THE VERTEX AWARDS aims to celebrate the best in private brand packaging design. This year’s record-setting class of entrants is evidence of not only Vertex’s influence on design but strategy. Retailers, agencies and manufacturers have moved beyond the expected and created brands and package design that genuinely differentiates. The 2020 competition included more than 400 entries from 27 countries and 49 retailers.

7-Select Organic Single Serve Milks

7-Select Organic Single Serve Milks
By Marty DiFrisco, account manager, MBD; Tracy LeMere, creative director, MBD; Austin Sniezek, project manager, MBD; Sandra Button, designer, MBD; Roger Calado, production artist, MBD

The team designed this artwork with a color palette and illustrations that have a slightly retro feel. This brings the design back to times when simple, fresh and organic were the standard, not the exception, and the sourcing of a product was clear. The illustrations help remind customers that they can expect a high level of quality, freshness and product-sourcing transparency from 7-Eleven.

Enhanced PLUS+ Water BY Jonathan Stiers, senior creative director, Sam’s Club; Carrie Mapes, account lead, Equator Design; Josh Weigelt, designer, Equator Design

Enhanced PLUS+ Water
By Jonathan Stiers, senior creative director, Sam’s Club; Carrie Mapes, account lead, Equator Design; Josh Weigelt, designer, Equator Design

“Art + Water = Something Better” became the mantra and tagline for PLUS+ Water, the new electrolyte water from Member’s Mark. This premium enhanced water features a collection of badge-worthy designs that together highlight the product benefits (added electrolytes) and establish an ownable name in the market.

Driven by the new tagline, the creative collaboration resulted in designs incorporating depictions of water in various forms. From abstracted liquids and aqua-inspired icons to a representation of the water-cycle — each bottle tells a unique story.

Hydration meets style, as the clear label substrate showcases crystal clear water and allows maximum contrast with the vibrant, abstract graphics. The large bottle structure allows the consumer to stay hydrated for hours and accessorize their look with these aspirational bottles.

Bowl & Basket Specialty Kettle Chips BY Laura Kind, vice president of brand strategy, Wakefern; Glenn Pfeifer, design manager, Wakefern; design team, Pearlfisher; production team, SGS Co.

Best of Show Winner, Category G3. Packaged Goods

Bowl & Basket Specialty Kettle Chips
By Laura Kind, vice president of brand strategy, Wakefern; Glenn Pfeifer, design manager, Wakefern; design team, Pearlfisher; production team, SGS Co.

As Wakefern embarked upon re-imagining all aspects of its private brand portfolio, the retailer sought to create a private-label food brand that moved from blending in to standing out.  The retailer’s banner brands were already well known pillars of their communities, and it wanted the new brand to reflect that sense of community and of sharing. Bowl & Basket represents food that brings people together and creates memories for the retailer’s shoppers and their families. It is a brand that celebrates the diversity and deliciousness of all of Bowl & Basket’s products, the care that went into making them, and the packaged products’ ability to bring people together.

BXP elevates the value of innovative and collaborative brand package design as a strategic business competence across the omni-channel path to purchase, to ultimately help consumer facing and retail brands deliver more relevant experiences that connect with shoppers, win at shelf, own the moment of sale and maximize brand loyalty.
