Here are some neat packaging designs featuring illustrations by UK artist Ben Javens for 8th Continent Soy Milk. I like how the packaging is friendly and stylish, without compromising on readability and flavor distinctions. It definitely strikes a good balance. (I’m not sure who did the actual packaging layouts, but if you know, please share it with us in the comments.)

“Think of these adorable Fridgeezoo animals as a smaller version of your parents, sitting inside your fridge, reminding you to close the door if you spend too much time window shopping for something to eat. As you can see they’re all themed after animals that live in cold climates like a polar bear, penguin, walrus and seal, and while they start out with a friendly greeting when you open the door, if you linger for too long letting out too much cold air they’ll soon get snappy about your apathy towards eco-friendliness.”

The lamp you see here is called Re3. It stands for reduce, reuse, redesign. It is made out of CDs, which is one of the biggest wastes in landfills. People nowadays purchase their music and movies straight from the internet into their portable player. A mass amount of CDs are no longer used and has been thrown away. So, this lamp would help reduce the CD waste all over the world. Despite the lamp’s environmental aspect, it is designed with a modern look and feel. The light coming out of it has a rainbow-like effect. 20% of the purchase will be donated to Green House Association.
“Slurk (sip in Danish) is a Copenhagen juice and coffee shop. Based on freshly squeezed juice and roasted coffee Slurk delivers healthy and tasty drinks to people on the go. The simple concept of using ecological and high quality products in order to give the customer a better and healthier alternative than the larger chains, needed to be communicated through the visual identity.”
“Together with a bold and characteristic use of typography and colour the identity is based around the simple yet strong “S” symbolizing the idea of a fruit being peeled.”

Do you know that all the landfills in the world might be full by 2010? If that happens then where will all the billion tons of garbage each day go? Also do you know that 50% of landfill consists of paper?
People nowadays often use paper in whatever ways that make their life most convenient, regardless of the effects to the environment. Therefore, this book is design to educate the public about the cause and effect of paper consumption and also to encourage them to think before throwing a piece
of paper away next time. Inside this book, there are many solutions which can help an individual make a difference recycling paper.
In terms of design, the book has more of a mass production finish with all of the registration marks still visible as if it is being rushed to the production line without the thought of conservation. The color pallet started with a muddy green and progressed to a fresh green toward the solution part at the end of the book. Also, to promote recycling this book is printed on recycled paper stock.
