In my quest to find branding and packaging projects that feature handmade goods, I’m often surprised at the discoveries I uncover on Behance. Take this project for Filamento, for instance. Designed by Guadalajara, Mexico-based Menta, the branding for Filamento pays homage to the beauty of the filament that gives light bulbs their glow. What’s astonishing about the design is just how simple and effective it is.
I’m hoping to have more information about Filamento’s handmade lighting at some point in the future, at which time I will update this post with the proper links. Until then, you can follow this talented team of designers on Instagram. Be sure to check out Menta’s portfolio. There are more treasures to be discovered there as well.
