Snarveien till by Strømme Throndsen Design

Packaging with hand drawn illustrative detail designed by Strømme Throndsen Design for Fjordland's ready meal and desert range Snarveien till

Fjordland is a Norwegian food producer specialising in ready meals, dairy products and deserts. As part of a continuing relationship Oslo based brand strategy studio Strømme Throndsen Design was commissioned to rebrand and repackage Fjordland’s ‘Snarveien till…’ range creating a series of hand drawn and water coloured illustrations, a script logo-type and bold typography to visualise the quality of the ingredients.

The sketch illustrations are what you might expect from a home made cookbook in their loose style that implies good, wholesome and honest ingredients. The watercolour treatment is vibrant and lively standing out well on the white background that gives the pack a fresh and distinctive style. The ‘Snarveien till..’ logo-type has a light energetic aesthetic that compliments the line work of the illustrations and contrasts against the weight of the sans serif typeface that combined have a healthy but hearty sensibility. A spacious layout allow the images to easily distil the brand message and while the peeling sticker is an unnecessary detail on the box its absence on the pots is a sensible choice. The colour palette is bright, light and natural with key tones to clearly differentiate the individual varieties and should give the brand significant shelf impact.

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.
