Pablo Y Walter

Designed by Biles Inc. | Country: United Kingdom

“Leading UK wine distributor and producer BOUTINOT, has unveiled a new exciting Argentinean Malbec from Mendoza called Pablo y Walter, with all new packaging created by London award winning design agency, Biles Inc.

Symbolised by a handshake on the bottle, the brand is an homage to the friendship between two wine industry figures Paul Boutinot (Pablo in Spanish) and Walter Bressia (the wine maker).

Through the use of rich and bright colours the wine’s packaging also aims to reflect the vibrancy, culture and colour of Mendoza.

“A good bottle of wine captures a time and a place and the spirit of the people that made it. Pablo Y Walter does exactly that” claims Anthony Biles, the agency’s creative director.”

Fyne Ales Sanda IPA

March 25, 2013 | No Comments

Designed by Matt Burns | Country: United Kingdom

“The Fyne Ales Sanda IPA packaging brief was to capture a sense of the brewery’s provenance, with a true representation of the beer style, that being an American IPA.

Up front, a wood type (Dharma) and bold colour selection enforces the American characterises of the product, although it’s the finer detail which plays homage to the location of Fyne Ales. Fyne Ales is located in Argyll Scotland, right in the heart of Loch Fyne. The detail on the label references the area with illustrations of the Highland Cow, the iconic tree farms, the salmon, the rain and the stag.

There may be a sense of repetition in the placement of these illustrations, however the placement is purposely irregular. This is a subtle feature, but it is to demonstrate the diverseness and also the unpredictable nature of the land; There is always a surprise around the corner, whether it would be a pack of stag or an impromptu snow storm.

This detail is brought to life with a Tactile Varnish applied to a semi gloss coated stock.”

Johnnie Walker Directors Blend

March 23, 2013 | 4 Comments

Designed by LOVE | Country: United Kingdom

“There are some things that money just can’t buy. The Johnnie Walker Directors Blend is one of them. Created annually by Johnnie Walker Master Blender, Jim Beverage, the exclusive Directors Blend isn’t available for sale, instead it is given out as “a personal gift to esteemed friends” of Johnnie Walker. Every year a unique edition is produced. Throughout the course of this year, Diageo will gift 504 individually numbered bottles of the 2012 edition.

In keeping with tradition, the bottle for the Directors Blend is designed by one of Diageo’s design partners; creative agency, LOVE was invited to design the bottle for the 2012 Blend. Instead of using the label to describe the contents of the bottle, LOVE chose to use it to celebrate the recipient of the Blend, drawing inspiration from Johnnie Walker’s Keep Walking philosophy.”

Designed by Anti & Grandpeople | Country: Norway

“Anti & Grandpeople modernized the typical Chianti look with a big and narrow label. The elegant design makes the wine look more expensive than it actually is. This was also the client’s brief. The target group are people who are looking for a fairly priced, yet elegant quality wine. A wine suitable for most occasions.”

East Side Bitter

Designed by Saint Bernadine Mission Communications Inc. | Country: Canada

R&B Brewing is one of Vancouver’s original East Van micro breweries, predating the current trend by almost two decades. Partners Rick (“R”) and Barry (“B”) asked St. Bernadine to help with a packaging redesign, initiated by the move from 650mL bottles to a standard 341mL 6-pack format.

The design language is inspired by R&B’s resolutely hand crafted product – as such, every element on the packaging is rendered by hand, including the bar code. Bold silhouette key illustrations take their cues from the beers’ quirky naming conventions, and strong colours aid standout and shelf blocking. Key brand story elements, hand rendered in expressive type, and additional varietal information, like IBU scale, boil information, aging temperature, hop and barley type and mix all support R&B’s independent, craft positioning.”

Designed by Bob Studio | Country: Greece

“The branding consists of a strong, yet organic and versatile logo that transforms each time into a unique shape, without losing the brand’s identity, to convey the essence of the basic ingredient: a hexagon for the honey-based “Rakomelo”, a cross for the monastic “Herb Spirit”, a circle for the cinnamon-based “Tentura” and a rhombus for the “Mastiha”. All for one and one for all.”

Equator Beer

March 7, 2013 | 4 Comments

Designed by Equator Design | Country: Australia

“In the run up to the summer (in Australia), Equator Design’s beer was a small production run of home brew style Pale Ale which we brewed ourselves in our Sydney Office to distribute to our clients. The objective of the beer was to create a beer that not only encapsulated everything that we as an agency are about but to ‘create an impression’ with our current and prospect clients. We decided to do just that with the labels, deboss them to ‘create an impression’ on the thick stock through a local printing firm’s letterpress machine.

The bottle case’s were lovingly crafted by our very own Studio Manager (Master Brewer), Peter Bradley who is a genius when it comes to making anything from native Australian wood. He spent weeks producing a number of boxes which in turn created massive impact when they were distributed to our clients.

So many of our client briefs of recent are requiring us to engage the ‘five senses’ when defining our creative approach to the design briefs. Tactility or touch was key to this self initiated brief and the label demonstrates that the sense of touch is also vital when considering the path to purchase for consumers. Executed well tactility can add perceived value and indeed add to the overall brand experience.

The 5% Pale Ale is perfect for a late spring session anticipating the warm summer months just around the corner…”
