Hello

October 23, 2015 Leave a comment

Heard Adele’s new song and was blown away. So happy to hear a new  song that focuses on lyrics and instrumental high lights,. I looked up the music video and loved the black and white. It was simple but the imagery was so meaningful. The black and white helps the viewer to focus on the video. It really gets one to think about the relationships in life.

A second look at the second picture

Had seen this wine, Skulls, in the store from a far but wasn’t sure of the label design. When I first saw it I noticed the man hanging in between the two trees. I never turned the bottle around to see the name. After a few times of it catching my eye I noticed the skull AND then I turned the bottle around.

Then it made sense.  I really like the optical illusion. It’s really creative but most of all its an amazing illustration. I like the attention to details of the textures that define the figures of the illustration. It’s a light handed drawing with a fluidity. It not like the cartoon or photo that some
labels have.

On the Red Carpet.

January 8, 2015 Leave a comment

I love seeing black and white on the red carpet. Some of these looks are so classy and sheik and then there are the modern and abstract looks. It seems that it really  depends on how the color is used and applied – it really doesn’t set a time or date on it. I guess with the neon colors or prints one might get the 60’s, 70’s or futuristic vibe or  the 20’s or 30’s with the muted earth tones and then 80’s and 90’s with the primary colors ….. Black and white, it is timeless.

Simple, subtle and straight to the point

September 4, 2014 Leave a comment

Came across this ad. It is a simple ad with text with a picture of a wine bottle. But the small details help the overall picture.  The body text for the ad really complements the text that is used on the wine label but the playful use of a the secondary text / tag line in the shadow plays up the ad. The viewer is forced to take a second look at the so called everyday wine ad that is seen regularly. Some might miss it but it a simple way to play on the dark theme and concept of the wine.

Symmetrical but not

August 9, 2014 Leave a comment

Went  for a wine tasting!  If you are ever in Virginia Beach, please check our Grape & Gourmet. I had tasted this Sparking wine. It was an semisweet wine with a fresh finish.  I really like the box design. It is a simple shilouette with a symmetrical design.  It is not an obvious symmetrical design but the use of balance is very successful for this layout.

Scout

Came across this brand  (Scout) while looking for a travel tote. I noticed the tag first, what a surprise! But the classy and simple logo gave the brand and product  a high end perception but not over priced, I think the dog line drawing helps tone down the posh look. The simplicity and clarity help keep it easy to read and memorable.
