“In 2002, the Grassini’s established a family vineyard in the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara, California. A simple crest with a ligature of the number 5 and the letter G was designed with inspiration from the five children. After several successful harvests, the family knew it was time to take the crest and build a more robust brand expression with Duffy & Partners—one that would more aptly reflect all that the vineyard and its harvests symbolized. Design components include metallic silk-screened bottles, individually signed and numbered labels and hand-dipped wax seals. The Grassini Family Vineyards striking new bottle design by Duffy & Partners is now on the market.”

“The brief: Matthew Algie approached us to create a new brand identity that would reinforce the company’s long standing positioning in the tea community.
Matthew Algie Esq. first began blending tea consignments in 1864, proudly packing them for Victorian Tea Pavilions. Over 140 years later, the company continues to take pride in its rich history (and its tea, of course) and wanted us to create a new identity to reinforce this reputation.
The project: Having assessed their competitors and target audience, we aimed to acknowledge the product’s heritage while appealing to the more contemporary tea-drinker.
We sourced old Victorian drawings to emphasise Matthew Algie’s past – choosing an individual teapot for each of the 10 teas and infusions – and balanced this vintage style with vibrant, contemporary colours.”

“Stain Solver is a true original. For the last 15 years (long before the “trendy” green cleaning product revolution), Stain Solver has been a leader in the “human friendly” Oxygen Bleach category. We endeavored to create a minimal identity system that sets Stain Solver apart from the typical heavy-handed cleaning product approach. It was a joy to redesign the 50lb bulk bucket that is often associated with nasty chemicals or Home Depot shopping. Now you can simply look through the new translucent square pail to see your Stain Solver like freshly fallen snow.”

“Created for Jiu Zhen Nan (est. 1890), one of the oldest and most beloved traditional pastry brands in Taiwan as a lunar new year gift box.
Inspired by candy trays found in almost all Chinese homes which hold an assortment of candies and cookies for visiting family and friends.
We wanted to create an unique “opening” experience, where the user sees a wonderful world of treats revealed upon opening, and also make the process as “ready to eat” as possible.
The four black boxes also represent the four seasons, and the gold boxes in the middle represent the rising sun, which signals a grand beginning to the new year, hence the name “Again, New Beginning”

From there its placed in charred oak barrels to age and gain color and flavor from the wood. Once the barrels have aged, the Bourbon whiskey is hand bottled and packaged for the consumer’s drinking pleasure.

“Mleko i Miód” (Milk&Honey) was designed for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a gift for the Polish EU Presidency. It is a set for preparing a traditional drink. Our studio delivered a turn key solution – from the initial concept design to full coordination and project management at the production level. It consists of a porcelain cup, spoon and a jar of Polish honey. The shape of each element and graphic design were inspired by motifs originating from Polish culture and tradition. The mug was sculpted to resemble a traditional milk can and the spoon is shaped like a quill pen – a nod to the poetic provenance of the term “a land flowing with milk and honey”. The detailed recipe for ”Milk&Honey” can be found inside the box.”
