Crit - Dallmayr

For last week’s Crit on The Dieline I reviewed the packaging for a new range of premium chocolates created by Munich based delicatessen, luxury food store and restaurant Dallmayr, a company with a history dating back to the 17th century. Their new 15 bar range, branded and packaged by fpm mixes illustrative and typographic detail, seals and stickers, a pale colour palette and an unusual segment shape to capture, with a contemporary sophistication, the traditional crafted quality of the range and the heritage of the brand.

Crit - The Big Pot Company

For this week’s Crit on The Dieline I reviewed the packaging for a range of fresh, handmade soups produced by the Big Pot Co. Designed by Dublin based Pierce Communications the solution mixes a local and traditional chalkboard aesthetic, bold typography alongside light hand drawn script and illustrative detail to capture the regional and batch produced nature of the soup.

Crit - Bebe de Foret

For this week’s Crit on The Dieline I reviewed the packaging for Bébé de Forêt, a new range of organic skincare products from South Korean brand Green Finger. Bébé’s packaging, created in house by Kimberly Clarke partner Yuhan-Kimberly, mixes an usual plant pot structural design and a playful illustrative typographic combination that draws a parallel between child and plant growth to reflect the all natural and organic ingredients used throughout the range.
