Thelma's is a warm cookie delivery business named in honor of the owner's great-grandma, famous for her snickerdoodle cookie recipe. The delivery box not only keeps the cookies warm but also looks like Grandma's oven and the cookies even come out of the box as if they were being removed from an oven. For an added touch, a few words of wisdom from Thelma are printed on the back of the box.

The unique sculptural composition for each flavor celebrates the inherent quality of the ingredients and the clean aesthetic delivers delight. From the joyful colors highlighting the flavor names and corresponding lids, to the simple type treatments, the overall package commands an unexpected and exciting presence within the frozen dessert section."
Rest in Pets sparked an interesting conversation between The Dieline team this morning. I had mixed feeling on this concept, the morbidity surrounding the idea of a "packaging" for our beloved pet. Once I read Mat Bogust (THINK Packaging)'s statement behind the concept, I understand the need for the product.

Give your furry friend a dignified farewell with a personalized, biodegradable casket."
"Day in, day out Mat Bogust lives and breaths packaging. From a cheeky little scamp of 17 to a now, rather respectful 32 year old he's been a structural packaging designer. Starting THINK Packaging 3 years ago, Mat's been available to agencies and new businesses around the globe as their very own packaging ninja and got him thinking…"I wonder if I could produce awesome, game changing work for myself this time?"
An idea rattled around his head for a little while and eventually made its way into the ideas book, then onto CAD. Hand cutting the first prototype, all who saw it instantly knew that this wasn’t just an idea now, this had to happen. Rest In Pets was created…"
