Ecohols by Jørn

Ecohols by Danish designer, Jørn. An interesting packaging project on what big alcoholic brands would look like if they were challenged with generic packaging cartons instead of their prominent bottles.

The Museum of Obsolete Objects

Posted in Digital, Is it Nice..?, Videos by Ade Chong on September 6, 2011

Just lovely. The Museum of Obsolete Objects is a place for fallen appliances, tools and gadgets from a simpler time. A lovely place to go to relive your childhood. I’m also incredibly impressed by how they built this entire site in Youtube. I remember working with Youtube a year ago and it was such a pain. Youtube must be pushing for brand channels these days if it’s progressed this far this quickly.

The site is built in Flash by German digital agency, Jung von Matt/Next.

From the Breuckelin Distilling Company Inc. – an artisan micro-distillery from Brooklyn. One day I must add this to my growing collection of gin bottles!

The Glenrothes Distillery

Posted in Is it Nice..?, Packaging by Ade Chong on July 27, 2011

Found this little gem on one of Hock’s shelves. I guess this is the plus side of knowing a hoarder. The label is from a 1984 bottle of Scotch whiskey from The Glenrothes Distillery. Their vintage labels go all the way back to 1975 (though the 1984 bottles aren’t on sale anymore), and each bottle is labeled and signed by hand – a very nice touch.

If I were to ever start drinking whiskey, it would be for something special like this!

The original labels. Check out The Glenrothes Distillery website for more info.

I went to Taipei and brought back some gifs
