SMITH'S BRAND REFRESH 2016

Smith’s has launched a fresh new look for our packaging across both Smith’s Crinkle and Smith’s Thinly Cut chips ranges, in all pack formats, along with a modernisation of the Smith’s logo itself. Since first produced in Australia back in 1931, the Smith’s logo has had a number of gradual changes, to ensure the brand has evolved with the times.  The new logo has a more dynamic and contemporary feel, with the main change being the red Smith's banner breaking out of diamond and wrapping around it to create a more 3D effect.
