This is my first post featuring my deep
interest for vintage branding and packaging design. My fascination began whilst
a student where we would often visit the Robert Opie museum of vintage
packaging at the Gloucester Docks in England. From that point on I was hooked
and it's since grown into a leisure pursuit (some might say obsession) of mine,
with my poor wife and son often having our trips away interrupted with me
snapping away at old boxes and signs. The invention of the cell phone camera
has probably saved our house from a man cave filled with the stuff.
To this end, I look forward to sharing my interest on the evolution of some of
our most well known brands and packaging designs. Some have changed subtlety,
yet others have had a complete face lift throughout their life span. We often
take them for granted, but we live with these items and symbols every single
day. They communicate, guide us and often without us even being aware of it,
have a deep attachment to them, like an old friend or family member they instil
trust in us.
