Design Love: For the Love of Pinterest


Hellooooo Inspirations…

Today, I would like to offer you all an insight to my favorite designs on Pinterest; because, well, there are just some great finds on the site and it’s only right to share! When a client ask you for something extraordinary, great designers know that you start by getting inspired. Some visit their favorites – the gurus of design in their eyes. Others rummage through the internet and google images looking for ideas. Yet I prefer Pinterest, where I am able to find some of the most useful, modern, and inspiring pieces of art from all over the internet-world.

Ps. If you don’t use Pinterest yet, get to it! It’s a virtual pinboard for all things wonderful. Plus, it’s turning into a major marketing tool; but I’ll get into that some other time. For now, please enjoy these gorgeous designs (click them and you’ll go to the single post) and check out my Pinterest page for more fun pinboards.

Simplicity is key in great design; so is the use of an accent color!

Free fonts downloads, with a fun-font-filled promo image

I don’t know about you, but golden yellow makes me smile

I truly appreciate the minimalist branding of “filthy”

Hand-written type is pure gold in a world of overdone fonts

Don’t be square – patterns serve as design inspirations as well

Designs aren’t just 2D… Plus, mustaches are a great party accessory

Type may also turn into an image. Simple yet classic, and on point

Chalk type: another beautiful, and impermanent, art medium

Brown paper bag and hot magenta branding. This screams original!

Design Love: Beautiful Package Designs


Gosh, I love packaging design. I really do. I mean, what is there not to love? Plus it’s one of the most important – if not THE most important – parts of marketing a product. Because we all know, if something doesn’t look attractive, then we most likely won’t grab it from the store shelf. And that’s the truth! Keep that in mind. When selling a product (or even a service) it’s all about presentation and appearances. I suggest you follow “The Cool Rule” (yes, I just made up that title) and that is that: “Even if you have the coolest business idea ever, but you’re branding isn’t cool, then people won’t think it’s cool and might never actually buy it.” Like that rule? I hope so, because that as well is the truth! Ok, enough silly – but true – talk. Let the inspiration begin. Here are 10 of my favorites from the top 50. See all 50 via the link at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!

Simply Bliss: sleek & minimal, but still lets the consumer know exactly what they are getting at the first glance. In my eyes, this is design-perfection!

Waitrose: breaking away from the conventional “paper” label, this is a great way to show the contents of the item while still keeping the design fresh.

12 Inches: who says there’s a right way to wrap a bottle? this style is eye-catching and the typography is fabulous!

Font Vella: clear and blue, showcasing the pureness of the water, while delicately designed with an almost paisley feel. It works very well together.

Absolut: a big name brand with clean-cut style. Never shifting from their branding techniques, yet always coming up with a new engaging look.

Coca-Cola: another brand giant, with simple taste. This summer collection stands them apart from other soda’s on the shelf, and it’s easy to see why.

Citro: little mints in little packages with a little window. With minimal yet matching colors and attention to the “flavor,” I believe they nailed it.

Project 7 (Water Bottles): hand-written type is amazing, and the way it’s executed here is exactly right. Simple but fun, showing each bottle’s meaning.

Project 7 (Snacks): continuing the hand-written feel, but incorporating more color and heavy text; but they still get you to focus on the important headlines.

Oats: Sweet and sleek design that just feels right for bath soaps. It gives off the vibe of warm but still modern and new. A perfect mix!
