What Polish brand owners are looking for in design

twitter : @ceepackaging

Agnieszka Czarnecka of Krakow based Art and Craft Brand Solutions explains what in her opinion Polish brand owners are looking for in terms of design.

This film was made at the Packaging Innovations trade fair in Warsaw on 28 April 2009.

My channel is one of the most prolific from Poland. With almost one film per day, one may be forgiven for thinking I do nothing else but I do have a day job as well. I have produced around 1,000 original films, most in English but also in Polish, French, Italian, Spanish and the occasional hint of German and Hebrew. My big interest in life is travel and history but I have also placed films on other subjects

Please feel free to ask questions in the public area or to comment on things you disagree with. Sometimes there are mistakes because I speak without preparation. If I see the mistakes myself, I make this clear in the text. Please also leave a star rating!

There are a number of films here on the packaging industry. This is because I am the publisher of Central and Eastern European Packaging — – the international platform for the packaging industry in this region focusing on the latest innovations, trends, design, branding, legislation and environmental issues with in-depth profiles of major industry achievers.

Most people may think packaging pretty boring but it possibly effects your life more than you really imagine!

Central and Eastern European Packaging examines the packaging industry throughout this region, but in particular in the largest regional economies which are Russia, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Austria. That is not to say that the other countries are forgotten, they are not, but obviously there is less going on. However the fact that there are so many travel related films here is not from holidays but from business trips attending trade fairs around the region. Every packaging trade fair is a new excuse to make another film!

In 1997 I founded Polish Business News .There are a number of business related films here and I intend to do many more on CRM (customer relations management).

My blog can be found via and and contains background information and more details of many of my films. This information is in English.

Wake up and Taste the Tea with Tea Expert Tracy Stern

Tea expert Tracy Stern is steeping tea into more than a hot commodity. With fabulous flavors, packaging and decor, SALONTEA is another world of luxury and organic aroma. Tracy Stern’s tea isn’t limited to the teacup. Watch Tracy whip up some Chai tea infused pancakes with sautéed bananas and granola, a sure way to start the day.

Tip: Chai tea is the perfect “wake-up” tea. It has caffeine and a distinctively sweet and peppery flavor; it’s energizing for those trying to wean themselves off of coffee.
Technique: Tea should be steeped for 1 1/2 minutes for a weak tea and 3-4 minutes for a heartier brew.
Trick: Keep a small container of raw sugar mixed with the loose chai leaves. This “tea-infused sugar” can be used for baking and preparing sauces to add a spicy-sweet flavor.
Tip: Loose chai leaves can also be used as an ingredient in rubs for meats.

Chai Tea Pancakes by Tracy Stern

Makes 8 servings


2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups buttermilk
3 large eggs, separated
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. ground SALONTEA chai
Maple syrup for plating
Yogurt for plating
Granola for plating


1. Whisk together flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

2. Add to the dry mixture, buttermilk, 3 egg yolks, and the vanilla. Whisk until smooth. The batter should be nice and thick.

3. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to beat 3 egg whites until soft peaks form. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar to the egg whites and beat until stiff, but not dry.

4. Fold the egg whites into the batter and then fold in the SALONTEA Chai tea.

5. Spray a griddle or a large heavy skillet with cooking spray (keeping the spray on hand for when your surface starts to stick). Heat over medium-low heat.

6. Working in batches, pour the batter, about 3 tablespoons at a time, onto your griddle or skillet. Cook until the pancakes are golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

7. Transfer pancakes to warmed plates. Layer pancakes with vanilla yogurt.

8. Cut off edges to make a perfect square.

9. Serve, topped with syrup, another dollop of vanilla yogurt and granola.
