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.

Designed by nu:amsterdam | Country: The Netherlands
“Dr van der Hoog is a Dutch Cosmetics brand with a 75 year heritage. They decided to radically reposition their brand to a stylish statement of natural beauty. The Creative network nu:amsterdam created the new identity for the 60+ products assortment.
The designers chose an iconic centered layout, applied to simple white packaging for the moisturizers category. Colour accents in the product descriptors help consumers navigate the 6 ranges assortment. Heavy materials, refined silver lines and the logo embossing confirm the quality and authority of the brand.
In the product presentation kit the contrast of the unfinished birch wood against the shiny packs makes a great impact, communicating natural beauty in a simple way.
The younger face masks category requires more dynamism and power, which is what explains the abundant use of natural ingredient photographs on the packs.
The humorous product descriptors add youth and fun to the packs, that are still part of the brand identity.”

“Device Printshop is a public access letterpress and screen printing studio located in The Wherehouse, home of Krankies Coffee in Winston-Salem, NC. This year as a holiday gift coffee liqueur was handmade using local coffee and moonshine from our friends at Krankies Roasters and Piedmont Distillers. The packaging for the concept was inspired by the burlap bags used for shipping unroasted beans. The bags were screen printed using a unique blend of thickened coffee and dye. Hang tags were letterpress printed and stamped.”

“How does a brand shift preconceived consumer expectations, especially when it’s a gluten-free product typically considered lacking in taste? This was the challenge pizza franchise, Garlic Jim’s faced when launching their gluten-free pizza offering to a broader, in-store retail audience.
With an estimated 18 million people in the United States sensitive or allergic to gluten to some degree, Garlic Jim’s approached Seattle-based brand design firm Hornall Anderson to help them expand their already successful in franchise gluten-free pizza to frozen opportunities by venturing into grocery stores. With this new endeavor, they looked to Hornall Anderson to help them better communicate their point of difference with consumers and retailers alike.

Designed by Studio h | Country: United Kingdom
“Branding and packaging design by Studio h for Brio and Vardo, two new brands for the first detergent products to be manufactured in Georgia. Aimed initially at the Georgian market and their neighbouring countries, it was important that Brio and Vardo appealed as local brands reflecting their Georgian provenance and at the same time competed on shelf with the large global competitors. Standing aside from the industry norms Studio h concentrated on using symbolic imagery to create an emotional link to the culture. The branding for Vardo uses a rose, Georgia’s national flower. Brio’s circular illustration reflects the mountains and trees of Georgia’s landscape and the colour palette references the natural hues of the Southern Black Sea region.”

“New Amarelli packs by Angelini Design. This new packaging is the latest “pearl” that Angelini Design has created for centenary Calabrian confectionery company Amarelli. The small boxes are made in metal and mimic the colors of anise and mint. The typically retro style, material and finish are the result of a mix of quality, refinement and attention towards tradition, values that Amarelli has always carried forward with coherence, allowing it to maintain a solid position as one of the longest standing Italian brands.”
