Lesley’s Gourmet is a US based confectioner founded by caterer and event planner Lesley Clapham that makes french-styled artisan chocolates, fruit bars and chutney from natural, organic ingredients. YUI Studio was commissioned to develop the packaging for Lesley’s Fine Artisan Chocolates range, delivering a clear plastic substrate and uncoated paper combination alongside a silver print finish to create subtle contrast throughout.
DD MM YY is an organic tequila product from the Jalisco region of Mexico. Each production of DD MM YY is visually represented by a historically significant date, these include the moon landing in ’69, the end of WWII in ’45 and the signing of the Koyoto agreement in 2005. The branding and packaging, developed by design agency Yujo, emphasise theses global events with a striking typographic solution and a tactile stamp aesthetic.
Black Goat is a pre-packed organic coffee product that will be sold (under the brand Espresso Republic) by Dripp, a coffee shop soon to open in Chino Hills, California. The packaging, created by Turkish independent designer Salih Kucukaga, draws its inspiration from Kaldi, an Ethiopian myth ascribing the origin of coffee to a goat herder and Islamic holy man, and blends the geometric patterns of Arabesque, a simple but stylised goat motif and hand-crafted logo-type.
