The decision wasn’t purely cosmetic, according to Mrs Davis. “She was looking a bit dated, but also, the brand was struggling to keep up-to-date in terms of technology. The illustration wasn’t equipped to be used on social media and online,” she said. Last year, Empire Bespoke Foods, which owns Mrs Elswood, took the decision to give its homely ambassador a new look. As the world becomes more digital, brands now need to adapt to things like web and social media so this meant creating a logo that can be scaled up or down without losing quality, which the previous illustration didn’t allow.” The vibrant red lid was introduced to give the jars real shelf stand-out and to pay homage to the red ribbon [that the brand name sits on] that has become synonymous with the Mrs Elswood logo.” The designers didn’t want Mrs Elswood to lose any of her charm. Mrs Davis explained: “The most important thing was Mrs Elswood herself keeping her warmth, and her motherly qualities whilst bringing her up to date with a slightly more youthful face and hairstyle.”

As for the jar lid going from green to red, Mrs Davis said: “That works with the gherkins and really makes them pop. The plan was to keep her recognisable. Empire Bespoke Foods senior brand manager Mat Moyes told the JC: “People empathised with this character — Mrs Elswood. Our challenge was to retain this lovely position of being close to communities and yet modernising it.” We felt it was important to retain the brand’s heritage whilst also creating a new naming and colour convention, so that each product would be much easier to identify on shelf. She was a real person for a while, a model from an agency, but was replaced by the smiling, illustrated lady some years later.”Food marketing experts Brilliant Agency devised the latest incarnation. Its creative director, Laurra Davis, told the JC: “She has been through several iterations.

The newly digitised Mrs Elswood has bright red lowlights giving her a bit of a glow and helping her stand out prominently on the dark green wallpaper on the jar.
