Lucy Rose updates Heron Valley’s titular Heron!

Lucy Rose has created an updated identity for Heron Valley; a Devon – based cider and juice producer, who also happen to be local to Lucy! The updated identity takes their majestic Heron icon and gives it a more artisanal, botanical feel.

The client and Lucy worked together to come up with a composition that could be complimented by Art Deco/ botanical borders, “this was a relatively fast process as I think the client and I had the same ideas in mind.” Opting for a vintage colour palette (a perfect match for Lucy), the final design soars with subtle sophistication but remains grounded with earthy warm tones.

“This project has been so great to work on and I enjoyed every bit of it. For a while I have wanted to work on some more packaging- based briefs and so when this job came up, I was thrilled to get another opportunity to. I think also the company being local to me and so friendly has just made the whole process even more special.”

Rachael Saunders’ delicious collaboration with Natural Grocers goes live!

We are delighted to announce that Rachael Saunders’ packaging designs, in collaboration with Whole Foods Supermarket Natural Grocershave officially hit the shelves!

MBDesign approached Rachael from the US last year to ask for her assistance in developing a new look for the ‘home brand’ products for Natural Grocers. Rachael told us how excited she was to help create a new brand based on her charming Illustrations, “I was asked to create an animal character to compliment each product, as well as reflecting the natural and organic ethos of the brand. Character designing is a dream job of mine so I enjoy every moment of working on this!”

Rachael worked alongside the in house team at MBD to develop the brand’s look. “This involved a lot of experimentation, sketches and colour tests. Once we were happy, the rest fell into place quite easily.” Her deliciously cute Illustrations cover each item in the new product range, from silly squirrels spinning honey to fluffy polar bears chowing down on frozen mango chunks!

We have even more exciting news as Rachael let us know there should be even more as the brand grows “As the Natural Grocers brand products continue to expand, I look forward to sharing more fun characters with you.
