Packaging for UK based snack food brand Chow created by Studio h

Boutique design agency Studio h was recently commissioned to develop the visual identity and packaging for UK based snack food brand Chow and its first three products, Mini Chorizo, Beef Biltong and Queen Green Olives. Based around a non-format, cut and paste, mixed typographical approach and stamp texture, the design solution establishes a confident, quirky and playful brand personality while capturing the handcrafted quality and unexpected flavours of the product.

The combination of serif and sans serif, stencil cut and geometric detail mixes the contemporary with the traditional and an underlying sense of commodity that makes the packaging distinctive and expressive with very few elements. Its bright but rich colour palette neatly avoids the child-like or synthetic and works very well with the weight of the letterforms and clear surrounding space.

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.
