Cookie appeal

In order to broaden its market from the East Coast to the entire U.S., Richmond, VA-based Kathleen’s Bake Shop enlisted the help of Beatley Gravitt Communications (Richmond, VA).
FILED IN:  Package design  > Structural

The packaging for the baked goods which was 15 years old consisted simply of a paper bag before Beatley Gravitt implemented the redesign. In addition to a new look the cookies and brownies required a more “robust” container because of the wider distribution. Kathleen’s Bake Shop ultimately chose the milk carton-type container featuring a photo of the product and a gingham pattern with color coding to indicate the style of cookie. The new packages which protect the cookies for four months are printed in six colors on a sheet-fed offset press. “The graphics are meant to make it seem like your mother made [the cookies]” Robert Young Beatley Gravitt creative director says.
