Before & After: Riso Flora

(4 years ago)
"Flora appeared on the marked in the late ‘60s introducing the Parboiling process in Italy and becoming the leader in the newly created segment. Later the company extended its range in order to meet the most recent market trends. However, the new lines did not get all the recognition they needed as the brand was mainly associated to its most successful product: the parboiled rice."BREAK objective was to create a new, strong brand identity, in order to make the brand more independent from the parboiled line and give value to all of its offering. A new graphic system was also needed to present the range in a clear way, give it more visibility on shelves and add more premiumness to it.         Related Posts:Before & After: La Brea BakeryNibMor

The brand name comes from the spanish word vivir and vida, meaning living and life. These words make direct reference to the product's natural and purifying properties.  "Honesty, one of the main values that the brand represents, is the main reason we decided to maintain the consistently simple and concrete graphic language in the logotype and packaging. The main reason we decided to use product images on the packaging was the need to make sure one of the main product traits, being pure and trustable, was communicated effectively. In addition to this, we located the product description on the upper part of the packaging making it easier to be read through the opening process for it's consumption."        Related Posts:Whole Foods BrooklynBefore & After: La Brea Bakery

(4 years ago)
Hornall Anderson was commissioned to re-design the La Brea Bakery brand that had been untouched for 25 years. Finding inspiration by the nostalgic heritage of La Brea's bread and bakeries, the re-design continues to pay homage to the bakery and its core values.  "With their 25-year anniversary in 2014, La Brea Bakery – one of the country’s leading producers of artisan breads for restaurants and grocery – partnered with global brand design firm Hornall Anderson to help transform the bakery’s brand identity. Why the need for change after a quarter century? There was early recognition that the extraordinary love and affinity towards the craftsmanship behind La Brea Bakery bread, a key hallmark of the brand, was not being clearly articulated on pack or in the overall brand expression."        Related Posts:Whole Foods BrooklynStudent: Sensi Sweets Edible Cannabis
