“A series of labels for Tulip winery, Israel. These premium wine bottles required prestigious labels, so the high quality of the products would reflect through them. In continuation to the new clean and minimalistic brand identity created a year ago, we chose a simple visual language with a single dominant graphic element. The letter “U” which also appears in the winery’s logo was originally designed so it would seem like the Tulip flower in reference to the brand name. Its unique shape generates a flowing and elegant contour and creates an aesthetic contrast between the light and dark shades on the bottle.”

“After five years in operation, Schooner EXACT Brewing Company approached Taphandles to update and expand on their master brand logo. Taphandles created a new brand system that allows for more flexibility while maintaining the ties to the nautical heritage of Seattle that inspired the original brand. At the same time, the new system better reflects their mature and growing brewery without forgetting where they came from. As Schooner EXACT begins to roll out their new brand, they have added bottled beer to their line-up for the first time. Taphandles updated their beer art and created 22-ounce bottle labels for their King Street Brown Ale, 3 Grid IPA, and Hoppy Holidays Winter Ale, with the goal of elevating the design to compliment the new master brand system and the quality of the beer. Each label is built on the same framework that allows for variation in color and the artwork unique to each style to stand out on the shelf.”

“Bottle and 4 pack design for a premium Belgian beer. The aim was to differentiate the brand and packaging from other Belgian beers.
ZEGE is Dutch for victory. This premium Belgian beer was made to reminisce King Leopold’s triumph. The labels were designed to resemble a medal and the black bottle adds a strong and elegant look to the brand.
The labels were printed in cotton and sewn together. The wax seals were 3d printed using resin as the material.
The four pack design reflects the king’s chair with the quote laser printed on the wood: “Goûter à La Victoire” which means ‘Taste the victory’.”

“A new beer brand from Kalush Brewery (1565) designed by Umbra Design Studio. Our first project with the brewery was the design for Kaluskie Exportowe which has a very traditional, and vintage design. This new line of beer needed to be more contemporary, and appeal to younger beer drinkers.”

“In the city of Rikuzentakata, a single pine tree stands as a testament to survival after the tsunami of 2011. This beer’s name means ‘One Pine Tree’ and its design is a symbol of charity and hope for Japan’s brighter future. A scroll-like, handwritten label seals the top with its story written on the inside. The label is a solitary pine made of three triangles facing up, symbolizing the wish for progress in the reconstruction efforts.”

“The brief was to produce 2 pieces of packaging for a Limited Edition 750mL bottle range for Scottish craft brewery Fyne Ales.
The beers themselves were designed to be enjoyed at the end of an evening and shared with good company. I wanted to capture these emotions within the design and allow the bottles to become apart of the drinking experience. By creating a sense of the night I thought this immediately set the tone for the product, but yet excitement and energy was critical to reflect the occasion accurately, as well as the modern, innovative beer itself. This was achieved by applying streaks of electric colour in the texture, as well as the use of a metallic stock that elegantly captures an warm amber light in an ambient room.
The 2 products, Sublime Stout and Superior IPA, are available at the brewery and through specialist beer stores within the UK.”

‘This branding and packaging is for a monthly curated wine club The Tasting Bench.
Our goal was to avoid the old wine clichés while expressing clearly what The Tasting Bench is about, to an aesthetically savvy key market.
The twelve sequential multicoloured dots represents the monthly wine deliveries and also evoke an image of a dozen boxed wines. The slab serif type creates a visual base, or bench, which forms the basis of the branding and the business.
The packaging utilises a simple outline of a wine bottle to immediately communicate the contents of the box, re-enforcing the ethos that the wine is always most important at The Tasting Bench; not the price and not the amount of gold foil on the label. The ingredients; wine x4, tasting cards x4, love x lots, further communicate the simplicity and honesty of The Tasting Bench philosophy.
The box ingeniously ships four bottles of wine securely, allowing for the fact the each month the four bottles will most likely be completely different shapes.”

“IKON BC was asked by Tipperary Hill Estate to develop a new look of Tulkara Shiraz wines.
People at Tipperary Hill Estate are quite proud of Tulkara Shiraz. For well over a century, the gentle rolling hills which fold away from the granite outcrops of the ranges of Bendigo region in Central Victoria have been home to some of the great wines of Australia. All of Tulkara Shiraz wines are characteristic of Australian sun and nature, showing well developed dense fruit characters, with integrated tannins, balanced oak treatment with a little smack of burning berries and leather.
When we conceived the idea for Tulkara Shiraz we were trying to show people in Europe or somewhere else outside of Australia the soul of Australian nature and the rigorous climate conditions of a region, the lack of rain, the blazing killing heat at the wrong time and the continuing drought. But wine-makers at Tipperary Hill Estate are still trying to do the best they can to produce wine grapes. We used the heated stones to burn the shapes of typical animals out on a paper. We used the shapes of well-known animals so everybody outside Australia could recognize the famous symbols of the continent.”

“Imported from a small family vineyard in the Italian region of Tuscany, this red blend was named Fatto A Mano (hand made). The label design evokes a sense of whimsy and respect for the landscape, food, flavors and culture of this vaunted region. Simplicity, craft and tradition as well as visual appeal make this label and packaging a standout.
The “Cuts” of the pig serve as a metaphor and indicator to the composition of the wine blend, roughly 66% Merlot, 33% Sangiovese and 33% Syrah.
We had a little fun with the copy on the back, explaining the translation of the name. The pig on the label by no means implies that it “tastes of delicious bacon.”
