The New Old Fashioned
Whiskey and Cigar Gift Set
During the holiday season, so much gift packaging is used and wasted. So, I designed a gift box with a second use. At first, it is a box that holds whiskey stones, which keep drinks cold without watering them down. When reassembled, it becomes a cigar ash tray. Additionally, on each side is a matchbox pattern that can light a match. The remaining piece becomes a freezer tray for the whiskey stones. This was a partner project, so my partner Abey Tidwell designed the logo and helped take these wonderful photos. I came up with the concept, construction, and brand name, and designed the instructions card. Our screen printing ink options were limited, so metallic gold was not our first choice, but we like the way it turned out. I would probably do the logo differently in the future, but I'm very proud of this project.
