Greenfield Belser 2017 Annual Review

Greenfield Belser has been a Finn Partners company for almost two years. This year we are adopting the new Finn brand style we created for the firm that is on the second spread of our book. That’s exciting for all of us here at Finn, but that’s hardly all that has been going on this past year. Really, it is impossible to say we love the work we did for one client more than another, but our goal is always to show you a balanced portfolio—across sectors with firms of varying sizes located all around the country.

Labeling Logic

You've probably seen this noted design hundreds of times. And you might have read about it, too. But we want to make sure that Greenfield/Belser's design of "Nutrition Facts," the Food and Drug Administration's consumer food-labeling program, doesn't escape your attention as you pour your next bowl of cereal.

"Nutrition Facts" garnered more than just a passing nod from designer Massimo Vignelli, who praised the Washington, D.C.-based marketing-design firm's label in a recent issue of the AIGA Journal of Graphic Design. "The label is a clean testimonial of civilization, a statement of social responsibility, and a masterpiece of graphic design. ... This little label is indeed the best piece of graphic information, or better yet, information architecture, that has surfaced in this country in the last 20 years," Vignelli writes.

According to Burkey Belser, president and creative director of Greenfield/Belser, the label's design reduces 4,000 pages of government regulations to a few square inches. The label must fit on every package size and reproduce on a variety of packaging materials. The final product, with its use of bold rules and titles, is a design solution that deserves continuing accolades.
