Hill Top Cheese

New to market local cheese producer, Hill Top Cheese approached Picture Smiths to create a brand for the business, which showcases the speciality and provenance of the product.

The owner is a self-confessed lover of cheese who has turned her passion into a business producing her own artisan variety in the heart of Colne Valley.

Since artisan cheese is wrapped in wax paper, we turned our thoughts more traditional design methods. Lino print is an old fine art print technique (Picasso was a fan!), done by cutting and shaping a type of rubber, to make a stamp. In ode to this and in tribute of folk traditions in the Colne Valley, we went for a Lino print style design, fitting for Hill Top Cheese.

The brand identity includes a wonderful collection of illustrative suggestions including packaging, point of sale and merchandise.

The cheese is delicious – imagine Wensleydale meets Caerphilly... Find it on farm shop shelves near you very soon.
