A concept range of cost effective, fun party products.
In each case the product name was developed into the pack logo, every product in the range has it’s own unique graphics and colour scheme. While keeping the brand values, a consistent feel was kept by using the different design elements in a similar way.
A brand developed specifically for one of OPT’s Australian retail clients, to replace an existing brand that was due to be fazed out.
Design Solutions started with a clean slate. This was a total re-design not an evolution of an existing range – a new name, new look and new products. A clean fresh look was needed, cost effective to produce and easy to print – we hit the nail right on the head with Casera!
An iconic New Zealand company, baking bread, rolls, buns, cookies and biscuits, for the New Zealand market and also for export to Asia.

A world leader in the manufacture and retail of electronics products, for home industry and business.

One of Auckland’s premier print companies, Soar purchased a new, packaging quality printing press and needed to tell its existing and potential customers about their new facility.

What a success – calls were coming in requesting more packs be sent out… although it may have been the chocolate temptation!
