    Label for 'Oleos' sunflower oil When designing the label for the exported sunflower oil, we were facing a challenge to depict the naturalness of the product, and to imply the geography of production without using any trite symbols. For the label we created a light watercolour illustration with a rooster and a rabbit settled in the reeds, heads of garlic and beans scattered all over, and a fish swimming by. The use of these surprising symbols, along with the traditional ones, made the imagery more emotional and vivider.

    Client: Ritual Coffee
    Location: San Francisco, US
    Packaging Contents: Coffee
    Packaging Materials: Compostable paper

    We've been Ritual's brand partners since the day they opened their first cafe in the Mission District of San Francisco back in 2005. Since then, we've all grown up an awful lot and it was time to revisit the original brand we'd created all those years ago. We've repositioned them and updated their brand identity, including their iconic logo. Once the new brand was set, it was time to apply the new look and feel across their line of coffee packaging.

    Over the years, the bags had lost their logo's recognizable cup and star and the design felt heavy. We transitioned from a non-recyclable foil bag to a compostable paper bag, bringing it in line with their customers sustainable lifestyle and giving it a more natural feel.

    One of the design challenges we faced was creating only two different bags, one for espresso and one for everything else. The roasters needed flexibility for several different roasts every month and wanted to move away from using messy, non-recyclable stickers. The bags also needed to feel special in order to command premium pricing and needed to work harder to stand out on more ever crowded retail shelves.

    We designed detachable paper belly bands that wrap around the bag to make it feel more like a gift. More importantly, it gave us the outside and inside surfaces to create messages not only about the coffee itself, but about the new Ritual brand. Now they can tell in-depth stories of farmers who grew the beans, educate coffee lovers with illustrated brew guides, announce cafe openings and events, and tell people that they believe being nice is just as important as making the best coffee.

    Unique illustrations of their farmer partners brings authenticity and personality to the packaging. Ritual buys 98% of their beans directly from their producer partners, setting the highest standard in the industry. This makes sure they not only get their hands on the best beans in the world, but more importantly, their farmers maintain the quality of life they deserve. Telling this story is a critical component of the packaging. The perforated belly band has a detachable, wallet-size card. It's a handy reminder for customers to use when it comes time to restock their favorite coffee. Friendly, detailed brew guides help Ritual share their great love of coffee in a fun and down-to-earth way. And because they can print the belly bands whenever they want, they have the freedom and flexibility to use them for more short term announcements and promotions.

    When it comes to packaging, design offers a limitless opportunity for new or even the most classic of brand packaging to vault to a ‘disruptor’ status. Becoming disruptive means taking a step outside the norm, standing above the rest, and impacting how consumers view your entire product category. This project was given to us with these thoughts in mind. What I decided to repackage are neck ties because the standard right now is a boring clip hanger with no imagination.

    A brand focused on products to save natural resources and money: inspired by the brand idea "smart people inspiring a smarter planet" we created RE. Meaning “do again”, RE brings many concepts to mind, such as REuse, REduce and REcycle. The identity has bold colors, typographies and phrases that leads to reflection and propose a wiser lifestyle, highlighted by its tagline: Rethink. The datasheets (technical boards used by suppliers and resellers) are grouped as needed, making it possible to customize and to reduce paper. The multi-functional packaging made of a durable and recyclable material comes with a seed paper that can be planted inside the package itself, with several possibilities of reuse. Bold, inspiring and truly sustainable, RE now stands out amongst its competitors in Brazil and abroad.

The scripture is considered to be the oldest in Europe, and it is related to commercial laws of the time, including the trade of olive oil. Its kind is call "voustrafidon" and it is read from right to left and then the other way, as shown below. As a tribute, we used this way of writing to write the Extra Virgin Olive Oil under the logo.

    Award-winning chocolate brand Willie’s Cacao has unveiled a new design across its core single estate and flavoured bars ranges.

    Having established the existing brand design in 2012, BrandOpus was challenged to build on the success and growth of the brand by refreshing the design to reflect the individuality and personality of the products and ranges. As the portfolio has grown over the years into a world of flavours and inclusions, the design has evolved to reflect the individual cues inherent in each product experience. This level of craft and detail needed to be introduced into the proposition of the core single estate range.

    The redesign aims to elevate the look and feel of the single estate origin by introducing personality that reflects the cacao’s unique characteristics. The emphasis of the descriptors has changed from country of origin to focus on a more specific provenance of each cacao to enhance the sense of discernment and appeal for true chocolate connoisseurs seeking an authentic cacao experience. The bright and colourful decorative embellishments reflect the destinations where Willie’s adventures led him to discovery the wide array of cacaos that make his chocolate so distinctive.

    The importance of single estate was also reflected in the design for the new Milk of the Stars, a single estate milk chocolate using a bean from Indonesia with intense caramel notes. This will sit alongside the existing Milk of the Gods Rio Caribe creamy milk chocolate with its nutty notes so bringing the whole discovery that different beans taste different to milk chocolate lovers too.

    Vrolijkheid® aims to be a new beer definition. Thinking of definitions we obviously thought of dictionaries. We approached the label design as designing a language manual. Since this beer edition is done in Holland by Nelemen, believed it relevant to make a reference to The Dutch Golden Age its freedom in press and typefaces that used to inspire William Caslon I (1692–1766) to design his serif typefaces. Using Adobe Caslon based on Caslon's own specimen pages we hope to give the fine detail and sharp contrasts that could make the beer sommeliers and amateurs transport to this acclaimed climate of intellectual tolerance that seemed to breath the Dutch Republic of the 17th century.

This is how the name of the wine has been formed: FELFELÉ. Its red color refers to the content of the glass. Furthermore I used the sights the foreigner like the most. Behind the Typography you can recognize the connection between the wine and the highland. I used the map of field in the wire frame construction.

    Horse designs limited edition mineral water

    Design studio Horse has created the packaging for a limited edition and collectible mineral water for Nongfu Spring, which celebrates the Chinese Year of the Monkey.

    The studio designed the core range of glass bottles for Nongfu in 2015, which feature various plant and animal species from the Changbai Mountain water source, and were tasked to create a collectible version for 2016.

    Ian Firth co-founder and creative director at Horse comments, “It was a natural progression from the core design to highlight the animal which represents 2016 in the Chinese Calendar, whilst also being sure to inject some fun to differentiate the limited edition run. A family of monkeys playfully swings from the branding and text on the bottle to reflect their cheeky spirit, and details are pulled out in gold foil to make it feel that little bit more special."

    Nongfu intends to create a limited edition design each year, for the next 12 years. Reflecting the family theme of the design, and in the spirit of celebration and giving - bottles will be given to families with newborns from this lunar calendar.
