Photoshop retouching: making those pies presentable

Nanna’s Pies needed a packaging make over.

The whole range of Nanna’s fruit pies, tarts and danishes needed the packaging redone with collaboration between stylists, photographers, designers and a range of other stakeholders. The crust was crisp, the fruit plump and the props looked real thanks to our magic.

Product packaging is a fine art and making those products look just right is paramount. We were able to work with the design and production team to provide all retouching on the product photography.

Pasta Bellissimo

Il Pom needed a brand boost.

The restaurant, while serving wonderful, fresh Italian food with a warm vibe, needed a social media promotional boost to generate more bookings and bring people to dine while Fed Square was undergoing a facelift and the Metro Tunnel project was under way.

A cute but cleverly crafted campaign utilizing the power of Pinterest to increase social media visibility and ulimately website views by 3500% over a period of a month. This translated into around 17% more bookings over a three month period. We ensured copyright was not being infringed and then created a whole strong brand identity around a grainy, timeless black and white series of mid-20th century images. This brand campaign then was able to spill into in-restaurant materials and posters to round out the exercise and give a more genuine Italian warmth to the customer experience.

Purpose:
Branding, sales, bookings

Client(s):
Il Pom Italian Restaurant, Fed Square

Skills and Tools:
