“Selvatica is a brand of fruit infused teas from the natural rain forests of Colombia. We wanted to portray the environment in which the Acai, Camu-Camu, Copoazu and the Arazá fruits grow. The illustrations depict the environment in which they flourish, the animals that feed from them and how the harvest is collected. We created a small window into the Amazon rain forest.”
“Our vision for this project was to merge together styles of vintage & modern to create a new/fresh design with callouts to rustic design heritage and old fashioned techniques. The kits themselves are pocket sized and can be transported anywhere. They include two main ingredients alongside a recipe instruction card and a muddler spoon. Just add your own favorite spirit and enjoy.”
“In 2014, Reunion Island Coffee Roasters undertook the largest rebranding project in the company’s 20 year history. The goal was to evolve the brand into a better space that reflected all we aim to be: quality-focused, sustainable, customer-driven, progressive and approachable. The natural place for us to begin this process was with our most public-facing packages: our 12 oz retail bags.”
“Pavement designed this simple, sophisticated label to help customers instantly connect Williams-Sonoma’s famous culinary expertise with the quality and complex flavors to be found in their new gourmet blends of coffee. Following the inspiration of gourmet tasting notes, we created a typestyle, color palette and design that distinguishes each blend, while making each appear easily accessible for any occasion and method of brewing.”
“Do your thing! Be it in super markets, gourmet food or tea shops, nowadays nothing but conventional tea that lacks design and quality comes across your way.We decided to change that and break with all traditions of the tea establishment. The brand name “POP TEE” is derived from the Pop Art movement which shocked the art establishment in the mid-50s in a way we want to shake today’s tea market. Our goal is to breathe new life into the industry by combining puristic design and vivid hues with organic teas of the highest quality. The idea of POP TEE is based on a clear-cut sustainability concept and social involvement which means that we environmentally friendly produce and ship our products and partner with Slum-Kinder Kunst, an organization that supports young children in Third World countries.”
“Hart D’Lacey have designed REN Skincare’s 2014 Christmas Gift Packaging using vibrant illustrations of cranes, a symbol of longevity and good fortune throughout Asia.
Hart D’Lacey realised the symbolism of the Crane would provide a strong concept for this range of skincare Christmas gifts, representing happiness and good luck in the coming year for the gift recipient.
The imagery utilises REN’s established bold colour palette to give the gift boxes an increased prominence in a retail environment.
REN skincare are best known for their natural, innovative skincare products. Hart D’Lacey’s ongoing involvement with REN has helped build and elevate the brand through consistently and effectively connecting with their loyal worldwide customer base.”
“The client and project overview: Earlier this year we gave ourselves a challenge: to re-imagine the traditional approach to packaging coffee and create something that we could share with our clients and friends – and so, Wishbone Brew was born. Conceptualized and created by the team at AKA and assembled together by hand, it’s been a long time in the making — but worth the wait in order to share & enjoy it with some of our favourite people.
The design and creative solution: Our main objective was to re-think traditional packaging methodology. Used as a tool to showcase our ability to think & work beyond convention, we determined from the out-set that drawing inspiration from uncommon sources was essential to the success of the project. Cue the Turpentine: An attractive shape, an airtight seal, something unexpected. This container delivered on all counts, but how to break from the unfriendly, industrial, and for all intensive purposes toxic associations we as consumers have made with that form?
A bright yet soft colour palette combined with elegant and approachable serif type helps soften the brand against the harshness of material. A quick sanding, prime, and dip in paint helps add some individuality among the products and re-enforces the handmade nature of the product, No two wishbones being exactly the same.”
“Harmonian, includes a wide range of special food, from olive oil, to flour, pasta, herb infusions, and fleur de sell. What makes them unique is the fact that many of them are based on the Triticum Dicoccum variety of wheat seeds, one of the earliest domesticated, dual core crops, in the ancient world, the official favorite of the Ancient Greeks.
The briefing (in brief): “We want a packaging design which will introduce in the most definitive way a radical line of food products. They are actually more of ‘food principles’, as they all suggest a new, health-smart and taste-full way of life. We want the design to be equally innovative.” The target consumer: Greek and foreign markets. Health conscious and demanding consumers. Products offered in specialized food shops, delicatessen stores, brand e-shop.”
“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.”
