“Friendship Dairies needed a way to reach 100% of their target audience. How? By bringing a little color and sass to the dairy case. With packaging becoming the new POS, especially when it comes to clean stores, we decided to amplify Friendship’s fun personality at the dairy case to a point where even their competitors’ consumers couldn’t help but love ‘em. With a sophisticated package redesign, Friendship was able to elevate their brand’s personality, as well as shopability—filling an unmet need in the cottage cheese category.
We went directly to the source and used qualitative and quantitative testing to ask consumers what was most important to them when shopping. As a result, we were able to give them exactly what they wanted. Sassy lid and tub discovery lines were also added to introduce a fun, witty dialogue at shelf, and to help differentiate from competitors with Friendship’s “all natural” stance.”

“burst* created a new identity, packaging, website and promotional material for the hand made chocolatiers Cocoa Loco. The challenge within the design process was to communicate the premium quality of the chocolates while retaining the playful character at the heart of the brand. Through the combination of a colourful logo, strong typography and a slight retro touch burst* created a strongly recognisable and elegant identity that made Cocoa Loco’s passionate founders proud and even more creative than before.”

“Hangar 1 is made in California using artisanal methods including fresh fruit infusions and distillation in Holstein Stills. It is this meticulous and artisanal process that inspired Hangar One’s newest packaging line, featuring an apothecary-style bottle with embossed measurements along the side and a black stopper cap- reminiscent of a measuring chemistry beaker.
While the scientific design of the bottle lends itself to another era, the sleek shape and unique look render it decidedly more modern.
The textured labels are all printed in a distinctive design, giving it a crafted feel with a small story about each flavor variety. The labels also feature an embossed aircraft logo along with hand-drawn visuals, including fruit used, for each offering.”

“We have just brought out a new range of cups and plates that come packed in reusable packaging. The idea was to make the packaging so pretty and in such good quality that not only does it protect the product, an not only is it so pretty that you don’t have to wrap it to give it as a gift – but you also want to keep it for storing other things! The insert can be removed and the box is there for you to store whatever you have that needs storing, paper, pens, toys or any little bits that you have lying around.
There are 3 ranges; Tingleby, Harvest and Familjen. I will send you the ranges separately. In this e-mail I will attached Familjen. I hope you like! Please let me know should you want any more information!”

“For its 2012 holiday gift, branding firm Up Inc sent clients a handcrafted bottle of traditional-method sparkling wine. And, since printing on glass was a novel experiment, two custom packages were created—each featuring a playful name, festive holiday messaging and light-hearted design.
Bottles were silk-screened with silver-metallic ink (requiring six full days to dry), and protected in paper-wrapped shipping tubes—also designed to accent the contents within. All tubes were sealed with personalized labels, adding a friendly finishing touch.”
