New packaging for Punch Food's Superseeds range designed by B&B Studio, United Kingdom

Superseeds is a range of flavoured seeds available in five varieties, all of which are 100% organic, gluten and dairy free. These include Chili Smoke, Maca Caramel and Japanese Tamari. It is the first product from UK health food business Punch Foods, which looks to balance artisanal practice with optimal nutrition and punchy flavour.

Taking their inspirations from the origins of each variety, and the punchy flavour that characterises the Punch Foods brand, London based graphic design studio and packaging specialist B&B Studio worked with the brand to developed a visual identity and packaging treatment for Superseeds. This replaces a tired and low-impact design with one of modernity and distinction—in form, colour and high contrast.

Tapped Birch Water by Horse, United Kingdom

Opinion by Richard Baird.

Package design for flavoured birch water brand Tapped by UK graphic design studio Horse

Tapped is an organic birch water, drawn straight from trees growing in Finland, and available in Bilberry & Lingonberry, Apple & Root Ginger and unflavoured varieties in the UK from Whole Foods Market, Planet Organic and online.

Birch water is a traditional spring time drink and medicinal ingredient in Finland, tapped from birch trees which filter ground water up through their roots and trunk acquiring minerals, vitamins and manganese, an antioxidant, in the process.

Tapped worked with UK based graphic design studio Horse to develop a brand identity and package design that would communicate the Nordic and birch tree origin of the water, distinguish it from other waters, be compelling to a market unfamiliar with the product and also be environmentally conscientious.

Unoco Raw Coconut Water by B&B Studio, United Kingdom

Opinion by Richard Baird.

Branding and packaging for raw coconut water brand Unoco by London based graphic design agency B&B Studio

UK based Unoco works with a community of smallholders in the Philippines to produce an unrefined, unpasteurised and untreated raw coconut water. This is drawn from young coconuts, characterised by their green rather than brown colour, picked at their nutritional prime and placed into bottles rather than tetra pak or cans using HPP. This process gives the water a distinctive pink colour, a result of oxidisation, which is said to be confirmation that all the natural goodness of the water has been retained.

Graphic design agency B&B Studio recently worked with Unoco to reinvent its brand identity and package design, and embraced an approach that favours bold organic typography, bright colour and plenty of white space as a way to express the rawness of product within a category dominated by processed alternatives.
