Other items include matchboxes, Brewmaster’s Society packaging, coasters, to-go containers, retail bag and a menu. Each item has a little surprise when you open it or flip it over.”

“The story behind this brand, which was begun by a gentleman called Rigoberto Rodriguez Rodriguez in the late 1800’s is as follows:
The story is quite funny, Rigoberto was the son of the founder and being of a well read and refined personality had a great sense of humour and also was rather eccentric. He ventured in making these piscos and wines and gained great reputation. He started storing these wines in Niches – thus the name ‘Los Nichos’ specially made for keeping the right temperature.

“The new bottle for Svedka imported Swedish vodka had to be bilingual: It needed to speak to younger scenesters who consider themselves “in the know” and hang out at trendy nightspots as well as an older, more affluent consumer who likes to have a drink at home. This meant the packaging had to look equally attractive lit up on the back-bar of a hip club as well as lining a club store’s shelf, said Marina Hahn, svp, marketing for Spirits Marque One, Svedka’s U.S. importer.”

“On the 110th day we said ʻlet it be namedʼ. And from that day forward it would be called Nelson.
Itʼs been a long time coming, but the Trial Brew, also known as Batch #15, has finally been dubbed and
Trial Brew began its life in a plain bottle appearing as a silent sponsor of music, fashion, and art events
during the latter months of 2008. At these events, as well as through a website and special information
postcard, we gathered feedback from creative types (approximately 1,000 of them) regarding the look, taste,
and possible names for the beer.

“Most people would probably have been satisfied with such an outstanding career, and rested on their laurels – but not Hans. On the contrary! Instead, he left the ad agency and started Brindfors Design, from 1999 part of Enterprise IG Group. And with his creative direction for Karlsson’s vodka perhaps starting a new chapter in the Swedish vodka story.”

“Inkwell approached Mash to rejuvenate their wine packaging and brand identity. The ink splatter forms the central part of the brand identity and packaging. Logo type was kept simple and used on a neck label to keep separation between the type and the strong yet simply presented ink imagery. The label shape reflects the open pages that would create such a pattern. Uncoated stock was used with 2 levels of high build gloss varnish on the ink area, giving the label a three dimensional feel.”
