The 2008 Pentawards for worldwide package design have been announced. The awards include honors for the top package designs in food, beverages, body care and luxury products.

This is a selection of some of my personal favorites from the winners. A new red aluminum Coca-Cola bottle is the Platinum winner in the beverage category. Gloji puts its juice in a light bulb shape and tags it as 'The Juice That Makes You Glow.' Two water bottles are here with gorgeous vessels: Evian looking like a perfume bottle and Lanjaron with a built-in mountain.

In the food category I love the Sultry Sally potato chip bags, the packaged herbs from Waitrose Herbs and the Miaw Miaw cat food tins.

Also here is a body detailer 'shower tool' from Axe, a cool box for laundry soap that looks like a washing machine and the Best in Show, Diamond Award Winner Piper Heidsieck with its upside down Rosé Sauvage by Viktor and Rolf. Stats for Awards for Innovative Package Design Trending: Older & Warm
