Containr Affairs is asked to help them with reshaping their brand architecture and refine their identity, store concept and supportive branding
Listen to your Inner Voice
Bavaria, one of the oldest privately held and run companies in the Netherlands, challenged us to redefine their on-trade strategy for the beautiful Swinckels’ brand. In accordance to the wonderful history and brand DNA we focussed on a strong storytelling and drinking rituals fitting different occasions.
Stirlings is the new leading oil manufacturer for the automotive industry. We translated their devotion for racing and the associated lifestyle into two core principles; “classic quality, modern performance”.
With this in mind, we gave the company its name, a bold visual identity a solid packaging design and fresh website.
Home of the original stroopwafel
When the oldest Dutch syrup waffle bakery, sole purveyor to the Royal Household, approached us to create a new premium brand, we where thrilled to bring it back to the golden age of the ‘stroopwafel’.
In Goudstroop we found the right name. For the brand’s identity, the rich and sophisticated Art Deco movement heavily inspired us. We are currently designing the first of more Goudstroop stores.
Bobby’s Dry Gin
Bobby’s is our first achievement as collaborative brand architects. We are responsible for brand strategy, branding, packaging and spatial design. The gin and jenever is named after Jacobus Alfons, known to his friends and family as Bobby. It was his unique Indonesian genever recipe that inspired grandson Sebastiaan to create a balanced gin, blending the spirit of Schiedam, with the spice of Indonesia. The classic ‘kruik’ bottle was reshaped for the 21st century made of smoked glass and screen printed Ikat pattern.

Redefining the world of yogurt
The world’s leading dairy company challenged Containr Affairs to redefine its yogurt activities in the out-of-home-channel. Their beautiful cooperative tradition of dairy and fruit farmers became our starting point.

If 3/4 of your mixer is soda,
make sure you use the best
In 2015, this small powerhouse invited us to reshape the brands on-trade & off-trade strategy for the Dutch market. Second assignment was to create a travelling bar concept that made Fever-Tree more tangible in the Netherlands. King Charles II tickled all senses in a wilderness of all that makes the brand unique.
