David-Louis – New Packaging Design.

David-Louis Presentation Box

For 2009 we are launching our new range of David-Louis packaging.

I will be up loading the whole range of packaging to the David-Louis website in the coming week so though I would give you a glimpse of it here on the blog first – tell us what you think.

It is what we call ‘David-Louis’ blue and made from sustainable resources. Works like a match box, sliding open smoothly and elegantly to reveal a delicious coaster, bottle opener or salt shaker.

As ever I am looking forward to launching these, we tested them over the last month in our shop ‘The David-Louis Project’ @ Artfull Expression and they went down fantastically.

If you feel inclined please do post a comment.

David-Louis 2.0′ing and growing…

As Roots Manuva said ‘we are up to everything and into everything’ at the moment, The shop in the jewellery quarter in expanding now and we have take on a budding designer maker ‘ Clare Victoria Pardoe’ is now managing the retail out let which is called.. You guessed it ‘ The David Louis project AT Artful Expression’.

I am hoping the new appointment will create a new profile for the shop and attract both customers and new designer makers as suppliers. The shop is in the Jewellery Quarter at 23 Warstone Lane, B18 6JQ – drop in any time and I’ll give you the scoop on each maker we stock and the history of the local area – just ask for David-Louis

The corporate side of the business, Gifts of Distinction is growing and we have introduce new Computer Aided Design skill base with the taking on of an intern, Shah ALi, a local student on his gap year – this is really exciting and attracting high profile clients which due to discretion and professional practice I am unable to mention specifically….

I see on my way to work today they are filming the advert for the new Jewellery Quarter (Web site not launched yet!!! – but is definitely on the way) TV campaign for the run up to Christmas, so keep an eye on your TV and don’t forget to mention the advert WHEN you visit the Jewellery Quarter on the run up to Christmas….. You will visit the Jewellery Quarter won’t you… yes you will :-)

I will finish off now just saying that I am commissioning the production of another video at the moment featuring our new Spaghetti Measuring Device have a look the product- its too cool for cats.

Ooops – the reason I called this post 2.0ing and more is we are attempting to link Delicious, our facebook account, our blog and twitter (Twitter ID ‘DavidLouisDsign’) together – so you can Link, FB, blog and tweet us any time (in theory).
