Pack of the Month: GATHER Pet Food

Forget “employee of the month” or high school superlatives—this is The Dieline’s Packaging of the Month. This monthly feature offers an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at one of the most popular designs that’s appeared on the site. It gives you the opportunity to learn more about the designer or agency behind the product, why they designed it the way they did, and why we here at The Dieline love it. For November 2016, we spoke with Matthew Clark, Founder and Creative Director of Subplot Design Inc. and Jamie Turkington, VP Marketing at Petcurean Pet Nutrition about their design for GATHER Pet Food.

Patagonia Long Root Ale

For years, Patagonia has been known as the go-to store for camping and adventure gear. And what goes better with the great outdoors than a cold beer? Patagonia Provisions and HopWorks Urban Brewery teamed up to create a Long Root Ale, the first of its kind—made with Kernza®, a soil-regenerating perennial grain. Hype Type Studio was responsible for designing the special brew, incorporating the oh-so-recognizable Mount Fitz Roy.

Generous Wines of Bodegas Salado

Here’s a refreshing take on a bottle of wine. The Generous Wines of Bodegas Salado turned to TSMGO | The show must go on for a design that would honor its history while still getting it closer to younger audiences. The wine’s production process has remained the same since 1810, and this is exactly what inspired TSMGO’s approach. They aimed to have a premium design that feels modern in its fine details, while also remaining faithful to the Andalusian origins of the brand.

John Barr Whisky

“Raise expectations.” Although John Barr was an award-winning Scotch whisky, it needed an update to the packaging to indicate the product’s high quality. Since it was recently improved, Cue was tasked with redesigning the spirit and giving it a new design in preparation for a re-launch. The approach has an emphasis on tradition, while still looking bold and different enough to stand apart from the competition. Its look is updated and modern enough to catch the attention of younger consumers, but the premium quality can be seen instantly with a sleek label and gold accents.
