Are You Smarter Than A Dinner Plate?

by Jamie Sanford on May 27, 2015

For the third year running, I developed the initial script for a Noritake animated short film. This year’s video is a parody of a popular game show, and is called Are You Smarter Than A Dinner Plate? I have embedded the final product below. If you cannot see the video, please click here.

If you’d like to see the previous videos, you can see The Plating Game here and The Plate Show here.

Cake Monkey Packaging – Brand Experience Project

by Jamie Sanford on May 21, 2015

Click here for all posts in the Brand Experience Project.

For my birthday last year, my lovely friend Mariel sent me a box of goodies from Cake Monkey. There were so many delicious things that I had to share them, I would have probably died from sugar intake otherwise!

Cake Monkey sends items that require refrigeration, so I took photos of the packaging when I opened the box. Please note that these were taken with the iPhone 5 – I have the 6 now and am very grateful for the camera upgrade.

An obvious option, the thermal bubble wrap lining the box.

The inner box is very cute and branded with a sticker and a gift note!

I’m guessing the iPhone could not focus on all of the shiny packaging. This was more annoying than anything else because it was super staticky and sticking to everything.

Some of the items are in clear plastic, and all have personalized stickers.

Other items were in aluminum foil (but somehow a prettier version that doesn’t get wrinkly like Reynolds Wrap).

The back contains information on what the item is and its ingredients. This is another small thing that could be improved. For $60 a box, these stickers should relay the same level of branding and attention to detail as the stickers on the front of these items. The text here is cramped and looks like it was thrown together in Word before printing. I certainly think printing these ingredient labels in bulk, with more attention to detail, would complete a much better presentation.

(Also, please find a better solution for packing than that shiny grass.)

I don’t have any photos of the items being eaten, but they were quite delicious and traveled well. I think they could be a bit less sweet in general, some of them were a one-way ticket to Sugartown, and for that reason, it is great that they are individual pieces. I would not recommend anyone eating more than one at a time.

Thank you again to Mariel!

Instagram Roundup #122

by Jamie Sanford on May 6, 2015

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Peeps = Instagram GOLD.

I posted this image of my tough siblings Robyn and Pete on National Siblings Day.

We bought this blue chair at an estate sale to replace the awkward zebra chair we’ve had for a few years. This chair had been in the house for about 30 years, and for 30 years before that, was in an office at Prudential.

I ate one piece of the tuna, it just wasn’t my bag. How beautiful is this though?

We had really wonderful weather when I was in and out of the city for the Tabletop Show at 41 Madison. You cannot beat this view, no matter how many times you see it.

More food, sorry. This burger was so beautiful that I had to. Also, delicious.

Then I went all sneaky to Florida for Mom’s birthday, and went to Nan’s house to surprise her too!

Mom and I got pedicures and then I baked a peach cobbler while she prepared shrimp. We had a lovely time.

We played Sequence, because it is what we do.

We also did some fishing in the backyard, because Mom and Dad have a lake back there, so why not? We throw our fish back because the gators need something to eat. We saw a gator right after taking this photo.

Connect with me on Instagram here.
