Vastese designed by Two Of Three


Vastese is a family run, Italian bakery with over 50 years of experience supplies products across Australia. Their new visual identity, as part of a re-branding exercise, was created by design studio Two Of Three to better embody the family’s heritage and passion for fresh, good quality products.

“The branding had to reflect this heritage so we created a logo that both signified their Italian background as well immediately communicating their industry; a hybrid of an olive branch and a wheat sheath. The aim of the project was to elevate Vastese’s branding to a premium level to reflect the quality of their products while still maintaining a rustic Italian aesthetic.”

I really like the idea behind the ‘V’ logo-mark, the blend of olive branch and wheat sheath feels subtle and smart enough to mark it out as unique amongst a multitude of other wheat logo-marks. Its asymmetrical form creates a natural sense of movement and could be perceived as a tick (representing quality) or the impression it is blowing in the wind. The gold and black colour choices are a little generic but suitably reflect the aspects of heritage and high quality while the green, white and red add a touch of Italian authenticity to the brand. I personally have difficulty with an outlined type and from a distance it looses a bit of its impact but the modern style contrasts well against the serif selection. On-line the brand is complimented with some nicely shot photography that reinforces a distinctive, rustic and traditional charm.

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.
