“We worked with A. Heirloom, a company that makes US state-shaped cutting boards, to design a single box that could house all of their different shaped boards. The solution was to create a “periodic table” of state-shapes that could be marked off to indicate the box contents. There is also an additional “other” box for their occasional custom request.”

“Objective: In 2011 Reynolds and Reyner finished two huge projects redesigning international brands of paints. After that they were asked to develop a new visual identity for a small Finnish company which was planning to enter the U.S. market. Without the past, unlike the majority of existing brands in the segment, but believing in the future, the key to access the market was a package design. “We don’t just need – we must! stand out” – this phrase has become the basis at work on a new brand identity.
Process: How to create a brand that stands out? We need to find the design solution that hasn’t been used by any of the competitors. At the same time showing the main features of the company – friendliness, quality and innovation. WTP is not just a manufacturer of paints – it’s an assistant, always ready to help, suggest and defend from the hassles and problems. Repairs with WTP is simple, convenient and fast and this is what in it’s simple design.
Results: No doubt, WTP is the most friendly and remarkable brand of paints on the shelf now. WTP has no corporate colors – it have the corporate identity, common for each design element – from business cards to packaging. Every item is bright and memorable combination of colors and objects that all together form whole the entire brand. The next step is to prove that the product is as high quality as its outer shell. But this is another story.”

“Oxford is a new tissue paper brand that we developed from scratch.
The idea was to create a completely new look for such a mundane product. We started with a name to give it some character, a matching logo and a stricking uniform.
Though constrained with the packaging format we found an original way to brand not only the existing product, but the new ones as well.”

“This work is something which we recently produced for Icon Magazine’s Rethink project. We were tasked with rethinking something we felt was in need of an overhaul. We focussed our attention up paint tins, and specifically the Dulux brand. Below is an excerpt from the interview for Icon Magazine:
Having recently braved the turmoil that is home decorating, the pain of standing in front of rows of souless tins of paint with no personality was fresh in the mind like a newly glossed skirting board. Therefore, when Icon’s ReThink brief landed, that feeling of being a frustrated paint consumer became the focus of our attention. When everyone thinks of paint (certainly in the UK) I’m sure they think of Dulux.”

“Provenance makes high-quality homeware products from recycled, reclaimed and renewable materials.
As the packaging has to sell the story of the materials as much as the product, the brand language of ‘this is now’ and ‘this was’ is used across products to introduce the story of each item’s provenance. For example, ‘this was once bottles and part of a building’ to the reverse and ‘this is now an antipasti platter set’ on the front.”

“Thymes is a company rooted in the Midwest – it’s a part of their heritage. That’s why we decided to look to the textures and images of our region when designing the Mandarin Coriander fragrance line. Our goal was to match the fresh, clean feeling of spring with the nostalgia of a warm afternoon in the kitchen. We worked closely with the Thymes team, drawing inspiration from vintage patterns, authentic packaging forms and hobnail glass. This led us down a creative path that includes an eclectic mix of custom ceramic pieces, tea towels and aprons that compliment the ever evolving mix of home fragrance products. For the color palette, we opted for bright colors that reflect the scent’s vibrant, citrusy nature.”

“Expertly crafted from layers of luxurious damascus steel, this super premium range had to appeal to chefs and home cooks who take their cooking uber seriously. Midori, the Japanese word for green reflects the subtle tints of colour in the micarta handle and we commissioned an elegant wooden case, the traditional way to present something of such value.”

“A simple and elegant design, where information and ornamental details determine the final outcome. This is exemplified in the illustrations, blind emboss with silver ink, and the paper used.”
