I løbet af min karriere som bogstavkunstner indsamlede jeg tonsvis af inspirerende billeder af vintage grafik, der krydsede min vej, mens jeg gennemsøgte worldorld .ide .eb. Især den kunstneriske bogstaver og ornamentik fra forældet emballage fascinerer mig meget. I dag er det vel svært at finde produkter, der skiller sig ud på grund af et højt håndværksniveau – både inde og ude. Men jeg tror, at der er lidt comeback i dag, og dekoreret emballagedesign har en genoplivning.

Så i denne artikel vil jeg vise dig en samling af mine foretrukne tin designs. Jeg håber du nyder og finder lidt inspiration til dine egne projekter. Hvis du har og spørgsmål, feedback eller forslag til næste blogindlæg, bedes kommentere nedenfor :)

This reminds me of vintage fruit crate labels. The artwork in some of these is spectacular.

Tobi – as I said before, “You Guys are A-W-E-S-O-M-E!” It is nice to see what you are doing to preserve a legacy and art form. Kudos, and thank you for being here.

Beautiful tins. These designs were the reaction of artists/designers to the industrial age where everything was looking machined and over simplified. Mass production was ruining the beauty of the created object. This was the birth of the Art Nouveau era (about 1890-1915). Organic and “flowery” ornamentation with muted natural tones were the motif. It was quickly followed by the Art Deco age that gave us some of the most distinctive historic architecture surviving in some of our larger cities. Heavily ornate but more geometric form with symmetry and resplendent with gold! As the modern age developed from here, the concept of “form follows function” and simplification emerged. I just read an interesting article that suggested that modern design has come to it’s most natural conclusion with extreme minilism. There is very little “human” about it. The suggestion was made that 2020-21 will see a turning from this design form to perhaps a fresh new approach to these earlier art periods.

Great images! Thank you for posting them large enough to see the detail. Do you have an idea as to the date ranges of these products? I’m doing a project that takes place between 1870 – 1915 and I curious what trends existed then. These look like they’re likely early turn of the 20th century. But how early I wonder?

Anyway, keep up the good work!

This is a nice collection of tins from a span of ad artwork styles. It’s interesting to see the variety of styles and approaches used. Great inspiration!
Thanks for showing this.

Beautiful and inspiring images – thank you for sharing these with us! From looking at these tins it seems to me that advertising artists of the past believed a beautiful package would compel consumers to purchase the item if only to have a small piece of art in their home… or maybe that’s the kind of consumer I am? They’re lovely.

Your work – every inch of it….is truly awesome. Not being proficient on any design platforms, I truly enjoy enjoy ‘window shopping’ when I need time out from the daily grind! Thanks Tobias
