Design consultancy Antrepo recently experimented with a project that tested the effect of minimizing the graphics utilized on popular products in a market crowded with visual clutter. The end result is an interesting foray into reinterpreting popular products that maintain their brand essence while doing away with all of the unnecessary pomp that marketers feel they need for their item to stand out off the shelf. You can see the resultant product studies at Antrepo’s blog but also at their Flickr site as well.
