Fifty2: The My Private Brand Project | Theory House | The Dieline

Retail-owned brands have come a long way from the black and white generic labels of the 1970’s. The transition included a lengthy period of knock offs, where retailers introduced “me-too” private labels that closely mimicked the look of the national brands. Now, in his first book, Christopher Durham, Vice President of Retail Brands at Theory House, takes a focused look at private brands that have cracked the code and become true national brands.

Amazing typography book covers

Beginning with “New ways to kill your mother” from Colm Toibin the Irish novelist, essayist, journalist, critic, short story writer, playwright, journalist, critic, and, more recently, a poet, to typo a small book with a handmade cover from Walter Mati. We don’t knwo what these books all hide in their inner but they are all designed fantastically. Creating a book cover with such love in the fast modern industry of publishing is a real highlight. These covers show you why often quality is more important than quantity and why typography could support this.

Stitch it Yourself Calendar Kit | Heather Lins | The Dieline

Heather Lins created this fun DIY calendar that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Lins’s “2014 Stitch it Yourself Calendar Kit” looks like a simple product on the surface, but it took eight different vendors to create. She worked with PreferPack in North Aurora, IL on the tuck box. She also worked to make sure the PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors, Mohawk Britehue paper, and embroidery floss all coordinated.

Lins tells us the inspiration for her product:

    The concept behind the 2014 Year in Stitches Calendar Kit is inspired by cross stitch samplers and it combines my love of typography with DIY. I artistically arranged the letters of each month so there’s always a new design to cross stitch! I printed two color offset on kraftboard boxes to keep the package tactile—like doing the crafts themselves. No embroidery or cross stitch experience is necessary. Kids 8 and up can do these. You just poke the paper and stitch away!

It’s all in the details with Lin’s product. She has two types of calendar kits which feature different fiber and calendar cards. The monthly “Stitch the Stars Calendar Kit” features two color printing on kraft board, one custom colored masking tape, opaque white and glow in the dark screen printed calendar cards on French Nightshift Blue 100# cover, and one color printing on Wausau Royal Fiber 80# Cover Ice Blue. Included in the “Year in Stitches Calendar Kit” are: two color printing on kraft board, a custom colored masking tape, one-color screen printed calendar cards on French Speckletone Madero Beach 100# cover, and one-color printing on Mohawk BriteHue 65# cover.

The Great British Butcher

Design by Day created branding and package design for The Great British Butcher, a new range of British-inspired rubs and seasonings prepared by MRC Flava, a third generation family owned company that started out in the butcher trade back in the 1976. “With the rising popularity of farm shops and gourmet butchers, the brief was to come up with a brand identity and packaging that built on the company’s genuine British heritage, celebrates the tradition of the British butcher, and communicates good, honest quality”

Like the product, the packaging is simple, robust and wholesome, balancing both traditional and modern elements. The product’s British heritage is communicated subtly through the logo, and the vintage-style typography gives a clear nod to the past. Playful illustrations on the side of each tin highlight the importance of the carefully selected, quality ingredients. Quality flavors for quality meat!”

"We’ve worked with larger agencies in the past & have often been left feeling utterly ripped off with very little to show for it. I stumbled across DBD because I was looking for a small local agency who would dive fully into a new branding project and take real pride in what they were doing and that’s exactly what the guys and gals from DBD have delivered. A key USP of DBD is that they are ALL creative and fully understand the branding process, something you expect as standard from an agency but is so often lacking in my experience. Perhaps most importantly they are all nice people and I thoroughly enjoy working with all of the team." Scott Dixon, MRC Flava
