Puma’s Clever Little Bag

Puma collaborated with Ives Behar’s fuse project to design ‘the next’ sustainable shoebox. With the “clever little bag”, Puma kicks-off the next pivotal phase of its’ sustainability program.  The tens of millions of shoes shipped in the bag will reduce water, energy and diesel consumption on the manufacturing level alone by more than 60% per year. In other words: approximately 8,500 tons less paper consumed, 20 million Megajoules of electricity saved, 1 million liters less fuel oil used and 1 million liters of water conserved. During transport 500,000 liters of diesel is saved and lastly, by replacing traditional shopping bags the difference in weight will save almost 275 tons of plastic.
Good concept, nice design! It’s always good to re-think the way we make things. And the next step would be if the bag could be the source for a new product.

dBOD #1 packaging design agency 2009

dBOD nr1-3

It’s official: dBOD is the #1 packaging design agency of the Netherlands!

In the tough price-fighting market that packaging design seemed to have become, dBOD stood out with quality, service and reliability. According to Marketing Tribune dBOD scores highest in all categories. Dedato was the best corporate design agency. See the facts here (sorry, only in Dutch)

Like the visual? Its made by yours truly ;-)

Fashionable packaging design #2

Every now and than champagne brand Piper collaborates with a fashion designer to create a limited edition bottle. Last year it was the ‘up-side-down’ bottle of Victor and Rolf (see the earlier post on this blog). This year it’s shoe designer Christian Louboutin. The bottle comes with a glass shoe. Drinking champagne from a woman’s shoe is a ritual that dates back to the 18th century. Now you have the opportunity to relive these times. Nice decadent concept in the financial hard times.

D&AD design award voor Coca Cola

De restyling van Coca Cola heeft een D&DA design award opgeleverd voor Coca Cola en het designbureau Turner Duckworth. En terecht, zou ik willen zeggen. Het is Coca Cola gelukt met deze restyling de essentie van het merk te pakken en heeft de durf gehad het heel ‘schoon’, elementair en iconisch vorm te (laten) geven.
