In this simple yet engaging MILK packaging design, Tripple Red reinvents the way people relate to everyday products. The main focus is the purity of milk – it’s just a single ingredient – and its connection to the customer as something fresh, enriching and gratifying on the shelf, as well as on the kitchen table. The red-and-white pattern is reminiscent of a stitched, antique tablecloth, but the magic comes into play when the design element transforms into MILK when read from afar.
MILK was featured on several design and lifestyle blogs and Red/Tripple Red was recognized for the project by Luerzer’s Archive in the book edition “The World’s Best 200 Packaging Designers”.

Warning the language gets a little R rated.

MAN, MYTH, AND SENSUAL PLEASURES: JAN GOASSART’S RENAISSANCE AT THE MET
Cuurrently on show through January 17, 2011 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is the first major exhibition in forty-five years devoted to the Burgundian Netherlandish artist Jan Gossart (ca. 1478-1532). Man, Myth and Sensual Pleasures: Jan Gossart’s Renaissance brings together Gossart’s paintings, drawings, and prints and places them in the context of the art and artists that influenced his transformation from Late Gothic Mannerism to the new Renaissance mode.
Synopsis: Filmed over nearly three years, WASTE LAND follows renowned artist Vik Muniz as he journeys from his home base in Brooklyn to his native Brazil and the world’s largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. There he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores”—self-designated pickers of recyclable materials.
Muniz’s initial objective was to “paint” the catadores with garbage. However, his collaboration with these inspiring characters as they recreate photographic images of themselves out of garbage reveals both the dignity and despair of the catadores as they begin to re-imagine their lives. Director Lucy Walker (DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND, BLINDSIGHT, COUNTDOWN TO ZERO) has great access to the entire process and, in the end, offers stirring evidence of the transformative power of art and the alchemy of the human spirit.
The film has won 13 Film Festival Awards, including Sundance FIlm Festival Audience Award for Best World Cinema Documentary. The film looks very inspiring. Will you be seeing Wasteland?
