Williams-Sonoma Entertains With Private Brand

William Sonoma OlivesFor their new entertaining private brand line, Williams-Sonoma created a food collection inspired by the small-production specialty food products of the Napa Valley wine region. As part of this collection, the olives collection package was designed by Pavement and inspired by the typography found in classic Italian food products and restaurant signage, but with a modern stylistic facelift. Custom typography and minimal illustration help give the package a rich and sophisticated presentation.
