Marks and Spencers

I could write endless posts about how much I love Marks and Spencer's food hall. The packaging design is so lovely. It is certainly one of my favourite things about living in England, being able to shop in M&S food hall.

Whenever I travel I like to look in the local grocery stores and see different styles of food packaging and it's no different here in London. I have been known to wander around the aisles in M&S taking photos. 

At the moment they have some fantastic packaging for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. I was looking for some images of that to share when I stumbled upon the website of Debbie Powell who is a packaging designer who has done work not only for M&S, but also Tesco, Jamie Oliver and Carluccios. I love her style of illustration, have a look at her site. There's a link on the site to her blog and that's filled with lovely images.

So this post has turned into a bit of a M&S packaging design round up.I found out that a chap called Stuart Kolakovic was the designer of my favourite tea packaging. His website is full of gorgeous illustrations.

  1. I LOVE M&S-- when I was studying in London, it was definitely my grocery store of choice. Agreed on the packaging too-- I pretty much immediately followed your british packaging pinterest board, such a great idea!

  2. Hi Mary,
    There's just something sooo British about M&S :)

  3. Have you been to a m&s cafe before? The hot chocolates are divine! xx

  4. Perhaps there's a market you could assist them with *nudge, nudge*

    After all MN is your old stomping ground
