Design: Eye-catching tissue boxes

As I was browsing La Presse during my lunch break, I stumbled upon thoses great tissue boxes design made by some of UQAM’s design students.

They are so great! I thought I’d share so you could enjoy them, as well:

I’d love to get theses in a “pocket-size” format!

I love the environmental message that goes with this one.

Do you really need a comment? :-p Very, funny.

I am sure this one would cheer up anyone with a cold. 🙂

Theses are just my favorite. As you may see, I have a big thing for “funny”. :-p (Except for the tree one, of course!)

You will find more tissue boxes over at Packaging UQAM, a design blog written by Sylvain Allard, one of the teachers in this department.

Inspiration: Make your own fabric designs with Spoonflower

When I first heard about Spoonflower, in May 2008, they were just starting their Beta version.

Now, not only can you make your own fabric pattern, but you can also get fabrics made by other indie designers (Including doll patterns!).
I am so amazed at what they’ve done in so little time.

Here’s some fabrics design inspiration I found via their Flickr group.

By Hamburger Liebe.

By Boodilly.

From Comfort Stitching

I love the use of simple drawings on fabrics here.

Here’s some examples of the dolls pattern you can make via Spoonflower.

You could even make some pillows with your fabrics. I love this idea!

If you never heard of them before, you should really take some time to take a look at their website.
It is a very interesting option if you’re an illustration/designer and looking for a way to offer different products.

Gotta love the web!

Art vs is the blog where arts & crafts are no longer fighting!
It's about illustration, crafts & related events.
