Sorry Sorry Hampers Design by Pitu Studio

Ramadan is the most awaited event in this country, as the majority of the Indonesian are Muslims. Traditionally, in the spirit of Ramadan traveling back home is one of the must things to do as we will celebrate Hari Raya with our loved ones.

It is been 2 years since the pandemic. A lot of people were missing their chance to come back home to their loved ones during the Ramadan. Finally, we are here now, we can travel back and celebrate Hari Raya as it is supposed to be! We are designing a special Eid Mubarak hamper as a sweet compliment to commemorate this moment. 

Inspired by the festivities of Eid Mubarak, bold, fun, and bright color combinations are used to celebrate these joyous moments. We hope that these special hampers can be the sweetest treats that can be shared with your family and loved ones during these special holidays.

Brand Identity for Limón by Goods & Heydays

Limón is a fast-casual food chain in Oslo, Norway, serving fresh pokés, mouthwatering ceviches, and healthy bowls. Inspired by the oceans that connect Norwegian fish with exotic South American tastes, the concept has inspired everything from Limón’s website that’s literally floating to perforated metal interior details that resembles fishing nets. 

All packaging is responsibly sourced and features bowls made from sugarcane pulp, lids from recycled PET bottles, and fiber cutlery instead of plastic.

Brand Identity for Fine Grazing by Both

Fine Grazing are known for their high quality, design-led grazing tablescapes featuring ingredients from Melbourne’s leading food artisans.

Working closely with the Fine Grazing team, Both implemented a new approach to their brand positioning and narrative, exploring the boundaries of food and design. The resulting visual identity is both formal and unconventional, and seeks to extend the same level of attention to detail seen in their event tablescapes to the Fine Grazing at-home offering. As a part of the brand positioning, Both worked on the art direction of a series of images celebrating the ingredients that form the core of Fine Grazing’s ethos.

The Fine Grazing stationery and packaging components utilize unconventional layouts to abstractly reflect the way in which grazing tables are often approached from many sides, and therefore viewed from different perspectives. Tactile finishes including delicate embossing and textured papers were selected to bring a sense of understated luxury to the at-home Fine Grazing experience.

Brand Identity for Omsom by Outline

A fiery, feisty food brand with a lot to say and even more to serve. Asian starters launched by two sisters in partnership with acclaimed chefs.

Outline’s work for Omsom was inspired by the change produced when forces collide, spark and create something new. Whether it’s an idea or your dinner – the whole becomes more (and different) than the sum of its parts. This cultural point of view, and the heat the founders put behind it, served as the concept for their bright brand identity.

The showpiece of the Omsom launch – the Sampler – featured Larb, Lemongrass BBQ and Sisig starters. The Sampler’s large format allowed us to keep telling the story of the visual brand’s fiery potential by letting the wordmark take over the space, replicating and distorting as it did so. The packaging is an oversized matchbox-style drawer with melting motifs framing the starters inside
