No Boats on Sunday

This homegrown Canadian cider made with all natural apples has taken huge strides in the marketplace. Now with an updated colour-infused, upright boat shaped display, you can put your Oars Up and grab a bottle or two stacked within. The change from white to navy blue has increased the visual appeal of this display, lending to a more crisp and clean look.

Belgium, Netherlands.

An enlightening experience

While doing my internship at Proprint Sevices, I was invited to attend the Esko 3rd annual Flexographic Packaging honours course in Ghent, Belgium. The course lasted 2 weeks and provided me with the opportunity to learn and explore Esko’s latest and greatest software, as well as experience the small city of Ghent and all it has to offer. With a population of around 260 000 people, the city of Ghent has a lot of history and was once the largest and richest city in all of Europe. The gothic architecture, beautiful cobblestone roads, bike lanes and delicious food are just some of the draws this wonderful city has to offer. The Belgian waffles, chocolate as well as the homemade jenever served at Dreupelkot were some of my favourites!

Real Banana Milk – Concept Packaging

By Dongwook Yoon

This packaging concept caught our attention today. Not just because of it’s simple approach but also for it’s clear communication.

For those who enjoy the flavour of banana, I imagine the act of opening the packaging must enhance the experience. This solution is imaginative and does with ease what most modern retail packaging has difficulty with: Conveying the contents with clarity.

Nicely done:
