Bombay Sapphire Self-Illuminating Package by Yehrin Tong

Webb deVlam has created packaging for gin brand Bombay Sapphire that illuminates when the box is lifted off of the shelves. Absolutely brilliant (pardon the pun, but it’s appropriate here).

The packaging features a vector illustration by Yehrin Tong that has been produced in electroluminescent ink. The animated effect is created with the help of an electric current from a small battery at the bottom of the pack and a hidden mechanical switch is triggered when the packaging is picked up from the shelf. And Voila! –

Let there be light.

Yehrin Tong has done an incredible job injecting new energy (literally) into this established brand.

Work has encompassed billboards, taxi cabs, elaborate repeat patterns and embroidery prints for fashion, as well as typographic cover and editorial illustrations.Yehrin’s work is complex and intricate. Simple and minimal rarely come into her vocabulary.

(Video) How Ink Is Made

Making ink is an art that requires craftsmanship and care

Every wonder where all of that beautiful colour comes from when some printer spits out one of your designs? Well, this marvellous video takes us into the heart of an ink factory to show us first hand.
Set to Alfred Brendel’s lyrical Piano Concerto No.5 in E flat major, it shows the process from top to bottom.

It’s long (8:52 sec – but very interesting)
