1 About Design Wales and this case study. Design Wales provides support for individual Welsh businesses as well as undertaking a wide range of activities to encourage and develop the use of design in Welsh industry and education. This case study is intended to be used as a resource for both education and individuals interested in finding out more about design. Developed by the designers who undertook the original project, the case study can be viewed as a whole story or individual slides can be copied to support other material in the classroom. All of the activities of Design Wales are funded by the Welsh Assembly Government. To find out more about Design Wales or other resources that are available visit

2 Ty Tanglwyst Dairy R&M Lougher & Son from cow to consumer The story of the branding of a case study

3 This presentation documents the design and development process involved in the creation of a corporate identity for a small dairy farm based in South Wales. It tracks the implementation of the new identity on the business stationery, direct marketing material, website and most crucially, product branding. Ty Tanglwyst Dairy

4 Ty Tanglwyst dairy farm has a long history dating back to the thirteenth century. They currently farm a pedigree herd of Holstein cattle, the milk from which is sold via a co-operative to major supermarkets. Ty Tanglwyst Dairy The background

5 The market It is a well documented fact that the prices farmers are able to command for milk sold in this way is being eroded. Forcing many long established farms to cease trading, or look for alternative ways of remaining economically viable. Ty Tanglwyst Dairy

6 The plan To prevent this same scenario occurring at Ty Tanglwyst and in order to maximise the potential returns from the quality product that the farm produces, Ty Tanglwyst will process a percentage of their milk on farm. In order to achieve this, the existing dairy needs to be upgraded to create an on-farm processing unit. Ty Tanglwyst Dairy

7 The brief Initially, the milk that the farm produces and processes will be delivered to the local area (approx 5 mile radius of the farm). As a new venture, the farm needs to raise awareness in order to establish and build a relationship with customers and businesses, who will recognise Ty Tanglwyst as an established supplier of quality milk products.

8 The competition Competition comes nationally from the major multiples, convenience stores and locally, from Bridgend Creamery. Whilst not so much in direct competition, other players exists in this increasingly competitive market from producers such as Rachels Dairy, Yeo Valley, Wisemans, Cornish Dairy and Bethesda Milk. Ty Tanglwyst Dairy

9 Core benefits that need to be reflected in the design solution:- Longer shelf life Reduced food miles (milk being produced, processed and sold locally) Simple traceability (produced from pedigree herd) Contributes to local economy Excellent animal welfare The benefits Ty Tanglwyst Dairy

10 Elements to be considered The design of the following require consideration:- An Identity for the main brand - Ty Tanglwyst Dairy Labels for 3 sizes of bottle - 3 varieties: skimmed/semi skimmed/whole Pre launch marketing material Company stationery items - Letterheads/invoices/comp slips/business cards Web site - supporting the product and promoting the dairy Ty Tanglwyst Dairy

11 As the main brand, Ty Tanglwyst Dairy will require a strong identity which is memorable, authentic, meaningful and differentiated. It should also be flexible to communicate the following :- High Quality Local Heritage/Character Good value Genuine Premium Elements to be considered Ty Tanglwyst Dairy

12 The corporate identity programme is divided into 3 design and development stages Stage 1 Design Concepts Ty Tanglwyst Dairy

13 Brainstorming The design process begins with a brainstorming session. This is an opportunity to explore all the various elements that could possibly have an influence on the final design. These ideas are expressed in the form of simple words, pictures and diagrams. Ty Tanglwyst Dairy Stage 1 Design Concepts

14 Brainstorming The design process begins with a brainstorming session. This is an opportunity to explore all the various elements that could possibly have an influence on the final design. These ideas are expressed in the form of simple words, pictures and diagrams. The circled words/phrases indicate important influences on the final identity. Ty Tanglwyst Dairy Stage 1 Design Concepts

15 Concept sketches. Concept development then takes place with ideas being conveyed in the form of loose sketches for discussion and refinement within the design studio. Ty Tanglwyst Dairy Stage 1 Design Concepts

16 Concept sketches. These sketch concepts are never intended to be seen by the client, but are a form of shorthand and are created by designers for other designers to communicate thoughts and ideas. The circled sketches/doodles indicate ideas with potential for development. Ty Tanglwyst Dairy Stage 1 Design Concepts

19 Concept refinement and presentation. The strongest ideas are taken and developed further with a view to them being presented to the client. They are transferred to the computer at this point. At this stage, consideration will be given to how well each concept might translate on to stationery items, although the design of these items will form a separate stage later in the process.

62 Invariably, a client will identify elements from each concept which they would like incorporated into the final design. In Stage 2 Design Development, the designer will seek to combine these specific elements into one unified design. Greater consideration will be given to other elements, such as stationery items and labels design. Design Development

87 Stage 1 website design

88 Website Another key part of the marketing strategy for the dairy was to launch their own website. Again, it is critical that the integrity of the corporate identity as established with the stationery and label design, is maintained across all media. Marketing material Ty Tanglwyst Dairy

89 The website provides an opportunity for the farm/dairy to communicate directly with their own consumers. It enables them to convey in more detail the advantages of buying products from a local supplier and to convey in greater detail, the way the product is produced. The following three slides show examples of the website format. Website Ty Tanglwyst Dairy
