Body Shimmer

For my first February Wild Design Post I chose my favorite Victoria Secret body shimmer spray. Personally I have found that the packaging of this bottle to be one of the most fitting styles for what is inside the bottle. I love that the perfume itself is a peach colored liquid but that is not…

Coca-Cola

I took this picture at the Coca-Cola world in Atlanta, Georgia. Coca-Cola is such a huge company and known around the world for its products. The first thing that comes to mind when I see the company’s logo is a rich gassy soda flavor and its biggest competitor Pepsi. I used to drink tons of…

Hello Bello

For this Wild Design I chose Hello Bello baby wipes. An unconventional choice, perhaps, but I felt there was something in the design of this product which stood out and should be examined. The main thing that stood out to me about this product was the genius of marketing a thing used for something unpleasant…

Everyone Lotion

For this Wild Design I chose a bottle of coconut lemon scented  Everyone lotion. What I noticed first about this design was the emboldened letters “lotion” across the front. It was interesting to me that the brand name took second place to the name of the product. This gave the product an overall generic feeling.…

Enlight: Art and Science in Everyday Life

I love dance. I dance every day, and I am on Fusion Dance Crew at NC State. One dancer that I came across on Instagram goes by the name of Mr. Kriss from Prague. What is interesting about Mr. Kriss (or Kristián Mensa) is that he is also a graphic designer. I like his Instagram…

Blue Cat Food

For my Wild Design, I chose to review the branding on this cat food. It was recommended that I start feeding my cat wet food occasionally therefore I had to make my way to the grocery store and look at the array of cans and a variety of brands available to me. I, of course,…

22 A Million: Symbols and Music Inspiring One Another

I recently took a trip up to the Midwest for a graduate school visit. One of my favorite artists is Bon Iver, and the frontman, Justin Vernon, is from the Midwest. So throughout the entire visit, I listened to Bon Iver, and my favorite album from front to back is called 22 A Million. The…

Lululemon Bag

After my first purchase at Lululemon, I received this bag used to carry my product outside of the store. I’ve seen this bag around before and have always tried to read it from a distance. However, when I received my own, I realized that the design is rather complicated and confusing to read. Although Lululemon…

Wild Design: Black & White Coffee Roasters

For my second wild design I chose the Black and White Coffee Roasters brand I saw downtown at the Videri chocolate factory. What initially attracted me to the brand was the type, specifically the ampersand, because of the sign directing customers to the entrance. The ampersand caught my eye because of the disconnected swash. One…

Trader Joe’s Cold Brew Coffee

When I was putting away my groceries earlier today, my roommate’s can of Trader Joe’s cold brew coffee immediately caught my eye on the shelf. I would personally not buy canned cold brew coffee for myself, but this can does an amazing job of attracting potential buyers. I think the element that stuck out to…

Bumper Sticker

For my next Wild Design choice, I chose an image that stopped my right in my tracks while leaving the Food Lion parking lot recently. The image is of a bumper sticker that I was unfortunate enough to bear witness to. The bumper sticker shows a confederate flag followed by the slogan “Redneck Lives Matter.”…

Wicked Playbill

For my Wild Design choice, I have decide to use the playbill for the hit Broadway musical Wicked. When attending the show in New York, my friends and I immediately began discussing the cover and how much we enjoyed the art of it. The cover is simple, focusing on the two main characters of the…

Hubert’s Lemonade

Hubert’s Lemonade immediately caught my eye in a convenience store one day due to its fascinating design. I would usually go for Minute Maid Lemonade, but I could not resist the cute lemon winking at me. The product appeals to customers due to the shape and style of the clear glass bottle. I prefer drinking…

Django Unchained

One of my favorite directors is Quentin Tarantino, his story telling ability and cinematography draws me in every time I see one of his films. My favorite of his films is Django Unchained, and I’ve chosen a poster for that film for this Wild Design post! The first time I saw this poster, I thought,…

Wild Design: Pret-A-Porter

Board games don’t usually get the opportunity to be redesigned, because it’s expensive and most people won’t buy a board game twice. So the incentive has to be there to do so, and luckily Pret-A-Porter got that chance. Pictured below is the old design of the game. The original Pret-A-Porter was an abysmally ugly game.…
