Bakonybéli designed by Dora Novotny

Packaging designed by Dora Novotny for premium Hungarian jam Bakonybéli.

Bakonybéli is a line of premium Hungarian jam that includes blackberry, rose hip and mulberry varieties. The packaging and labels, designed by Dora Novotny, were required to blend a sense of playfulness and exclusivity to position the products as a high quality gift item.

The illustrations, based around the individual flavour varieties, are neatly done delivering a decorative and elegant style with plenty of detail to visually position these as higher priced items. The juice drops on the lid illustration while different in execution add a touch of fun and avoid contradicting the exclusive nature of the product. The typography is unusual and interesting successfully complimenting the traditional tone of the images while the external packaging (designed to look like a tree) creates a strong sense of season and occasion and reinforces the brand’s key proposition.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
