Art + Design + Food + Drink

Packaging design love: Greenhouse Juice Co.

One of the things I’m hoping to accomplish with my new blogging schedule is taking the time to post about graphic design I love. Despite the fact that I design stuff for a living, I’ve kind of shied away from posting about commercial art here on the blog. My hope is to focus primarily on print, packaging, and other tangible objects, but my only real guideline is that the end product was designed for a consumer market.

I’m pretty sure I discovered Toronto-based Greenhouse Juice Co. through Anabela’s (gorgeous) Instagram feed. However it happened, my eyes glazed over as soon as I started looking at their bottles, and then a fresh juice company had a new admirer…a mere 500 miles outside their delivery zone. Maybe someday I’ll have a chance to actually try one of these delicious-looking juices, but for the time being, I’m happy to just look at these lovely bottles! Greenhouse Juice Co.’s brand identity was designed by Sarah Dobson.

OK, packaging design aside, do you not feel like drinking ALL of these things today? I know I do. I keep looking at the subtle ombre of the Piloto and wishing a bottle of it would materialize on my desk. I mean…Brazil nut milk and cold brew coffee? How could that not be delicious?! Gimme. That Pink Milk blend is fascinating, too. I can’t even really imagine what it tastes like. A cool, creamy borscht, perhaps?

Even if you, like me, live too far from Greenhouse Juice Co. to be a real customer, I still recommend following them on Instagram. Their beautiful photos make me want to drink more juices, which is a good thing. They have a really lovely blog, too, with articles about wellness and tons of great recipes, most of them vegan. This wild mushroom and leek stew is so up my alley.

Of course, if you do live in Toronto (lucky you!), you can visit Greenhouse Juice Co. in person and drink as much juice as your wallet can handle! All of their locations look super cute.

    So beautifully clean and yummy looking! The Piloto would be my first pick, I live for iced coffee. I would never have guessed the ingredients of The Misfit, it’s so coral. I would’ve expected the grapes to make it more purple, though lighter due to the celery and lime. Perhaps lilac, but never coral.

    That little marble table with the bird on it is scratching me where I itch.

    I’m hoping to go to Toronto this fall for work and will definitely be seeking out these juices. Thanks for posting about them!! Enjoying the new blog schedule too.

    Really beautiful designs. I have a good friend who lives in Toronto, and I had her check out Bookhou for me when you mentioned it a long time ago. (And luckily got a great bag out of it!) I’ll pass this along as well.

    I live in Toronto and had no idea this place existed – thanks for the post! I’ll definitely go check it out.

    I like it so much that you post everyday now, so I thought I should write you a word of appreciation. It has been ages since I started following door sixteen ( I have a very vibrant memory of me awake in the middle of the night following your twitter and instagram feeds waiting for hurricane Sandy to hit, although I live on the other side of the world). However, I don’t think I ever posted a comment here and that’s a shame, because you are a constant source of inspiration for me and propably the blogger I mostly care about supporting.
    Anyway, I was especially excited about the regular posts on graphic design, and this first one is exactly what I hoped for. Clean, beautiful design that really accentuates the product.
    Thank you.

    Hi Anna. Speaking of beautifully packaged things, how about a SMEG update. Would you buy it again? How’s the freezer? I have no issue with the size but am curious as to how it actually works. The fridge we have right now freezes everything.

      Hi Wendy, the only problem we’ve had with the fridge was a misaligned door hinge, which we were able to easily fix ourselves. Aside from that, it’s really just a basic fridge/freezer—no frills, no features. The fridge temp stays where it should in all seasons, and the freezer (provided you stay on top of keeping it defrosted—it’s not frost-free, something that may be a bit of a shock to anyone who’s only lived with contemporary fridges) stays where it should, too!

    I hoard these bottles and fill them with my own juices and spices.

    I was just in Toronto for a conference and fell in love with some posters of all things. The designers are a firm called Doublenaut. Here’s a link to the posters in question: http://shopkidicarus.com/webstore/posters-bellwoods-brewery

    Sorry tor the typo above- meant to say some poster for a local brewery of all things. (Tried their beer too- it was delicious)

    Hi Anna!

    Thanks for this lovely post. I’m so glad you like the project—I am the designer of Greenhouse’s Brand Identity System. My website is currently under construction, but I would love it if you could include a credit here.

    All the best,
    Sarah

      Hi Sarah! Done. I never got a reply from Greenhouse when I asked who the designer was (and I couldn’t find any info on their website), so I’m very glad you commented. 🙂
