Branding

Identity

My process began with researching similar brands, which lead to a differentiation strategy. Taking more of a vintage, yesteryear approach, I sketched a variety of logo concepts to convey old-timey family tradition.

Print

The design for FFP’s print marketing and product packaging took on a look and feel that conveys home cooking, small business, and high-quality ingredients. The product containers informed the shape of the labels, and a strategic color system reflected each product’s main ingredient.
