Anchor Protein+

PROJECT

Introducing the fresh new look for Anchor Protein+. With a growing consumer demand for protein products, we were briefed to design new packaging to overcome perceptions that protein yoghurt wasn’t tasty, yet still communicate the benefits of protein in a distinctive and relevant way. We developed a ‘circle of flavour’ device to work across all products, helping shoppers navigate across the range and as a key visual device on advertising. This Greek style yoghurt is creamy, delicious and full of flavour. Protein+, Delicious fuel for life.

Blackbird Finance

PROJECT

Blackbird Finance are a specialist lender for importers or dealers in the motor vehicle industry. They allow their clients to secure finance of vehicles that are in transit or still getting compliance. We partnered with Blackbird Finance to redefine their brand from a dated, traditional corporate brand into a emotive brand that would help them stand-out in the marketplace. To do this we worked with Andrea Minini, a world renowned Italian illustrator based in Novara to craft the new Blackbird.

Montana NZ Collection

PROJECT

Pernod Ricard identified a commercial need to launch a new product into the Montana wine offering at the super premium price tier.

Our brief was to capture quintessential Kiwi brand Montana’s brand essence ‘Genuinely sharing wine since 1934’.

As New Zealand has such a rich history, capturing this in just one design was proving to be a challenge, so we created 20 individual illustrations of our unique Kiwi heritage – nostalgia but in a modern way, with an eccentric twist to make up ‘The New Zealand Collection’.

The illustrations represented easy to recognise Kiwiana icons, with each varietal having their own charming, tongue in cheek flavour cues to connect the consumers to their favourite wine – a farmer leaning on a lime for the Crisp and Zingy Sauvignon Blanc, a shot putter throwing a giant cherry for the Pinot Noir.

It’s an iconic range that showcases the unique, inventive and most cherished parts of our culture – what makes us, us!

Culley’s Hot Sauce

PROJECT

Culley’s started off selling home-grown, home-made sauces in farmer’s markets back in 2010, and has since then achieved phenomenal success with a range of products in supermarkets, restaurants and specialty food stores throughout New Zealand and overseas. While the growth was great for the business, it meant that there wasn’t time to take stock, and develop a strategic vision and brand strategy for the company and product range.

We developed a brand essence for their core chilli sauce range around ‘flavour, fire, flair’. Their maverick and bold approach to making sauces was brought to life on pack through bespoke illustrations for each of the products, giving the range exceptional shelf standout, and a bottle any chilli head would be proud to put on their table.

Tip Top Bakery

PROJECT

Tip Top is the largest brand within the bread aisle. The existing family was made up of 36 SKUs and was fragmented, with confusing message hierarchies and inconsistent naming conventions. Our task was to create more cut through at shelf and make the range easier to shop by having a portfolio architecture that makes sense to the target and felt like a family.

The vision was to encourage New Zealanders to rediscover their love of quality bread, redefining the role of bakery in their lives with renewed relevancy for modern Kiwi families. Extensive research found red was an ownable and recognisable brand asset, and had strong presence on shelf. The brand positioning ‘The bread with the love baked in’ was to be brought to life on pack.

Revised architecture moving from a sub brand model to an occasion model, reflecting how people shopped in the category. Consolidation of design and messaging across the overall category. Refinement of the ‘heart’ graphic, to bring the positioning to the forefront.

One SKU (Goodness Grains) was in danger of being deleted. It is now being 90% recommended by consumers. Sales have increased significantly across the category.

Tegel

PROJECT

Once renowned for its bright blue colour and big red T, Tegel had become a brand of many different looks across both packaging and the brand mark itself. Our job was to strengthen the logo and redefine the Tegel blue – an intrinsic characteristic that we couldn’t shy away from.

We re-ignited Tegel’s brand by giving it a heart and soul, through a dynamic family look that could stretch across 240+ SKUs nationally as well as an extensive export portfolio. The design needed enough flexibility that it could target different need states across every category.

Waste-Not Kitchen

PROJECT

Every year, Kiwis send over 123,000 tonnes of food to landfill that could have been eaten. Waste-Not Kitchen has been set up to repurpose good meat waste from Farro Fresh that would have been sent to landfill, in to nutritious soups, providing meals for those in need by using a ‘buy one, give one’ approach. By buying one Waste-Not Kitchen soup, they donate one to families in need in our local community. Their overall mission is to achieve zero meat wastage in New Zealand, by re-purposing surplus meat to nourish the lives of those in need.

We worked with Waste-Not Kitchen to develop their brand and packaging, and created these charming little character illustrations for their flavours. In just 2 weeks, Waste-Not Kitchen had already gifted over 200 soups to those in need, and saved good meat going to landfill.

Good for you. Good for the community. Good for the planet.
