Private Brand “Love Saves The Day”

Private Brand has many representations and definitions but I particularly love it as a tactic for restaurants and cafes to carry their brand beyond their kitchens to food lovers homes. These packages were designed by James McCarthy for the independent cafe Love Saves The Day in Manchester, England. The brief was to create a brand design that could be used on a variety of bags, bottles and jars. It had to look appealing to young creative types and older customers, the retro feel accomplishes that and is fashionable and of the moment.
