Caffè Concerto is a renowned Italian restaurant with a range of locations across London and Birmingham, as well as Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Following its opening in 1996, Caffè Concerto has become known for its fine food and drink including afternoon teas, speciality celebration cakes and intricately hand-made pâtisseries, which adorn the restaurants’ window displays. This all sits against the backdrop of its luxuriously decorated venues, many of which regularly hold live music.
Following a successful refinement of the brand’s visual identity, Caffè Concerto needed re-designed packaging for its takeaway coffee. This had to fully encapsulate the sense of luxury carried across the brand. Gold foil block printing was incorporated into the design which required fine detail while not sacrificing legibility. The project’s lead time needed to be remain at 3-4 weeks and needed to control costs to remain affordable.
From the beginning of the project, Westpak were on hand to provide advice and guidance on the packaging design, offering various approaches to achieve best possible print outcome. We also advised Caffè Concerto on the ideal paper to be specified for the packaging, essential for achieving the desired look and feel for the end product. Through a process of detailed consideration and refinement, we oversaw two prototyping stages before achieving the desired result. We were proud to deliver the product on-time and on-budget for Caffè Concerto, helping their new brand-identify shine through, both visually as well as from a tactile perspective for the customer.
Through Westpak’s consultative approach and dedicated stages of prototyping and refinement, we were able to offer a finalised product that fully met the client’s criteria. As well as being available for Caffè Concerto on-budget and within the specified time frame, the coffee cup design also seamlessly sat alongside various other packaging items in their range, helping to further reinforce a cohesive feel across the brand. The coffee cup design is also regularly featured across their social media pages and is popular with customers as well as also recently being seen carried by the prime minister!
“Overseeing the production of Caffè Concerto’s coffee cup design carries a great deal of responsibility. The takeaway coffee cup is one of the most immediate and lasting points of brand reference for the customer, so it’s vital that the design satisfied every consideration. It’s also fantastic seeing photos of the product in use on social media and the popularity with its customers.”
