“Our latest design for AQ Norwegian Aquavit is called SQ Sommeraquavit. The product itself is a smooth and mellow aquavit matured in white wine casks, and the bottle is inspired by the equally peaceful and bright Scandinavian summer nights.
Our ongoing relationship with the manufacturer has included designing the entire brand identity for AQ New Norwegian Aquavit, as well as developing the branding strategy and bottle designs for their entire range of spirits.”

“Sydney’s iconic restaurant, Wildfire asked us to create the labels for their new range of wines sold through the restaurant.
For the designs, we were inspired by the tradition of Venetian Theatre Masks. As with the wines, each mask represented a character, mood and embraced the notion of mystery, joy, fun, playfulness and theatre, fitting of the dining experience at wildfire.
Silver foil stamp and UV varnish helped give the label and extra dimension and life.”

“SAA were tasked with creating a distinctive packaging solution for the Shepherd & Neame ale classic collection. A collection based on 18th century IPAs which relied on generous hopping to protect exports during arduous journeys, this modern incarnation retains the strength, body and strong hop character which is synonymous with this beer’s provenance.
Harking back to 18th century label design we created typographic executions that also reflected the individual taste and flavour of each ale.”

“King Louis Bier is a young German (Bavarian) beer for young people. Bavaria is one of Germany’s very unique states with strong traditions (“Lederhosen”, “Oktoberfest”, the Alpes mountains, etc.). The historical person of King Louis (“Koenig Ludwig II von Bayern” / King Louis II of Bavaria – last century’s famous Bavarian king) represents this tradition.”

“Folksaga is a Swedish distillery of akvavit, a traditional scandinavian liquor flavored with ingredients such as caraway, anise, or ginger. The concept behind the project was to broaden akvavit’s appeal to an American market while maintaining its rich, nordic roots. Each bottle features a popular folk tale from Sweden. Ranging from murky mermaids to terrible trolls, these mythological characters are always up to no good — preying upon travelers lost in the wild. The project was art directed by Paul Kepple of Headcase Design.”

“Brief: Launched before the cider trend properly exploded onto the New Zealand market, the success of DB’s Crushed Apple Cider soon led to a Pear variant, and the need for a new 12-pack range. The company had a strong offering in place: a premium cider, 100 per cent sourced from New Zealand raw materials instead of the concentrate used by competitors. What it needed was packaging that would vocalize the product’s unique selling point.”

“Lansdowne Vineyard is a small, family-run estate in the Adelaide Hills. As they develop their list there’s been an approach to design each wine label based on it’s unique qualities – this is also a reflection of how they choose their winemakers – on a per wine basis. This strategy is built to target specific audiences and builds a brand that’s a sum of it’s individual characters.”
