Italian Spaghetti

Designed by Neal Fletcher | Country: United Kingdom

We featured Neal’s student packaging concept for spaghetti back in August. He’s since redesigned his packaging to give it a different look and feel while still using the ingenious ‘portion control’ packaging method he originally devised.

“My spaghetti packaging design stemmed from a project I was set on my degree course, we had to pick one of five difficult objects to package (spaghetti, marbles, an egg, a single rose or custard powder). The reason I chose Spaghetti was because I always find myself wasting spaghetti as I’d always cook too much, so I wanted to address that problem in some way.

There are already measuring devices for spaghetti on the market but nothing within the packaging itself, giving the consumer the spaghetti in 6 equal servings to save on waste, the packaging can then be re-used and kept forever. It was my aim to create something that was visually appealing but also addressed a problem and could serve as a useful aid in any kitchen.”

COOK

Designed by LOVE | Country: United Kingdom | Font: Gotham

A combination of wood cut illustrations and clever copy make this food packaging design stand out from the crowd. Stick-on labels provide the name of the chef who cooked the meal as well as pertinent information such as use-by dates and price.

“Working to a very tight production budget, LOVE’s core challenge was to create packaging with cut-through in a cluttered market and reinforce COOK’s position as the most respected provider of prepared meals in the UK. COOK has been supplying the nation with high quality prepared meals since 1997 and was afforded the confidence to communicate key ingredients in a way that emphasized their personality; sophisticated yet playful.

LOVE’s Designer, Emma Morton, said: “We drew on consumers’ insights into what makes a night in ‘special’ and brought them to life in an lively and engaging way. We made the dining at home ‘occasion’ our focus to draw people in. We also embraced and emphasized the fact all COOK’s dishes are lovingly handmade (by people and not machines) and reflected this in every element of the design.”

Charles Worthington

Designed by Cookchick | Country: United Kingdom

CookChick successfully won a 3 way pitch to secure the re-design project for the whole Charles Worthington Results range in September 2009. The Results range includes Shampoo & Conditioner products over 8 ‘regimes’ along with a full range of styling products and hair intensive solutions. The brand occupies a number two positioning in the professional hair care market.

The main objective of the brief was to regain a confident simplicity to the identity and packaging whilst increasing the premium positioning for the brand in an ultra competitive and increasingly noisy market. The starting point was the Charles Worthington brand identity. CookChick developed an idea from Charles himself by using just the CW letters and creating a cut-sharp brand mark. Coupled with the brand mark is a stripped back approach to the regime naming and descriptive copy. Each Regime has a clear, to the point, hair benefit USP and carries a hotspot of colour. It was agreed early on that the Charles Worthington bottle shape was unique and still carried a real point of difference on shelf. However, the new pastel & foil silver colour palette replaces the previous translucent plastic approach suggesting a more premium and sophisticated range.

The attention to detail was a critical aspect throughout this project. One example of this was adding a tactile CW logo embossing to the recessed thumb button on the lid. The overall impression in-store gives a fresh, bright & sophisticated brand feel coupled with immediate product benefit navigation.”
