Olaf Olive Oil designed by Anagrama

Olive oil packaging design for Olaf by Anagrama

Olaf is a Mexican cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil produced by Olivarera Italo-Mexicana – a Mexican Italian collaboration – intended for healthy, home-cooked, family meals and makes up one-third of Olivarera ‘s olive oil range, which also includes Valentto and Olive Gold. Anagrama, the design agency behind Olaf’s new visual identity, print materials and packaging, describe their approach as taking “typical Italian visual clichés and simplifies and refreshes them.”

While the packaging lacks some of the print finish and material detail of the other two in the Olivarera Italo-Mexicana olive oil range, the use of the green structural choice to make up the third Italian flag colour alongside red and white papers feels like a really neat idea. Graphically the packaging and stationery has an few elements, a simple slab serif and a script logo-type – devices that balance the agricultural with the personal – alongside the economy of a single black ink across coloured uncoated papers gives it a local industry and crafted quality appropriate for the market. As part of the complete Olivarera Italo-Mexicana range you can get a good sense of positioning with each packaging treatment.

Support BP&O



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.
