“Last year my wife, kids and I started a garden. We planted a bunch of Jalapeño peppers. They grew so well we didn’t know what to do with all the ripe peppers and I didn’t want them to go to waste so I created a sauce. I had no idea that it would work but it did. Family and friends would come over and I would have it on the table with meals in an old Shoyu ( soy sauce ) bottle. They liked it so much that they requested their own bottles. I started making larger and larger batches and couldn’t keep up with the requests. At that point I knew it was time to go bigger. Now my immediate family is addicted to it along with my extended family and friends. Seriously one bottle will be drained by the end of some meals.”

“My friend and I decided to make marmalade from orange, lemon and lime. We peeled the fruits for hours, we boiled them with sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. It was so delicious at the end, so it deserved some proper package design.”

“Pereg Gourmet Natural Foods launched its Quinoa-Rice-Couscous line, “superfood” mixes that combine major health benefits with international flavors. With this line, Pereg exceeded the normal bounds of wholesome flavorful food production and challenged Squat Design to create packaging that has a savory, tasty appeal, visually communicates the natural, nourishing qualities of the products and stimulates the consumer.
Squat Design’s expert art direction unified the visions of graphic designers, the photographer and stylist to create artful packages that stand out on the shelf. Our designers opted for recycled, raw-type paper to express the natural feel of the product and our technical team worked intimately with the printer, to resolve the issues of complicated printing techniques, in order to realize the desired design.”

“Originally called PS-Sweets, this custom sugar-cookie maker was ready for a complete rebrand to spur new business nationwide and position the company for the future. We created a new name, color palette and more elevated look and feel (via letterpress printing primarily) for the packaging and identity that embodied the premium fun of the product. To keep costs containable for this small company, we elected for a ready-made box and put effort into a custom band to enclose it.”

“The brief was to create packaging for sardines coming in 3 different varieties: sardines in tomato sauce, in olive oil and spring water. We wanted the look to be very minimal, modern and recognizable as one family of products – which was the main goal.”

“Visual identity and packaging to Di Napoli – a restaurant and take away as well. The identity is inspired by the biggest passion in Napoli. Soccer. But also the Italian traditions and Italian’s sense of fashion and style. The light blue logo is a shape between a napkin and the letter ‘N’.”

Brief: Sugar Daddy’s bakery is famous for its unique cupcakes. Chefs are constantly inventing new recipes and adding it to the menu every month. The bakery wanted this uniqueness to reflect in their packaging too.
Idea: We quantified what the taste buds of our customers experienced. So for example if a cake that offered a surprise in every bite weighed 1200 grams, the packaging would read, ‘1200 grams of surprise’. We created 11 different packaging designs that were fresh, engaging and playful by using interesting typography and illustration.
Results: Customers always had a sweet smile when they saw the one-word description illustrated on the packaging. They even started collecting these cake boxes and were constantly on the lookout for new cake box designs.
