The juxtaposition of new and old is clear here. Inside Villette Park, the Argonaute, a real 1950s Russian submarine was disarmed in 1982 and is on display with graf work on the outside. I wish I had more pics of the graffiti around Paris!

The Davinci Audio Tour

The Davinci Audio Tour

This made me a little sad...to see this inside the Lourve. But who am I to judge, I read the book.


Ritz - Paris

Ritz - Paris

This was right outside Peacock Alley inside the Ritz, if you need a hat worth 3,000 euros - then Peacock Alley can hook you right up. This display was BEAUTIFUL though and I had to snap a few pictures of it.


Food Display

Food Display

Out on the street in Paris and we saw this display in a window - made me think about how we display food in our country.

Find this trend called out here very interesting from the portable, hyper-life driven need state.


The Obvious

This consumer insight company had some key trends, one of them was "time saving" apparently this is news to the rest of the world.


Sensory Appeal

Sensory Appeal

Saw a lot of products and trend information that confirmed that we are on the right path calling out "Sensory Appeal"

couldn't help but think this packaging looks tremendously like something I would hang on a tree...very novel - was easy to drink out of.

Snack cheese

Snack cheese

This little cheese wheel was displayed in a larger cheese wheel with a really low stand made for children to feel comfortable walking up to the display and partaking. See the little cartoon character on the front...I have no idea what his legs are supposed to be.


Plastic tubs and glass jars ARE EVERYWHERE.

Plastic tubs and glass jars ARE EVERYWHERE.

Layered mousses and yogurts are prolific. These layered desserts have really beautiful displays and are easy to use and store.


Aloe Vera Drink

Aloe Vera Drink

Yeah...Judy said this was in case you burned the roof of your mouth from a really hot dish. I actually have no idea what aloe vera tastes like.


Did you say fresh?

Shows exactly how the milking process works

Shows exactly how the milking process works

thought this was an interesting picture as the company that had it displayed actually had a video of their process from grass to glass as it where (was a milk company) running on a loop on several flat screen sets.
