Stackars stackars Lillan, hon mår inte alls bra idag och pendlar mellan hosta med slem i bröstet och sprutande näsblod.

Oj oj, ett chockartat uppvaknande med blod i hela sängen startade vi denna dag med. Sedan har det jarit jobbigt för henne mest hela dagen. Nyss fick hon en halv Alvedon så jag hoppas att hon blir en aning piggare strax.

Annars händer inte så mycket här. Jag överväger att plocka undan lite av julen och kanske dammsuga av lite. Nyss vinkade vi också av Lillans mellanstorasyster som sticker till Alperna över helgen för att fira nyår med sina vänner. Oh yes! Jag hade också kunnat tänka mig att vara 19 år och dra till Alperna över helgen…

Men men, att vara hemma med sin fina familj   och fira in det nya året med bästa vännerna är inte så pjåkigt det heller. Hoppas verkligen att Lillis blir frisk så vi kan ha fest hos farfar som planerat.

 

Kram kram

An intricate deck of cards that are out of this world

STARDECK is a set of sci-fi themed playing cards designed and illustrated by Lunar Saloon. Instead of featuring royalty, STARDECK’s face cards represent four archetypal science fiction factions; Spades are aliens, Clubs are space marines, Diamonds are members of a mega corporation, and Hearts are, naturally, robots.

“We struck out to create STARDECK after unsuccessful attempts at finding a well-designed set of sci-fi themed playing cards. Most are based off of existing properties like Star Wars or Star Trek, and their face cards are decorated with uninspiring photography. In response, we created our own world and filled it with richly illustrated characters in the style of classic card art.”

Nu startar vi upp renoveringen av köket!

 

 

köksrenovering

Som jag skrivit om tidigare tänker vi renovera köket här hemma.
Nu är det dags, sonen har börjat riva ned sitt gamla kök från början på 80-talet.  Snart ska även en vägg i deras hus rivas & vårt kök ska få flytta hem till dem.

köksrenovering

renovering kök_myrberg

Hög tid även för oss att sätta fart i vårt lilla hus.
Dags att åka över till Ikea för att inhandla deras nya kökssystem Metod,
det vi har är deras tidigare variant Faktum.  Höjden på dessa system är detsamma så vi hoppas att det inte ska påverka vår stenskiva som vi ska behålla.  Vi tänker byta ut en modul i taget, på så sätt kan den tunga skivan ligga kvar på plats under hela renoveringen.

köksrenovering

Prickar av på köplistan vilka stommar & vilken inredning vi vill ha redan här hemma, perfekt att ha med sig till stora varuhuset, då är det bara att direkt plocka produkterna ur rätt fack när vi kommer dit.

Så vad blir det då för luckor?   Jo det landade som allt som oftast här hos oss,   vi -läs maken- tillverkar dem själv. Ett blivande DIY projekt är alltså pågång … dvs. fortsättning följer!

Andas in, Andas ut … dags för Ikea,
håll tummarna för att inte precis ALLA är där just idag 😉

Parents and Kids will Love Chemical-Free Real Good Gum

You might want to think twice before chewing your next stick of gum. Most gums on the market today contain a nasty chemical that you’ll also find in not-so-delicious products like tires and plastic. Luckily, Real Good Gum has amazing flavors and is free of the gunk. The Butler Bros developed the branding, digital, and packaging design for the gum, making it something that both kids and parents can agree on.


Real_Good_Case_Study_Final


BBros_Real_Good_Mint_Pack_2400px.jpg

“Kids love gum. They don’t read labels. We positioned this wild-harvested, petrochemical-free gum to grab attention from kids and respect from parents.”

“The gum industry has a very dirty secret—the vast majority of gum actually contains petrochemicals. Read any gum label today and you’ll see an ingredient called ‘gum base,’ which often contains the same chemicals used to make plastic bottles and car tires. We needed to appeal directly to kids, who generally don’t care about ingredients, and to concerned parents looking for cleaner options.”

BBros_Real_Good_Cinnaman_Pack_2400px.jpg

Real_Good_Case_Study_Final


“In addition to creating custom illustrations for each flavor, we established a unique flavor-naming convention. Since Real Good is starting a whole new conversation about gum, each flavor name is a play on a familiar greeting.”

The neon colors and psychedelic illustrations instantly make Real Good Gum stand out. It creates an outrageous, playful imaginary world that speaks to the refreshing flavors of the gum. The copywriting adds wit and humor, with names like “Hello Bubbleful” and “Nice to Mint You.”  For parents who need to make a split second decision, it’s easy to see that the product is “gunk-free” and made from organic ingredients.

