Friday Favourites

Congratulations, you made it through the first week of January, so welcome to our first Friday Favourites of 2018! To help start the New Year with a blast of fresh creative inspiration, we’ve selected inspiring stories from a broad range of disciplines to share this week, and we’re starting with something that we’re all very familiar with here at DB…

Inspiring Packaging Design

The Dieline, as we’re sure you know, is a brilliant place to keep an eye on the latest packaging designs from around the world, and Laura points us towards an end-of-year round up of their top 50 packaging designs of 2017. Here are a few from the list, and you can see them all here.

AbeBooks is a brilliant place to buy rare books, antique maps, vintage comic books, paper collectibles and all sorts of other treasures, if you’ve got any Christmas money left to spend.

Instagram of the Week

For those who appreciate order, symmetry, and to have everything ‘just so’, our favourite Instagram photography find this week is Adam Hillman, who describes himself as an “Object Arranger” – take a look at some of his aesthetically pleasing photos below:

Music for your ears

We love sharing the extra-curricular creative activities of the people we work with every day, so we’re ending this week with the latest music video from Hey Gigantic. For those of you who don’t know, our very own Jonny B is in the band, and the video was directed and edited by his pal Ed Hobson. Here comes ‘Passenger’…

You can follow Hey Gigantic on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Happy listening!
