The project aims to showcase Birch & Waite’s professional sauces, to chefs in medium to large-sized kitchen/restaurants. The Birch & Waite salesman would literally use the campaign to explain how the sauces are produced, to professional chefs, who have very little time by the way, so the campaign had to be very visual and explanatory.

The campaign visually explains passion. Birch & Waite understands that professional chefs want to know what is in the sauce and why it's going to save them time and not ruin their reputation. The sauces themselves are so delicious and clean, a chef can add his own signature style to it with his own ingredients. Hence the line ‘Our Fresh Ingredients, Your Passion’. From briefing to the actual photoshoot, it took probably 2 months to finish it.

It was a combination of factors. My brother is a professional chef so I called him and we chatted around the brief, but it was a brainstorm with my brilliant senior Art Director Dave Clough where we cracked the idea, we were very aware it was a campaign ‘thought’ that had been done before ie. Making your product out of food, so we wanted to be as different as we possibly could be.

The entire thing was shot in camera as you can see from Dave in the film art directing the shoot. The only tools we used were for clean up and resizing so the usual suspects are Photoshop, Illustrator and of course Indesign to go to Print.

  1. Really cool idea! I really like the way you did that, no 3D use ! Just a lot of patience and meticulousness. Great job, Amazing concept and executions!!

  2. I actually thought the logo was Photoshopped in afterwards until I saw your video. How did you position your camera so that it gets a perfectly straight shot of the logo?

    Great design btw!
