Brand X Liquor
“Brand X is an innovative liquor packaging program developed by CSA Design as a licensed distillery brand concept. Brand X uses a clear, custom-designed flat decanter with a classic bottle silhouette as a blank canvas for never-ending, bottle-related visual puns. Each of the design motifs is treated as a humorous sub-brand.
This Pop Art approach to packaging is unique to CSA Design. We take a broad overview of a product category and approach it in a fresh new way, viewing the package as a surface to showcase an unlimited series of artwork from CSA Images. This provides a continuously new face for the product as well as an infinite number of package variations to fill the constantly hungry online blog-o-sphere.”

Liquid laundry soap in a cardboard bottle?
In USA Today, Bruce Horovitz reports:
On Friday, Seventh Generation, a maker of non-toxic household cleaners, will announce plans to roll out a laundry detergent bottle made from 100% recycled cardboard and newspaper.
While makers of beverages from milk to wine have tested versions of recyclable cardboard containers, this appears to be cardboard’s most serious step into household products.
On the outside, the new bottle looks as though it’s made from the kind of cardboard used to make egg cartons — except it’s smooth and flat. Inside, there’s a plastic pouch that holds the detergent. Overall, the bottle — which still has a twist-off plastic lid — uses 66% less plastic than conventional laundry bottles. When empty, the bottle can be ripped in half and recycled with newspapers. The plastic bag is recyclable in many cities, too.
Initially, the company will make only about one-quarter of its bottles out of cardboard because it doesn’t know how consumers will respond, he [Peter Swaine, director of packaging at Seventh Generation] says. If it’s a hit, says Swaine, it will expand.
