Alter Eco

Designed by Tomorrow | Country: United States

“Alter Eco is a brand on a mission. Based in San Francisco with roots in France, this intrepid band of activists is wielding the food business as a weapon against poverty and inequality in developing nations: their offering of chocolate, rice, quinoa and sugar is certified Fair Trade, Organic and on its way to Carbon Zero.

An opportunity to expand their distribution also meant expanding the brand promise – adding a heaping spoonful of taste appeal to their values-driven enterprise. We worked with the Alter Eco team to create a shelf experience that transports mainstream foodies to an exotic, delicious and sustainable place.”

Bzzz Honey

Designed by Backbone Studio | Country: Armenia

“The most tasty honey is in the beehive. But it is impossible to buy it in a market –  it was impossible. Designers of Backbone Studio have made it out of wood and hid the can with honey into the improvised beehive.  Simple but simultaneously original wooden wrapper is the message to the nature, ecology and pure taste. You immediately want to open and taste it. And there are no bees!”

Maison Dandoy

Designed by Base Design | Country: Belgium

“With values rooted in the past but a business plan oriented toward the future, Dandoy asked Base Design in 2011 to modernize and rethink its visual identity, packaging range and website. The main questions to solve were “How do you transform a small-scale, local family business into a global family brand, without losing the image of local craftsmanship and true tradition?” and “How to reach a broader audience?”.

To tackle these questions, Base Design started with interviews in the field to gauge the context. This was followed by an analysis of Dandoy’s assets, opportunities and brand experience, a benchmark study, ideas for improvement and a workshop with the client. All this resulted in about ten design-strategy recommendations followed by a graphic design phase.”

Mighty Rice

Designed by mousegraphics | Country: Greece

“The briefing (in brief): We want a packaging design that will communicate the difference in quality, the refined character and the exceptional origin of our product. The target audience: An eclectic but low-key clientele. The design: To meet the expectations of an overseas based client was a challenge we accepted with enthusiasm. Our design approach developed through a series of emails and skype calls between Athens and the exotic Mauritius, whilst we gradually absorbed the information that described this food product as ethically cultivated and dynamically positioned in the contemporary market. This experience was incorporated into the design framework. Thus, a mighty combination between the stated, the symbolic and the imaginary emerged. The essence of the island and the grain -the basic unit of every rice production- are rendered visible through clear, dynamic albeit elegant, transparent, duo-chromatic (b&w), non-folkloric design choices.”
