    Having worked in partnership with nutritionist and Mum, Lucy Jones, to create a new range of nutritionally balanced pots and pies, Little Dish turned to Pearlfisher to develop a vision, voice and series of packaging structures that would bring the nutritional credentials of the new meals to the fore.

    Jack Hart, Strategy Business Director at Pearlfisher, said, “The challenge we faced was to better connect parents to the brand’s mission of “feeding healthy kids” by showcasing how healthy Little Dish meals are as fresh and convenient alternatives to the processed trays and pouches available in the children’s aisle. We needed to reframe the consumer relationship with the brand and, as such, established a set of segmentation principles from which we created a reassuringly eclectic mix of products that felt homely, authentic and diverse but still held together as a range.”

    Taking inspiration from colourfully-enamelled cookware and the kitchen cupboard, Pearlfisher Strategy defined creative principles for Little Dish across six key equities: colour, texture, labelling, graphics, the role of form and the already appropriated family of “zoo crew” characters. Using this and deep immersions into Little Dish’s food preparation and packaging processes as blueprints for design, Pearlfisher’s 3D and graphic teams reintroduced cohesion and visual excitement to the range, managing to maintain the specialness of the Little Dish brand while establishing cues around quality, wholesomeness and health.

    Mike Beauchamp, 3D Design Director at Pearlfisher, said, “We used form, colour and material finish to hero the new Little Dish brand experience. The ‘pot’ and ‘pie’ containers are a first of their kind, with bespoke shape, colour, surfacing and embossed detailing on unique handles to communicate the brand’s premium quality and drive ultimate differentiation on shelf. We used the card sleeve to talk to both parents and kids: a deli-style sticker on the side of pack helps parents navigate stacked meals on-shelf, leaving the entire top face for kids to see Mabel the Cow skipping with a spaghetti string or Charlie the Chicken juggling butternut squashes. Graphically, we assigned bold colours to different protein sources to help with product identification and used handwriting cues to emphasise the youthful naiveté of the brand.

    Little Dish co-founder Hillary said of the redesign, “The Little Dish brand identity was born in the Pearlfisher building, and over the last ten years it has gone from strength to strength. Therefore, they were the only partners we trusted to help us take our brand into the future. What Pearlfisher has done is category-defining. They have brilliantly captured the spirit of the Little Dish brand, celebrated our nutritional credentials and repositioned our meals to parents looking for healthy and convenient meals for their little ones.”

    The Pots and Pies will be available nationwide in Great Britain from September 1st.

    Packaging Materials: Aluminium

    Warrior is a coconut water based energy drink with an easy-to-remember brand name and three distinct flavours. Known as nature’s sports drink, coconut water is a great way to boost your energy through the coconut’s high levels of minerals and potassium. This is one of the selling points which presents a healthy alternative to a market flooded caffeine based energy drinks.

    The warrior concept is based on the idea that we are all capable of great things and we only need a push to unleash the warrior within us that is capable of great feats. This inner warrior is represented by the three different masks used on the packaging.

    All the flavours and masks on the represent different warrior tribes: Watermelon - Monk, Pineapple - Mastermind, Black Currant- Knight

    The concept has two main targets:
    1. To attract the customers and to stand out from the numerous other energy drinks offered on the market.
    2. To create a simple and strong association with the brand, through the vibrant and distinct package design

    In order to create a super elegant packaging for this high end chocolate brand, I began the whole project with a monogram. First I tried to create a monogram that combines V, H and C three letters , but it turned out too complicated for this brand to convey the elegance. So I decided to just combine V and C. After trying hundreds of different sketches, I finally nailed it down to this current version. Next step I took was doing hand lettering for the logotype and the titles. All the letters I did showed a lot of care and well consideration.

    On packaging design class, the assignment asked the student to create a 'unique fictional product' and then randomly exchange it with another student in the class to do the packaging design.

    The random product brief I got is a fruity perfumed facial tissue for kids. It has three kinds of flavour (orange, grape, and apple) and the client wants the packaging to be extremely unique in triangle shape.

    After that I did some research about the market and competitors to find the problems before started with the design. The problems I found are:
    - So many competitors in Indonesia market
    - Unique packaging design usually create more waste, consider the sustainability

    To handle those problems, I came up with some solution from the brainstorming process:
    - Different approach from usual facial tissue packaging (competitors)
    - Display it in unique way to attracts buyers (color & display instruction)
    - Make it collectible and easily refilled (sustainable) with glueless design

    Form plays a vital part in creating an outstanding piece of packaging. Unfortunately it’s often overlooked. We started think packaging to address this problem. It wasn't just the fame, money and hot chicks, we wanted to rub out sub-standard box templates and send shivers down the spines of blister packs everywhere. Designing more than just boxes, we use cardboard engineering to tailor the package to the product. As a packaging specialist, think™ works with clients to deliver real solutions and create game-changing form.

    After six years in the packaging game we decided it was time to treat ourselves to a nice spot of re-branding, as well as indulge in some shameless self promotion to celebrate. The idea was to create a limited edition gift sent out to a handpicked few - existing clients and potential new ones. Our new logo carries cues of a blade or a flick of paper that is left over when a mockup is made. So with this in mind, we decided to focus on the humble scalpel (the primary weapon of the cardboard engineer) with the intention of elevating it from a commonplace studio tool to something luxurious and exceptional.

