Burger King has joined the many companies incorporating the season into their product packaging. The festive release, along with the Winter Whopperland menu will be available in participating Burger Kings in the US, UK, Latin America, and Asia. It features coffee cups covered in reindeer and mistletoe, Santa’s belly-inspired sandwich wraps, and joyful to-go bags all designed by Turner Duckworth. Still using the recognizable BK design and graphics, the holiday packaging adds a dash of humor and joy into each customer’s order.
"Celebrating the season, coffee-cups feature tree lights, a red-nosed reindeer and mistletoe. Santa’s belly inspired the Whopper sandwich wraps and a few holiday-themed characters were developed for the always-animated Chicken Fries boxes. The range is all wrapped up in joyful takeaway bags."

We completed a range of designs for The Vineyard Belfast- starting with their Brand identity, then printed bottles for their Growlers (2 sizes) and more recently Gift cards and Wallets- we just received the above range of promotional shots of all from them, they were so good we just had to share them!

Thanks again to Karen and the guys at The Vineyard, looking forward to more projects in the coming months!
Be sure to keep an eye out in the shops for the redesigned Tayto packaging that we have been involved with over the past few months. As well as changing the design Tayto have selected a heavier film giving the packaging a better feel as well as over all look- we have also strengthened a couple of the colours to really make them jump off the shelf!
It was quite a tough brief to change every element of the actual famous pack but to keep them still very familiar to possibly every single person in N Ireland!
AS well as the new packets we have also re illustrated Mr Tayto- giving him a range of emotions and poses.

The first boxes of Kelloggs clocks arrived this week- words cant describe how exciting it was to see our designs and packaging all come together and be ready to ship to retailers across Ireland and the UK.
I had them for the a business networking event and have to say they were very well received by the visitors to our stand over the evening.
Wishing Nigel the very best of luck with these items plus the many other lines that we are continuing to develop for him.

We have just completed a great range of Porridge Pots for Glen Oats- the brief was to keep a traditional feel but to funk it up with a modern twist!
These have just been launched in Germany and we are looking forward to seeing how they sell.
If you want to see more about this brand and more detail on the other aspects of design we completed for this have a look at the portfolio section of our site.
Wishing Hayley and the Team great success on this product and looking forward to working together in future.
Taylor Simpson dreamed up the use of genuine deer antlers in the place of standard handlebars. Interestingly, apart from the natural asymmetry of the horns, the general form of them bears quite a bit in common with a range of more conventional components -- minus the pointy offshoots.
The designer enhanced this eccentric concept by using recycled metal, epoxy and paint to sharpen the product up. Special packaging was also designed for the Moniker Cycle Horns to accommodate their broad and awkward shape.
Love the concept and the execution.
We have had a recent encounter with a famous little bear, who is making a long awaited return.
Another exciting licensing project, we designed packaging and promotional material, plus organised the design layout files for the client to produce a range of layered wood products.
The fact we had good experience of dealing with licensing approval meant that the process was fairly straightforward, we then also helped design a show stand and promotional polo shirts for a recent trade show.
Wishing Tirquin Ltd the very best with this exciting project.

I have to say it caused much talk on the Today Fm show as well as across many offices in Ireland, but when Ray and Mairead decided to have cheese made from bacteria found on their own bodies- it got us thinking about the obvious packaging requirements!Read more about this here:
Harvey Nichols Ad Campaign Asks Shoppers To Spend A Little On Themselves
“Sorry I Spent It On Myself”
Adam&eve/DDB has launched a range of budget products for Harvey Nichols aimed at Christmas shoppers who’d rather treat themselves than their loved ones.
The ‘Sorry I Spent It On Myself’ range, available in stores and online from Wednesday, includes a series of low value gifts in minimal red and white packaging.
Shoppers can purchase a packet of ‘authentic Lincolnshire gravel’ for £1.61:
Inspired by all the growths of facial hair, we thought we would invent something to make the month of Movember that little bit easier to get through.
If your Dad, Husband, Son, Brother or Friend has started down the path of the bearded and moustached ones, then perhaps you could buy them some Tash Wash to ensure those bristles are kept in tip top condition- then again seeing as this is a fictional product by us at Blackthorn- dig deep and instead sponsor your buddy again!!
Well done to all taking part, looking forward to seeing how they all develop!
