Goumenisses, Spoon Sweets | 2009
PHOTOGRAPHY Georgios Soumelidis
On Mount Paiko in Northern Greece, “Goumenisses” lovingly create homemade traditional products with select, local raw materials. In 2009 they requested the redesign of the packaging for their spoon sweets.
“I’m the chestnut one”, “I’m the lemon one”! The product speaks to us and tells us its name. The phrase is printed on a sticker in bright colours, symbolising freshness, which on a black canvas shows off the select product. The colourways resemble the cottage industry’s range of traditional jams and enhance its new image.
