The aim was to show that the two wineries belong together but produce wines from two different German wine regions.

“The essence of this exclusive alcoholic product is the long history of the brand and the storage time of the products.
Since Gin does not have a particularly the long storage time (2 – 5 years) I chose to create a concept that is based on real history, to give the product added value. I have decided to use materials that existed at the time AO Vinje lived which gave me a color palette that I am very happy with.
The box is covered with veneer that has the same color as the juniper bushes. The inside of the box is covered in dark gray wool, which was a very common matrialet in regions where AO Vinje grew up in. The bottle has a modern shape with a cap made of wood and silver.
The design of the label is engraved, then the added bronze and gold to lift the text from the clear, transparent background. Typography of the main logo is a modern remake of old Norwegian typography dating back to the Viking age.”

“The special edition of “Lithuanian Vodka Gold” designed with modern ethnographical symbols is an unexpected link between yesterday and today. The old ethnographical symbols – oak leaves and lily flowers – have been revived. Lilies are associated with femininity. This symbol is often seen woven into compositions of the tree of life on dower chests. In the Lithuanian folklore the oak is associated with masculinity, strength and courage. From ancient times warriors would be presented with crowns of oak leaves, and now they are given to winners of sports competitions. Therefore the female and male elements are intertwined in the design, while the Lithuanian spirit is emphasised by the colours of the Lithuanian flag – yellow, green and red.”

“The Quest wine labels were designed for Margaret River producer Chalice Bridge Estate.
After working with the client to develop their brand strategy, we were asked to recommend a solution for their mid-tier range of wines that would better reflect their desired positioning.
We proposed a range of premium wines called The Quest, which draws inspiration from tales of the Knights Templar and the quest for the Holy Grail. The concept pays homage to the client’s limited release range of wines called The Chalice, which represents the Holy Grail of winemaking.
We collaborated with Tokyo-based illustrator Skye Ogden on the illustrations.
Printed four colour process + 1x PMS, on Fasson Antarctic White uncoated vellum paper, with matt gold foil, and a high-build clear silkscreen varnish.
The label printers Supa Stik won Silver in the Offset Roll Fed Label – Wine & Beverage Category at the 2011 Print Industry Craftsmanship Awards WA.”

“3R Tequila is a 100% de Agave Organic Tequila, of remarkable smoothness, purity and strength, a spirit of passion, boldness and freedom.
3R contacted Redthumb, a small independent branding agency, with an incredible opportunity – create a ‘kick-ass’ design for a brand with an incredible true family story. The client wanted to redefine the Tequila category, and break new ground by creating something bold, outstanding and passionate. Initially launching in Sweden, 3R is also looking to expand to North America, the rest of Europe and Asia.

“My friend, Angela Stephen-Dewhurst, and I organized a Depression-Era Circus Tea Party for our friends. For the 11×17 invitation poster, I illustrated 3 characters: the World’s Strongest Man, the Ringmaster, and the World’s Tallest Woman. These characters also made appearances on the wine bottles, along with a few other characters, including a fairly accurate self-portrait of myself and Angela on the Clown Label. Labels were printed on glossy 80LB text, and to add to the quirkiness of the event were adhered onto mismatched wine labels.”

“The Chalice wine labels were designed for Margaret River producer Chalice Bridge Estate.
The Chalice is an icon range of prestige and perfection. These limited release wines represent the Holy Grail of winemaking, and incorporate select parcels of the finest fruit from the Chalice Bridge single vineyard estate in Southern Margaret River. The wine is barrel-fermented and left for fourteen months in new French oak barriques to develop its superior flavours.
The elegance and simplicity of the design reflects the premium positioning of this product.
Printed 4x PMS on Fasson Antarctic White uncoated vellum paper, with matt gold and silver foil, sequential bottle numbering, and a high-build clear silkscreen varnish.
The label printers Supa Stik won Gold in the Offset Roll Fed Label – Wine & Beverage Category at the 2011 Print Industry Craftsmanship Awards WA.”

“I recently developed packaging for a Gastronomy graduate.
The objective of his final project was to create a fictitious brewery, Cervejaria Pampeana, and it’s beer, Rubia – a beer made of Pitanga, a little summer fruit from Brazil.
The concept of the project is that Rubia – a name that refers to the color of the fruit was a different beer, lighter than the others, to be consumed only during the summer months.”

“Creencias is tequila distilled with respect to its history, its original process and yourself. Just as it was made in 1920. By not using any chemicals to grow it, distill it or aging it, we manage to bottle an all organic tequila, which unlike the rest, is kind to you and to the planet. Made timeless at Rancho El Mirador, Jalisco, Creencias Organic Tequila seems like an unlikely product today. Time cannot be stopped, but it sure can be bottled.”

“This is my entry into AGDA’s Poster Annual. The theme this year is music, so I’ve made a wine bottle devoted to my favourite misheard song lyric from Led Zepplelin’s “Stairway to Heaven”. The real lyric is “as we wind on down the road” but it often gets misheard as “there’s a wino down the road.” Led Zeppelin fans will also notice something else special on the bottle. I had the label laser etched onto a giant flagon of red wine and shot it against black for the final poster.”
