Local Legends

Integrated Campaign for Local Chip Company

When creating the identity and packaging for Local Legends Food Company, a milk* initiative, I wanted to do more than just sell chips. It was imperative for the brand to tell a story, creating a world for Local Legends to expand and perhaps one day become a legend in its own right. Local areas in the U.S. inspired the chip flavors. For each of these flavors I illustrated characters and wrote stories based on the folklore of the region. Local legends will be on the shelves of whole foods by the end of July 2015!

Local legends brought home 4 awards at the 2015 CADC awards show. Here are the words from the Judge, Mark Hess, about the Local Legends Illustration Judges Award:

“The wholly unexpected whimsey and simple depiction of lighthearted subjects relating to the flavors not always associated with potato chips is refreshing and attractive; which, added to the retro-based complementary typography/graphic treatment creates a strong brand identity hard to ignore. The illos capture a wood-cut, hand painted mentality which suggests a simpler bygone time perfect for, and rarely used, in this product segment. They are simple, color restrained, decorative, tell-a-story, and are so spontaneous and hand-made looking that they feel like old friends.”
