Really nice work from Mike Kelly, a recent graduate of the Portfolio Center in Atlanta:
Student Spotlight: FIT Graduates
This week we'll be featuring a selection of work from folks that are graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology's design program. I'll put up the photos first and then have the corresponding information about the projects grouped below.
1. Chakra by Aja Eggleston
"Chakra is a brand of enriched chocolate bars with healing properties. The main focus of the design is an illustration of ganesha's rat—a spiritual symbol who has the ability to destroy every obstacle, just like chocolate."
2. Absinthe by Couvet by Alexis Champa
"Absinthe, in terms of history and experience, is a pretty nifty beverage. The goal was to create a brand that compares to the experience and easily appeals to the people and market who are currently buying it. It comes in three grades which reflect the percent of alcohol."
3. Absinthe by Couvet by Amy Sprague
"Couvet, a line of premium Swiss absinthe, honors its lineage as a bohemian drink of choice. Capturing a feel of old world elegance while subtly suggesting its potent and forbidden past, Couvet’s sophisticated mystery piques the craving for refinement and unruliness in us all."
4. SSV by Cassie Garcia
"SSV is a new line of auto maintenance equipment for the young car fanatic. I wanted the packaging to show that it is the most premium product for your car and will improve its performance."
Student Spotlight: Children's Tea
Absolutely adorable packaging designed and sent in by Sara Strand, a packaging design student in Sweden:
"Children’s Tea is the perfect choice for the young ones. All ingredients are organic and naturally caffeine-free. Children’s Tea comes in three different flavours, Sunny Orange, Red Berries and Wild Berries."

Student Spotlight: Sprezzatura
"The main purpose of the University of Kansas' final graphic design project was to design a brand strategy and visual identity program that will reflect the direction(s) and purpose of a company as it relates to it's publics. I focused on creating a Men's Fashion Boutique called Sprezzatura. I wanted to reflect the underlying debonair feel of the 1950's. Sprezzatura is (adj.) a certain nonchalance, as to conceal all art and make whatever one does or says appear to be without effort and almost without any thought about it.
I took inspiration from old jazz records, Madmen (TV show), old advertisements from the 1950s and fine fabrics/patterns. It was a dynamic project that touched all bases of creating a brand. I wanted to share it because I am always so interested in the Student Spotlight category of TheDieline.com. I find it so helpful for students to see what other schools are producing."

Student Spotlight: Lattina
"A pack is not just a container. It's a medium. Even when it contains the most common of products: milk.
We rethought how could a normal milk package could be. A pack is not just a container. It could contain, hold, protect something, but firstly the package is a medium. We can deliver messages to our customers. We can make people think about it writing and showing the issues directly on the pack."
