Packaging

Packaging describes and protects the contents, but it goes way beyond that, It broadcasts and reinforces the brand. For many brands, uniformity of trade dress or packaging is appropriate and part of the brand promise. However, for a private label system of a very eclectic brand that offers myriad categories, a uniform one-size-fits-all approach just didn''t work. Some items need to be attractive and gift-able, while others are everyday, value-priced pantry items that go straight into the cabinet. A lot of what you see below is fairly recent work from Cost Plus World Market, carefully deconstructed and transformed into fresh, purpose-driven packaging that transformed the food division.
