The first step was to think of a name that conveyed their origin. The products are typically Iberian (chorizo and fuet) and our client asked us to use some globally recognized Spanish identifier and to add another element to the name that alluded to the moment of consuming an impulse purchase product in the form of a casual appetizing snack. In short, pork nibbles with Designation of Origin, and that everyone gets the picture.
So we created the name of the range: Snacky Tapas. And from there we developed the product descriptors: “sticks” and “bites”. Equally appealing as understandable to any market. Now, let’s look at the design.
Happy pigs — Just like the chickens that lay quality eggs, the pigs at Can Calet are also happy. In their case, because they end up being a Snacky Tapa, a cheerful appetizer, a whimsical titbit.
The attitude of the drawn pigs is the essence of the values of the product. The style of those drawings is also carefree and primitive (like the impulse we want to spark in the consumer). The use of typography, colours and finishes pursues those same qualities, and the use of adding the product descriptor in a brightly-coloured metallic sticker confers differentiation and readability (as well as boldness). And since the stickers are snout-shaped and the packaging window is a smile… well, you get it, right? As we said: happy pigs.
