There is an endearing interplay of natural an artificial occurring in the design of Brian Brubaker's Premium Handmade Coasters packaging. With this, the Tried & True Supply Co. designer opted for stay true to the charming mug mats with an image that was relatively simple and would reference the artisan spirit of the products inside.

The solution was to assemble a basic kraft paper box and maintain its original brown color. Block lettered descriptions of the items were applied to several sides of the carton -- but that isn't all. For a little bit of playful detail, Brian decided to make the screen printing more expressive. Squiggly illustrations that emulate woody patterns cover all sides of Premium Handmade Coasters packaging, and this was even done with environmental consciousness in eco-friendly water-based ink.
