Pentagram‘s DJ Stout designs Marlboro packaging that adheres to the new Senate approved legislation banning colorful cigarette advertising and store displays. Stout suggests “that to comply with the new crackdown, cigarette manufacturers like Marlboro should embrace the restrictions and make cigarettes look truly dangerous. This, of course, will still appeal to a core group of smokers.”

I can’t say that this will help me want to smoke, but I am definitely into the evil tarot card illustrations on the packaging.

  1. How about car wrecks on beer and liquor packaging? Maybe obese children on McDonalds packaging? Tortured animals on cosmetic packaging?
