The background

Quorn is on a mission to provide healthy food, whilst reducing our impact on the planet. Quorn believes that eating meat free should be a delicious diet experience, whilst providing a healthier and more environmentally sustainable source of protein.

Continually striving to provide their consumers with inspirational recipes, Quorn are actively encouraging a new wave of followers to go meat free and embrace a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.

With the meat free industry booming and showing no signs of slowing down, this presented a perfect opportunity for Quorn to refresh their brand design and drive the revolution, “Helping the planet one bite at a time.”

The brief

When Quorn asked Aire to join them in kick-starting their new meat free movement, we were eager to jump on board.

Serving up a delicious starter, Quorn’s stage one agency handed over their beautifully crafted design to Aire in order to adapt and develop the creative main course. Cooking up a storm with new recipe photography, colour management and print-ready files, the world was our oyster to amplify Quorn’s brand across their entire core portfolio.

The result

As Quorn’s adaptive brand guardians, we understand how small changes can make a big difference.

Taking the stage one agency’s initial design intent, Aire Design then ensured that the brand assets worked successfully across every pack format, market and category pillar, whilst maintaining the brand’s integrity.

Utilising Aire Design’s in house expertise for art direction and image retouching, we produced deliciously inspirational recipe photography shots, showcasing the key ingredients for each of Quorn’s family favourite products.

Aire Pro then took the reins and deployed Rhubarb, our digital colour management technology, covering all of Quorn’s newly revitalised pillar colours, taking us to final approval and the creation of print ready files for all of Quorn’s rostered printer vendors. Rhubarb digital colour management ensures completely optimised and consistent brand, variant and image colours across all print vendors and covers all print processes for every pack format.

After successfully implementing the re-design on over 60 UK SKUs to date across all packaging touchpoints, we were able to create fully optimised ecommerce hero imagery and Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) of the packs to be utilised in various on-line grocery stores and digital media platforms as part of Quorn’s new brand campaign.

The UK portfolio is just the start of Quorn’s redesign journey, with the Nordic, Benelux, Australian and USA markets on the horizon, all eager for their participation in the rebrand.

We are extremely excited to see Quorn’s meat free masterpiece unveiled to the rest of the world. A perfect exhibition of a seamless Design-to-Print process with the benefit of having adaptive design, content creation, artwork automation, pre-press and digital colour management all working in harmony together.

“Let the revolution begin!”

 “This is the first project I have done with you all but I can honestly say despite the time pressure it’s the most efficient and effective I have been a part of in my career, when it comes to a redesign. Fantastic job by you all. Well done and thank you to you all again.”

Lucy Grogut, Head of Brand Marketing, Quorn
