“Founded in Spokane Washington in 1993 by Mark Irvin, No-Li Brewhouse is a craft brewery which expanded to bottling in early 2012.
Originally named Northern Lights, I was contacted in Winter 2012 by former Fat Tire strategist Greg Owlsley and former Deschutes Brewery (and craft beer guru) John Bryant, about re-naming the brewery ‘No-Li’, rebranding the company completely, and creating its first bottled brews.
This main company mark references the Spokane Gondola, a series of Tram cars installed for the 1974 World’s Fair, an event of lasting esteem in the city, and something we took much inspiration from.”

“In exchange for his granddaughter’s hand in marriage, a curious young bloke presented his new grandfather-in-law, Judge, with a bottle of gin. The gin was triple distilled with a curious blend of spices. The Judge was tickled by the gin and insisted his grandson-in-law provide him with a regular allocation of the toothsome spirit. With that encouraging nod, Bristow Gin was born and went on to live most happily ever after.
Carefully made in small batches with eleven botanicals to give the Judge’s gin a clearly unique and satisfying character.”

“The Santanera Group, based in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, produces this “special” mezcal deep in the heart of Oaxaca.
What makes this mezcal different, is not only its mix of 3 different agaves, but also a dash of Lophophora Williamsii, to spike it up.
The name Papadiablo speaks of duality and introspection and the package design reminds us of an antique medicinal spirit decanter with a rugged embossed texture so that you “never loose your grip”.”

“Cuvée S is a result of a collaboration between Master of Wine Sebastian Bredal and the largest online dating service in Norway, Sukker.no (translates sugar). The goal was to create a product that visualized LOVE in a surprising way with a modern expression.
The visual concept is inspired by Russian Sonia Delaunay´s abstract painting from 1913 and tailored to William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet; one of the most famous love stories. The play was originally staged in Verona, Northern Italy which is also the place where Cuvée S is produced today. The empty areas created between the dialogue are painted with aquarelle and are thought to reflect the tension and pauses between two people who meet for the first time.
The dialogue ends…
Juliet: O think´st thou we shall ever meet again?
Romeo: I doubt it not; and all these woes shall serve For sweet discourses in our time to come”

“‘The Piece’ was born out of the brothers, Mark and Peter Saturno’s love for urban culture, a desire to change the way people think of’ premium wine and to tap into a demographic otherwise neglected by an inherently conservative wine industry. They have set out to create a highly desirable ‘street‐art’ series of wines that blazes a trail away from the expected.
Thus, in a ground breaking move Mark & Peter unveiled ‘Krush Klinic’ – a yearly food and wine event with a street art competition at the centre of the day’s festivities. Four of Australia’s most prominent graffiti artists, were tasked with interpreting the location or philosophy of the vineyard as a 2m X 4m mural. The winning artist has their work adorn Longview’s most prestigious wine.
The inaugural honours went to Vans the Omega with a 360° label design that embraces the aesthetic and various forms of street art, combining the detailed mural of the Vans the Omega with stencils, tags, and paste‐ups. Each bottle of the limited release wine is encased inside a custom made spray‐paint can.”

“Lady Blanche, Rowing Jack and Black Hope are first three beers brewed by AleBrowar, a new contract initiative from Poland. Brand has made its debut in may 2012 and from the beginning it bet on widening of horizons of Polish consumers. Which applies to both, brewed beer styles and graphic design of the project. That’s the reason why we can see characters of bearded woman, oar-handed pirate and crazy prospector of new flavors on the labels of Witbier, India Pale Ale and Black India Pale Ale.
Names, packages and all materials that promote new brand was created by Ostecx Créative, advertising agency, which share beer passion of its clients. An inspiration for creating illustrations and designing of labels was history, origin and ingredients of first three beers. Agency also cared about expressing the character of AleBrowar project, which tries to foment a beer revolution on polish brewery market, started by craft and contracted breweries from the USA.”

“Porseleinberg, situated on top of a mountain in the Swartland has just released its first vintage. This wine is one of the most anticipated releases of all the new wine releases in South Africa this year, even though we designed the label two years ago. The aim was to design a premium wine that is both ‘green’ and unique. We proposed a wine label that that made use of the absolute minimum amount of printing. Letterpress printing has the smallest carbon footprint of all printing methods, so the owners of the farm decided to buy their own 1940’s Heidelberg printer, and the winemaker took on the position of printer himself. It took a year to get the letterpress machine restored and up and running on the mountain, and another year for the wine to mature. The name Porseleinberg translates to Porcelain Mountain and the fragile white label draws its inspiration from porcelain, whilst the motifs on the neck and the blue colour on the back is derived from Delft tiles, which were a popular feature in historical Cape Dutch homes.”

“To celebrate Chandon’s American Heritage, ButterflyCannon have created a limited edition summer bottle, inspired by the great “All-American Summer”.
Wrapped from head to toe in classic red, white and blue stripes, the design for both the standard 750ml and 187ml bottles evoke a classic Hamptons-style yachting theme. ButterflyCannon also designed Chandon’s limited edition ice-buckets, towels, tote bags, deck chairs and ice cream carts – all sporting the same American Summer theme.
“ButterflyCannon have managed to perfectly capture the essence of an American Summer for our limited edition bottles and in doing so created the perfect summertime accessory for our consumers” says Chloe Lloyd-Jones, Vice President ~ Wine Portfolio, LVMH.”
