“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.”

“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.”

Designed by Taphandles | Country: United States
“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’.”

“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.”
