Violeta is described by Anagrama, the design studio behind its new brand identity and packaging treatment, as an Argentinian bakery, named after its founder, that creates hand-crafted breads, cakes and pastries from its location in the Buenos Aires district of Las Lomas de San Isidro. Following more than 30 years of business and in lieu of a plan to begin franchising in the US, the bakery commissioned Anagrama to develop a new visual identity which included logotype, packaging and stationery design.
Utilising a distinctive, slightly awkward retrospective and generously spaced custom sans-serif logotype alongside Futura Heavy, a striped pattern detail, shield, limited colour palette, stickers and gold foil print finish, Anagrama’s approach effectively balances an everyday accessibility with a high-quality, sophistication and heritage in a visually concise way. The project included business cards, packaging and menu design.
The Tomato Stall is a grower of speciality tomatoes whose distinct flavour is attributed to the increased sunshine they receive from being farmed on the southern English island of the Isle of Wight. From these, The Tomato Stall produces a range of ‘tomato inspired’ artisanal products that are stocked by farm shops and delis throughout the UK and sold from their own market stalls across London and the south.
With a desire to appeal to ‘sophisticated foodies’ and achieve a more established market position capable of meeting the needs of big supermarkets, Designers Anonymous developed a new brand identity and packaging treatment that delivers a clearer brand story, has a strong sense of provenance and a contemporary crafted sensibility through custom typography, bright colour and illustrative flourish.
Dadadum is a Swiss contemporary furniture brand created out of respect for and in homage to the functionality, technical expertise and minimalism associated with Swiss design, and that strives to bring out the beauty of each raw material. The brand draws on the ‘talents of local designers who have made an international name for themselves and whose specifications are to re-establish the notion of Gute Forme as espoused by Max Bill’. Developed by design studio and co-founder Demian Conrad Design, Dadadum’s new brand identity uses Swiss sans-serif typography and a grid based approach that plays with letter space to convey the core values of modularity, playfulness and origin.
