211. Pentawards 2008.

The good folks over at The Dieline have all the winners of the 2008 Pentawards - the global packaging design awards. As a matter of fact (and deservedly so) the Dieline is the official blog for the awards. Well-played. I think this year's awards are very bottled-beverage heavy, and so some of my favorites are not from that category. I was particularly pleased to see the packaging for Microsoft Vista get awarded - as packaging design hasn't exactly been Microsoft's strongpoint. And the Vista work was well-done while not ripping-off Apple in anyway, no easy task. The milk cartons (below) are just too pleasing to be milk cartons, while the sausage packaging stands out in a category that is abysmal at best. Go visit The Dieline to see the other 202 winners, which of course includes the awesome aluminum Coke bottle.
