We were asked to pick an already existing brand within the food market and then think about a different product line with 3 different varieties.
Instead of choosing only one product of a certain brand, I asked if I could use two different products. After my request being approved, I chose to explore the delightful ‘tea time’ tradition. Besides redoing the packaging of the Swedish brand Annas, I join the Soder tea to the package, creating a special/premium edition.
The concept goes around the tea time and the pleasure of reading a book in a beautiful library. The packaging works as a book case and can be placed in a shelf with other books and stay ‘undercovered’. Each package contains 5 individual bags of Soder tea and four sets of 5 cookies. The flavors chosen for the cookies were selected after some study about typical/common Swedish fruits.
It has a sateen stripe so the little drawer can be pulled and each of the stripes goes along with the fruit chosen for each package. I chose dill, cloudberries and lingonberries for the cookies and and a blend of tea very popular in Sweden – the Soder tea.
