    Client: Bluebeard Coffee Roasters
    Location: Tacoma, Washington, USA
    Packaging Contents: Coffee
    Packaging Materials: Foil Bag, Hand-Applied Labels

    Seattle-based brand firm, Partly Sunny, developed a bold visual identity and retail packaging system for Bluebeard Coffee Roasters, to launch the brand in a region that is famously over-caffeinated. Style and simplicity helped Bluebeard cut through the coffee clutter. And the Tacoma, WA company has quickly become one of the most beloved brands in the Pacific Northwest.

    What's Unique?
    As a specialty roaster, Bluebeard needed a lot of flexibility in their packaging system, to accommodate a rotating assortment of coffees. Our solution was to develop a hand-applied label system that is color-coded by country of origin. This not only helps differentiate various products, but gives the brand a bold and colorful shelf presence. The bag itself features a flood of dark blue, with the graphics knocking out to let the foil substrate show through (instead of using silver ink). And the crowning detail is a matte varnish that covers the bag, leaving only select areas of glossy finish.

    A classic wine with modern clothing. Game-playing, and metal stampings for a classic bottle.

    The Bodega Doña Felisa is cradled within the Serrania de Ronda at an altitude of some 850m, directly facing the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Acinipo where wines have been created since the first century a.c. This sweet wine is the result of a special selection of Muscatel grapes made by the Maestro Wine-Maker Juan Muñoz; whose family have elaborated the sweet wines of Málaga for more than three generations.

    It is a golden wine whose natural sweetness is balanced by an invigorating freshness. The result of a scrupulous elaboration, relying on mules to carry the harvested grapes from the precipitous slopes of the best fincas in the Axarquia.

    Location: Budapest, Hungary

    Rawganique founded by Thammarath Jamikorn & Klaus Wallner in 1997 is a handcrafted products manufacturer that is based on Denman Island in Canada’s Strait of Georgia. They are chemical-free and sweatshop-free. Made in-house for end-to-end purity and founded by off-the-grid island homesteaders.

    We were comisioned to create their new visual identity. We made a sistem that is strict with its logo and font. But like nature itself from where the firm has its most inspiration the identity had to be more opened and closer. That is why in order that the identity is one in every way and reflects the new lifestyle that the firm proclaims we thought of using something personal like handwriting. In handwriting we saw the presence of the personal touch to each product, it gives the impression of a custom made material, it breaks away from commerce and convetional and it is modern. So we devised a custom typeface for Rawganique, that due to modern printing techique we could create more verions of written words on labels. In this way almost all labels differ form one another, because every label set on the offset printing sheet is different from one another in terms of typeface and pattern crop to.

    Location: Auckland, New Zealand
    Packaging Contents: Shampoo and Conditioner Limited Edition Packaging

    Savar Skincare just launched their entry into the premium hair care category with limited edition packaging. Designed by Auckland based agency Redfire, the packaging design reflects Savar’s New Zealand heritage as well natural plant-based proposition featuring the native New Zealand Koru. The Koru is a Maori motif of the unfurling silver fern frond; symbolising new life, rejuvenation and possibility.

    Redfire used gold foil detailing and modern serif type on white space to express premium brand cues, with stand out on-shelf impact within the retail environment. Redfire Creative Director Colin Downing says, “The simple yet sophisticated packaging execution had a huge impact and launch sales were significant. Our client is very happy and realises the power of great packaging design and the power of the ‘Limited Edition’ pack.”

    Redfire also designed a “Gift with Purchase” pack to target the upcoming Christmas season and with a “ Good Hair Day” theme. This clever execution has strong visuals normally seen on POS posters and support material, but not on pack. As Downing says, “We wanted to build an emotional connection and ‘stand out’ with our packaging – we didn’t want to blend in with the glossy and ribbon wrapped gift boxes most major skincare and cosmetic brands use.”

    Redfire have definitely achieved this and their smart use of premium pack and “Gift with Purchase” packaging shows the understanding that packaging has to work at the shop floor level to sell.

    For this project we decided to approach the packaging design with playful combination of vivid colors on background with black and white photography in front. The images of hand are in black and white while holding the product itself displayed in color. We added a handwritten typography to background which serves as a lovely texture. Furthermore it carries a message, serving as a subtle space for brand’s communication.

    When we designed the brand name, we chose to add a hashtag to it. Why? Simply to make it more appealing to the young generation with its fingers on twitter constantly. And the result? Fresh, trendy and appealing packaging design.

    Designing private label for a chain store can be quite challenging. We decided to create a sub brand with its own, unique idea and identity. Inspired by a clock showing 5 minutes until lunch, the packaging design implements these elements using minimalist approach. The whole concept is flexible and works well on different shapes of various products, such as tall and thin spaghetti, wide potato chips, glass jars or meat and vegetable packaging. At the end, all products are easily recognizable the branding is flexible enough to be used in further expansion of the product variety.

    Location: Moscow, Russia

    Development of a new trade mark of hygiene paper products Reina

    Branding agency Viewpoint commissioned by Kazan company Pulp Invest developed a new Russian trade mark of hygiene paper products with the ‘German roots’. The agency was tasked to develop a new brand that would tell about the product high quality (which is produced using Austrian cellulose and German equipment) and its affordable price. At the same time the brand must be clear, simple and emotional, appealing to a large audience.

    As a result, there was created a brand character - a lamb with a German name Reina (‘Rein’ in German is ‘pure’). An emotional image of lamb Reina is all about tenderness, sincerity, care and sensitivity. These qualities were essential for the manufacturer as representative features of their brand. The values that it conveys to the consumer are taking care of family and children, housekeeping, the desire to create coziness and comfort.

    All members of the family cherish kindly feelings for the lamb: small children – because it looks like their album drawings, and very demanding adults simply can not pass by those friendly eyes!

    In addition, due to the graphical methods there has been achieved the perception of the brand as a high-quality German product, taking into account the features of German production technology.

    The trade mark guarantees the product high quality and the exclusive production using natural raw materials, as well as the affordable price for the customer!

    Client: Lemonarie
    Packaging Content: Lemonade
    Location: Russia

    This summer the STUDIOIN team continued development of their non-alcoholic traditions and created an image for the line of lemonades named «Lemonarie».

    This time the creative team faced a task to maintain the classical style of European soft drinks based on lemon. For this purpose, it was decided to give the brand the natural shape of a lemon and achieve a maximum realism. The design is intended to distinguish the «Lemonarie» from the rest by means of communication between not only a consumer and external design, but product form as well.

    A stylized label keeps the feeling of home-made product. The bottom part of the bottle is transparent, thus it intensifies the perception of the product as a lemonade and makes the drink’s colour visible. Subsequently, the task to come to an actual and communicative visual decision for the new brand has been solved.
