the best of the first half 2009

SO MUCH GOOD STUFF SO FAR.

As we approach the halfway point of 2009, we’ve begun seeking out the best and brightest in the ol’ Custom Letters Dept. And we are asking for submissions—if you see something we’ve missed, please send us a link.

Custom Letters is an evolving category that includes calligraphy, sign painting, graffiti, stone carving, digital lettering, hand lettering, paper sculpture, and type design (we’d prefer to feature new/original type over, say, revivals).

Custom, in this instance, means built from scratch; we aren’t looking for customization—a type treatment or 3d treatment—of an existing typeface.

We’ll be adding more pieces as the year progresses, culminating with a Best of 2009 at the end of the year.

Now to the good, the great, and the notable stuff we’ve seen so far in 2009.

100+ Minimal and Typographic Package Designs

Time for a little inspiration. Package design can be tricky, but as you can see here, sometimes it can be relatively simple and still come across as beling elegant. Sometimes, less is more….. Here are over 100 examples of package design that either has a minimal style, or a typographic based solution. If you like these and you’d like to learn more about package design, TheDieline.com and LovelyPackage.com are the places to visit. A big thanks goes out to them for a lot of the images you see here.
