Eco/Techno Polo Shirts

Impressive eco-friendly packaging for Lacoste. See below for a few words from Mind Design the designers behind it all.

“In collaboration with Tom Dixon we worked on the branding and packaging for two very different types of polo shirts commissioned by Lacoste. The most eco-friendly way to package a shirt was not to print on the packaging at all but use embossing instead. For the techno polo we designed a speaking label that plays Tom’s voice at the push of a button – very techno.”

From the VC Archives

Circa the 2008 presidential election, VC presented an iconic poster series that examined some of the most pressing issues of our time. To mark the occasion, which sparked a fascinating dialogue amongst Visual Culturists, we’ve decided to pull it out of the archives, dust it off and place it back on display for the sake of exploring just how much progress, if any, we’ve managed to make since then. To view the original post go to “Freedumb isn’t Free”.

Art Directors Club has a new logo

The ADC has introduced a new logo. Head over to Brand New for more on the rebrand. We have to agree with Armin on this one, it is not “cutting the mustard”

The new branding system follows the lead of the club’s recently revised mission to “Connect, Provoke and Elevate” creative visual communications professionals around the world through its many events, educational programs, publications, scholarships and awards.

The conversations are focused in that each contributor is asked the same two questions, but their thoughts are inspiring and diverse and well worth viewing. To view the entire 30 creatives go here.
