Woshi-Woshi: Japanese inspired packaging

To me, this Japanese-inspired packaging brings to mind tea (something like these) or, perhaps more appropriately, sake (something like these). But it is in fact packaging for a line of Russian skin and hair care products – shower gels, liquid soaps, bath salts, deodorants, shampoos, and conditioners.

Created by Art Lebedev Studio, the bold and colourful illustrations are inspired by Japanese gardens and manhole covers. You can see my previous post about the oddly beautiful manhole covers of Japan here and see just how much they have influenced this design.

I discovered this wonderful packaging thanks to a tweet by Creative Roots yesterday. Creative Roots is a great design blog that showcases the best of graphic design, illustration and art from all around the world. There’s a lot of amazing stuff in their Japan collection, as well as this packaging (although this isn’t strictly Japanese, the inspiration is obvious!). And, of course, there’s some great art and design gems from the rest of the world too!
