Rooted in the same spirit of discovery as celebrated explorers, Lewis & Clark – and named for the year they first discovered Washington’s Columbia Valley – 1805 is an outstanding new wine from Washington’s Columbia Valley.
Drawing on the region’s rich heritage, the label design presents this significant date in a simple, elegant, yet contemporary manner, so as to connect with today’s consumers. The overlapping silver foil numerals are distinctively staged on a rich matte black background punctuated by the hand-drawn L&C monogram, honoring the two noteworthy explorers. It is also featured proudly on the capsules.
Recently launched at retail, the design is consistently presented across four varietals, including both red and white wines, so as to help build recognition for this newly innovated brand.

“Visual identity and packaging to Di Napoli – a restaurant and take away as well. The identity is inspired by the biggest passion in Napoli. Soccer. But also the Italian traditions and Italian’s sense of fashion and style. The light blue logo is a shape between a napkin and the letter ‘N’.”

The inspiration for the A24+ Silence Water came from the common practice of interrupting. Often people interrupt one another, without letting whoever is speaking finish his sentence. The name ‘Silence Water’ is actually part of a Greek saying, originated in a myth. The question “did you drink the Silence Water?” is addressed nowadays to someone who is not responsive or very quiet or out of words.
In Α24+ we use this saying as a reminder that one should not be hasty in talking, but should rather “learn to listen first and then speak”.
The Α24+ was designed in a glass bottle, with a dispenser comprising of 4 doses of 0.125 L, each lasting 24’. The name Α24+ results from the combination of the letter A, which is the drop cap of the word ‘silent’ and 24, which indicates the duration of each dose’s effect.
The A24+ Silence Water is suitable for people with sensitivity to presentations, lectures and conferences. It soothes the desire to interrupt, enhances hearing, strengthens concentration and prolongs the period of unbroken attention.

Brief: Sugar Daddy’s bakery is famous for its unique cupcakes. Chefs are constantly inventing new recipes and adding it to the menu every month. The bakery wanted this uniqueness to reflect in their packaging too.
Idea: We quantified what the taste buds of our customers experienced. So for example if a cake that offered a surprise in every bite weighed 1200 grams, the packaging would read, ‘1200 grams of surprise’. We created 11 different packaging designs that were fresh, engaging and playful by using interesting typography and illustration.
Results: Customers always had a sweet smile when they saw the one-word description illustrated on the packaging. They even started collecting these cake boxes and were constantly on the lookout for new cake box designs.

“Dr van der Hoog is a Dutch Cosmetics brand with a 75 year heritage. They decided to radically reposition their brand to a stylish statement of natural beauty. The Creative network nu:amsterdam created the new identity for the 60+ products assortment.
The designers chose an iconic centered layout, applied to simple white packaging for the moisturizers category. Colour accents in the product descriptors help consumers navigate the 6 ranges assortment. Heavy materials, refined silver lines and the logo embossing confirm the quality and authority of the brand.
In the product presentation kit the contrast of the unfinished birch wood against the shiny packs makes a great impact, communicating natural beauty in a simple way.
The younger face masks category requires more dynamism and power, which is what explains the abundant use of natural ingredient photographs on the packs.
The humorous product descriptors add youth and fun to the packs, that are still part of the brand identity.”

“Device Printshop is a public access letterpress and screen printing studio located in The Wherehouse, home of Krankies Coffee in Winston-Salem, NC. This year as a holiday gift coffee liqueur was handmade using local coffee and moonshine from our friends at Krankies Roasters and Piedmont Distillers. The packaging for the concept was inspired by the burlap bags used for shipping unroasted beans. The bags were screen printed using a unique blend of thickened coffee and dye. Hang tags were letterpress printed and stamped.”
