BP&O Collections — Block Foiling

Selected by Richard Baird.

Block Foiling Gallery & Inspiration — BP&O Collections

A continually updated gallery of graphic identity and packaging design work, reviewed and published on BP&O, that utilise foil blocking. These include solid, clear and multi-coloured foils, and those that feature micro-structures or sculpted details. This post features work by Studio South, Triboro and Bedow, and covers a variety of projects, from property developments and artists to restaurants and coffee subscription services.

The work below explores the intersection of the graphic and surface, the striking and the subtle. They move between a simple aesthetic pleasure in conjunction with materials, interesting ideas, a continuity of concept and communicative intention. These all serve to maintain a sense of quality, where ubiquity of finish seeks to undermine. Also check out Blind Embossing and Die Cutting.

BP&O Collections — Wine

Selected by Richard Baird.

The Very Best in Wine Branding and Packaging

A continually updated gallery that takes a look at the visual, material and structural language of the wine industry, populated by projects reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by Inhouse, Mucho and Frost, and covers small and large wineries and their labels, wine events, wine bars and shops. These take a variety of approaches, from the illustrative to the typographic, the abstract to the literal, and between them play with a sense of provenance and terrior, winery legacy and individual family histories. Stylistically and conceptually, these move between the modern and singular in concept, to those that utilise traditional motifs and enduring finishes. Be sure to click the images to read more about the project and the intentions of each design.
