The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) is the voice of more than 300 leading food, beverage and consumer product companies. Saputo Design, in conjunction with BBDO WW, was asked to create the icons that will be part of the GMA “Facts Up Front” packaging label campaign. Facts Up Front is designed to help busy consumers – especially parents – make informed decisions when they shop.

What follows are the icons we created and a link to the GMA site:


The Ritz-Carlton Hotels

by Tom Saputo

In early August, Team One Advertising was in the process of finalizing the look and feel for the new global advertising campaign for The Ritz-Carlton, “Let Us Stay With You.” James Hendry, the group creative director on the account at T1, asked Saputo to help with the normally dogged task of organizing the graphic standards for the campaign. We were also asked to design the look and create templates for regional tier II ad campaigns and direct marketing pieces. What follows are a few examples of our work.

Unbranded is an example of our most current work that we’ve deconstructed, redesigned, and re-imagined as a motion video.

Hope you enjoy.
