HUGHES DESIGN GROUP
PETER PIOPPO PHOTOGRAPHY
Since its debut in 1923, Mayfield Creamery has become an iconic brand across the Southeast.
Looking to expand its ice cream business, Dean Foods did research which revealed that its
packaging appeared dated and failed to create an emotional connection to the brand. The
redesigned packaging honors Mayfield’s core values, such as the brand’s storied heritage and
signature flavors. The structure is a standard ice cream scround tub that was maintained for
equity and category relevance. The yellow brand color evolved to a golden yellow to make the
brand appear more indulgent and premium. Product photography was shot with a single scoop
to increase taste appeal.

The packaging shows the product in environments where people typically would have concerns installing wood or laminate flooring. Also, the packaging was designed to enable customers to fi nd their preferred color easily and to peel away a portion of the box to see and touch the product.

brand owner | YUMAMI
Yumami’s bean-based dips influence our earthy palette with hints of bright yellow and orange, while the logo and ingredient illustrations allude to traditional Japanese art. In designing the packaging, it was crucial to incorporate the nutritious simplicity of the product and its Japanese roots. Millennials also are interested in transparency regarding snack ingredients. Consequently, Yumami’s packaging employs custom die-cut paperboard sleeves with an acetate window that allows shoppers to see the product.
brand owner | BAHLSEN USA
Bahlsen USA tasked QNY Creative to create the design for its 2017 holiday packaging for 2017, with a line extension for its Leibniz Choco product holiday gift two-pack. The cookie brand is known for its rich European heritage and a brand message of being together for the holidays. Consequently, illustrations to the label depicting family winter outdoor activities with the message, “Always Sweeter Together,” were added. The design includes a close-up of the chocolate covered biscuits to show shape and texture. Each color was carefully chosen to reflect winter scenes and create a pleasant color harmony.
brand owner | ACE HARDWARE CORP.
For many years, Celebrations has been an Ace Hardware brand of lightingfocused holiday decorations. A majority of the packaging in Celebrations Home will be hang tags, wraps and color boxes with clear windows. As a result, the product is visible and the packaging was designed to have basic descriptions, lending a rustic appearance. Consumer research helped Ace understand that brand awareness of holiday décor is very low, and consumers want to focus on the product and not the packaging.

PATTY WITTMANN, FOOD STYLIST
ANGIE NORWOOD BROWNE PHOTOGRAPHY
Baking, cooking and sharing food is all about connection, yet the baking category is dominated by a handful of food conglomerates with little differentiation. While Krusteaz has been a household name in the West for decades, the brand seeks a spot among legacy and bake-mix brands nationwide. An injection of visual personality and a strong, color-coded brand block helps the brand’s new design stand out on shelf. A refreshed brand badge and instructions improves brand awareness and product navigation. Since appetite appeal is key, the new look also employs mouth-watering photography.
brand owner | FLORIDA'S NATURAL
FRANCESCO TONELLI PHOTOGRAPHY

brand owner | NATURE'S BANDITS LLC
Nature's Bandits is an organic fruit and veggie snack created to replace fruit-flavored gummy snacks with minimal nutritional value. This package was created solely to appeal to kids. The organic call-out was very important to ensure consumers know this snack won't compromise healthy choices. The mascot, Ricky Racoon, waves to consumers as soon as the box opens, there is a total of 20 playing cards that can be collected within different boxes. Because the shape of the snack itself is not animal-shaped, the brand decided to bring cute critters into the packaging and cards.
