BEV PORN

I’ve been swimming in coffee and tea packaging inspiration, so I thought I’d share my world with you today. HAM is about to launch into a very exciting rebrand for a local bev maker here in NH. We’re very excited. Not to mention totally jacked up on the high quality coffee our client keeps generously sending us away with after meetings. Life is good.

Oh, and we here at Okay Great have a very exciting giveaway coming up (that’s related to this post, actually!) so keep reading and be on the lookout for that soon!

More bev porn after the jump!

R.I.P. Leslie Buck

Moment of silence please, for Leslie Buck who passed away on Monday at the age of 87. Buck was the man behind that cup of coffee above. He was a Nazi refugee from Europe who came to America and landed a Sales Manager position at a little start up paper cup company in the 60s. Buck figured since all the diners in the city were Greek, why not follow that theme in paper cups? Brilliant. Not only did he get a better title (Director of Marketing) he also created an object that will forever be tied to one of the world’s greatest, most infamous cities. NYC, coffee, paper products – man I love this country. Thanks for your bright idea, Mr. Buck. Just one more bit of proof that design can permeate the souls of everyday people.

And from all of us here at OK Great, “We Are Happy to Serve You.”
