Karen Cornish is a graphic designer that speaks both English and Japanese. She wanted to highlight her bilingual skills so she made her self-promotional materials look shipped from another country. The envelope opens to reveal some of her work and a little bit about her life story, including a photo of herself. She is very talented, some other work can be seen at http://www.behance.net/kcornish

When looking up packaging and identity designs, I found several websites that had very creative ways to market a product.This website has a few that show how beautiful colors and interesting shapes can make a product look unique. Also, many interesting packaging designs show the product being sold resembling something else, for example a sponge that they make look like a slice of cheese.

I found this logo that I think is very cute and interesting. The designer was William Patino and the company was Antartica. The lowercase ‘A’ looks like a penguin with the creative typeface and good use of positive and negative space. Although I am not sure which company it is for, the same designer created several other logos that are similar and creative. http://logopond.com/members/profile/showcase/20452

While searching for my identity project, I came across a tea company called Hanger Tea.  It separates itself from the rest of the tea companies by using an original package design. The bold colors and whimsical aspects also help set it apart from its competitors. It has a very clean design. The designers name is Soon Mo Kang.
