“New York branding and design agency Mode Design Group has designed a custom, limited edition SKYY Vodka bottle for the 2012 holiday season. The new-to-world bottle decoration includes a flocked baroque velvet pattern adorning the trademark blue bottle, inviting you to touch the supple design. This innovative bottle design is the first flocked bottle to hit the spirits market, and changes the dynamic of how bottle design can be approached. Mode’s groundbreaking design blended the worlds of high fashion and spirits utilizing the baroque themed pattern with a tangible element of sensuous velvet to create an inviting design.
“We incorporated the baroque pattern into the design because over a year ago when we began the process we felt strongly about velvet baroque patterns to connote style and elegance. However, it had never been done before so we had to innovate the technique. Fast forward to launch time for the SKYY holiday bottle, and baroque the biggest trend at all the fashion shows. So while we were planning our bottle, the big fashion houses were thinking the same thing with their clothing lines. Most of the major designers are integrating baroque details into their collections. Adding the velvet texture to the bottle made it sexy, touchable and holiday-appropriate, and fortunately, on-trend.” Says MDG Creative Director Gabrielle Rein.
The bottles hit shelves in October. Proceeds of the bottle sales will benefit the amfAR organization, dedicated to ending the global AIDS epidemic through innovative research.”

“Belgium. Premium. Beer. Those are the three words I had to keep in mind while designing the range.
The aim was to differentiate the brand and packaging from other market competitors as well as clearly communicate and maintain its identity; Premium Belgian beer.
With the understated colour palette throughout the design the colour of beer creates great contrast and stands out.
Not only the material used in the package is lighter, but also more economical than widely used glass, therefore has advantage to both cost and shipping.”

“We wanted to see how some non-real brands would look like in the real world, so we started with our favourite: Duff Beer.
For this concept proyect, we focused on the city of Springfield, as the hometown for the Brewery. To emphasize the concept of tradition, we simulated a portrait of Jebediah Springfield.
This is what we think Duff Beer could be in the real world: A Noble Spirit.”

“This dark beer is brewed using smoked malt grown in the Ravenhof Castles courtyard to give it a rich and strong smoky flavour.
The label itself is laser engraved on the bottle. A metallic purple colour is used to give it a premium, yet dark and gritty feel. The carrier pack is simple and consistent with the visual style of the brand. The handle incorporates the shape of the logo and the bottle opener is used as a give-away and to strengthen the carrier pack.”

“Our long time whisky client, Compass Box, has done a limited edition scotch for the icon London store Selfridges. London artist Peter Blake seemed fitting inspiration but Selfridges have really gone to town with the in store displays.
This is a very limited bottling so get it while you can.”

Everything about piquant links up to it’s taste. From the shape of the bottle, to the colour scheme down to the name itself it all reflects it’s core ingredient: cherry. Even the carry pack holds the bottles so it form the shape of a cherry.”
