Known for its long-lasting tradition in milling, Titan activates on Romanian market through various types of
bakery products most of which are being merchandised under the corporate brand identity.

field and, as a result, bread remains untouched during the whole production and packaging process.

consumer brand - visually endorsed by the corporate brand – to carry five varieties of toast bread. Thus,
BrandTailors was selected as a brand consultancy partner.

The package design concept is propelled through an original graphic execution of the idea of dish decoration,
usually used by mothers in order to turn every meal into a pleasant and joyful experience. Thus, every type of
toast is represented by a character made up from foodstuff generally associated with every type of bread - cold
meats for classic toast, vegetables for graham and so on. The tablecloth, an element used to facilitate the
graphic system creation, completes brand’s visual territory.
