At the recent Typecon conference in Milwaukee, one of my favorite presentations was by Christian Helms of Austin-based Helms Workshop. The small firm recently completed an amazing project for Jack Daniel’s featuring lots of handmade design. This video captures some of the design process.
My favorite poster from the project features 3D wood type they cut out and painted.

Handmade Packaging Workshop explores innovation, design, and the beautiful aesthetic of handcrafted packaging. This book is divided into three sections with the first covering materials, printing and sustainability, the second focusing on tutorials and case studies about different types of packaging, and the last offering information about marketing and taking handmade packaging to a professional level.
