Elevating gift giving
Roux at Skindles is a contemporary brasserie owned by Chef Alain Roux, located on the banks of the Thames at Taplow.
Having worked with the team at The Waterside Inn for many years, we were delighted to be approached by sister restaurant, Roux at Skindles. The brasserie wanted to improve their gift voucher design and the way in which these were presented and packaged.
The objective was to create a gift voucher that would truly reflect its high value and elevate the gift-giving experience. The design needed to appeal to a discerning audience who were looking for an extra special gift for food-loving friends and family.
We produced sketches for different concepts, exploring format and construction methods. After agreeing the overall design structure, we sourced appropriate high-quality paper stocks and produced mock-ups to ensure the final piece would achieve the perfect finish and meet the client’s objectives. The finished piece consists of a gift voucher insert with space to add a personalised message. This is then contained within a presentation wallet, with photography and copy explaining the experience the recipient can look forward to.
The presentation wallet is delivered in a custom sleeve in Skindles’ signature colour of navy blue; perfectly sized to enable the wallet to easily slide out of the sleeve to reveal the message. Unboxing the voucher in this way elevates the gift-giving experience for the recipient.
The gift voucher truly befits a special occasion and was so well received that the team at The Waterside Inn subsequently asked us to create a version for their Michelin-starred restaurant.
“It has been wonderful to collaborate with Lynne. We wanted to rework the design of our gift vouchers. Lynne captured the essence and elegance Roux at Skindles in her concept, working quickly, efficiently and liaising with our printers to ensure a great final product. We are delighted with the outcome, as we knew we would be.”
