Studio Spotlight: Eduardo Del Fraile
Is there something in the Spanish waters, or perhaps, the wine? This week we shine the spotlight on another Spanish studio/ designer, Eduardo del Fraile.
Accompanied by assistant designers as well as his sister, Ana who manages the studio, Eduardo del Fraile plays the role of Graphic Designer and Creative Director. Known for their work on branding and packaging for gourmet food and creative wine labels, DFraile Studio's door has been open for more than 5000 days. (yes, they are counting)
"The idea was to work as an innovative and itinerant restaurant with few tables and a very carefully crafted menu in which I play the role of designer and creative director." said Eduardo. "I resolve projects by taking a big-picture approach, from naming through to identity, packaging and product design, publishing projects, interactive projects and applications in spaces.
"Experience has shown me that a graphic designer can work on a product with a very personal vision. In my case I call it a 'symbolic product'. I hope you enjoy this selection of projects as much as I enjoyed designing them."
Yollibox Frozen Yogurt
"Yollibox is introducing frozen yoghurt for the Swedish market - made of only natural ingredients it's fresh alternative to ice cream and sorbet" Yollibox comes in a unique package, half way between a box and a traditional pint (if you ask me, it also resemblance a chinese 'take out' box).
Erenstråhle & Wågnert utilizes different elements to its fullest potential - from the typography, photography, to the info graphics in the back. A beautiful photo of a strawberry, mango, yogurt, and chocolate is displayed front and center, acting as a flavor cue for the consumer who walks by - there's no guessing what flavor it is. I applaud the effort in styling each photo so they all look uniform from one flavor to another - the over all shape remains the same. The designers tastefully grab key colors from the photography and used it through out the package. By adding a secondary color creates color combinations that are young, fresh and fun - what you expected to see in a frozen yogurt packaging.
Bunches & Bunches: Provisions
Branding agency, Miller Creative was tasked by Bunches & Bunches, a gourmet food company based in Portland, Oregon to create the brand identity and packaging for their line of savory products, Provisions.
Miller designed a brand mark and packaging system for their first collection of spicy molé sauces. Since the labels were printed as a small run, the special effects and materials costs had to be kept under control. Packaging was printed letterpress for a tactile and premium feel. Heat level was indicated with a small rubber-stamped seal, allowing for a smaller print run without the extra cost of another label or printing plate to indicate heat. The flavor seal adds an attractive touch, but also acts as a tamper-evident seal.
Lyle's Golden Syrup
"Brand design agency Design Bridge is pleased to announce details of its design for a limited edition Lyle’s Golden Syrup festive tin. Marking a long-standing relationship with Tate & Lyle Sugars, this is the third project of its type by Design Bridge, following successful limited edition tin designs in 2012 marking the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and Halloween. The limited edition Lyle’s Christmas tin was exclusively unveiled on Thursday 24 October as part of Selfridges ‘Gingerbread Lost London’ Christmas window display designed by Bompas & Parr and created by The Biscuiteers.
As part of the brief, the challenge was to celebrate Christmas whilst retaining the brand’s core equities such as the iconic arch shape, classic lettering style and Victorian detailing. Further key requirements were to highlight Christmas baking ideas, flavor and taste, and maintain a premium feel so consumers would view the tin as table-worthy.
Design Bridge ran an internal competition allowing the design team to explore different creative ideas. The strongest concepts were then developed and worked in with Lyle’s® core brand equities to create the final design. With detailing including a Christmas pudding, a traditional six pence, holly, Christmas crackers and filigree, the final design is rich with festive fun and delivers a premium look and feel."
