“This personal project is started because of my instant crush I had when I first had a sip of it.
Mead, also known as honey wine, is the first alcoholic beverage known to man. It is often known as an aphrodisiac drink as well as a preferred drink in the ancient Greece. Beside that, this historical beverage also had long been enjoyed in the medieval ages and featured in poetry, myths and folktales.
The packaging is designed with the intention to put it into the top-tier quality of mead, with an iconic status for the brand as well as the drink. As one of the main ingredients is honey, it makes a lot of sense to craft the bottle into a hexagonal shape, very much like the honeycomb. With simplicity and elegance in mind, I chose to have the logo etched on the front and the rest of the information printed on the back of the bottle.”

“Drawing inspiration from its namesake, the packaging is imbued with Bat Masterson’s life and lore. The bottle has a strikingly graceful shoulder that’s reminiscent of 19th century whiskey flasks, while the small front label lets the whiskey’s glorious amber hue do most of the talking. Serving as a tribute to Masterson’s days as a renowned journalist, the die-cut label resembles a clipped-out newspaper column, complete with torn edges like a real newspaper. The exterior box features a die-cut window, allowing the label to stand out-yet fit in seamlessly with newspaper articles printed over the surface of the box. The articles delve deeper into Masterson’s life and were custom written in the distinctively verbose and dramatic turn-of-the-century tone.”

“National importing company, Wein-Bauer, Inc., engaged Kaleidoscope to develop a simple and elegant packaging design for Angioletta, a sweet, “casual” white wine produced in Italy from a Spanish Moscato. Targeting outgoing, fun, adventurous young women, the packaging needed to be approachable, innocent and playful. The full body shrink label design delivers on its taste appeal but makes no mistake that this wine is for your cooler, not your cellar.”

“In 2002, the Grassini’s established a family vineyard in the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara, California. A simple crest with a ligature of the number 5 and the letter G was designed with inspiration from the five children. After several successful harvests, the family knew it was time to take the crest and build a more robust brand expression with Duffy & Partners—one that would more aptly reflect all that the vineyard and its harvests symbolized. Design components include metallic silk-screened bottles, individually signed and numbered labels and hand-dipped wax seals. The Grassini Family Vineyards striking new bottle design by Duffy & Partners is now on the market.”
