“The Westerham Brewery is one of Kent’s finest craft brewers, producing exceptional real ales from locally sourced ingredients.
In partnership with their German friend and master brewer Markus Lotz, the Westerham Brewery brought together the best of each country’s brewing processes to create a range of German style beers.
D. Studio came up with the strapline ‘German beer, Kent accent’ to reflect the coming together of the two great brewing nations. This idea was reflected in the label design with the top half featuring hand crafted German blackletter script and border styling whilst the bottom half was a more English affair.
D. Studio also created the names for the beers, which further expressed the idea and communicated the style of each beer with an anglo-German play on words.”

“A retro-inspired red and white pattern, which replaced Jam Jar’s original checkered gingham on the capsule and carton. A change was called-for after the original design came under trademark infringement claims by a large food products corporation. An initiative was drawn to create a new, distinctive and lively design, that stayed true to Jam Jar’s messaging as “Sweet Perfect… Simple, Pure and Honest.”

“Philab is a Greek cosmetic production company. Its philosophy is based on the principles of efficacy, quality and safety.
Given the company’s name, the source of inspiration for its logo was the Greek letter ‘Φ’ [Phi] which stands for the divine proportions, the ‘golden ratio’ 1.618, named after the sculptor Phidias. The absolutely symmetrical shape of the capital ‘Φ’ was moulded in such a manner so as to resemble the shape of a round bottom test tube of a chemical lab. The deep purple reconciles the power of red with the power of blue.

“I wanted to focus on the strong fruity taste of the wine that has a slight a touch of mystery to it. Since it’s a modern wine I let the typography, which is a bit playful – but at the same time pretty strict, tell that story. The grapes stand for the mystery and indulge you to taste it. Maybe it’s the forbidden fruit?”

“Butlers came to us about a year ago when Blacksticks Blue, their absolutely stonking cheese, was languishing on shelves. This special cheese is lovingly handmade (like every cheese the Butler family produces) with a loyal following, but its safe, old packaging was in need of some TLC.
They trusted us to create a simple look that means business. The first thing we did was incorporate the trees that inspired the unusual name on the pack – in the winter the trees near the dairy look like black sticks. Then, we wrote up this lovely story and crafted the strapline ‘Handmade with love’.
Now Blacksticks Blue has a spanking new identity and new followers, including celebrity chef Simon Rimmer. Our relationship with Butlers is growing too and we have lots in the pipeline to make all their cheeses look as good as they taste.”

“We Canadians have many traditions; amongst them is the sugar cream fudge. Recipes are passed down from generation to generation and remain a staple in our Christmas holidays and also remain a not so commercialized sweet. A simple recipe made from brown sugar and cream, mixed and cooled off before being chopped into cubes like regular chocolate fudge. When it came to the packaging of this traditional sweet, I wanted to stay close to our canadian roots, reminiscent of our past; the lumberjack and hunter jacket. The concept would be that the sugar cream fudge be moulded in the form of the buttons, as if they were the coat’s buttons themselves. The outside packaging would represent the manliness of each Canadian and the inside lace would represent the sweet and reassuring aspect of all Canadian women.”

“To celebrate the royal wedding and meet the demand for brands marking British nostalgia and the best of British, award-winning design agency, BrandOpus has created a special limited edition pack for Rowse. The celebratory design will hit the shelves at the beginning of April and will be available for a month beyond the event. BrandOpus was tasked with creating a bespoke label for Rowse Limited Edition Royal Wedding British Honey that will be available in major supermarkets such as Morrisons and Tesco. The new iconic packaging features a heart-shaped crest at the centre incorporating devices like the thistle and the shamrock that celebrate the honey brand’s long-established British heritage and quality dating back to 1938. Founder Tony Rowse started beekeeping in a small shed in Ewelme, Oxfordshire before turning his passion into a business. From humble beginnings the company has grown to become the country’s market leader in honey for which BrandOpus overhauled its identity and packaging last year.
Paul Taylor, creative director, BrandOpus says: “Royal wedding fever is definitely upon us and major British brands are capitalising on the feel good factor that the event invokes in the population’s psyche. For brands whose core values include Britishness this is surely the ultimate opportunity to reiterate their British origins.”
