Hello, Coles!

A couple of snaps courtesy of one of my favourite blogs Print and Pattern today, from UK supermarkets Waitrose and Marks & Spencer. Nothing special, just a couple of things from their Christmas range. I look at this thoughtful, well-designed packaging, lovely product, and then at Coles, the main supermarket in Australia, and wonder why their packaging can't be anything like this. Hello Coles??? Design has moved on since 1982.

But I can't complain about Coles today. My little boy won the colouring-in competition at our local branch and we went in to pick up his $15 gift voucher, yay! Really, the staff at our local Coles couldn't be better, they are so lovely and fun, it's just sad to see such a poor range of products after experiencing UK supermarkets for many years.
