Retrospect

2011.09.22

I've been looking for these ever since Brittany told me about them last semester!!

They all have a different aspect that helps your brain/mind/concentration, etc.

I like their bottle design, but really, they remind of a project I did last semester.

They are a lot like my Graphic Design 1 rebrand for NeuroSky.
I developed a logotype, a lettermark, a representational mark,
and a nonrepresentational mark (not shown out of lameness and shame it brings me)

The similarities are to be expected. The product is focusing on the same subject matter. Your brain.

My project/client last semester, NeuroSky, develops technology for remote controls though the use of your brainwaves. It's pretty crazy cool stuff. I don't know if I've mentioned it already. In fact, I think I've explained it so much that I feel like it's in a post here somewhere, where I'm complaining about how frustrating it was to do force connections with brains/mind/thought.
Needless to say, it was it challenging project to me. I was a bit unhappy feeling like i was not quite hitting the mark, and I couldn't quite grasp what it was I was doing "wrong." I guess that's why I'm Art Direction now and not Graphic Design. I'm looking back at the finals now, realizing I haven't shared them yet. I don't feel excessively proud of them. I actually don't want to talk about it much. Not that I resent it, but I don't have much to say. I feel... "meh." I think I may have just gone at it all wrong. I think it's because I was trying to understand something I hadn't done before while doing it at the same time. I don't know.

But towards the end of that Graphic Design semester, Brittany told me about this drink that reminded her of my logos. I thought, "Cool!" And wanted to buy the drink. But I couldn't find it ANYWHERE. I texted her over the summer inquiring where she saw it and she said Albertsons.
oh.
:/
Our summer road trip that encompassed 6 states from Texas to Indiana had me looking at all the gas stations for "trendy" drinks like this. I didn't think it would be hard to find it.
I was wrong.
Out of 6 states (one the size of France, aka Texas) and all their gas stations, I found it in 1 station in one place.
Los Amigos gas station getting off of I-35 S.
For reals?!?!
Yeah, never saw another one again.

Until now! So I bought up the only 3 they had in my trip to Albertson's and their Close-out Sale where "everything must go! Up to 70% off!!" I don't think I saw anything that was 70% off. Still, it being my first trip into an Albertson's, I was mildly impressed. Sure their aisles could use more than a big number 8 at the top with no indication of what was in that aisles, but it was 'aight. I guess I just like my Krogers because of familiarity... just... I won't be able to find any Neuro drink there.

You can bet I'm keeping these bottles! ;)

yessi222 I can't remember if we have an Albertson's here... I want those drinks now. The way the label is written makes it sound like miracle juice *.*
