SID LEE Toronto developed the brand identity and packaging design for Blue Goose, a Canadian-based organic and natural food company that specializes in high quality beef, chicken and fish. Design inspiration came from visiting a Blue Goose farm in British Columbia; seeing the land, the environment, and how well the animals were being treated. The brand’s story is embedded in all aspects of its identity and packaging, with the use of hand-drawn illustrations to provide a rich and detailed representation of the natural environment and excellent conditions in which the animals were raised.
Patakukkonen is a Finnish traditional oven baked kukko (pie) made from regional ingredients. The brand was inspired by the owner grandmother's cooking, which in turn prompted us to incorporate snippets of the actual family history through authentic photographs. The packaging allows the product to be merchandised 5 different ways, working around the challenge presented by the diverse environments where the product would be showcased and ensuring flexibility and visibility.
To create a series of Coca-Cola cans which spread millions of Tet wishes nation wide. We utilized Coca-cola's Tet symbol (the Swallow Bird) as the device to form these wishes. For each can, hundreds of hand-drawn swallows were crafted and carefully arranged around a custom script, which together form a series of meaningful Vietnamese wishes. "An", means Peace. "Tai" means Success, "Loc" means Prosperity. These words are widely exchanged throughout the holiday, and traditionally adorn Tet decorations.

Our vision was to „think“ the world of wine anew. We wanted a graphic pattern to visualize the taste and character of six different wines. The letter M, with lines in a 60-degree angle, acts one the one hand as a key visual and unites all of the bottles under one corporate design. On the other hand, the varying shades of color and the individual patterns provide a tasteful indication of whether the wine is sweet, full-bodied or effervescent. To enhance the visualization of the wine character, we chose earth- and fresh warm colors as well as soft yellow or green tone.
