Springing into summer

This edition of our newsletter features some especially beautiful products which have been hugely enjoyable to help create. Part of why we love the work here at Grain, a top small business branding agency, is the wide range of companies we advise. We get a thrill out of creating gorgeous beauty products and sophisticated jewellery packaging, as much as grappling with strategic planning and branding for technology firms, independent schools, architects and property developers. More about some of those projects another time. For now, enjoy perusing a couple of recent delights below.

Button & Wilde is a new indulgent bath and body care gift brand that gives customers the freedom to add photos and personalised messages to the labels. Grain was privileged to be involved from the start: coming up with the brand strategy and name, and then designing the identity, labels and packaging. Please do visit the website as these make excellent presents: think bridesmaids’ gifts, birthdays, Father’s Day or a new baby!

Canadian jewellers Spence Diamonds has created beautiful diamond jewellery since 1978 and is now expanding to new markets. Grain was asked to design a new, more luxurious packaging concept in preparation for Spence’s entry into the US market. We developed the design and liaised with the manufacturer in China to deliver to the very tight timeline so everything is ready for the shop openings. The result is a beautiful mixture of classic luxury and modern details – just like Spence’s unique retail concept.

Hope you enjoyed this short and sweet update, and let’s hope that the summer sunshine arrives soon!
