German designer Johannes Schulz has created an eye-catching new concept for a bottle of Vodka. The undeniable focal point of Spine Vodka is the three-dimensional spine and ribcage featured within each bottle.

Designer Jamie Wieck gives chocolate-giving an update with this clever idea: printable chocolates. The individual chocolate “pegs” can be arranged in a box to form a word or short message that is printed on the top inside of the box (thanks to chocolates with a low melting point which allows the chocolate to melt even in room temperature). Unfortunately, it’s only concept, but hopefully something like this gets mass production.…

Print Magazine asked four designers to imagine what a legal pot package might look like. Here's what they produced.
Lust, a graphic design practice in Amsterdam, tackled the controversy of the product head-on---albeit in a very dry, very arch manner. They opted to cover the package in infographics about weed, and its effects--which they claim would create an anti-brand brand, and also, presumably, turn the product into something more neutral than the demon weed.
