“Stillier is a conceptual french gin, designed to appeal to female premium spirit buyers. The bottle design was influenced by the the delicate and feminine qualities of french lace. This embellishment is often used to adorn a woman making her feel romantic, provocative yet delicate. These are the qualities of this tripple distilled gin which is designed to appeal to women who often think gin is a hard, masculine drink. The curvaceous form of the bottle teamed with the intricate artwork proves that gin drinkers aren’t always who you think they are.”

“All About Tea is an expert wholesale tea distributor based in Portsmouth, UK. They source their tea from remote regions, to bring the best of the worlds flavours to a global audience. Their offer extends from classic varieties to specialist blends. Their ambition was to hone their wholesale offer while satisfying the need to reach new audiences. They wanted to keep the warehouse feel but also establish a loyal consumer group who felt they were getting premium quality at wholesale prices.
Moving Brands were tasked with creating a new identity that would stand out in a “sea of sameness.” The identity needed to work effectively across their existing wholesale market, and enable them to grow into retail channels. It was also vital to communicate the founder’s passion for the art and intricacies of tea.
Our assessment of All About Tea brought to light the company’s inherently metronomic delivery, the quality and rigour of their service and products, and their unparalleled passion for tea. We wanted to bring this story and way of operating to the forefront with their new identity.”

He had a bag with a slit in the front and wanted a way to display a ton of information about growers, farms, flavors, and more.

“Merum means ‘pure and unadulterated’ in latin. Merum Estate is set in Pemberton, Western Australia, a pristine location where 85% of the region remains under native vegetation. For this mid-level range of wines, Manifesto Design created a fantasy ‘floating world’ consisting of a collection of plants and animals endemic to the area. The working ecosystem revolves around a towering Karri tree, a native species for which Pemberton is renowned. The botanical styled illustration works both as a whole, and also when separated into four segments, a quarter appearing on each label. The labels are then embellished with silver foiling and a raised UV varnish for tactility.”

“The A-1 Scrabble designer edition. The purpose of this project was to revive an old, but loved game: Scrabble. The idea was to excite people about typography by giving them the ability to choose what font their scrabble set would come in. The set would come in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.”
