Revealing the flavours of fresh food with our products

I already knew the power of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, but I was really surprised by the number of different olive oils with very specific taste. We were able to taste every olive oil and balsamic vinegar, which are among the best ones in the world (it is always like that in this shop, not only during the workshop).

Endless combinations

The Unrefined Olive serves up recipes to rescue your salad.

It’s been a few months since those pesky resolutions were made (yoga every day, no bad fats, more sleep, nice thoughts about everyone) so sufficient time has passed for them to be broken.

La refonte de son identité visuelle

Le studio montréalais a imaginé cet intelligent système qui permet de contenir les différents formats de bouteilles.
Le concept est pratique car il laisse apparaître le contenant et permet de servir l'huile d'olive sans l'ôter de l'emballage. Il est également réutilisable et facile à stocker.

Creation of our gift box

The Small Monsters was asked to the branding, identity and packaging for the launch of an olive oil tasting bar in the Glebe district of Ottawa. The Small Monsters had a very tight timeframe (roughly ten days). They met with the owner, visited the site, created the logo, branding, print collateral, in -store signage and website as well as the artwork for the bottle and gift packaging.

From savoury to spicy

I was guided through the store by knowledgeable staff and my afternoon soon turned out to be as informative as it was flavourful.
