Alien (1979): “Balaji Imperial” Cigarettes Pack Replica

Posted in Design, Physical Object with tags , , , , , on March 11, 2017 by Staff Writer

After a lot of on-and-off work, I’ve finally printed, cut and folded my first set of Balaji Imperial cigarettes replicas:

Here’s a sample of the files associated with this project:

I made multiple versions of the box art, and two versions of a hypothetical tax stamp as well. The package art shown in the big photo above is as close to screen-accurate as I can get, given the references. Some of the smaller text I had to guess at, and the art on the top flap is speculative as well.

The die-line was tricky as well, and still needs to be improved in places.

After finding the hi-res promo stills, I was able to read all the text on the front of this tag, and (after much needle-in-a-haystack searching) identify the airplane image as well:

Promo still on the left, my replica on the right.

I see the movie this afternoon, so I’m hoping the back side (if we ever see it) is identical. Maybe we’ll get a decent look at the other tags. Otherwise, there’s always the art book.

Apropos of nothing, I found these old replica checks I’d made some years ago:

Certainly not exact reproductions, but the price is right. Enjoy!

Just popped the two items I have in hand on eBay, if anyone’s looking for some inexpensive, obscure gifts for themselves or others:

“It was languid curiosity which first brought Stephen Jones to Rogers’ Museum… and he had strolled in one April day to see how disappointing he would find it. Oddly, he was not disappointed…”

Coming Soon: New Lovecraft Paper Paraphernalia!

Posted in Design, Physical Object with tags , , , , , on November 26, 2016 by Staff Writer

I’ve been designing some new, paper ephemera inspired by various HPL stories and creations:

  • Student ID blank
  • Two hotel luggage labels
  • Student union card
  • Fraternity membership card
  • Student club card
  • Two Three steamship baggage labels
  • Museum artifact postcard
  • Museum ticket

Waiting for stuff to come in the mail – Lots of excitement! All the result of many hours of work and research online. And there’s still one more business card which I have yet to get printed.

EDIT 11-27-2016: Ha ha! The two hotel labels have come in! Now to wait a week or more for the other six other jobs…

EDIT: 12-01-2016: Got the student IDs in the mail last night!

Appears to be a green, broad marker on bright yellow construction paper or poster board… That’s a pretty well-stocked store, for a town of about 12 people, tops. Maybe they get a lot of tourists passing through.
