“I buy Twix extra because it’s only 10p more expensive than regular one. I finish it in one go, and feel guilty for the rest of the day.
Bargain food persuades people by playing with the value of money, which has brought a lot of problems to society: over nutrition, eating disorders, obesity, illness, guilt, wasting food, wasting resources, over production, etc.
Can design make people buy food that offers LESS?

“A boutique label from California, Dragonfly Winery is focused on producing small quantities of ultra premium terrior driven wines, paired with a unique winemaking style.
We were approached by Dragonfly to rejuvenated their wine packaging & brand identity. Our solution was a simple, clean typographic approach alongside a Dragonfly illustration creating a strong, modern visual identity.
The application takes the form of a 1 colour screen to the bottle. The logotype on the neck label is silver foiled onto black, making for easy identification when the bottle is stored amongst other wines.”
