I’m not Turkish, I’m Greek

First came Turkisk Yoghurt. Now it’s Grekisk Yoghurt’s turn. Alternative: As the rollout of the Arla Köket line of dairy products continues, the second of about 80 packages featuring newly designed graphics by Neumeister is now available in Swedish grocery stores. Grekisk Yoghurt is easily identified featuring an illustration of an iconic Greek seaside village. The image of blue water and white-washed buildings clinging to the seashore set the stage for the flavor inside the container. And the Arla Köket logo at the top of the label provides an assurance of great taste and high quality for consumers.

The Max to Neumeister this summer

After migrating south from the heart of Sweden in Dalarna to Malmö, Sweden’s largest city in Skåne, 27-year-old Maximilian Romlin has spent the past six years coding websites. Which should provide maximum benefits for Neumeister, because we’re fortunate to have him working on our website over the summer. Max, a self-described problem solver, will be organizing the content and navigation of our online presence, while most Swedes will be relaxing offline while they’re on holiday.

Tying Malaco to the world’s favorite soda

Now, Malaco is tying into the popularity of both purchases by introducing Cola flavored Snören (Cords). Cola Snören will appear in stores at the beginning of summer. Neumeister has created a package design that makes it easy to spot the new flavor, while keeping elements of Malaco’s familiar brand image in place.

Now, people who love the taste of rhubarb just have to look for the latest variety of Plopp chocolate bars from Cloetta to satisfy their craving. That’s because the package design created by Neumeister takes its cues directly from the unmistakeable green and pink stalk of the rhubarb plant itself. And the surprising combination of the tangy-flavored filling covered in chocolate is sure to keep rhubarb lovers coming back for more.

Getting schooled in New York City

At Neumeister, we’re always looking to learn about the latest design trends. And what better place to do so than in the city that never sleeps – New York City. So our entire staff took flight on “Kristi Himmelfärdshelgen”, the Swedish holiday, to take part in the design conference “99U”. In addition to the two-day conference, we visited art exhibitions, breweries, fast food restaurants, museums, stores, stores, and even more stores. We came back inspired, tired, and pretty much shopped out.

For more than 50 years, the company’s mantra for success has remained the same. “With the best ingredients, we will serve the tastiest hamburgers.” Neumeister has now been commissioned to help the hamburger chain maintain its status. New packaging is being developed to clearly communicate the high quality standards the company has set for itself, and the great taste customers have come to experience from Max.

A strong brew in honor of long voyages

Cheers to Mariestads’ Brewmaster Richard Bengtsson for the fourth in a series of special brews honoring Sweden’s history. This time, it’s a barley wine aptly named “Ostindien Strong Ale”. Distinguished by complex malt flavors and hints of dried fruit, with 10% alcohol content, the brew honors those made to endure long voyages made by the fabled vessel Götheborg and other trading ships during the early 1700s. Like previous Mariestads special editions, Neumeister developed a comprehensive design program including the name and details such as hand-labeled and numbered wooden boxes, and bottlenecks dipped in wax

Loka-Likes-NEWS

Too much of a good thing? Never.

The launch of the 2016 edition of Loka Likes it just too much. Literally! With flavors that include Raspberry Frozen Yogurt, Mango Pannacotta, and the classic Swedish treat, “Chokladboll”, Neumeister created the concept of “Too Much”. The flavors are visualized with sparkling illustrations, topped both pearls and golden plates. Isn’t it also too much that Loka Likes doesn’t even contain sugar or artificial sweeteners? Yes, it is. And we like it.

It’s time to harvest the Mandarina!

The latest rotating tap beer from Brutal Brewing is now available, filled with Mandarina hops that are marked a fruity aroma. Mandarina is dry-hopped, and freshly roasted pilsner malts help produce a pleasant bitterness and add depth to the brew. With a design created by Neumeister featuring fruity and fresh colors, it’s easy to pick out Mandarina at a bar near you. Just like all Brutal Brewing rotating tap beers, it’s only available for a limited time and in a limited amount. After all, a brew like this doesn’t grow on trees.

Now, Neumeister has been commissioned to upgrade the brand identity for Mesh. The project includes a new logo, typeface and colors that that reflect the brand’s original approach to creating a unique, successful business.

History in the re-making

Back in the day in the UK, it was legal for factory workers to quench their thirsts by drinking low alcohol brews during sessions while they were on the clock. To honor this bygone era, Session Pale Ale from Brutal Brewing has now been launched. It’s the latest in the series of limited edition beers that have been introduced over the past year, so hurry up and step back in time. The shiny copper clock will lead your way to this tasty history lesson.

An all natural canned presentation

It’s still carbonated. It still contains all natural ingredients without preservatives or artificial colors. The difference with Loka Crush from Spendrups now is that the satisfying, thirst-quenching beverage is about to be sold in cans, too. Three flavors, Raspberry, Pear and Orange, are soon available in “fridgepacks” containing 10 cans each. Neumeister worked with Rexam to transfer the design developed for PET bottles onto the new aluminum cans. Look for the result on store shelves – or order in casual restaurants.

N’1CE and clear branding

It’s been clear since they were introduced, N1CE frozen cocktails developed by award-winning bartender Jimmy Dymott and superstar producer Sebastian Ingrosso have been a hit. However, a graphic design program was needed that is as attractive to N1CE consumers as the drinks are themselves. Neumeister has done just that. The new packaging provides better differentiation between the various flavors of frozen cocktails, with a design inspired by the colors of night club dance floors – where N1CE has a loyal following.
