“Mailbooks for Good is an innovation in book publishing, which encourages donations of books to The Footpath Library – a charity which provides books for homeless and disadvantaged Australians. The innovation takes the form of specially designed dust jackets. Once readers have finished the books, they are instructed to turn them inside out and the books become pre-paid pre-addressed parcels. When posted they are sent directly to the charity for distribution to those in need. The dust jacket design is pending patent globally and an international roll-out is planned for the near future. The initiative was created by Creative agency BMF in partnership with Random House Australia.”

“Mova Ice Cream is an English brand ice cream and is now being introduced to the American market. Based in the heart of England’s beautiful Camden District, the business is run and owned by husband and wife team Matthew and Isabel Mova. Mova Ice Cream is full of the finest ingredients skillfully blended into an exciting feast of flavours that are purely indulgent.
In order to captivate the consumer, we brought a quiet purity to the overall design of the packaging yet enlivened it by introducing a whimsical and artistic approach to the Logo/Branding, which was a perfect representation of the bright taste and quality of their products.”

“Rhum Agricole is an exclusive rum that is distilled on the French island of Martinique in the Caribbean Sea. Compared to normal rum, rhum agricole is made out of freshly squeezed sugar cane juice, rather then from molasses.
When creating the new liquor brand, Fourteen Sixtyone, I was inspired by the old ocean fare and vintage maps (read pirates). The island of Martinique has the geographic coordinates 14°40n 61°00w, hence the chosen brand name.”

“An extension of the core Ola Dubh range, the product is the first of a new range of craft beers by Harviestoun Brewery where the ale is matured in Highland Park Single Malt whisky casks.
The ale was released on 1 May in limited numbers and confirmed its premium nature by selling out in 48 hours, six weeks before it was packaged. It has captured a discerning consumer, who loves beautifully brewed craft beer, but also appreciates the subtleties offered by the whisky cask maturing process.
threebrand was tasked to create packaging for the beer that reflected the core Ola Dubh brand but signals that although an extension of the core range, it is a different edition.
The ethos of the Highland Park Whisky look and feel were also to be taken into consideration and balanced within the design.”

“Dynoptic is a network of opticians in Switzerland, offering a collection of contact lenses and lens care products. Dynoptic’s packaging distinguishes itself through its uniquely simple design and its black background, which clearly sets it apart from the design of its competitors. The coloured numbering system on products enables customers and opticians alike to quickly recognise the products, as every colour represents a specific purpose. A green number indicates “All-in-One” products, a red number denotes products which should be handled with care and a blue number stands for products which can be used to quickly clean contact lenses on the go. The font “CoHeadline” by Dalton Maag was chosen, as it appeals to both sexes with its use of corners and curves. The Dynawell suite of eye care products was designed using the same concept. The colour scheme for Dynawell products, however, is a blue background and white numbers.”

“Bigagnoli Wines is a new wine producer in the Garda Lake area of Northern Italy. The other producers in the area often use classic labels on their bottles. Bigagnoli breaks out this habit and challenges the market norm by creating special edition wines dressed to look like perfume. A geometrical black and white pattern, different on each product enhances the luxury of the wine and embraces the bottle in a precious texture.”

“La Michoacana is a traditional Mexican “paleteria” wich has been in the market for a long time now. During this period, the brand has suffered a constant changing on its corporate identity caused by the non attendance to its marketing, leading to a misunderstanding of the brands core. We decided to change the concept by using a new packaging system focused on the substrate and product speech. This will lead to a more natural feel of the product, being able to see it and almost taste it by its natural colors and textures. The logotype was re-designed to make it modern and adjust some old aspects of the first logotype. We decided to conserve the rounded shape and the rounded typography making it more playful and fun. Using just the traditional “rosa mexicano” we designed a vibrant but sophisticated color palette, leading to a more specific target; a traditional brand adjusted to modern times.”

“¡Cho! is a completely unique range of on-the-go drinking Gazpacho recently launched to the UK market. Created by English entrepreneurs and a Michelin starred Spanish chef ¡Cho! is made from organic fruit and vegetables sourced and bottled in Adalucia.
¡Cho! needed to be positioned as a completely different product, and in doing so create its own place in the market. It required a brand identity that communicated a uniquely daring and different gourmet product with real provenance and exquisite taste.”

“The idea came from the fact that US markets toss out 15 billion dollars worth of fruits and vegetables each year just because they are bruised or discolored. But they are still fresh and edible. I felt there was an opportunity to stop the waste, so Ugly Fruit was born. Ugly Fruit is a stand that makes juice, jams, and dried fruits out of unattractive produce donated from our neighborhood grocery stores. Ugly fruit, pretty yummy!”
