Seafood Kitchen designed by Co Partnership

Packaging design by Co Partnership for Seafood Kitchen

In response to an increasing consumer interest in seafood, the owners of Gourmet Blends, an accompaniment to meat, fish and vegetable dishes, “saw an opportunity to take ownership of a market category” and commissioned Sydney-based design agency Co Partnership, who renamed and repositioned the brand as Seafood Kitchen, to develop a new visual identity and packaging solution.

Co’s approach takes the traditional sensibilities of an old style uppercase serif and conversational italic and sets these within the context of a contemporary colour palette that mixes a consistent deep-sea blue with a brighter flavour specific highlight. There is a good sense of space across the surface of the packaging which enhances the playful flourish of a die cut window across the front which effectively conveys the nature of the product with a dusted quality whilst providing a simple iconographic contrast to the detail of the typography. A tactile, uncoated, folded paper structural design manages to transcend this union of old and new with a retrospective practicality and category distinctiveness.

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.
