Hulsbosch leads a brand and packaging design transformation for Coles Finest

International award winning brand and design agency Hulsbosch is leading a brand transformation project for Australian supermarket chain Coles and their premium Private Label range, Coles Finest.

Coles Finest was created for food-loving Australians to savour and share quality food and drink enjoyed every day or as a treat.

Our customers enjoy fine food experiences and have an unwavering demand for quality, and we are committed to extending the Coles Finest range with more variety than ever before.”

Each product is special, made with products from selected producers and with ingredients from both Australia and overseas.

The Coles Finest master brand logo by Hulsbosch consists of three components; a ‘Experience the Difference’ stamp, the Coles logo and a ‘Finest’ Wordmark.

The brand’s premium positioning is enhanced by a ‘honeycomb’ packaging pattern, on a black background and is a distinctive brand asset for Coles Finest.
