Yum Nuts

10 21 2013 yumnuts 1

Designed by Make and Matter - Yum Nuts is a line of organic nuts and trail mixes. I love the settle touches of sun-rays on the front of the packaging giving it consistancy throughout the line. Along with the bold typography in "Yumnuts" with the natural color palette definitely conveys the message of 100% natural.

Hanson of Sonoma, Organic Vodka

01 22 14 hansonofsonoma vodka 1

Stranger & Stranger created a beautiful range of organic vodka for Hanson of Sonoma. Hanson is a family firm making grape vodka in California wine country and they pride themselves on their quality control to such an extent that every bottle is checked, hand labelled, numbered and signed by the three brothers. 

The top label is beautifully set with a slight varnish. We absolutely love the bottom label with different fields for different custom elements to be stamp, numbered and sign, which reflects the quality and thought process that goes into each and every batch.

Bouch Burger Bistro

1 20 14 BouchBugerBistro 1

Designed by Firmalt, Bouch Burger Bistro was created with the intent of perfecting the burger. Each burger has been carefully crafted to provide a unique and thoroughly enjoyable flavor.

The burger is created from the ground up, which means the bread, sauces and spices are made in-house to guarantee quality. The concept is inspired by small specialty butcher shops, where products are hand-picked to ensure the finest and freshest selection for their clients. It was important for the brand to represent quality products, with a certain charm and friendliness.

The packaging was designed having in mind that it had to be practical for transport (for delivery and pick-up), easy to use, and cost-effective. Measures were taken to optimize material, as well as intelligent use of tints & finishes to reduce costs to a minimal, and maintain presentation to a maximum.
