“Our brief to create original packaging design for a new Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced by The Getty Family in South Africa and the only element to the design brief that was mandatory was to ensure that we used the “Old Oil Logo” from yesteryear. As a result the whole design began to take on a deliberately retro feel, including the choice of colour, typography etc. with illustration by Doug Powell, all done locally.”
“The goal was to communicate the tradition and the natural ingredients used for in the popsicles; this is the reason why we chose to combine handmade typography with the popsicle image. Here you can see the first three flavours but It Pops will be launching new flavours soon. At the same time we’re working with the brand identity and we will be uploading soon the visual communication and the stationery. Have a sneak peak at the packaging design for now!”
“You like bread. You like beer. You’ll love BarrettsRidge Beer Bread. What started out as one of Grandma’s secret family recipes is now available to all who reckon that the time has come to end the unholy separation of beer and bread.
This product speaks for itself. Made by a real person and truly simple to prepare; it naturally looks, smells and tastes delicious. I wanted to create packaging that doesn’t feel mass-produced, that evokes wholesome home-baked goodness and a fresh twist on heritage.”
Some might argue that this doesn’t classify as packaging, others will say it does. Either way, this is amazing.
“Barbecue is a major passion in Brazil. And Tramontina is the leader in kitchen supplies, with a complete line of barbecue accessories. Now, in order to increase customer loyalty, the brand has released The Bible of Barbecue.
Created by JWT Brazil, it’s not only a book that shows you how to make the perfect barbecue. It actually helps the reader in doing so by offering pages that turn into barbecue utensils. There’s a page made entirely of coal. A page made of salt, a sharpening page, even a wooden cover to be used as a chopping board. All of them organized in the exact order you need for cooking. And of course, there’s also a page that turns into an apron. So that everything, including the reader, looks perfect down to the last little detail.
So far The Barbecue Bible has been sent to master barbecue chefs in Brazil and it will soon be available in selected bookstores.”
“The brand identity of the economy line stands for a strong cost-performance ratio. The economy range focuses on price without being positioned on the lowest level. The legal requirements are more than met.
The line delivers brand quality for a good price as well as a wide product range. The quality of the food is as good as the products of any manufacturer`s brand.”
“The challenge: When our client came to us he knew Toronto was hungry for a grab-and-go lunch spot that focused on fresh, quality food. He came to us with a big ask and a clean slate: create a retail brand from scratch that breaks through the competitive quick-serve food service category.
The approach: Busy people want food that’s delicious, unpretentious, and affordable, so we gave them a PICNIC. It’s a brand name that stands for the kind of quality and charm you’d find in your own wicker basket on a sunny day in the park. And drawing inspiration from a classic picnic staple, the watermelon, we developed collateral pieces as fresh and fun as the food.”
“Sitka Salmon Shares is a Community Supported Fishery that delivers the freshest King, Coho and Sockeye salmon to the Midwest from Sitka, Alaska.
This Share Box is one of the most important touch points in their brand experience and Sitka Salmon Shares wanted something special that people would share with friends and keep out on the counter after use.
So we used the entire box as a canvas to communicate the idea of Wild Alaska, Sitka Shares’ superior sustainability focus and a little bit of humor on the inside flap.”
“Notio Premium Extra virgin Olive Oil is the first of a series of products under the same brand name, all of which are produced on an estate located at the village of Agios Floros in the Messinia region, on the south of Peloponnese in Greece.
The idea behind the design: One of the initial goals was to make clear that Notio Goods is a company that is proud of its greek and more generally, south-european roots. In the European south, people “see things slightly differently”. As a result, an outsider usually gets the impression of disorder, whereas in reality it is just a matter of a different logic, a different set of rules that may not always be what he/she is used to, but ultimately work.”
“Global brand design consultancy Elmwood has revealed a new packaging design for the cheddar range from much-loved brand Anchor®. The redesign comprises block cheddar in mature, extra mature and lighter, as well as sliced and grated variants, and will be rolled out across supermarkets nationwide from February 2014.
Elmwood were tasked with creating a design that would perfectly balance Anchor’s® ‘Tastes Like Home’ ethos with a high quality product message. The new range look also needed to be recognisably Anchor® while achieving clear stand out in the crowded cheddar fixture.”
“Raw meat for dogs is a growing trend. It’s the most natural way for dogs to get the fresh goodness they need and in answer to the rising demand, a whole new category has emerged. But however tasty it is for pets, there’s no denying how unpleasant raw meat can be for owners.
Robot Food, the UK-based branding, packaging and new product development specialist, recognised the opportunity to offer dog owners a more appealing alternative. Instead of trays of frankly yucky product that’s off-putting to handle, Robot Food came up with ‘Duchess and Rover, gourmet sausages for dogs’. Working closely with a Yorkshire meat producer, the creative team developed the proposition, name, branding and packaging.”
