“The Great British Butcher is a new range of British-inspired rubs and seasonings prepared by MRC Flava, a third generation family owned company that started out in the butcher trade back in 1976.
With the rising popularity of farm shops and gourmet butchers, the brief was to come up with a brand identity and packaging that built on the company’s genuine British heritage, celebrates the tradition of the British butcher, and communicates good, honest quality.
Like the product, the packaging is simple, robust and wholesome, balancing both traditional and modern elements. The product’s British heritage is communicated subtly through the logo, and vintage-style typography gives a nod to the past. Playful illustrations on the side of each tin highlight the importance of the carefully selected, quality ingredients. Quality flavours for quality meat!”

“The DIY Calendar is part of White Studio self-promotion project: BITRI, a special brand of the studio that specialises in exquisite and luxurious objects all conceptualised and designed in-house.
This particular calendar is all about freedom and a lot of writing. It can be used both as a calendar and a diary, giving the user the freedom to select each day as many pages as he wish. The stickers indicate the day of the month, and can be applied anywhere on the page, allowing the user to write around it. The main objective with this project was to develop a do-it-yourself object, one that can be built differently by each user and personalised as desire.”

Designed by Force & Form | Country: United States
“Force & Form was commissioned to create an idiosyncratic brand identity for a new distillery, one that could blend Old World traditions with the creative vibe of Seattle’s SODO district—which the distillery calls home. We named, branded and packaged the distillery “3 Howls” as an homage to a British legend. As the tale goes, Hell’s hound howls 3 times before dragging revelers to the Underworld. The dog’s color varies from village to village, from victim to victim—but their fate remains the same. While 3 Howls’ spirits won’t drag you to hell, they are attracted to revelers. Hand lettering reinforces the handcrafted, small batch nature of the brand positioning, as well as the gritty terroir of the Distillery’s home. Traditional typographic structures and calligraphic flourishes honor distilling’s rich visual history. The diamond-shaped dieline maximizes shelf pop and unifies the brand across 3 traditional bottles. The result is gritty neo-traditionalism—branding that fits into but stands out from the crowded Seattle distilling scene. 3 Howls is a blend of grit and finesse—authenticity and imagination.”

“Late last year, we indulged our inner brewers and had a go at making our own beer. As designers, we thought it would give us a hands-on insight to the basic principles of the brewing process, and as drinkers, we thought it would give us a barrel-load of good times.
Sadly, the results weren’t quite what we’d hoped and on reflection, we’ve decided to leave the brewing to the experts.
We branded and packaged our produce appropriately and sent it out to local brewers and craft beer producers to introduce ourselves.”

“Hired Guns Creative provided the product naming, branding, and packaging design for The Empiric, a gin from Arbutus Distillery, Vancouver Island’s newest craft distillery.
Cloaked in midnight black, ever-present, seldom seen, The Empiric resides amid the twisted cedars of temperate West Coast rain forests. Ruled by ritual, The Empiric gathers strength from the spirits, invoking darkness to expose light. A bearer of natural magic and harbinger of deeply shrouded secrets, The Empiric is a menacing beauty, bringing clarity only to those who are truly worthy. Decades of knowledge and practice collide, exploding into a spirit that tastes like no other, an ethereal blend of the finest West Coast herbs and botanicals.
Darkness Will Bring Light.”

“Clean Break offers tongue-in-cheek parting gifts for that not-so-special someone. The concept is a line of confections, gift cards, and gift bags to deliver a “dear john” break-up message with humor. Our hope is that mismatched lovers can share a laugh in what is naturally an awkward moment, and perhaps even start a lasting platonic friendship.
Candy product packaging, like the “Don’t be Bitter” Lemonheads, proclaims such messages as, “Someone once told me, when life gives you a lemon… dump him.” And the cards offer options such as “I hope you… A) Find love. B) Call me to hook up. C) Go to hell or D) Get an STD.”
