Roberts & Co has designed packaging and a catalogue for Italian food chain Carluccio’s Christmas range. The project encompasses over 40 products and will roll out across the company’s 14 cafÃ©s in the greater London area from this week. The work is inspired by a ‘celebratory, warm, romantic, Italian’ theme and a ‘real attention to detail’, says Roberts & Co creative director Julian Roberts. Each product features individual packaging (coffee and chocolate panettone box pictured), rather than the cross-range style that has been employed in previous years, he adds. It is the second year that the consultancy has worked with Carluccio’s.
