Private Brand Chips Crunch in The Netherlands

The Netherlands based design unit Studio Kluif designed the entire packaging line for Hema’s salty snacks. HEMA is a very successful international retailer with more than 400 shops in The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. Much of its success is due to HEMA’s strong dedication to quality design. Since 2002 Studio Kluif has worked on dozens of product lines for food, personal hygiene products and kids toys as well as many others.

The packaging line is divided into 3 different categories- premium, basic and tortilla. We were inspired by the wooden crates that are used to transport vegetables & fruit for their authentic feeling and of course the classic childhood pastime of making potato stamps. To transpose these positive references to the packaging we stamped the typography ourselves thus achieving a genuine and homey atmosphere. Kluif sought crisp, fresh photography, and a composition that would give the feeling of lightness. The extruder line is composed of ‘twistbites’, ‘robo rings’ and ‘cheese sticks’ and makes use of a more illustrative graphic language which also was designed in dialogue with the photography used.
