets. We need to get some of these in Tesco!

    As a designer and lover of type I have to say, “you have a typo.” The headline name above the Saxton Pear cider packaging is missing the “t.” Should read “Saxton” not “Saxon.”
    Nice examples of good design!

    Love the designs, so much can be done with Type! Especially with a limited space like a label. Great examples.

    All of these are beautiful examples of packaging and typography! It’s very refreshing to read/view a blog that draws inspiration from different media to improve web design practice, especially since typography is such an important part of the success of both of these mediums. Though I guess it’s hard not to appreciate good typography on amazingly designed packaging!

    Though this collection took awhile to catch up with me, and as a lover of design and typography, I believe there could be another “typo” for Garobol. When looking closely at the bottle, the letters are G O R O B E L, Not G A as in the headline. Still great to see brilliant minds at work! Elizabeth

    Typography on bottles is more challenging than on paper. Great collection, very inspiring!
