Trader Joe’s Packaging

Jamie Bartlett Blog Post Food, Graphic Design, Packaging, Trader Joe's 2759 Views

I love grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s for many reasons. It’s walking distance from our apartment. They have less options; which means faster/easier shopping for a girl who always wants to see all her options before she picks anything. Their ingredient lists often only has a few items listed, all off which I can recognize/pronounce. And I love shopping there

Beyond that, it’s just a blur. I’ll be the first to admit that when Jake and I stroll through the wine isle with hopes of making our

Ok, are you ready for this weeks Finders Keepers? Because it sure is a keeper. Cuppow is one of the best inventions I’ve seen in a long time. It’s a drinking lid for a mason jar! Simple, right? Yep, but also brilliant. There are so many great uses for mason jars these days. Anything from serving dessert–to your weekend craft

So of course Jake and I left a comment, but I really wasn’t expecting to win. It seems to me, I’m one of those people

Morning Brew: Pasta Packaging

I really think that if food companies started designing their packaging more like this, they’d have a lot more people my age buying their products. This packaging would win me over any day. I’d want to buy them all just to make my kitchen cabinet look so well designed.  Source: Erik Johansson
