Beefeater Burrough's Reserve

(5 years ago)
The brief was to create a concept to establish a new category of ultra-premium gin for Beefeater. Burrough’s Reserve had to be the pinnacle of the range, embodying heritage, craftsmanship and luxury. It needed to attract discerning, ‘free-thinking’ drinkers already engaged with other ultra-premium categories such as whisky and cognac. Launching in the on-trade, it had to exude status and credibility, while communicating its unique proposition on-shelf. "We developed the concept, name and packaging design, which is a metaphor for the gin’s unique production. The design references the copper still, oak barrels and hand-crafted way in which it is made. The overall impression is distinctive; balancing the gravitas and craft cues of dark spirits with the freshness of gin."

Museum of Math, NYC

(5 years ago)
We’ve been curious about the Museum of Math since we first heard it was in the works last year and opened Dec 2012, so we had to check it out while in NYC… as designers with a love of math (particularly as it applies to geometry, design, patterns, puzzles, and more), Shawn and I have been excited to see how the MoMath brought these concepts to life with interactive installations for kids! And as most of you know, my rule on NOTCOT has always been to share the things i LOVE that inspire me! But, as much as i hate breaking my own rule… we are SO disappointed! Sadly, the Yelp reviewers are right ~ It has SO much potential, but unfortunately i wouldn’t recommend it… yet? It’s been open nearly 6 months now and the majority of the interactive exhibits in the spacious two levels are either not-functioning, impressively unintuitive, or have taken quite the beating and don’t feel like you’re visiting a brand new museum. While it does have a 3D printer, laser cutter, badges that are supposed to sync with various exhibits to send you your creations later, an interactive floor, fractal video cameras to interact with, interactive kinect driven projections, and other digital setups, in the end the analog exhibits are more engaging. Ultimately the bike above is probably the most fun of all the working exhibits (but don’t forget to wear closed toe shoes, which i learned the hard way)… but that isn’t worth the price of[..]
