We can create or reinvigorate your brand

Smith’s Snackfoods Australia commissioned thINK to rebrand their iconic New Zealand Grain Waves brand for launch in Australia; then re-launch in New Zealand.

As Grain Waves is a “better for you” chip, a new and different look from the ‘category norm’ of chip branding was needed.

The key challenge was to make the Grain Waves brand look like an everyday chip; be visually appealing and communicate “better for you” snacking with strong ingredient and taste cues.

This was a multi-dimensional design challenge, to position the Grain Waves brand between Smith’s gourmet Red Rock Deli range and Smith’s traditional chip ranges, to avoid cannibalising sales within their chip portfolio.

Our design solution also required flexibility for additional and unknown flavours in to the future.

Deliverables: Branding, pack designs, branding guidelines, website, and sales collateral.

The Grain Waves range. Working with a very talented food photographer and stylist makes a big difference.
A graphic standards kit helps brand managers keep brand teams and partner companies all on the same 'brand' page.
The website design and interaction expanded on the branding theme.
