“For centuries Insect consumption has been part of the everyday diet of many of the world’s human inhabitants from the Aborigines of Australia and their favoured delicacy of Witjutie grubs to the night markets of Thailand where crisp, fried Locusts and Beetles are favourite snacks to be consumed with an ice cold beer! We in the west have closed our minds to Insect eating (also known as Entomophagy) but In doing so have forgotten that these are one of the most nutritious foods available, higher in protein levels than chicken and cholesterol free. All of these Insects are grown specially for Human Consumption and meet all strict health and safety guidelines.”
Does anyone know who is responsible for this design?

“A clear strategy for the brand and the range, along with the naming of two new brands: Fixa and Func, tailored to the Nordic market. The Fixa brand comprised kitchen utensils and cleaning implements. Func comprised technical products. The result was two strong brands within one dynamic design system. The packaging design is attractive, clear and highly visible on the shelf.”

“Alton Brown is a spice range for blind and visually impaired people. The range also includes olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Together with these liquids a special spoon is provided which makes it easier to pour and measure them, it’s the measure of a tablespoon. The text is placed on the exact same place on all the products and all the braille is embossed. The tubes are made out of PLA to make them sustainable and the refill bags are made out of recycled paper. The logo is communicating the exact same thing for blind as for the non blind since A is one dot and B is two.”

Thanks to Portfolio Center grad Jimmy Stones for sending in his project for the redesign of Goya Packaging.
“For a class assignment, I decided to relaunch a large Hispanic brand (Goya) as the premiere fun food for college students. My solution was to use humor and simple hand drawn characters to communicate the fun fiesta spirit that is in every Goya product. In addition, product titles became more relaxed and fun like “Mexi-Rice”. Finally, the package sizes were enlarged and changed to different colors to create a more festive mood on the shelf. The tagline – “The Fun Food Series” tied all the products together.”

Swedish brand Renée Voltaire has some great minimalist packaging.
“A few years ago Swedish health foods weren’t considered chic. But that was before Renée Voltaire taught us that organic fare tastes better – and good food can inspire our way of living. The packaging with its personalized texts plays a vital part in the product design. Which Silver has created from the start.”

“A bespoke labeling system for a cottage industry that makes seasonal jams, marmalades and chutneys.
We created a label for each ingredient (defined by the ingredient colour) and months of the year, to reflect the fact that recipes and ingredients change with the seasons.”

“What do we need from a package? We need a functional service of course, but also information about the product. Not a complex text that you don’t have time to read, but a simple letter related in this case to the Maple Syrup classification system.
This is Andrée Rouette’s project in my packaging class. Despite its expensive approach, this concept of maple wood laminated thin bottles they can be reused and therefore justified. Also they could be simply replaced by a wood texture printed-paper label as a cheaper version.”

“Popfish is a restaurant/shop located in Rio de Janeiro. The Design was inspired by Japanese and Tokyo imagery, using illustrations and characters to enhance its visual identity. A highlight in the visual identity is that each Popfish shop has a theme colour added to the shop’s name. The first one called Popfish Magenta. More than a restaurant, Popfish is an attempt to join gastronomy and design at the same spot.”
