“Vitis Vinifera is the Latin name of the common vine. This wine is produced in a winery in Granada (Spain) owned by a long line of pharmacists in the region.
For the packaging of this product, we wanted to recover the spirit of the old pharmacy. To achieve this, we decided on a bottle covered in a sleeve reminiscent of the traditional ceramic pharmacy jars with a vintage design and an unconventional image and colour for the wine industry. The illustration used as a label is a watercolour.”

“The Markogianni winery is located in Skilountia of ancient Olympia, in Peloponnese. As the project referred to the creation of labels for four products of the winery (white, rose and red wine and aged ‘tsipouro’), our goal was to create a tetralogy with a common visual identity, a clear vision and strong differentiation from the competition.
Inspiration for the labels came from the four elements of nature (water, earth, air and fire), also inextricably linked with the creation of these spirits. The color of the wines led to the choice of the corresponding symbols, while the high concentration of alcohol in the ‘tsipouro’, led to the assignment of the symbol of fire.”

“Girly Man Wine is a cork top pint that fits at the pub. A beverage series created for my packaging design class at University Wisconsin Stout that disrupts typical packaging style of wine. To be found in the typical six pack or variety packs.”

“Whispering Hills is a small family owned winery in the Yarra Valley of Victoria, Australia. The winery wanted new packaging developed for their Premium and Grande Cuvée. The wines are bottle aged on lees prior to release in the centuries old tradition of Champagne (Methode Champenoise), so it was fitting that the packaging communicate with typography and design to reflect this. They are now the wineries highest selling product.”

“When a rogue crew of 9 brewers came together and created the finest beers known to man, they turned to Curious to bring their vision to life.
Thus Crafty Beggars was born.
The understated packaging design reflects all of the values of this ’rogue council of brewers’-honesty, a sense of humour and a desire to make a craft beer that you can actually drink! But don’t just take our word for that, crack open a Wheat As, Good as Gold or a Pale & Interesting-and do your tastebuds a favour.
They’re crafty, but not too crafty.”

“Akdov is an ‘underground’ alcohol. Its very name is cryptic – the word ‘vodka’ spelt backwards. Designed with tongue firmly in cheek, the bottle takes its cues from old-fashioned poison products. The ultimate aim is to create a brand that is coveted only by those in the know.”

“For generations the Eggerdink family has been exporting “Black Stone” to all corners of Europe. The black rocks from the Doornik area date from the Carboniferous Period 359 to 345 million years ago. The black stone is a dark limestone which takes a polish. It is also hard enough to have been used locally for pavements and kerb-stones. It is sometimes called Doornik marble, though this is geologically inaccurate. Enjoyed by people from the south east corner of Belgium for centuries and finally the attention it needs. And deserves.”

“Keen and Able originally approached G&J Greenall’s about an opportunity they had identified in the ‘G&T’ market for a bespoke tonic water to accompany their Premium London Dry Gin ‘Bloom’.
Fortunately, G&J Greenall’s was already talking to Fentimans about such an opportunity as both brands were perfectly matched through their Botanical distilling and brewing processes.”

“Why be like everybody else? This question is not only the tagline for Crazy Uncle but a total brand philosophy. With this notion in mind, TAXI came up with the name, visual language and packaging for this newly launched culinary cocktail. Inspired by ‘Dandyism’, the Crazy Uncle packaging features a packet of rimmer that also doubles as a pocket square. Each flavour has a different pattern and is a homage to all the crazy uncles out there.”
