“Joe’s Tea Company is the brainchild of Joe Kinch, a former tea supply chain manager, who identified an opportunity to create a new product that combines high-quality leaf blends from Sri Lanka, with an interesting twist, to appeal to the newfound and more adventurous younger tea drinker: “Its niche is offering organic fine teas without fuss, or any of the bravado or pretentiousness normally associated with premium products.”

“‘Wonderfully unusual’ non-alcoholic adult beverage ZEO has been given a spectacular brand expression by integrated brand design agency Blue Marlin.
“The flowing form of our structural design plays with your senses, like ZEO itself. Its curious curves unpredictably refract light, enigmatically disguising the physical shape of the bottle in a low-lit bar or nightclub setting. The intangibility of the new design encapsulates ZEO’s mysterious mixology and unique sensorial effects in a bottle,” says Blue Marlin’s head of structure, Guy Williams.
“We kept the design simple, to allow ZEO’s unique bottle shape to do the talking,” explains Blue Marlin London creative director Simon Pendry, “The minimalistic black, gold and white graphic design gleams with sophistication, communicating essential information with perfectly premium appeal.”

“Our goal with the packaging design for Goshen Coffee was twofold – we wanted to create a distinct look that represented our client’s uncompromising attitude, while simultaneously looking nothing like other coffee brands on display in the local St. Louis market. The labels are actually stickers that are affixed when the bags are filled.”

“More is a premium fruit juice which contains high percentage of real fruit extracts, therefore the name “More” was selected for the brand. The plus (+) icon on the package is used as a symbol to indicate the rich fruit ingredient of More. The plus changes color according to the flavor. White is used all over the package. Plus and white emphasizes the health and triggers the perception of hygene. White is also differentiating the package of More from the other fruit juices on the market shelves and putting it forward. The simplicity of the package is an advantage. Illustrations on the package are effective but not distorting the simplicity.”
