Consumer Branding

Gmund

Gmund is a manufacturer of high-quality fine papers and paper products based in Bavaria, Germany.

My role: As Senior Design Director at Landor Associates, I led the design team in the conception and design development of the promotional packaging to communicate the idea of food-safe paper. The chocolates were used as give-aways at trade fairs and exhibitions.

Erasco

Erasco is a well-known German soup brand that is part of GB Foods.

My role: As Senior Design Director at Landor Associates, I led the design team in developing a design strategy to improve brand recognition and stand out on shelf; developing a new pack architecture (creating a brand world (story) at the bottom of the label design, building a continuous visual story around the entire can); logo optimisation; portfolio strategy; implementation and adaptation.

Adelholzener

Adelholzener is a well-known German mineral water brand that is 100% owned by the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. All profits go towards their social and community work.

My role: As Senior Design Director at Landor Associates, I led the design team in developing a design strategy; developing a new bottle shape and label design for the core product range – mineral water. Our brief was to strengthen the brand while increasing differentiation between the product offerings (classic, medium, still). Based on the success of this project, we developed further labels for other product ranges within the portfolio, e.g. organic spritzer and healing water.

Procter & Gamble

My role: As Senior Design Director at Landor Associates, I led the design team in concept, design and strategy development: from global redesigns to regional adaptations and policy development.

Corporate Branding

NEFF

NEFF is a manufacturer of mid to high-end kitchen appliances and is a wholly owned subsidiary of BSH Hausgeräte GmbH.

Subsequently, I developed multiple guidelines and templates, including the Corporate Design guidelines, merchandising, accessory packaging, naming, co-branding, brand language guides. I support with design & layout, on an ongoing basis, for brochures, flyers, merchandising and promotional materials, as well as supporting the NEFF marketing team as a brand consultant, ensuring that the brand is applied consistently on a global scale.
