Designer: A–B –D is a design agency Sweden

Delights of Sweden “If you’ve got a crisp bread that actually’s got flavour, you’d be a fool
not to put it in the heart of the brand strategy and packaging concept.
So that’s exactly what design agency A–B–D did. The task of creating a new brand in one of the most traditional categories in the Swedish food markets isn’t that easy. Especially not when the world leader is Swedish with nearly 70 % of the market and Swedes eat more crisp bread then any one else, making it as Swedish as IKEA and the traditional design nothing you muck about with. ‘We had a discussion about weather to just make a modernised version of the traditional design, but with a true challenger like this we had to make consumers take notice even if they weren’t looking. We had to puncture that autopilot that made them buy the same traditional woodlike flavourless bread every day and focus on the core idea of the product The flavor,’ says Design Director and founder Fredrik Bengtsson. Instead of making a coherent brand name for the different flavours A–B– D therefore made the flavour the most prominent part of the packaging. Brand recognition thereby is based not on the company name but by the bold numbers on the front of the packaging, which automatically puts the flavour at the core of the brand. This need to stand out is also evident in the colours that create a rainbow on the shelves. The brand isn’t just about the numbers and the colours. We’ve also worked a lot with the tone of voice creating different characters with their own story related to each flavour. We want people to smile when they pick it up. Put a little heart in to it and make it about something else than just the numbers,’ says Fredriks Bengtsson.”

Rezept Destillate An incredible packaging design for Swiss fruit spirits, based on the principle of “reduction to the pure essential”: Rezept–Destillate is an assortment of different pure fruit spirits from a local Swiss producer. The packaging design reflects the process of distillation, during which the fruits are reduced to theirs flavor essences. This approach leads to a unique brand concept incorporating the context of pharmaceuticals at the beginning of the last century. The labels refer to the periodic table and imply the products‚ elementary purity. Though simple technical solutions had to be found for its production, the design now evokes an impression of high class and exclusiveness.

Since 1987 Melbourne

Aesop Since 1987, when the company launched in Melbourne, Aesop has not wavered from its intention to create a range of superlative products for skin, hair and body. While we remain committed to including the highest–quality plant–based ingredients, we also make judicious use of non–botanical elements such as anti–oxidants, once we are confident that research has proven them safe and effective. The exquisite scents for which Aesop is renowned are an incidental treat.

A1 Scrabble The A–1 Scrabble designer edition. The purpose of this project was to revive an old, but loved game: Scrabble. The idea was to excite people about typography by giving them the ability to choose what font their scrabble set would come in. The set would come in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.
