Basket is a family run business located in the Serbian village of Golubinci who produce baked, additive and preservative free foods, made by hand from whole-wheat flour. Replacing a local but rudimentary aesthetic with a more commercial and communicative resolution of design conventions, Peter Gregson, working in collaboration with illustrator Marijana Rotthat, utilised contrasting type, plenty of white space, certifications front of pack and a loose illustrative style to neatly convey authentic regional hand craft and high quality in a contemporary way.
Zealong is a brand of high quality, traditional Chinese, single origin oolong teas made from organically grown leaves, described as thicker and having more flavour, hand-picked by skilled Taiwanese technicians from an estate in the Waikato region of New Zealand. Zealong is the only tea brand certified to the highest ISO food safety standards and has the ability to trace each batch back to the day and location of its picking.
Lo Siento have recently completed branding and packaging work for Triticum, a Spainish bakery founded by Xevi Remón. Based around a combination of a weighty, uncoated, unbleached substrate, rubber band, sticker, stamp and greaseproof paper. The structural design solution delivers a familiar, earthy, traditional and practical sensibility alongside the more distinctive and proprietary qualities of a non-adhesive, product specific form that allows the boxes to completely foldout. A smart concept that unites commodity and craft, and treats bread making with the same reverence as cakes and pastry.
