Inspiration of the day: Vintage Packaging

Posted By Evane Corder On December 10, 2013 @ 12:02 pm In Inspiration | No Comments

As a student of graphic design, I'm constantly looking at packaging as a source of inspiration. These vintage beauties below, via The DieLine, [1] feel perfectly suited for a wedding inspiration mood-board. This Parisian piece incorporates an elaborate crest, hand-drawn typography, floral prints and contrasting patterns. The Brazilian cigarette packaging below includes unique lettering, intricate details and flourishes, and a monochromatic poppy-red and white palette.


The great thing about visual inspiration is not just that it can come from anywhere, but also that it can be applied to anything! You could be inspired by a fabric for your wedding invitation suite, or a photograph from your Instagram feed may determine the color scheme for your bridesmaid's dresses. These vintage packaging design could inspire beautiful entrance signage welcoming guests to your big day. And of course there are plenty of opportunities for packaging inspiration to apply to your own packaging for your wedding: favors, attendant gifts, desserts or other mealtime displays, or perhaps custom labels for wine served at the reception.
