“The brief: To create an identity for a line of vitamins sold in upmarket health food stores and organic markets. Design a logo and packaging.
The solution:The wordmark’s hand-cut feel, paired with modern typography communicates quality. Deckle-edged labels with die cuts reveal the contents of the bottles. The warm brown of the bottles adds a nostalgic touch while protecting the contents from the sunlight.”

“Illegal Burger is a tiny sit-in and take-out burger joint in Oslo, Norway. They serve high quality charcoal-grilled burgers at a low price. The restaurant is located in a space that used to be a no-licensed hole-in-the-wall bar, hence the name.
The Metric system design studio played played with classic visual fast food clichés: burgers and ingredients with faces, arms and feet and developed a series of food-crooks together with Illustrator Frode Skaren.
Materials used in the take-out packaging include brown paper bags and brown cardboard boxes to obtain the right lowbrow feel. The bags are printed with rubber stamps and boxed decorated with stickers. The wrapping paper is a four color PMS print with colors matching the tasty interior designed by Al Coulson.”

“Orontas is fundamentally about keeping things simple and being straight forward so we wanted the aesthetic of our 2011 Spring/Summer line to reflected that.
When we entered the cycling maintenance market last year with our Bike Care Lubricant in Canada we were overwhelmed by how cluttered it was with over sized product lines; some we’re toxic, some are wax, some are synthetic, some are “green”. It’s all confusing to the shopper who really just wants a product that will get the job done without making them feel guilty about using because of it’s negative environmental impact.
Our goal was to communicate transparency, even if it meant showing product imperfections, like sediment. That’s the reality of working with natural ingredients; it is what it is and the proof is in the pudding.

“The dessert beer is called Un Peu, French for ‘a little’, which is exactly how an indulgence like this should be. It is bottled in small and slender 180 ml (6.3 fl. oz.) bottles, rather than the standard stubby 12 fl. oz. bottles, a size carefully chosen based on the unusual product category. It is also packaged in 2-packs, rather than 6-packs, as it is not boisterous frat-party beer meant to be consumed in giant quantities, but dessert beer, that calls for a more sophisticated and intimate drinking experience. Like a special date, with a close friend, or over fine conversation late into the night.
Drawing from the rich, warm colour palette of the Moulin Rouge and the ostentation, the label graphics depict the heady crescendo of flavours in the beer. The type is inspired by the French Art Nouveau typography of the late nineteenth century, and has been re-drawn and embellished to fit the modern context. The 2-pack has been designed to resemble a bag (similar to wine gift bags), perfect for gifting.”

“The makers of Mom’s Best Naturals breakfast cereals recognized that their existing branding and boxes were impediments to growing their value brand’s retail footprint nationwide. Their existing boxes looked “low price,” but sacrificed brand equity, too.
HartungKemp’s colorful, illustrated redesigns reprioritized “quality” and “natural” to put them first in the client’s brand story. They also established emotional bonds and brand equity with cereal shoppers.
HK’s new boxes made an immediate impact on the client’s bottom line. The Mom’s Best Naturals sales force and distribution channels demanded an expansion of flavors even before the first new cereal box had gone into production. Retailers embraced the new look based on how it stood out on the shelf and how it engaged consumers.”

“There are two things you don’t want to put into a baby’s mouth – germs and chemicals. So we came up with a unique product to deal with this conundrum – Silver Spoon. It happens that silver is naturally antimicrobial, so we infused our recycled plastic baby spoons with 100% pure silver ions in order to keep your little one away from nasty germs without using common chemical germicides. We also wanted to create a gift-able item out of a otherwise utilitarian baby product, so we packed it accordingly.”

“Pan, originally an old record shop, is a bakery in Brooklyn, New York. Inspired by the bakery’s location, I developed
two distinct solutions that reflect the influence of vinyl records and clustered, hand drawn street art.”

“Courthouse Brewery is an extremely small, family run brewery run out of the old Courthouse situated in Dalgety, NSW. While currently only brewing reasonably small batches for distribution amongst family and friends, the brewery has the capabilities of brewing on a far larger scale for commercial sale. The brewery wanted to create branding that could be used across all of their products as a generic label for the beer they brewed.
My solution was some branding that was, for convenience, printed on packaging tape, and could be cut and fitted to the individual bottles or to boxes of the beer for storage or distribution. I designed a generic label that could be used across all of their different brews and filled in individually or with another label in case they ever felt the need for the extra information for sale or storage purposes.
The branding concept was designed to communicate the same “fill in the blanks” idea that the labels were based on. This idea also communicated the kind of personal attention given to each batch of beer they make and shows the personal love and care this family has for their brewing.”
