Sainsburys own label
January 24, 2012
I came across these designs the other day whilst search through blogs.
In 1962, when Peter Dixon joined the Sainsbury’s Design Studio, a remarkable revolution in packaging design began. His mission was to develop some new designs for its Own Label products.
Although this was way before my time i cant help but admire the designs. I imagine nothing like this had ever been done before and apparently these designs contributed towards the success of Sainsburys and their Own Label brand.
The blog post i came across is located here http://www.trunkrecords.com/turntable/SainsburyOwnLabel.shtml
And a book can be bought here http://fuel-design.com/publishing/own-label/, displaying the designs and history behind it all
