In our haste to consume the things we love, we often disregard or discard packaging without a second thought. While many would argue that they bear no significance or should be done away with in our quest to save the environment, there is a lot more to packaging design than meets the eye. On top of conveying a brand's personality, purpose, or message meaningfully and embodying its contents in ways that catch the eye, a seemingly ordinary bottle or box can become an artist or designer's canvas for extraordinary creative expression. Packaged for Life: Coffee & Tea
highlights some of the most delightful packaging design work for both tea -- what the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization deems "the most consumed beverage in the world" -- and coffee, a beverage most people cannot live without.
Includes loose insert booklet, (Almost) Everything You Need to Know About Coffee & Tea
, detailing the history and culture of both beverages around the world.
