Surf Side of Baggu

(5 years ago)
It has been such an adventure watching our friends at Baggu grow and evolve from their colorful, reusable shopping bag roots to luxurious leathers, and now to more and more SURF inspired goodness! From their Surf Board Slings - now to the most adorable polka dotted Rack Pads… and a lustworthy, Wetsuit Bag, a black vinyl tote with welded seams and a water resistant zipper keep water contained! I suppose this evolution to surfing is no surprise with their San Diego roots (and their current NY surfing adventures!)… take a peek at the Surf goods on the next page, i can’t wait to see what they come up with next!TO PAGE 2 of "Surf Side of Baggu"! -----> (Want more visual goodness?

Soda & Swine + Polite Provisions

(5 years ago)
A spontaneous road trip came up yesterday which landed me at the brand new Soda & Swine is a meatball and soda spot and it’s alcoholic pharmacy of a sister, Polite Provisions that just popped up in Normal Heights in San Diego… being unexpected, this post is a cell phone peek into our experiences… lots of fun branding and signage… and it’s an interesting set up. You can only order meatballs and soda and soft serve and pie at Soda & Swine, but you can have it brought over to you at Polite Provisions… you can order cocktails, punch bowls, beer cocktails, cocktails on tap, wine, etc at Polite Provisions, but you can’t bring them to Soda & Swine. To go between the two - you go to the hallway of the bathrooms in Polite Provisions and through the doorway to pop out behind the fireplace in Soda & Swine, which is actually in a roofless area that feels like you’re in between buildings (just look up to notice the stars and moon shining brightly down on you amongst the heatlamps)… Interesting set up - cute spaces - tucked away in a quickly hipsterifying Normal Heights… it’s surrounded by bus stops, liquor store, dollar store and across from the Air Conditioned Lounge. And i can’t help but wonder if meatballs are the new sausage… Soda & Swine lets you pick the meatball style (smashed in a slider, 3 in a sub, on pasta, or 3 a la carte) then the flavor, cheese, and sauce. You must try the[..]

Behind the Design: Redesigning the Tazo Brand

(5 years ago)
An exclusive first look & interview about the rebranding, repositioning, and relaunch of Tazo. It all started when I saw first spotted the stark, stunning new Tazo packaging sitting on the shelf next to the suddenly old design. My first reaction was a bit of shock, in a delightful, surprising, and exciting way. It was not only a drastic change, but also a true leap forward into a new generation.  I have very fond memories of Tazo growing up; it was a breakthrough product of my generation. It is one of the brands that I credit for really getting me interested in package design as a possible career. Tazo first launched in the mid 90s with its mythical, Zen, new age, almost ethereal look, with Shamans and all. The brand really represented the times; it invoked a sense of humor and wit into the then boring tea category. It was a pure packaging story, and consumers fell in love with the brand. Tazo joined the Starbucks empire in 1999 as its leading tea brand. Fast forward to 2012, the Tazo brand had been barley changed since it first launched. After Starbucks finalized the redesign of the Starbucks brand itself, it was ready to take on Tazo. The challenge was to bring the brand into the 21st century, without loosing its soul. The task to update Tazo was given to an incredibly talented team of designers from Starbucks Global Creative, arguably one of Seattle’s best design firms. They are the in-house creative team behind Starbucks, Seattle’s Best Coffee,[..]
