“Label design for Grupo Caballero’s new rum. The goal was to emphasize the product’s caribbean roots by stamping its name “Contrabando” (meaning smuggling in spanish) forcefully over the traditional graphic imagery, as if local customs had busted an original foreign product.”

“A collaboration with Danish brewery Mikkeller. This Wild Winter Ale is the fourth in a series of four seasonal beers released during 2012. The label is printed with a heat sensitive color — when the label gets warm the apple tree loses its leaves. Limited to 3,500 bottles.”

“What do you get when you combine words and phrases with good honest beer?… BoB.
Short for ‘Best of British’, this St Albans based microbrewery uses quirky wordplay to set them apart.
We’ve worked with BoB to develop a modern and distinctive brand identity, with a touch of tradition for good measure, and a label system that can adapt to an ever increasing range of amazing beers, bitters and ales. With such inspired beer names as ‘BoB Shurunkel’, ‘BoB Erjob’ and ‘BoB Bidazzler’, we’ve let the beers do the talking.
The visual hierarchy ensures that the ‘BoB’ identity works hand-in-hand with each beer name whilst an unconventional colour palette marks this friendly brewery as a true one-off – now fully prepared for an ever increasing demand from local restaurants and pubs.”

The labels, which show artistic backgrounds and illustrations, emphasize the unique character of the wine and the concept is completed by means of the texts.”

“The idea was to create the wine for those, who love wine, but every time the person goes to the shop, doesn’t know which to choose. On the pack you can find the best suitable case for drinking it, the best temperature, which food best suits etc.”

“Our friends at Slamsey’s Farm make gins each year with fruits handpicked from their own fields and hedgerows. After discovering that famous naturalist John Ray was born near the farm in 1627, we created a set of labels for the brand featuring intricate insect illustrations – a nod to his meticulous cataloguing of the local flora and fauna, and Slamsey’s careful gin-making craft. The final designs are countryside-inspired, but stylish enough to grace the city’s hippest bars.”

“Against a backdrop of an economy still struggling to recover, our Christmas gift to clients and friends this year is a little easier to swallow… an Austerity Measure to raise a smile.
“Design agencies will often send bottles of wine or port to their clients at Christmas but this is about the economies of scale, literally. We sent out 60 of these miniature bottles during the week that chancellor George Osborne gave his autumn statement, making the idea very timely. Yes, it’s tough out there… but it doesn’t stop us thinking of engaging ideas.” Neil Hedger, Distil Studio.”

“The story began in San Antonio, Texas 1948 when the children of Mac Frankie started hanging out at the brewery. There wasn’t too much to do at the brewery for the young potential alcoholics, so they started playing games with the old corks laying around on the ground. Numerous games were invented at the brewery, and these games have been played all around the world without knowing the names of them. In your hand you have the toughest game of all the one we invented. “The Grenade”. Except for being one hell of a tough game we have brewed out most dangerous beer yet, using Frankie’s unique centuries old methods. Enjoy!”

“Over the course of six months I defined the brand positioning, and developed the visual identity system for a fictitious beer brand based on the current scenario of the Brazil’s beer market. It’s the dawning of the “Cervejaria República”.
This project defines various aspects that concern those elements of communication, through its naming, voice and visual communication throughout. Within this are the brand’s signature (symbols, logo, typography), institutional colors, palettes and patterns, labels, and packaging among others.
It’s inspired by three main elements that, combined, serves the brand’s guidelines:
- The Wheat, representing beer.
- The Republic, representing Brazil’s old republic period.
- Brazilian Style, representing the needs of defining and discussing the dawn of a legitimate brazilian brewing school.”
