Swan Matches Packaging

Very nice, IMHO anyway, packaging for Swan matches. And that's despite them including the dreaded "mod roundel".

Yowzer!
Big, bold, modern and colourfull whilst still retaining their brand identity... still, I wonder what prompted the concept of a limited edition run?

Probably nothing more complicted than the opportunity to make a few headlines, and shift a few more boxes of matches.

Looking at it again, I think I've seen something similar done for Marmite…

Hmmm… more on a Warhol vibe… but it just sparked something off in my memory…
