Dudson

Brand design.
Brand strategy.

Since 1800.

Founded in 1800, Dudson is a family business in Stoke-on-Trent, England. With nine generations of family experience in producing quality tableware that is loved by hospitality professionals all over the world.

Our brief was to challenge how they represented themselves in the form of their main sales catalogue.

Our response.

After gaining an understanding of our audience (chefs) we were quickly able to identify an approach. Chefs wanted inspiring as well as being given a choice of tools to do their work. We restructured and directed new photography for the main product guide. We then introduced a new global quarterly magazine named ’18’, editorial in style and packed with stories and inspiration.

 

Product Guide.

We moved the new photography away from showing food on the product, allowing the user to fully understand and focus on the tableware.

Outcome.

As an industry first, chefs around the world are clambering to feature in the '18' magazine.
A refreshing change.
