For the Dutch brand Kips, Stepfive created two reclosable ‘out of home’ freshpacks for cheeses and meats including printable stickers. Each freshpack contains ten slices and is designed with an apparent color setting (yellow for cheeses and red for meats). The packs have a basic, clean design with clear Kips branding for optimum product visibility that convey top quality products. Kips is a brand of Zwanenberg Food Group.
Piece of cake for the urban grillmeisters behind their BBQ’s these days with the new and delicious Snack Skewers (Snack Spiesjes) from Dutch company Zwanenberg Food Group. Stepfive created the labels for this new product range. Each different taste variety has its own colour setting and the labels are placed at the top in order to have a good spot on the tasteful skewers.
Many food labels are confusing (and some downright misleading) especially with regard to animal welfare claims. To help navigate the confusion, the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) has released A Consumer’s Guide to Food Labels and Animal Welfare.
This new guide aims to help consumers who purchase meat, dairy and eggs interpret the meaning of label claims and locate products from animals who were humanely raised and handled.

Already back in 2007, Anke Weiss, a Dutch modern designer who uses recycled materials, has designed a series of beautiful lights made from recycled food and drink packaging. Weiss takes – for instance – juice cartons that have been emptied of their contents and pokes holes in them, through which light will shine after the piece is completed. Recycling to the max that is.
More on this project and Anke Weiss’ work here, here and here.
A compilation of yearly design awards, this book features the best in communication and packaging design from around the world. The iF communication design awards have been conferred since 2004 by a panel of design experts from across the world. Showcased in this volume are the most outstanding examples of communication and packaging design. This yearbook presents trendsetting achievement in advertising, media, campaigns, packaging, and websites.
Packaging products are designed to last as long as possible before recycling, where the vital process starts all over again. The importance of recyclable packaging is clearly recognised by all market sectors; either because the product itself is natural and eco-friendly or manufacturers wish to draw attention to the essence of the product. On the whole, awareness as regards the importance of recycled products is gradually increasing.
