Busy as a bee...

The honey bee is a master designer. This fact makes the task of creating innovative packagaing for Savannah Bee Company's honey all the more challenging, yet so fun. Graphic Artist, Collin Cummings took on the challenge for a school project and the results are nothing short of extraordinary. 

Inspired by the diligent work of the honey bee, which is a highly industrial procedure, Collin had to come up with a design that complemented the bees' hard work ethic. As Collin noted, "Although honey production is so systematic in nature, the finished product is elegant and soft." He added, "The clear and simple bottles with a minimal design cause the design to rely on the honey, which is beautiful alone." 

Collin continues, "Typographically, I kept the brand very sterile and minimal to address the industrial quality. As the honey gets ued, each bottle reveals its individual personality through a unique pattern. I wanted to establish a sense of revelation. By slowly expressing the elegance of each type, the bottles would stand out as being timeless." The empty glass jars with pretty patterns could then be reused, another benefit to thoughtful design. 

Collin's stunning work pays homage to the perfected skills of the honey bee. Although this was done as a school project and you can't actually purchase these bottles, you can still buy the wonderful honey that inspired the design.

I am constantly buying and trying different types of honey, but I have never seen anyone pay so much attention to the packaging. Wonderful idea and so unique. Thanks for sharing this link and great job Collin!
