“The Kingdom Animalia, a line of wooden animals and their packaging, were all made in the USA. The boxes are made of recycled cardboard, and offset printed. One element of the design system is that there are a few facts about the real life animal on the box. There are 15 different animals in this collection. They are made of sustainably harvested wood and are solid maple. The finishes on the animals (including the paint, stain, and beeswax sealer) are all non-toxic and very low/no VOC. All of the finishes are also made in the USA. They were laser cut and hand finished. They are meant to be decoration for a nursery, bookshelf, and the like. They are not, however, toys for children.”

“Introducing a beer into an already saturated market a difficult task, but when the beer brand has such a rich history it’s a little easier to distinguish it from the competition.
Retaining the brands extensive elements; bold blackletter logo treatment, the staircase icon, and deep crimson red kept the familiarity within the brand. But updating and incorporating new elements; such as the diagonal rising label that mirrors the upward motion of the staircase logo, brings a contemporary feel to the traditional brew.”

“The packaging is for Buzzy’s, a boutique gourmet candy shop that targets women. They wanted a feminine approach in selling their best selling line of peanut brittle, which includes original, white chocolate dipped, milk chocolate dipped, and dark chocolate dipped. Buzzy’s uses 7 ingredients to make their original peanut brittle recipe.
I approached the design with the idea of “simple ingredients made with love,” using romance to woo women. The line of packaging tells a story of peanut meeting sugar and how their relationship develops into the 4 stages of love: attraction (original), romance (white chocolate), passion (milk chocolate), and intimacy (dark chocolate). Since the packaging is about a story unfolding, the packaging has a preforrated tab to reveal the bright red lining–a color associated with love, passion, and romance. The die cuts give a glimps of the product and are associated with the line graphics per assortment.”

“Yauatcha, a high-end Chinese tea house and dim sum restaurant, is the concept of celebrated restauranteur, Alan Yau. In order to set the brand on a new direction, Yau identified the opportunity for a range of tea related products, providing a more retail-biased offering alongside the main restaurant activity.
After our initial task of creating a new logotype and core identity elements, MadeThought were charged with the creation of a bespoke packaging approach for a diverse array of products ranging from exquisite patisserie and rare teas, through to ceramic tea sets and scented candles.
Delicate patterning became a uniting aspect of this solution and also served to underline the oriental nature of the brand. Sourcing the very best packaging manufacturers and paying extraordinary attention to detail has resulted in products that offer the customer an additional level of discovery and an exciting and indulgent experience.”