Real_Good_Case_Study_Final

“Selling away from the status quo means educating consumers about all the hidden ingredients found in gum today. We created a website that’s heavy on information, but still light, open and whimsical. It’s useful for buyers, parents, or a kid who stumbles across it. We also used the artwork from the website and packaging to create engaging and consumable bites of content for all of Real Good’s social feeds.”

Enrejado Gin comes in a box with an ominous crow on the front, and on the side we see a pattern of chicken wire. Inside, the bottles are wrapped in a sleeve of chicken wire as well, enhancing the experience for the consumer. The color palette is simple—black and white only—pops against the red used in their photography, as well as giving it a classic, modern look that implies there is more than meets the eye.

Fint lysa upp träd

_dsc1180

 

God kväll

 

Här sitter jag och väntar på att del två av Kent-dokumentären ska börja. Såg ni första delen igår?

Det var nog bra att jag inte gick fram till Jocke Berg den där gången på hotellet i Gävle.

Han hatar verkligen att bli igenkänd sa han 🙂

Well, well, på bilden ser ni i alla fall farfars hus, inbjudande och fint med upplyst träd (entrén ligger till höger men syns inte i bild, dörren går till ett grovkök).

Det är så fint med upplysta träd tycker jag. Vi har satt spottar under våra silverpäron, men de är så glesa ännu så vi har riktat spottarna mot fasaden så länge.

 

Ha en fin fortsättning på kvällen!

 

Kram kram

Ny tavla på väggen i hallen

_dsc1244

 

Hej hej

 

Lite sjukstuga fick vi såhär i efterdyningarna av julen. Lillan började bli krasslig igår kväll och idag är hon het som en kamin med ond hals. Vi andra är pigga och så hoppas jag att det förblir…

Vi har med andra ord inte gjort många knop här hemma idag, men så måste det få bli. Lillis ligger mest utslagen i soffan med sin iPad och säger inte så mycket, jag går runt och plockar lite och försöker hindra mig själv från att plocka undan alla tomtar…

Strax ska jag börja med middagen, och idag blir det något annat än julmat I tell you that, men först ville jag bara visa vår nya tavla på väggen i den inre hallen.

 

_dsc1241

 

Det är ett fotografi från en Plaza i Palma taget av en mycket begåvad fotograf (finns i svartvit också, numrerade små upplagor, maila mig på info@helenakhome.se vid intresse).

Jag gillar tavlan väldigt mycket och den vita duvan som lyfter mot skyn får för mig symbolisera min önskan om ett mer fredligt år 2017.

Mousegraphics & Established 2014 The Dieline Award Winners

THE DIELINE AWARDS FORMALLY RECOGNIZES THE ABSOLUTE BEST IN CONSUMER PRODUCT PACKAGING DESIGN WORLDWIDE, AND IT BRINGS AWARENESS TO THE IMMENSE VALUE THAT LIES IN WELL-DESIGNED BRAND PACKAGING

“Packaging design is way more than just selling a product or making something look pretty on a store shelf. Whether we realize it or not, packaging plays an integral role in every life, every day, all around the world. Good packaging contains, preserves, protects, and transports the food and items we need to live. However, great packaging—like The Dieline Awards winners—has the ability to change how we think and completely alter the way we interact with the products we consume.” – Andrew Gibbs, Founder of The Dieline

Just Great! has some seriously great olive products

Just Great! is a fun and energetic brand comprised of a variety of olive-based products from Greece. Sophia Georgopoulou designed these products to attract consumers who are looking for high quality in their food products.


IMG_2559low.jpg


IMG_2570low.jpg

“From the very start, it was quite clear that the naming and brand identity for this brand should not follow the beaten path. We wanted to create a friendly, approachable, everyday yet different brand. We wanted to talk about the pleasure and rich emotions that come to life when we come in contact with really great olive products.”
 
“At the end of the day, all these can be encapsulated into a spontaneous exclamation that comes effortlessly to one’s lips – Just Great!”


0002_IMG_2473_okLow.jpg


0007_IMG_2518_ok_Low.jpg

This product must have some gusto to claim it’s “Just Great!” directly on its packaging! The playful typography allows for this message to be relayed in a friendly and organic way, while the simple illustrations reference where the actual product comes from. The simplicity of it actually makes this line of products stand out against the competition and excites the consumer.

0012_IMG_2555_okLow.jpg

“Simple and to the point, the name also leads the design direction towards no-frills, stripped-down simplicity. A brand that does not talk down to consumers, Just Great! is about the core of the Olive experience – and nothing more.”
 
“The general color palette is inspired by the actual olives, the olive fields, and the Greek country-side landscape in general. The fonts were ‘treated’ in a way to enhance the feeling of handmade goodness, since ‘Just Great!’ comes from a family business with a long tradition in olive production.”

