A haven of calm to enjoy your cuppa
The Company You Keep cuts through the noise with Love Tea's packaging
Love Tea has been crafting organic and therapeutic tea blends for over a decade. Last year they got the team at The Company You Keep (TCYK) on board to overhaul their packaging and help their brand thrive.
Through research, TCYK noticed supermarket shelves were stacked with a single relentlessly repetitive art direction consisting largely of; big bright colours and floral illustrations that vied, no begged for attention. The studio took this opportunity to take a step back and reflect on the quiet stillness and calm that a cup of tea affords and let this philosophy dictate. The result is an earthy colour palette paired with botanist-style ingredient assets that communicate the tea's organic nature, quality of ingredients and works wonderfully setting it apart on the shelves.
Throughout our research we saw shelf after shelf of colourful, loud packaging with nifty flavour names. In contrast, we wanted to convey that drinking tea is about finding a moment of peace. An exhale.