    The package starts off life as a sleek, understated cube, engaging interest and exploration. Upon lifting the lid, the precision mitred, hand-assembled walls effortlessly drop down exposing the knife, thrust into the base Excalibur-like. The scalpel's matte black chrome-plated handle and the blade’s rose gold tint, further enhance the feeling of precision, beauty and craft. A message stresses the limited edition nature of the gift: “you made the cut”.

    Cardboard engineering is about cutting, sampling and experimenting with form. The recipients are invited to take the knife out and use it. There are even four extra blades held on an insert, snug in the top of the lid, making sure that you always have a sharp blade to work with. They can be just like me!*

    Conduru is an exclusive chocolate that comes from a small cocoa plantation in Brazil. With this cocoa, 100 chocolate cylinders of 1 kg have been produced in order to get a limited series of 100 packs. The first of them, and always the most special, was delivered to Pierre Hermé, named the world’s best pastry chef at the 2016 World’s 50 Best Restaurants ceremony in New York.

    The concept and design of the pack come from the idea of taking advantage of the main material that farmers use to store the cocoa, the wood. So, we searched different kinds of wood, with different thicknesses, some natural woods, and some other with natural dying. The chromatic composition and the different thicknesses provide rhythm, spontaneity and a recall of respect towards the environment. The combination of colours and thicknesses of the wood make all the packs different. The cylindric form gives it a lot of personality and a touch of exclusivity. Also in the design of the brand Conduru, the use of different kinds of font with the unbalanced kernnings reinforce the idea of improvisation and the fact that it is a genuine pack. The cylinder of chocolate comes protected by golden metal paper, a color that combines perfectly with the different tones of wood of the outside. The pack gets closed by magnets.

    The Mastic tree grows in only one place on the whole planet – the southern part of the island Chios. No research has been able to prove the reason for this phenomenon, although, some older reports note that the uniqueness of the earth in the southern region of Chios can be explained by the volcanoes beneath the sea in that area. According to a local tradition, mastic is the “tear” of the bush for the tortures inflicted on Saint Isidoros in 253 A.D. under a mastic tree.

    The passion, enthusiasm and his deeply adore of Ioanni’s Sodis , which was Pharmacist and Chemist, became his dream true, and mastic was become a worldwide substance in cosmetology usage. Following the traditions of research laid down by his forefathers, Sodis has updated dozens of old remedies, as well as creating new products; in the early 1980’s he launched – in a commercial packaging – the world’s first mastic- based cosmetic, the Masticdent toothpaste, with special healing properties for the gums.

    Τhat pioneer person was my grandfather.

    Cosmetics that created and designed, based on my Grandfather’s manuscripts, which had the fortune to have in my hands, according his philosophy.

    To be produced based of organics and unique ingredients and at the same time to be handmade and full of our love and passion , instead of some lifeless machines.

    Working on these my mind forwarded to a new idea.So decided to create cosmetics made by mastic that would be ‘tailor made’ to each skin needs!So started to create these kind of cosmetics , which I think that it’s a completely unique idea!

    But how would be able to create something which was needed to be changed either to their usages or and their substances?

    These questions was puzzled my mind since was really difficult to find a solution which should be satisfied me for both, aesthetically and functionally.

    So decided instead of the basic cosmetics and their artwork, to design a special label for each one , which will be written manuscripted, the type of each skin, its needs and method of use, as well.

    While working on this project the team had to maintain an already well-known design with all its recognizable elements. At the same time, it was necessary to highlight the unique and exclusive character of a certain product line. In order to do so, the agency’s specialists have introduced a set of changes that made the overall look more neat and classy, while using an already present set of graphic elements.

    First of all the overall length of the label was extended in order to wrap the bottle entirely and increase the useful space for placing information. At the same time, the overall style remained intact while the main graphic elements were processed with special post-printing techniques in order to emphasize their visual impact.

    The main stylistic element of the brand – the sight of ellipsis – was used several times in different zones of the package in order to amplify the brand’s recognizability. Besides the central part of the label, where the sign is executed in gold foil stamping, the ellipsis is also present on the bottle cap, as well as the back of the bottle, where it is formed by the empty spaces between the edges of the label. This serves as a strong counterpart to the frontal image and amplifies the brand’s impact.

    Six friends had acquired a vineyard and wished to create a reputation for excellent wines with distinctive character, yet first they needed to explore different wine growing regions around the world to find inspiration and discover new trends. In short, they undertook what is known in trend scouting as "Cool Hunting" and a perfect name for their new wine label was born almost instinctively, for the six friends had become "Winehunters". An analogy to hunting typically comes to mind when referring to winehunters and so it was natural for a stylised target to be developed as a key element of the brand's corporate design, for it symbolises the accurate pursuit of perfection, while individualised logo colours increase the brand's overall flexibility across diverse media applications.

    The wines themselves equally embrace the hunting theme: The Pinot Noir is an ideal accompaniment to red meat and is robustly called "The Hunter" while the white Pinot Gris is a perfect companion to seafood and so bears the name "The Fisherman". Each grape variety is represented by an intuitively understandable image that cleverly illustrates both the name and provenance of the wine.

    "Winehunters" has been awarded with the Red Dot Award Communication Design 2016.
