Lesieur is the leading oil brand in France. The brand was created in 1908 and represents culinary know-how and quality. Importantly enough, Lesieur is a French brand and they’d like to find a way to communicate this in their packaging.

Lesieur offers a wide range of oil and dressings as well as condiments. They are food preparation products that are added to food to add flavor to or complement a dish. Their main products are sunflower oil, mayonnaise and ketchup. Typically, people will use oil to cook and fry or to make a dressing for a salad, mayonnaise with cold meat, salads or fish, and ketchup with French fries.

Lesieur is looking for new visual codes to communicate French quality and know-how.

Creative Challenge

Wow us with your graphic design ideas for Lesieur, to express French know-how and quality.

Your graphic designs should be implemented on three products: sunflower oil, mayonnaise and ketchup. (templates are provided).

The graphic design must be strong and recognizable. The three designs must be consistent with one another and be part of an overall concept that we’d like you to describe.

Give us details about your idea. Please answer two questions:

  • How is Frenchiness communicated in your design
  • What elements express quality and know-how.

Lesieur is looking for premium visual codes that will work internationally.

These products are sold in North and Middle Africa, the Middle-East, Asia, Europe and France. Your visual codes shall then be obvious and universal.

Everyone looking at your graphic design would interpret it as meaning Frenchiness, quality and know-how. 

Lesieur is happy to make big changes on their packaging. Be bold and surprise us!


The examples are only provided to illustrate our expectations. Please do not use them in your submission or it will be rejected.

If you look at the actual design, you’ll notice a French flag under the logo. Think about other ways to communicate Frenchiness and quality. It can be through patterns, symbols, icons. Anything that will be understood by everyone.

Also you can notice that there are pictures of food on the actual packaging. This can be removed or modernized.
