La Motte approached Just Design, a brand design agency headquartered in Stellenbosch, to assist with the packaging for this exciting new venture. Inspired by their Gallic heritage, La Motte requested that the packaging be French inspired, sophisticated, bold and ideally feature the colour scheme of fynbos. At the same time, it was imperative that that the packaging also had a natural look and feel while identifying with the botanical theme.
The creatives at Just Design focused on developing distinctive packaging which was fresh, contemporary, modern and stylish. The unique French "La Motte" flair was also implemented in the shape of the labels. To create packaging for the Arômes De La Motte
range distinguishing it from the traditional range, Just Design incorporated the colours of the Protea flower, infusing a natural element of fynbos, which indirectly promote the La Motte principles of biodiversity.
The Arômes De La Motte
range was launched in November 2011 and is available from La Motte's popular Farm Shop. Following on the success of the product range, Just Design was given the opportunity to develop dedicated gift packaging. The agency is currently in the process of designing a sophisticated gift bag with matching paper to complement the product range.
