It’s no secret that we’re really taken with work of Minneapolis-based art director/photographer/designer/creative genius Brock Davis (see previous posts here and here). Davis has an uncanny ability to transform everyday objects into something unexpected. Sometimes playful, or funny, or irreverent, or random, or plain silly… always a stroke of brilliance. This time, though, we stumbled upon his Instagram account, rather than his portfolio site. Davis delights his over 175,000 followers with semi-frequent visual gems… creative and thought-provoking mini installations sure to at least invoke a smile.

Great, mind-blowing, innovative packaging is rare, and this gem is certainly in a class all its own. Canadian firm Hired Guns Creative was tasked with creating unique brands of several beers for a local craft brewery, Longwood Brewery. While the design of each beer is pretty exceptional, one really stands out. HGC not only named Stoutnik, a Russian Imperial Stout (“It seemed a fitting choice for a beer as dark as space itself”), they chose a striking black matte exterior (including the bottle itself!). We love the prismatic foil stamp and blind emboss Morse code (which tells a story about the beer… brilliant!). If and when we find this, we surely will never recycle the bottles… this packaging is art.
