The Drum Recommends: Commended - Design Happy Redesign Brand and Packaging for Jekl

Design Happy Redesign Brand and Packaging Design for Jekl

The Drum Recommends: Commended is highlighting Design Happy agency who redesigned the brand and packaging for Jekl steak snacks.

In this series, we explore the finest work created by The Drum Recommended agencies. We will highlight top case studies to guide and inspire you in your journey to select a new agency relationship.

Last year the Recommended Agency Register (RAR) was rebranded as The Drum Recommends to bring it in line with owner The Drum. It remains committed to partnering brands with the correct agency using data and unique industry expertise.


In an environment of dusty landscapes, rustic type and cowboy themed packaging, Jekl met with Design Happy with a view to shake up the category, not just with its superior tasting product but to stand apart from the crowd of normality.


Rather than focusing on the product’s heritage we decided to draw inspiration from the unique story of each of the flavours. We created a modern picture postcard themed packaging from each of the variants moving away from muted, earthy tones to a more vibrant colour palette to appeal to broader demographic.
