The New York office of Base Design this strikingly elegant packaging for Roy Shvartzapel’s retail launch of his luxury baked goods. The design features Lucas Sharps’s Ogg typeset beautifully, centered on a stark white box.
For 15 years, Roy Shvartzapel has traveled the globe, working for and learning from the most important gastronomic figures of our time, including Pierre Hermé, Ferran Adria, and Thomas Keller. After conceiving and launching his own standout bakery, Common Bond in Houston, Roy has now embarked on his next endeavor, From Roy, a luxury bakery on a quest to deliver the finest products in the world.
Fast Co. writes: ‘Base’s concept is minimalist, and emphasizes the product and storytelling behind the brand. Min Lew, Partner and Creative Director of Base Design New York, says, “The bakery is really about Roy and his philosophy, rigor, and passion. We wanted to see how we could portray and capture his dedication.” The website and packaging are rendered in crisp black and white. Each box features a ‘letter’ to customers about what the brand embodies—tradition, invention, and quality ingredients—and is emblazoned with From Roy’s logo, a wordmark in a custom font that riffs on a signature.’
