Outstanding by Design – Food Branding & Packaging

/ / /

Another great event being hosted on May 10th, 2014, by Keith Bohanna of Biabeag fame at Highbank Orchard, Cuffesgrange, Kilkenny. This workshop ‘Outstanding by Design’ will be a real treat for anyone in the food business, to learn from some great food producers and designers how smart branding and clever packaging can play a vital role in increasing sales.

Obviously good branding and packaging is something as designers we would always strongly advocate, and fortunately many of our clients have seen the proof of this. We are also mindful however that it is a significant investment for businesses and so it needs careful consideration. The relationship between the design team and the client is very important. A workshops such as this is really helpful as it will talk through the process by introducing 7 different food businesses along with the key designers involved in their design development who will tell their business stories and discuss the process.

We’re always fans of using illustration in our designs where we can and so its no surprise that we love Steve Simpson’s work for Mic’s Chilli Sauce. He will be there on the day to talk through this collaboration among other greats. The full day workshop priced at €75 includes a buffet lunch and in a beautiful small setting will allow mingling and discussions with all the attendees.
