The first week of July marked the beginning of Back to School season for 2011. Naturally, I have been counting down the months for this ever since spring of 2010: mostly because I can finally share with you all that I worked on last year. This week, I scouted out the lunchbox section at my local Toys’R’Us and was able to find these goodies all sitting on the shelves.
December 26th marked the launch of Thermos’ partnership with Threadless: finally! I have been dying to share news of this product line since we began developing it this past summer. Preparing for the after-Christmas debut kept us extremely busy right up until the holiday break, so you can imagine how great it feels to finally see them out in store. The products, which are exclusive to Target, include bottles and lunchboxes…with more to come later this year. Get excited.
To introduce the line, this video was produced.
We were also lucky enough to have one of the artists fly in from London to share his design philosophy and process.
One of the great things about working with Jen is that her dad works for Anheuser Busch. So from time to time, we get to sample some of their more unique offerings. Today, I was surprised with a chance to try some of the new water they are producing: BORBA skin care water. (NO: it’s not made from beer.)
According to this post, BORBA water is part of a skin care line and is supposed to help promote great skin from within. I just thought it tasted good and had a great product design. I especially love that the outer cap doubles as a glass: it’s a great way to keep the shape of the bottle while working around the screw-off cap issue.
