“Vine Roots commemorates the artisan aesthetics of traditional botanical notebooks used by the vigneron (winemaker) in their search to find and restore the memory of the terroir. An iconic design which uses handwritten notes and stamped motifs which capture the care and detail of its creator. A limited edition wine, of powerful character and exclusivity (premium), which aims to reach an experienced public on an international level. Our packaging proposal focuses on the profile of international consumers, capturing the essence of personality and memory of the estate in its visual aspect.”

“Today, it’s a small quiet Humboldt County community named Freshwater, but around the turn of the century it was better known as Wrangletown. And while Wrangletown was small, it was anything but quiet — miners, loggers, and seven saloons, were the perfect formula to breed public disagreements.
Two of Wrangletown’s most notoriously disagreeable women provide the focal point for this package. The unique town history not only provided the inspiration for the old-west look, it became a prominent element of the packaging.
The proprietary, hand-lettered brandmark and the custom woodcut style illustrations were created to roughly reflect the old west look and feel of print design in the late 1800’s. The use of multiple typefaces also evokes the era, and gives the sense that the printer used every piece of wood-type in his drawer — not an uncommon practice back when printers doubled as designers. We think it all adds up to a “sorta refined, kinda classy” package.”

“Black Bird beer is brewed for the consumer tired boring beers created for the mass market. Black Bird is handcrafted by a small group of people in limited quantity which assures that the right care and attention to detail is given to every bottle. The idea was to design a label that displays the handcrafted, delicate work of this beer production along with a classical german label style. The lettering design of the brand was completely handmade to match the handcraft ideal of the product.”

“With the THB cans, we wanted to create a bold, poppy, eye-catching package that referenced both the heritage of the THB name (the Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo railway line, or THB, active from the late 1800’s – the 1980’s) and the prominent industrial and art deco architecture in our native Hamilton (home to both THB and Poly), while also conveying the enthusiasm and verve of this contemporary craft brewery.”

“The first offering from the first community distillery on the Isle of Harris – influenced by the people, the place (quite rugged, dramatic), the tweed and reflecting the subtle colours of the landscape. Gin with Harris botanicals!”

“Our Mulled Wine design this year is a Buddy-take on traditional Nordic Christmas patterns. Every row of the pattern represents an anecdote from each month of the year, accompanied by a warming narrative on the reverse.“As we mull-over another great year, we’d like to thank you for being a part of it, Merry Christmas from all at Buddy and we hope you enjoy a warming end to the year, we certainly will.” The label is printed red and black on a silver substrate with a subtle metallic finish and matt varnish for a premium festive feel.”

“With a passion for kombucha and care for quality, Fous de l’île brews the fermented tea beverage in small batches in Montréal.
Our relationship with Fous de l’île began early in their formation so we were involved in the founding aspects of the product. In addition to designing the brand and the packaging, we assessed the initial market environment, helped manage production, named the product (with a nod to Québecois poet and singer-songwriter Félix Leclerc) and directed copywriting. Our intent was to give kombucha a broader appeal as a natural beverage made with care, allowing it to escape the limited perception as a health drink.
Fous de l’île can be found in a growing number of locations on the island of Montréal, and we have the pleasure of continuing our work with them as they advance.”

“Label Tech required a promotional label to showcase their premium label printing capabilities and facilitate a partnership with a successful producer in the fast growing ‘craft beer’ market. We worked with award-winning illustrator Steve Doogan to craft an illustration style that evoke a distinctively Irish style. The label has been a huge success winning the top prize at Irish print awards.”
