“Evil Twin/Omnipollo Russian Roulette is a collaborative effort between Swedish brewery Omnipollo and Danish brewery Evil Twin. Instead of doing a collaboration beer which is quite common these days, we choose to brew a beer each – a dark and a light one – and seal them in identical packages. For this project, Karl Grandin and Martin Justesen managed to merge the two company identities avoiding a collision and creating an expression with is forceful yet respectful. Bust a cap and face your destiny.”

“The brief was to redesign Tesco’s range of fresh cream that covered over 30 lines. The existing design focused on serving suggestions. Whilst inspirational, this made the range very difficult to shop the specific cream type.
The idea behind the new design was to create a quality seal that takes cues from old fashioned dairy cream pots. Bold typography is used to highlight the cream type, this is supported by strong colour coding of the seal that follows sector language. This strong simple idea was able to adapt across the various pot sizes and lids. The design also worked well when applied across range extensions such as Soured Cream and Crème Fraiche. The new design achieves a consistent look across the range, a strong shelf presence and succeeds in making the range much easier to shop.”

“According to archeological evidence, the human race has been drinking wine for over 8,000 years. However, never before has there been such diversity in origin denomination, quality and prices.
Throughout the years, there has been a tendency of taking products originally treated to remain longer such as cheese, cured meats and even salt, and take them to the same level of sophistication of a perfume or a high couture garment. For wine, this tendency is stronger than for any other beverage; We can find three dollar wines in a cardboard box, or a $160,000 bottle of Château Laffite.”

“In 2002, the Grassini’s established a family vineyard in the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara, California. A simple crest with a ligature of the number 5 and the letter G was designed with inspiration from the five children. After several successful harvests, the family knew it was time to take the crest and build a more robust brand expression with Duffy & Partners—one that would more aptly reflect all that the vineyard and its harvests symbolized. Design components include metallic silk-screened bottles, individually signed and numbered labels and hand-dipped wax seals. The Grassini Family Vineyards striking new bottle design by Duffy & Partners is now on the market.”

“HUB is pleased to share the 2011 Major League Baseball All Star Retailer invitation suite we designed and produced for Nike. This year’s MLB invitations featured the same Southern Spanish flare as the retreat’s location: the luxurious Montelucia resort and spa in Scottsdale, AZ. HUB teased Nike’s top baseball retailers with a series of captivating invitations, each revealing more and more information about this year’s retreat. First, recipients received a custom, hot stamped wood box containing a hardbound book. Then, we sent out a muslin bag containing a notebook with custom leather embossed cover. And, finally, we sent out an embroidered robe along with the official invitation sealed with a custom wax seal.”

“Velocità is all about fresh and locally roasted coffee that is delivered direct to the shelf. Velocità (Italian for ‘speed’) takes the form of an express courier parcel. To emphasise the freshness of the coffee, each pack is labeled with bespoke hand-applied stamps that display the date of roasting and best before dates, and sealed with a custom-made ‘express’ adhesive tape.”

“LYO Food Ltd. is a producer of LYO Expedition – freeze-dried meals intended for alpinist, sailors and outdoor enthusiasts.
LYO Expedition packaging needs to be small, lightweight and withstand most harsh conditions that are a norm in demanding environments like Himalaya, North Pole, Atlantic Ocean, Iceland glaciers etc. These are the reasons why all meals and fruits are packed in simple aluminium reinforced doypacks – each hermetically sealed.
We have dressed this spartan object in minimalistic fashion covering it entirely with black and white pattern(designed for LYO EXPEDITION identity system). Then we have added only big, orange name of the meal on the front and a green sticker referring to pure natural content of every LYO meal. On the back of packaging we have designed a waterproof informative etiquette.

“Falcon Enamelware has been an icon of British home life since the 1920s. The classic kitchenware brand has been revitalised with a new brand identity and updated ranges by Morse Studio & Kiwi & Pom.
We were commissioned to create a new brand identity including logotype, packaging, art direction and e-commerce website design. Our identity rigourously references Falcon’s distinctive blue rim, from the creation of a bespoke, inline typeface to the overhead food photography. The packaging takes the same uncomplicated approach. Simple half-tone illustrations are screen-printed on sturdy corrugated cardboard referencing the utility and charm of hardware shop packaging. An updated ‘falcon in flight’ crest acts as a seal of authenticity on every product.”

Following up on the strong success of Level Ground Trading’s 2010 Complete Brand Redesign and Coffee Packaging overhaul, Subplot Design Inc. has redesigned Level Ground’s Organic Dried Fruit and Organic Cane Sugar Packaging, and has helped launch Level Ground’s first MicroLot offering. All products are on shelf today.
“Subplot’s 2010 packaging redesign has contributed amazingly to our success”, says Level Ground President, Hugo Ciro. “Sales are up 20% over the previous year, and we have signed many new retailers. We are obviously thrilled.
”The packaging platform extends the system created in 2010, with innovative kraft paper, vapour-barrier bags with resealable zips for freshness. The Dried fruit build on the coffee platform with full-colour fruit imagery, to help play up the extraordinary taste and freshness of the product itself. Clear bags for Can Sugar allow the colour and texture of the sugar to shine through. And a new stamp graphic signifies the MicroLot system, with a revised design layout to help distinguish it from the line of regular coffees.

“Burnt Sugar is a boutique brand of fudge with humble beginnings. Started by Justine Cather, who nabbed her mum’s recipe and took it to market (London’s famous Borough Market to be precise), word soon got out about the delicious lumpy, bumpy pieces of sweetness and its popularity soared.
Having worked with Justine on her gift ranges, she asked us to create a new direction for the brand and redesign the packaging for the core range. Working closely with Justine, we developed the ‘every one is different’ concept, which not only celebrates the perfectly irregular pieces of taste bud-tingling randomness but also all the wonderful variety of foodie folk who like to indulge in her fudge.
