Mrs Weinstein’s designed by Studio MPLS

Mrs. Weinstein’s is an American handmade toffee brand with a heritage that dates back to 1964 and recipes that have been past down through generations. In order to accommodate an ever expanding product line, which includes a new popcorn range, Mrs. Weinstein’s recently commissioned Studio MPLS to develop a packaging solution that would establish a coherent and communicative system for current and future products.

While there has been a bit of disingenuous appropriation of a perceived American heritage aesthetic recently, one frequently labelled as a trend, it is easy to recognise its appropriate utilisation here.

As a range there is a solid use of colour, pattern and photography that clearly indicates and divides product type but which are collectively bound by typography, small illustrative detail and a structural choice that reflects the form of the product. Each appears warm, authentic, regional and batch produced rather than mass manufactured, and neatly balance past and present through the good quality, contemporary execution of retrospective flourishes.

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.
