The Tilt Effect

What makes the Tilt It, the watering can stand out is its diagonal base. This kind of orientation makes it easier to pour out the water with less lifting. Essentially a lot of wrist work is required and pouring out the last of the water from a traditional flat-bottomed watering can cause a strain. Hit the jump for the details.

  • Pouring from a traditional can requires the user the lift and tilt it to ninety degrees. There is a need to lift one’s arm quite high and bend the wrists considerably.
  • Tilt It, on the other hand, has a ‘diagonal’ base.
  • When Tilt It is held ‘vertically’ by its top handle, the water inside naturally flows to the lowest point of the diagonal, near the base of the spout.
  • This means that less tilting is required by the gardener in order to pour the water out. One needn’t lift their arms so high.
  • When Tilt It is placed on the floor, its diagonal base causes it to tilt backwards. The top handle sits at an angle, which allows it to be grasped more comfortably.

Tilt It is a 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept Winner.

Designers: Choi Hyunchul, Prof. Doh Han Young & Kim SooHwan

Designed by Device Creative Collaborative | Country: United States

“Inspired by the Appalachian legend of 19th century moonshiner Buck O’Hairen, Sunshine is a delightfully crisp, lightly carbonated pick-me-up with electrolytes, vitamin B12, natural ginger and flavors of blackberry.

The design harkens back to the hand lettering of the late 1800′s and the boom of medicine show culture throughout the US.”

Farnham Ale & Lager Brewery

Designed by lg2boutique | Country: Canada

“The Farnham Ale & Lager Brewery is a new company that has just made a splash in the world of Quebec Beers. The brewer, located in the village of the same name, called on lg2boutique to design a brand platform that reflected its product, develop a graphic identity, design packaging and the total identity of the platform.

The branding of Farnham Ale & Lager positions this new Quebec brewer as an innovative brand that stands out in its category because of its taste and because of its look.

All of the graphic elements were chosen to highlight the beer’s origin, which was this Eastern Townships railway town. The four flavours stand out with their strong colour codes, their degrees of bitterness are indicated by 12, 27, 33 and 64, highlighted numbers, and the diagonal cross symbolizes a railway crossing.

The platform contains packaging, promotional clothing, caps, glasses and coasters.”

For The Sake Of Painters

I don’t paint and have never used a paint can in my life. But that doesn’t mean innovation for paint cans should stop. In fact this Easy Ring design can be used for any standard can. Physics, pressure techniques and a lot of clever thinking makes this a very intriguing design. What do you think?

Designed by mousegraphics | Country: Greece

“The briefing (In brief):  We need to redesign our brand in order to reach a wider contemporary audience.

The target consumer: Various ages, mostly young and middle age consumers of both sexes, especially men.

The design: A case of redesigning visual identity, this was a challenge that we approached by analyzing carefully all the elements of the existing logo and its context. We decided to keep and rearrange them in a meaningful way: the emblem (a coat of arms with 2 lions) was separated from the brand name, the overall design became more clear and linear, a frame based message was introduced. This evolved like a scrabble game with visual elements in the place of letters.”

Crushed Bottle Opener

What looks like a badly crushed can is actually a sturdy metal bottle opener to pop open all your non-crushable drink bottles.

Get it here.


October 03 2013



The flip-top soda can has remained unchanged for decades, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t improvements to be made! The iCan explores new solutions for spilling prevention, keeping carbonation fresh and eliminating harmful bacteria with an aluminum twist top that uses a similar amount of material as the classic tab. Gotta see the vid to see how it works!

Polevskaya Varnya

Designed by Red Pepper | Country: Russia

“Beer package concepts are usually very beautiful.

But in reality, the Russian’s law demands placing a lot of additional mandatory information on the bottle. And this becomes a problem, because sometimes this information occupies more than 50% of label space.

Looking on the brewery’s logo in a shape of a tree, we have chosen direction of eco-labels and used the texture of tree bark and felling. We embedded all mandatory information about consist and limitations to the natural wood texture, saving the visual harmony and purity of idea.

100% of mandatory information shown. 100% of idea saved. 100% not fake and already in stores.”

Dust Cutter Beverage Co.

Designed by Cultivator Advertising & Design | Country: United States

“This month, Dust Cutter Beverage Co., Jackson Hole, Wy., launches its first product line, three varieties of all-natural, western-style lemonade, available in western state test markets and online. Package design (as well as the branding and advertising) is by Cultivator Advertising & Design, Denver, their first work for the new client.

Dust Cutter  is packaged in fast-cooling, 16 oz., reclosable aluminum (“Alumi-Tek”) bottles, and comes in Original, Huckleberry, and Iced Tea varieties, retailing online for $20 per 12-pack. Its all-natural ingredients include ginseng and Vitamin B. Dust Cutter is made from the company founder, Eric Green’s family recipe, served up for generations to parched guests at the Warm Springs Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.”

