Proper Beans is a handmade baked bean range created in the English countryside and available from Fortnum & Mason. Proper’s mission is to “reinstate baked beans as the premium meal it once was” with six unique flavour combinations. These include Fava Beans & Smoked Pork Collar, Hamhock, Potato & Thyme and Smoked Bacon & English Mustard. The story and passion behind the brand, as well as the product’s Britishness and handmade quality, is visualised as a distinctive crest and simple packaging treatment designed by London based studio Interabang, and website by James Hayter and Mike Polom.
Miinus is kitchen created by Finnish furniture manufacture Puustelli. As the name suggests, Miinus was developed around the philosophy of reduction, the process of removing superfluous elements to leave only the minimum, most functional aspects intact. Helsinki based design studio Bond where commissioned by Puustelli to develop a brand identity for the kitchen that would extend across stationery, print, retail and exhibition spaces. By utilising uncoated and unbleached materials, an ink economy, a bold fact based typographic and iconographic approach alongside a more personal hand written script and photography, Bond’s solution effectively conveys the themes of robustness, lifestyle, high quality, natural material use and functionality with a communicative precision.
