2nd Place in the Advertising Category for Cheshire Farm Ice Cream's rebrand

Where from:

Entyce Creative

The brief, set by Entyce Creative, was to rebrand Cheshire Farm Ice Cream. In partnership with my friend Simon Davies we focused on rebranding the logo, advertising and in particular, the packaging. The original branding was deemed to be rather dated, but the main issue was found to be with the packaging which was all presented in the same style and colours, with no distinction between the flavours.

To tackle this we decided to modernise the branding and represent each flavour through it's own individual pattern. The patterns were designed with consideration of the ingredients and colouring of each flavour of ice cream.

We decided to keep the advertising simple as we wanted to focus on representing the wide range of flavours that Cheshire Farm Ice Cream famously has to offer.

Our entry won 2nd place in the Advertising category of the competition.
