As much as we love good designs & modern architecture, we are equally passionate about food & beverages. The fine gourmet experience brings positive change into people's lives. That is our branding agency mission. In other words, we combined our two passions and gained a lot of expertise in this creative field. No matter where you are and who you are, people always appreciate good food. The same goes with good design & packaging, even if we talk about coffee branding, cereal packaging, delicious food packaging, wine branding or organic olive oil branding.
The best branding for your startup or a fresh perspective for your food or drink company is exactly what our packaging design agency specializes in.
What is the relationship between packaging and branding? As a branding agency, we had the opportunity to collaborate with many diverse companies, including dietary supplements brands, food brands, spirits brands, luxury brands, and more. They all use this strong connection between packaging and branding. Firstly, the brand wants to gain and maintain the trust of the shoppers. As a result, the packaging of the product offers customers some expectations. Statistics show, that people believe that if the package design is good, the product inside is also good. Secondly, the manufacturing of the packaging design ensures people that is safe for them to buy the product. In addition, it can reveal the brand values like sustainability, eco-friendly values & more.
Clear brand identity will assure a successful growth & expansion of the brand in the years to follow. How does branding influence the packaging of a product? To sum up, branding influences packaging design in a lot of ways. The brand pillars set the direction of the design packaging. The quality of the package and the materials used will tell the customers more about the brand's position on the market. The colors, the typography, and the packaging illustrations will let people know the story of the brand. Once the brand establishes a position on the shelf and in the consumer's mind, it will be difficult to change. Consistency in the design system is the key. The packaging design is critical for brand recognition. In addition, in online markets and offline stores, packaging adds value & completes the branding experience.

Did you know? Once played only by Persian royalty, the game of chess remains a highly popular game in today's time.
The history of chess begins around 1500 years ago. The game originated in India, before the 6th century AD. From there, the game spread to Persia. As a result, when the Arabs conquered Persia, chess begins to be played by the Muslim world and then spreads to Southern Europe. On the other hand, in Europe, chess evolved into its current form in the 15th century.
Before 1849, the “normal chess set” didn't exist.
Over the centuries a large variety of sets of chess pieces were created, taking their inspirations from different areas & cultures.
Over the centuries a large variety of sets of chess pieces were created. The product designs take their inspirations from different areas & cultures. To clarify, the game was originally conceived as a field of battle. When it began to gain popularity in Europe the pieces evolved in royal court instead of an army. As a result, the chessmen, infantry, cavalry, elephants, and chariots, became the queen, pawn, knight, bishop, and rook.
In addition, in the 19th century, chess competitions needed standardized chess sets to help the players compete.
The "Staunton" Chess Set was born.
In conclusion, today, when we think of chess, we simply envision The Staunton chess pieces. Above all, the most unique piece of the chess set remains the knight. The knight is the only piece that is not created like an abstract representation. It's a carved horse head. Furthermore, the Staunton Knight was inspired by one of the most loved sculptures on the east pediment of the Parthenon from the scene of the chariot of Selene, the Moon Goddess. The product design of the knight conveys the struggle and effort of the horse drawing the chariot of the Moon Goddess across the sky in the silence of the night.

The oldest European chess set
The Italian chess pieces made of bone with ivory topping were found at Venafro, Italy, and probably dates about 980 AD. It is displayed in the Museo Archeologico di Napoli. The pieces were founded in a Roman tomb in 1932. The controversy is how to explain that chess pieces of Arabic shape were discovered in a tomb of the Roman age.
The "Staunton" Chess Set got a makeover
Daniel Weil, a partner of Pentagram, redesigned the classic Staunton set for the 2013 World Chess Candidates Tournament in London. "When chess started to become popular in the 19th century it became a social showcase, so everyone had a set on the show. I wanted to make an object of quality so that people could also show it off."
