St. Hubert's new "green" packaging

If you love looking at great packaging design on blogs like TheDieline and Lovely Package (like me!), then you should really check out Packaging | UQAM. The site's curator, Sylvain Allard, is a professor at L'École de Design at L'Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). He is interested in sustainable and environmentally sound packaging design. I particularly like the Québecois Rotisseries St-Hubert's new eco-friendly packaging. They made a move away from styrofoam to recyclable materials as well as reducing the size of their containers.

Here are a few more things I like over at Packaging | UQAM...

  4. @Leanda: I know! It makes me want to create all kinds of cookie typefaces ;)

    @Johanna: Québec always deserves a shout out in my books, it is after all "La Belle Province" ;)

  5. @Kate: Ha! That's so funny!! I can't wait to get me some of that Turkey's (?) Rooster's (?) fried food - and in eco-friendly packaging no less ;)

  6. Thank you Bess for your interest in my blog.
    There should be a lot of new stuff next week.
    Best regards
    Sylvain Allard

  7. I love the tote as well. Bess, you should develop that macaroni font you started, it combines food and typeface in a most pleasing way. And, yes, did Tyke take your head shot? He can do better, even though you come from a non photogenic family.
