Cornwall’s oldest and most loved biscuit brand has teamed up with the talented design team at Whistlefish, Cornwall on a revamp of their Cornish biscuit gifting range and with cookie creator extraordinaire Teoni to create a brand new range of cookies – ‘Furniss Cookies By Teoni’.
Chris Pauling, Managing Director at Furniss, said “Our Cornish gifting range is always extremely popular with locals and visitors alike; we’ve heard it said by many that they can’t leave Cornwall without a box of Furniss biscuits tucked under their arm”. Pauling went on to say, “Whilst we loved the images on our former packaging, we considered it was time for a refresh and so we teamed up with the very talented design team at Whistlefish, Cornwall to refresh the iconic Cornish scenes on our packaging. We took the decision to remain with the theme of iconic Cornish locations as that’s synonymous with Furniss, and so our new designs now include wonderful illustrations of St Michaels Mount, The Minack Theatre, Lands End, Godrevy, Wheal Coates, Padstow, Port Isaac, Charlestown and St Ives. We simply love the new designs; the illustrations are just so fresh, are beautifully detailed and really depict the true essence of wonderful Cornwall”.
Pauling added, “We have also taken this opportunity to update the range with some new exciting flavours and recipes. We wanted to ensure we give the consumer the best possible biscuit eating experience, so we have tweaked our shortbread recipes to add 30% more butter and have added some delicious new flavours.” He said “When developing the recipes we just couldn’t stop eating the samples; we just know our consumers will love them too”.
According to Pauling, it was an easy decision to work with the talented team at Whistlefish on the new packaging, as their beautiful illustrations are just the perfect fit with Furniss and its long Cornish heritage.
A spokesperson for Whistlefish added “Following on from our successful collaboration on some delicious Cornish Fairings in 2020, we were thrilled to have the chance to work with Furniss again on the packaging for this rebrand. With the choice of such classic Cornish locations, the brief was such an enjoyable one for our designers to work on and it’s always a pleasure to be able to illustrate places that are so naturally beautiful. Working with a brand with such a strong Cornish heritage as Furniss was a natural fit for us and we can’t wait to see the finished article out on the shelves and in customers bags”.
