Environmental Graphic Design

A fascinating area of the Jaguar Land Rover Cary car dealership is this “Adventure Centre.” The area serves as a guest lounge, featuring marketing ads, a digital display, and modern interior design elements. Overall, due to some interior design changes, the area today sticks out in an awkward, unused fashion (see wide-view photo below for…

Master Gao Baby IPA

I love collecting beer bottles, and I found the one from “Master Gao Baby IPA” to be especially interesting and unique. The overall design of the bottle is quite lucid and structured, and you could receive the most practical information about the product from the front. The baby image, however, is weird at first: Almost…

Amazon Packaging

Amazon, the worldwide shipping giant, has mastered the art of branding and advertising a huge majority of their company on all of the products. Being a company that ships millions of packages every day, they have started to put their ‘Prime’ logo on everything. For smaller packages, like the one I included above, the logo…

Wild Design: Cigar Box

Above is a cigar box that I use to hold all my change in. What I like about this box in particular (as I have 3, all were purchased empty and were just the boxes) is the gold leaves that surround the name. I also like how much of that design takes up the box…

“A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships” Vinyl

As vinyls make a comeback in popularity, it seems as though artists are taking every chance the have to set theirs apart from others. It is because of this that we now have so many interesting designs from cover, to the inside, to the vinyl itself. For the band The 1975, aesthetic is essentially part…

Kimoto Junmai Sake Packaging Design

To me, the design of this bottle is both pleasing and a bit odd. Let’s begin with the bad, I find the contrast between a matte, black bottle with pastel green to be a bit disconcerting, the matte black bottle feels like it should be paired with a more simplistic, minimalist design that uses less…

NC State’s Healthy Measures

Today walking back from Talley Student Union to my apartment, I was on the lookout for possible objects or things that I could write about for this “Wild Design” assignment. I saw some things that caught my eye but then I walked past a sticker that I have been trying to get to put on…

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Hand Soap

If you didn’t already know about this hand soap– invest in bottle or two. You can thank me later. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day is the epitome of great branding for hand soap. The label’s graphic design is crisp and distinguishable organized by colors that coordinate with the fragrance of the soap. The typography of the…

Virgil Abloh “Watch the Throne”

Kanye West and JayZ’s album Watch the Throne is one of the more notable pieces of rap from the 2010s. Serving as the creative Director of the project, Virgil Abloh designed the cover art for it, Which features a gold surface with engraving details. Using 4 way symmetry with the corners, the cover has a…

Graphic Design “In the Wild”

I was walking through Target the other day when I noticed this bag that belonged to one of other shoppers. Instantly, I was obsessed with the look of this design and I asked her where she got it! She told me she ordered it from Etsy and that was no surprise to me because Etsy…

AHA can

I chose this can of sparkling water because of the different elements of design that I noticed.  First, I noticed the bright colors how the font stood out.  After reading the brand name, my eyes noticed the other, smaller typeface around the can.  I was also drawn to the colors because of the contrast to…

The Chameleon

“The Chameleon” is an imposter-in-the-group board game. The box cover has a green-yellow checkerboard that allows for a “disappearing text” optical illusion depending on how you’re looking at it. I love this design largely for the thematic aspect, but also because I think it’s able to stand on its own without knowing the game. When…

Nike

Before I get into my writing I will claim this is my photo and how I know it is, is because I have very boney hands and those are my dad’s legs in the background. Anyways, Nike is well known for having many different designs as they bring on many different athletes and creators to…

Twitter

I always find it intriguing when a logo or app can be noticed without any type of typography. The twitter logo can be noticed from anyone. I love the simplicity of it and the unique shape of the bird that is now fully associated with twitter. I think it is important when designing logos, especially…

Coca-Cola In The Wild

Coca-Cola is one of the most prominent beverage companies. Their packaging and style has changed quite a bit throughout time. In the photo below, you can see their history of bottles over the years. The bottle I have looks to be a similar shape and size as the 1991 bottle. Personally, I have never enjoyed…
