Before & After: Amy's Kitchen

(8 years ago)
Honey Creative redesigns the Amy's Kitchen range to prepare it for its introduction into the UK market: "Amy’s is an organic, natural range of frozen vegetarian foods. It is No 1 in the US and sees a chance to build its business in the UK. This is a company which, despite its size, is still run by the founders, who impose exacting standards of food quality and ethical behaviour. Amy’s had to explain its proposition to a new audience – family business, handmade foods (they even pull the pizza dough by hand) with the highest standards – in the frozen sector, an area not known for high, artisan quality.The frozen food area is mainly about strong, simple branding, often of quite low priced products. There is an opportunity to work by contrast, emphasising the difference of this range from anything currently on offer."

Student Spotlight: Portfolio - The Game

(8 years ago)
"The Idea was to create a playable game designed for creative professionals. The game pieces that the players can choose from include art careers including design, drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Along the way the players will fall on “career advancement” tiles or “career disappointment” tiles and they must choose a card that makes the player move back and forth accordingly.
