Product Design

Start Creative

Hive were asked to help a local charity with the creation of product packaging for their hand crafted chopping boards, which had successfully been listed at John Lewis.

Start is an arts and well-being charity working with people across Salford. Their commercial arm; Start Creative, sells hand crafted products made by volunteers to help raise money to continue the charity’s work.

We worked with Start to help them create a packaging design which needed to adhere to John Lewis’s guidelines. The photography on pack was taken in the workshop at Start and on the back of the cardboard sleeve we featured a range of different stories from the individuals who make some of the boards, to show what a difference the purchase of this product would make. Read one of the inspiring storied below:

Start gave me hope, pride and confidence when I was at my lowest, and helps me now to control my illness instead of it controlling me and through woodwork I am able to give something back.
Paul Statham
