Clean, Simple, Minimal Stamped Packaging for Japanese Honey

I haven’t written about packaging in a long time, as it can easily get lost in the massiveness of art galleries and openings and installations.

I was pretty thrilled to find the Things Organized Neatly tumblr a few months ago, but only recently came to the realization that the best of the best out of those knolling photos were all taken by Portland-based photographer Jim Golden.