Celebrate Authentic Mexican Craftsmanship with Cráneo Organic Mezcal

Cráneo Organic Mezcal is a spirit that honors the culture of Mexico and the well-trusted methods of distillation. Designed by Van Heertum Design VHD and David Ravandi (123 Spirits), the bottle features an Aztec Goddess, hand blown glass, and other carefully chosen details to truly bring it to life. The inspiration for the packaging is fully realized, giving consumers an experience from the moment they see it on a store shelf to when they empty their first glass.

“Inspired by the celebration of life, Cráneo Organic Mezcal is a single village artisanal mezcal handcrafted by local maestro mezcaleros and agave aficionado David Ravandi in the heartland of Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, Mexico. VHD got the inspiring challenge to create the suiting packaging. ‘The result is a design, that tells the brand story using all parts of the packaging,’ Rob van Heertum, VHD’s Strategy Director and Partner, says.”


Fles_Donker_2.jpg


Fles_Donker.jpg

“Cráneo Organic Mezcal begins with hand selecting 100% organic agave grown at 5,600 ft. Harvested when fully matured, charred pit oven roasted piñas are then crushed by a massive stone tahona to extract their sweet juice. Once natural fermentation occurs, small batches of Cráneo Organic Mezcal are distilled twice in copper pot stills capturing bold, complex flavors of agave, rich fermentation notes and smoke.”

“Dedicated to the preservation of ancient Oaxaca methods of artisanal distillation while sustaining the highest quality of production, founder David Ravandi combines the experience and respect of those who have produced the finest mezcal for generations with his own vision and passion.”

Every detail of Cráneo Organic Mezcal is a delight, with nothing overlooked. From the wooden cap and natural cork to the recycled paper and soy-based ink, it embodies what the finest Mexicanl mezcal should be. The sacred skull on the front represents an Aztec goddess, with leaves of agave sprouting out the top. A handmade illustration and font style was used for the label, speaking to the carefully crafted and organic nature of the mezcal.

Mezcal_Uitleg_Print.jpg

Mezcal-Craneo-Fles-Composite.jpg

Mezcal-Craneo-Neklabel.jpg


“These organic and artisanal brand values, together with the authentic Mexican craftsmanship, needed to be communicated through the packaging. So instead of just using the graphic design, we chose to also use all materials and production techniques available, to underline and strengthen these brand values. Hand-blown glass was chosen to create the bottles from 100% recycled glass; the labels are produced from recycled paper, are printed with soy-based inks and glued to the bottles using vegetable based glue; to top it of, wooden caps are used.”

“The graphic design of the labels continues on this road of organic design perfection. Honouring century-old Mexican traditions, the sacred skull depicted on the label was inspired by the Aztec Goddess Mictecacihuatl ‘Meek-teka-see-wahdl,’ the guardian of the bones, which symbolizes strength and influence, complementing the artisanal mezcal that derives its strength and character from agave espadin. Only black and white is used, symbolizing the pureness of the transparent organic spirit. The artwork of the skull was hand carved into wood (symbolizing the craftsmanship of the production of the Mezcal) and the prints from this wooden piece of art, are the base for the actual print work (with soy inks) onto the recycled paper. To give the label the real hand carved feeling, the carvings were embossed into the label.”

Head to the Farm with Roam & Relish Meat Packaging

Roam & Relish is just like heading to the farm directly to get fresh venison, beef, and ham. This line of organic meat comes straight from a small farm in the U.K., and they turned to Buddy to design packaging that would highlight the high quality of their products.

“In deepest Devon, nestling in rolling hills on the edge of Dartmoor, is a farm with a lot of very happy animals. Eversfield is the dream of the Bury family—father Mark, son Hamish and daughter Anna—of a business where the animals and land receive the very best care, producing prize-winning, traditionally-reared, organic meat.”

Roam__Relish_Buddy_3.jpg

Roam__Relish_Buddy_1jpg.jpg


“When the farm took the decision to step into charcuterie—territory once considered to be the preserve of continental countries—it needed packaging that could instantly convey its higher standard of animal welfare and premium quality, alongside more familiar French, Spanish and Italian competition.”

Products from Roam & Relish come from an organic farm that treats its livestock with dignity, so showing illustrations of the animals helps communicate that the meat comes from a living, breathing creature. It adds a level of humanity and clearly advertises the brand’s priorities when creating their products. A cutout allows consumers to see the high quality of the meat they’re about to buy, and the traditional font feels traditional, almost like you’re heading to the farm to get the cuts of venison, beef, and ham.

“It wasn’t a cut-and-dried process. But we were able to develop a name that combined notions of liberated livestock and savoury superiority (with the bonus of a deliciously pigtailesque ampersand). This led to the brand identity, with the hindquarters of happy animals disappearing off the front of each pack emphasising their freedom to wander, and some cultured typography connoting the craft of the curing process. Next to its continental rivals, we think it’s a range that stands apart from the herd.”
