Ohio-based Blackwood Pet Food’s handcrafted, all-natural recipes have been loved by trainers of champion sport and show dogs for years.


When the company decided to extend their retail footprint, they knew new packaging was key to wooing retailers. Minneapolis design consultancy Ideas that Kick (formerly known as HartungKemp) created new bags that placed key nutritional values for each recipe front and just a bit off-center. So pet-loving families can feel great, at first glance, about what they’re feeding Fido. Kick’s bags also make it easy for store clerks to recommend Blackwood foods. Kick’s strategic thinking and smart design transformed this challenger brand into what the agency calls a Shelf Kicker™ in the premium pet food category.


all visual branding work concerning the Blackwood Pet Foods line was completed by Boston-based brand strategists Catapult Thinking LLC, prior to implementation by "Ideas that Kick".
