Easter is upon us, and today we’re bringing you our favourite things from the world of Easter-related creativity, from chocolate eggs to fashion, DIY, packaging and typography. Enjoy!
Prestat’s classy packaging might almost make you resist the urge to eat the chocolate egg inside. The stylish branding and colourful packaging make an Easter egg seem like a real treat.
This Easter bunny gift tag reminds us a little bit of Species in Pieces that we brought you last week. The simple geometric design is stylish and not too cutesy. Click here for the DIY guide.
A real surprise awaits you inside this egg box. La Grande Epicerie in Paris has taken real, yes real egg shells, washed them, sterilised them, and then filled them with praline chocolate, and presented them just as if they were real eggs. Very creative…and tasty, too.
Nike’s 2015 Basketball Easter collection is released on 2 April and will be available both online worldwide and also in selected stores. It features the KOBE X, KD7, KYRIE 1 and LEBRON 12, as well as lots of co-ordinating shirts, hats, and socks, all using colours and prints often associated with the Easter season such as duck egg blue, artisan teal and subtle florals.
The makers of British yeast spread Marmite (famous for its ability to divide people – apparently, you either love it or hate it) have launched a Marmite flavoured Easter egg which is available to buy this year. It is possibly very disgusting, but we can’t fault the creativity.
We all know you can’t go wrong with Pantone, so of course we love these Pantone-style dyed eggs. To learn how to recreate these at home, click here.
Maybe you need a Spring appropriate font for your Easter party invites or decorations. How about these ones, which you can download for free here.
Niteesh Yadav is an Indian designer who loves to experiment with lettering. He came up with this egg packaging as an Easter gift idea for graphic designers, featuring the names of popular typefaces on the egg itself, and a lovely box too.
Next up, an alternative Easter egg hunt from artist Zack Smithey, who has spent the first part of this year creating a thousand works of art, which he’ll hide all over the city of St Louis on the evening before Easter. Just like in a traditional Easter egg hunt, whoever finds the pieces gets to keep them. What a way to share art with the masses. View the video here.
If you want an easy and funny way to decorate eggs this Easter, maybe with kids but maybe not, look no further than the Eggvengers. These printables allow you to dress up eggs in “costumes” so that they look just like the famous Avengers characters such as Captain America and Nick Fury. Click here to get them for yourself for free.
Finally, this stunning faceted geometric chocolate Easter egg by Hotel Chocolat. The black and white geometric packaging is already fun, but the egg inside with its interesting angles and unusual shape is definitely something creative and different. And the 65% cocoa milk chocolate that it’s made from doesn’t sound too bad either…
Happy Easter, Feel Desainers!