“Dust Cutter’s brand personifier is the Lemon Cowboy, a hard-ridin’ dude atop a bucking lemon, who appears in poster form (11” x 18”) at points-of-purchase including natural grocers, convenience stores, and select QSRs and bars (Dust Cutter is a great mixer). It also runs outdoor, on delivery truck sides.

Dust Cutter is distributed by Carlson Distributing, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Creative credits go to Cultivator package designer Monte Mead, creative director/copywriter Tim Abare, and designer Jeremy Pruitt. The Lemon Cowboy illustrator is Jeff Foster, of Lake Oswego, Ore.”

Austin Beerworks IPA

Designed by Helms Workshop | Country: United States

“Working with Austin Beerworks to name and package their new IPA series posed a few unique challenges.

The brewery planned to produce a different IPA every two months, ranging from traditional to experimental IPAs, and to distribute them as a limited-release series throughout the year. With each beer release being smaller than the minimum run of cans, we needed to design a single packaging solution and naming convention that could be used for all eight IPAs.”

“As part of our packaging exploration and naming exercises, we shifted our approach and asked questions from different points of view. Two of those questions were “what are we absolutely required to include on the can?” and, “what is it important for consumers know about these beers?” The answers became the drivers for our packaging solution.

Every can of beer sold in the US must feature the official government warning. It’s traditionally hidden away. But what would packaging look like if the government warning was just the beginning of the conversation? The answer is Heavy Machinery Seasonal IPA Series.”

“The packaging leads with the official government warning, front and center. That text is followed by a playful list of everything else the brewery suggests beer drinkers avoid while enjoying these IPAs, including eyebrow tweezers, twitter and any machine that can juice a carrot.

The cans are paired with a four-pack box that clearly denotes the IPA style, and can be produced in small print runs for each release. The unexpected package inside creates an entertaining, memorable experience for beer drinkers and keeps the IPA series front of mind as the copy changes over time.”

Boris Cubana Libre

Designed by lg2boutique | Country: Canada

“lg2boutique has created the packaging for the fifth line in the range of Boris products. On the shelf you now can find the refreshingly new Boris Cuba Libre. This drink that contains alcohol is available in a 500ml format and tastes like a Caribbean cola that tantalizes with its Cuban flavour. lg2boutique was inspired by some rather strong Caribbean icons, presented within their Latin culture. We can see these references in the phrases “carro Americano”, “la Estrella Solitaria” and the recognizable “habano”, all of which contribute to Cuba’s reputation.”

Boris Ice Tea

Designed by lg2boutique | Country: Canada

“Much to the delight of their growing fan base, Boris has introduced a new line of products to the market. As a pioneer in malt-based beverages, the Quebec company has been selling a refreshing selection of alcoholic iced teas since the beginning of summer. lg2boutique, the agency behind the Boris brand since the beginning, rolled up their collective sleeves and got down to the task of creating a memorable identity for this great new product.”

“As always, it was important for us to make sure Boris Ice Tea would stand out on the shelves. Alcohol ice tea is an exciting new niche in the Quebec market, and we knew that some American brands were going to jump on the bandwagon. With that in mind, we wanted to create a concept that was going to distance itself from what the others might do and develop a look that consumers would associate with the Boris brand,” says Claude Auchu, vice-president, creative director, design.”

“Every flavour has a unique personality that is reflected in the packaging for this new family of alcoholic iced teas by Boris. The first one, lemon, is reminiscent of an eccentric character from England with a classic look, inspired by tea. The second, peach, highlights the feminine side and features a woman with flowing locks to remind us of the fuzz on the fruit. Each package is rendered in a fluorescent colour palette based on the attributes of each fruit.”

Campbell's Soup Releases Warhol Special Edition Cans

Campbell's Soup has released a series of limited-edition, Andy Warhol-inspired soup cans, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first time the artist used one of the cans in his art.

Warhol famously featured Campbell's' red and white soup cans in a number of his paintings and screenprints from 1962 onwards, and he apparently was a regular consumer of the condensed soup inside the cans too, once commenting that he had eaten it for lunch every day for 20 years.

The cans also represented his interest in the imagery that he saw every day, which also led him to reproduce Coca-Cola bottles and Brillo boxes in his work. The special edition Campbell's cans aren't exact replicas of Warhol's work, though reference the bright colours he introduced in his 1965 series featuring the cans.

The series will be on sale at Target in the US, with 1.2 million cans released, at 75 cents each (unsurprisingly though, cans have already begun springing up on eBay for considerably more).

Designed by Stockholm Design Lab | Country: Sweden

2012 Cannes Gold Lion winner.

“IKEA is a worldwide Swedish home furnishing company with 28 distribution centres and a global network of 267 stores attracting a total of 590 million visitors.

Stockholm Design Lab created a design and packaging concept when the company combined its various food and catering units under the IKEA brand. The aim of the Swedish Food Market is to enhance the Swedish identity of IKEA.”

“The range of products is aimed at attracting food lovers who are interested and curious about different food cultures and eating habits, particularly Swedish ones. The packaging should therefore provoke interest in the products as well as present the food in a clear, honest and appetizing way. The products should always express the key values: reliability, quality and Swedishness.”
