Vintage Ducats Milk Packaging

I’ve decided today is all about color, I’m feeling in a vibrant mood. I think I came across these milk packages on FFFFound which lead me to a site called Re:collection, which describes itself as “an online archive of Australian graphic design: 1960 – 1980.” It’s a really great site filled with some really wonderful items, but these milk boxes really caught my attention.

Could you imagine buying milk as a 7 year old and having these pop up in front of you? I think I would have been trying to paint masterpieces or redesigning the school newspaper at an early age. It just goes to show that you can sneak good design into the most (seemingly) ordinary objects.
