A stationery and packaging design junkie, I could only drool at the elegant hexagonal candle packaging, by design studio Angel Bomb, with its intricate laser cutting, and the ability to be tessellated together, reflecting the awesome work of the bees that produced the wax for these candles.

Thia Shi Min highlights these lovely designs from Angel Bomb on designtaxi.com where the beautiful Nightshift Blue French Paper was treated with a subtly darker ink, a stunning contrast to the yellow of the beeswax candles inside.

Design Studio Angel Bomb said of this project:

“When we started developing packaging, we decided to focus on the bee’s process of collecting wax. Layered with different elements of the process, custom illustrated flowers climb around the label over the top of a laser cut honeycomb pattern. This movement alludes to the cycle the bees go through to collect this wax throughout their entire life.”

Intriguing comics and sweet illustrations from Talya Modlin

Talya Modlin dabbles in both comic book-making and quirky illustration as highlighted in an It’s Nice That post by Liv Siddall. As an artist baffled by art school crticism (dare I say, snobbery) about illustration and design, it’s refreshing to find Modlin’s drawings which are fun, lively and full of personality.

As an artist, illustrator and designer I share Nicole Tan’s passion for both digital and traditional media: how we wish there was a “ctrl-z” or “undo” button for the real world! I love it when illustrators and artists combine the two worlds: both have so much to offer and why does one have to cancel out the other?
