Household Gloves Fuller Packaging

Here’s a fun packaging for household gloves made by Fuller Brush Co. It has some fun illustrations of ladies cleaning the house which of course wouldn’t fly with today’s standards but hey the illustrations are nice. The flowers, the glove and the type made me pick up this example of Mid Century Packaging geared towards the fine women of that era. There is no date but I’d say this is from the 1950’s. Enjoy!

Paul Rand and Alvin Lustig Collab

Here’s an interesting book cover designed by Paul Rand. The interesting thing about this is that Alvin Lustig hired Rand to design this cover  while the interior design and typography was done by Alvin Lustig. This brings two great designers together. Such a fun and modern cover. Enjoy!

Sweetheart Sparkles Straws Packaging circa 1950’s

Here’s a fun packaging for Sweetheart Sparkles Straws made by Divisions of Maryland Cup Corporation. They are colorful transparent dinking straws that display nicely through the die cut window in the shape of a cup. I really like how they arranged the type in the stem of the cup. There’s no date on this thing but the type and shapes totally scream 1950’s. Enjoy!
