Orange is vibrant. It’s hot, healthy, fruity and engaging. In nature, it’s the color of vivid sunsets, fire, vegetables, flowers, fish, and many citrus fruits. In our contemporary world, orange is the color of marmalade, Halloween, traffic cones, life rafts, Cheetos, and Halloween.This week we take a closer look at some of the latest branding and packaging designs colored orange.
The Bearded Lady
Good People Brewing Co., the oldest brewery in Alabama, has now canned Bearded Lady, one of their most popular taproom brews that was for years available as a summer seasonal only. Bearded Lady is Good People's take on the traditional wheat beer. As a light-bodied beer, and their smoothest to date, it appeals to craft beer connoisseurs and newcomers alike. The design, by Lewis Communications in Birmingham, is at once delicate and bold with a sense of humor that's more smile-in-the-mind than knee-slapping.
LYRA Gianduja Chocolate
LYRA Chocolate looks absolutely delightful and delicious — a premium choice in the fine chocolate market. After success with their Bean-to-Bar and Absolut varieties, LYRA has released Fruity Gianduja and Just Gianduja. Michal Slovák designed the packaging for the newest flavors to go hand in hand with the essence and taste of the bars.
“Since 2012 LYRA has stood for the highest quality handmade chocolate made in Slovakia. LYRA chocolate, made of the finest cocoa beans, criollo and trinitario and grown on the plantations in the Middle and South America, was granted an international award, Great Taste 2014.”

The Simpsons’ Duff Beer Is Brought To Life
For all you Simpson's lovers out there, get ready to go bananas. Duff Beer might be coming to your hometown very soon. After many failed attempts by third-party companies to bring Duff beer into the market, 21st Century Fox is now entering the beer business itself. Chile will be the first country to be gifted this long-awaited beverage, followed by the rest of South America and Europe. Because the Chilean market has increasingly over time produced unauthorized versions of the product, 21st Century has decided to tackle the problem there first by giving the people what they want.

An infusion of fiery root ginger, citrus zests and playful hibiscus results in a bright, uplifting rum guaranteed to enliven the soul. The premium label, designed by London agency KCD, is a fine work of art: the use of copper foil and of a gloss varnish pattern elevate the brand and beautifully bring to life the craftsmanship behind of the product.
