Good Design: Scholz and Friends

via here and here

I stumbled across Scholz & Friends while looking over Lovely Package's recap of the 2012 D&AD Awards Packaging Design Winners, and after playing around their site (which I never translated from German so I kind of just clicked things) I fell hard for their ear bud and ear plug packaging. Playing off of a simple music note and a volume control button, Scholz and Friends created two beautiful package designs that utilize a common every day item/symbol and transcend it to something entirely unique and special.
