“Poilu”(French: hairy) is a set of creative packaging concepts for paintbrush designed by French-Canadian artist Simon Laliberte. The idea behind the packaging is to help sell paintbrushes and protects them during shipping. By combining two brushes inside the face packaging, Simon successfully produced a family of amusing bewhiskered folk.
Vegetabrella, a combination of the two words “vegetable” and “umbrella”, well speak for itself that it is an umbrella that looks like the head of a romaine lettuce. Invested in Japan, the country is always good for a surprise. When closed it has a very realistic resemblance to a romaine salad head. When opened it becomes a normal umbrella in light green and yellow shades. The ribbon to keep it closed reminds those found on salads in Japanese supermarkets, same as the carton box holds it. Designed by Yurie Mano, each Vegetabrella is hand made by Tokyo Noble – a family owned company that specializes on the production of high quality hand made umbrellas. Would you like to have such a lettuce looking umbrella in your bag? [source]
Moscow-based designer and illustrator Andrew Gorkovenko created a series of incredible tea illustration, as part of a series of packaging designs for Triptea. Andrew uses the tea contained within each box to create those scenery, which illustrates the origins of tea – the Great Wall of China and a detailed pagoda for green tea, a picturesque Ceylon landscape for black tea, etc. Such a rich imagination and great skills to use the product itself to create concept illustrations for its packaging. As a package design, it is really well done! [source]
