Schepps Dairy by Michael Garrett

Packaging by Michael Garrett for Texas dairy Schepps' new range of infused milks

Schepps is a Texas dairy founded in 1942 with only a single truck and filling machine, today it has grown to become one of the largest dairies in the US producing over 6 million gallons of milk a month. As part of an effort to diversify their range Schepps approached designer Michael Garrett to brand and package a new infusion line that would deliver a more sophisticated proposition to the market.

This is a great design solution to the premiumisation of milk that cleverly blends (in a possible visual analogy to the nature of the product) classic black and white dairy references, elegant line work and a very nice glass bottle and cork structural aesthetic. The typographical work is really nicely handled both on the logo-type and product varieties appearing well balanced throughout. The contrasting matt black and polished white textures add an interesting wet and dry finish to the traditional glass milk bottle which should help to define a new category.

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.
