Designed by Futura. “The client is a family business in Saltillo Coahuila. They harvest the fruits themselves and transform them into traditional candy and preserves.

They opened the doors of their business and their own home to us, treating us like family. Due to that we were able to get inspiration directly from their kitchen, where they had a lot of crocks made of pewter, a very traditional material used in Mexico for many years. That’s the reason why we used pewter texture as the main element of the branding. The client surprised us with very accurate references of design, places and food around the world, that motivated us to propose a different solution for their project.”

Scandinavian Coffee House from Norway. “At Scandinavian Coffee House we want to show our love for coffee and share the pleasure of enjoying it together. Coffee plays a central role in our culture as an important ingredient in people`s social life wherever and whenever we meet. Scandinavians have always travelled, so our culinary traditions are influenced by many others. Otherwise we would not have had coffee in the first place. We have embraced the coffee culture to such an extent that we have created our own – one that suits our palate and temper. At SCH we have designed a coffee program that shows our deep rooted traditions for coffee preparation. At the same time we are re-interpreting the presentation of it, dressed for a new era in coffee.”

The California based We love jam’s handmade apricot in a jar, sauces and other treats. You can buy them online and get them delivered to the door. 2002 they started to produce apricot jam in limites quantities from one very old tree, for family and friends. Very popular, so the selection expanded quickly to pickles, BBQ sauce, buisquits and more. Their products are all organic, on their web page they state: “We are the only nationally distributed company that packages everything we make in only recyclable or biodegradable containers/packaging/shipping materials. We never will use any plastic. We buy from local farms who do not use synthetic fertilizers or sprays. And of course we don’t use any artificial ingredients, flavoring agents, transfats, corn syrup, GMOs or other nasty stuff in the products.”
