Well done Woolworths


The new Woolworths Essentials range has been featured on the international “the dieline” website which is the worlds #1 package design website – click here to see the post!

The article features the new Essentials range which is the brainchild of internationally acclaimed designer Vince Frost, who was recently appointed as the companies Creative Director. Managing the execution of the Essentials range packaging is Quan Payne, a Design Director seconded from the Frost* studio in Sydney. He is working alongside the team based at the Frost designed in-house studio, at Woolworths HQ in Cape Town and a number of established local agencies.

According to Frost, the strategy behind the work is not only about contemporisation, but ensuring the packaging communicates the quality which defines the very essence of the Woolworths brand too.

 

Congrats to WW, for pioneering new ideas, both locally & internationally!

Love Jozi


So; did a little bit of exploring on the weekend and stumbled upon a little gem of a shop in ‘downtown’ Joburg. The featured Love Jozi store is the brainchild of Bradley Kirshenbaum who has established a minimalist style space situated in the creative  Arts on Main complex off Fox Street.

The shop features two main designers; being the Love Jozi CityBoyRange, stocking their range of authentic Joburg T-Shirts, along with their Skyline 2010 key racks – ranging in size and colour. These are great, and had to spoil myself to one – just couldn’t resist, see below for the black range; Skyline2010… The store also features some of the awesome, ever-trendy Black Coffee range. Definitely a must to check out!

LOCATION: Arts on Main, Corner Fox Street and Berea Road, Fairview.
