I like Pentagram’s take on cigarettes. Everyone who smokes knows it will eventually kill them, but it doesn’t stop them from smoking. They say, embrace it and make the entire pack a warning label …
My grandmother used to have a cigarette box that she kept near her telephone so that she could smoke while she talked to her friends. The box had the words Coffin Nails on it. She had such a cute sense of humor.
If she were still with us, I think she would really get a kick out of this anti-smoking package design by Alexander Andrews.
A great concept. If I still smoked I’d want it – a friendly little reminder of every nail in my coffin.
