Berendo, one of the few distributors of high-quality, certified organic coffee, commissioned Écorce to transform its visual identity. The new design features a artistic "B" that represents the roots and elves of the plant.  "The 'B' outline is therefore the foundation of Berendo’s new visual identity, with different colors and logo interiors being used on the label of each Classic coffee product, in order to highlight their individual characteristics. This differentiation is a key element of Berendo’s revamped identity, as it reflects the unique nature of each coffee."        Related Posts:GreenLifeOnyx Coffee Lab Roasters Choice Packaging

Roots & Bulbs

(4 years ago)
Juicing has taken the United Kingdom by storm and new company, Roots & Bulbs, has responded with London’s first cold pressed juice bar. Their first shop recently opened on Thayer Street (off Marylebone High Street) with branding and packaging by renowned branding agency, Robot Food. The packaging and in-store messaging is simple and informative, with categories such as ‘G’ for Greens, ‘C’ for Carrot and ‘A’ for Almond Milk. Numbers have been added to the initials to signify sweetness in the style of a periodic table, and staff proclaim their own juice choice on the back of their T-shirt. “I’ve been juicing for a while and it’s great working with Roots & Bults because they so passionate about what they do. It’s always fun to see your packaging on shelf, but nothing beats walking in to an environment you’ve helped shape.” - Simon Forster, Creative Director at Robot Food        Related Posts:CuckooGreenLife

Getaway Pilsner

(4 years ago)
Getaway Pilsner is the 5th flagship offering by Stillwater, Minnesota’s Lift Bridge Brewing Company, and its second beer presented in a 16oz. can. The can was designed by Studio2 and produced by Rexam. The visual impact had a link to the past that the founders of the brewery appreciated. When they started Lift Bridge, it was with the intention of bringing brewing back to Stillwater and the St. Croix Valley, which had a history of brewing beer from the 1800s until Prohibition. It was important for Studio2 to be able to leverage unprinted areas and create a natural “aluminum color” to represent the sheen and reflective nature of automobile chrome. Doing so also added a depth to the illustration what would not be possible by relying on six spot colors. Lift Bridge is all about “reflecting the St. Croix [Valley] lifestyle—a little more relaxed, a little bit of a throwback,” Lift Bridge CEO Dan Schwarz says.        Related Posts:Brasserie Artisanale du ChâteauGrapevine Craft Brewery & Lakefire Rye Pale Ale 

Concept: Disaster Machine Pedals

(4 years ago)
Disaster Machine is a non-existent guitar effects concept brand created by Johann Vernizzi. The packaging features a un-traditional, colorful, and rock 'n' roll design. "It all started with the brand concept. The main goal was to create a logo that would represent the brand: raw, aggressive and noisy. So, the logo is basically formed by a 'iron forged' font, held inside a chainsaw.  The second step, was to design the products. They all have a similar base, but their size depends on the effect itself (the fuzz pedal, for instance, is the larger one). They were designed to be the most simple and resistant as possible, since guitar players will step on them with all their strength. The focus was on their unique decals. The box is made of plastic and acrylic."        Related Posts:Aroma R-evolutionSQUA(RED) Reader
