La Fidelia


Admiring the tea packaging and branding of La Fidelia.   The tea is an artisan and natural product made with Peruvian flowers and fruits, which is the inspiration for the design.  The illustration, branding and packaging is a collaborative effort of designer and illustrator
Carla Eráusquin Bayona and Paloma Nieri.

M’s Craft

We’re always on the lookout for creative ways to wrap a gift.  We found these garlands that we think will greatly embellish a package.   It is sold in the Japanese handmade market site Minne.

The shop name is M’s Craft and as typical of Japanese sites the creator’s name is not listed.  The items are made from cultivated in-house flowers carefully chosen for their colors and picked as per season and occasion.

Alexandra Snowdon


Loving the work of UK-based artist Alexandra Snowdon.  She is a self- employed illustrator and hand lettering artist, working on commissions from a range of worldwide clients. On Design Juices she says this about her work:

‘The lettering and illustrations in my prints are all created by hand, starting off as tiny pencil doodles in my sketchbook. I complete the finished pieces using ink (if I want the design to be bold and striking) or pencil (for a softer look). The designs are then either transferred to a silkscreen for hand printing or output on my giclée printer using fade resistant, archival inks. I try to keep computer usage to a minimum, using it mainly as a tool to clean up and rescale my artwork. I try not to make it look too ‘perfect’ though, I love seeing evidence of the human touch and all it’s quirks and imperfections.’

You can find the artist on her website, Instagram and Behance.  You can purchase her prints and cards in her Etsy shops.
