“Gusto is a fictional family-run food company specialising in slow food (food that is ethical, environmentally friendly and often organic). The packaging design (letterpress, hand-lettering and a natural beige paper texture) reflects the homemade, natural goodness of the contents, a pasta range and complimentary pasta sauce range. The repetition of the rosette hints at the merits involved in purchasing the product – recyclable/reusable packaging, healthy food, plus the gentle impact on the environment and fair pay received by the farmers and people involved in producing the end-product.”

“Our approach was to challenge packaging design in this market, currently saturated with uninspiring health food brands and larger supermarket ‘own label’ varieties who suffer from a lack of personality and brand appeal. Clive’s new range challenges the competition in this area and stands apart from anything else on the market through clear differentiation — in both packaging and product.
“Inspiration came directly from the product itself,” explains Blair Thomson, Creative Director. “The basic hand-drawn elements are abstract expressions of the dips and their ingredients. Bold use of colour and shape differentiates between flavours. The overall result is a striking, distinctive on-shelf presence.”

Boulder Colorado based Justin’s Nut Butters produces small-batch, natural and organic nut butters. TDA’s design brief stated: signal brand’s combined “culinary,” natural, and fun qualities. From this they created all new packaging with the marketing challenges of increasing distribution in fine food outlets (e.g. Dean & DeLuca, Whole Foods, Crystal Farms) without jeopardizing existing sales at lower-price supermarkets (e.g. Kroger, Safeway, King Sooper).

“Brie Bistro is a traditional quality cheese from Swedish dairy company Skånemejerier. The cheese is mainly sold in whole pieces to restaurants, cafés and catering businesses. Our task was to give the product a new packaging design reflecting the qualities of the cheese and making it stand out from the crowd. The final result is a purely graphic design with inspiration from the beloved French cuisine and old time brasseries.”

“A variety of salts of mass consumption, the containers of which can be distinguished by the initials of each salt flavour. These initials are inspired in the periodic table of elements.”

“Sir Kensington’s Gourmet Scooping Ketchup: an all-natural ketchup that is too exquisite to be squeezed from a plastic bottle.
The company was born out of an attempt to fill the dire market need for a gourmet ketchup – one that is healthier, tastier, and higher-end. The result was two flavors of ketchup, Classic and Spiced (chipotle-infused), both of which are sweetened only with honey, agave nectar, and raw brown sugar, with a base of whole pear tomatoes and apple cider vinegar.

Student work for a fictional Japanese food brand, Enso.
“This project consists of packaging for sake, noodles, rice, tea, sauces, spices and sushi- all traditional Japanese products. We spent a lot of time researching the subject and thinking about Japanese design, culture and art. Japan has always been our inspiration and this is sort of an homage to that beautiful country.”
