Nada Packaging by Eve Warren and Thomas Squire

Nada isn’t just a brand for healthy food, but a brand that communicates through fashion, beauty, well being and body confidence. These core values reflect across the brands packaging and visual identity, through the use of minimalism contrasting with an array of bright and geometrical patterns. Minimalism has been applied to the lid of the packaging, which represent the products value of innocence, health and well being. The patterns that have been applied to the container symbolises fashion, beauty, the fusion of flavours and various pasta / noodle shapes.

The Nada brand is an adaptive and flexible identity which is built upon a bespoke typeface which instills and encompasses our brand aesthetic and brand manifesto. The typography consists of 8 individual typefaces which when used dynamically build an adaptive brand identity. The logo mark has a static variant, this acts as the primary logo mark. However the brand is built upon the logo changing across products ranges and product types.

"This sort of brand evolution meant that the identity needed stand the test of time and changes: it had to be clean, fresh and easy to use still after a couple of years when the first whiskys are matured. The solution was to make all visual elements simple but filled with (hidden) stories. Custom typeface called "Napue Sans" was designed from old Napue battle memorial monument engravings (right next to the distillery building), giving a true historical and local flair for the identity. Colors were kept to minimum using only black and white with silver and golden accents - silver for clear unaged spirits and gold for matured ones."
