Surface Tablet and Accessories Featuring Windows 8

(5 years ago)
"Packaging for Surface Tablet and Accessories featuring Windows 8 Creating a new brand of hardware, Surface was our opportunity to show the magic and experience of Windows 8. Previously, Microsoft had never manufactured computers or computing devices. The product and the packaging system were designed for customers intending to purchase a new tablet with Windows 8. It was critical to establish this new brand and communicate the quality, value and simplicity of the product. It involved developing packaging for an entire new brand and several products within including the Surface device, Keyboards/Covers and additional Accessories (AV Cables, Power Supplies) to support the complete line of products."

National Geographic Rebranding

(5 years ago)
Great rebranding of National Geographic, with a bit of new DVD and book packaging: "Branding and identity design is probably one of the most challenging fields in the creative industry. Developing a powerful and dynamic identity is an essential step towards the success of the brand. Moreover, as technology advances and due to the changing perception and needs of the public, some of the most established brands in history have undergone different stages of evolution in terms of branding and identity. Rebranding an iconic company who has established a strong image for so many years is a great challenge for designers of today’s generation. This opportunity was explored by Columbus-based graphic designer Justin Marimon who worked on an interesting project about re-conceptualizing a brand image of a large corporation along with its existing branding assets and products. Justin chose to rebrand National Geographic, one of the leading nature, science and history publishing companies which have established an iconic brand image for more than a century."

R&B Brewing

(5 years ago)
"R&B Brewing is one of Vancouver's original East Van micro breweries, predating the current trend by almost two decades. Partners Rick ("R") and Barry ("B") asked St. Bernadine to help with a packaging redesign, initiated by the move from 650mL bottles to a standard 341mL 6-pack format. The design language is inspired by R&B's resolutely hand crafted product – as such, every element on the packaging is rendered by hand, including the bar code. Bold silhouette key illustrations take their cues from the beers' quirky naming conventions, and strong colours aid standout and shelf blocking. Key brand story elements, hand rendered in expressive type, and additional varietal information, like IBU scale, boil information, aging temperature, hop and barley type and mix all support R&B's independent, craft positioning."
