“The Westerham Brewery is one of Kent’s finest craft brewers, producing exceptional real ales from locally sourced ingredients.
In partnership with their German friend and master brewer Markus Lotz, the Westerham Brewery brought together the best of each country’s brewing processes to create a range of German style beers.
D. Studio came up with the strapline ‘German beer, Kent accent’ to reflect the coming together of the two great brewing nations. This idea was reflected in the label design with the top half featuring hand crafted German blackletter script and border styling whilst the bottom half was a more English affair.
D. Studio also created the names for the beers, which further expressed the idea and communicated the style of each beer with an anglo-German play on words.”

“A retro-inspired red and white pattern, which replaced Jam Jar’s original checkered gingham on the capsule and carton. A change was called-for after the original design came under trademark infringement claims by a large food products corporation. An initiative was drawn to create a new, distinctive and lively design, that stayed true to Jam Jar’s messaging as “Sweet Perfect… Simple, Pure and Honest.”

“I wanted to focus on the strong fruity taste of the wine that has a slight a touch of mystery to it. Since it’s a modern wine I let the typography, which is a bit playful – but at the same time pretty strict, tell that story. The grapes stand for the mystery and indulge you to taste it. Maybe it’s the forbidden fruit?”

“Packaging design for a fictional brand of Sake that I came up with that some will recognize as the name of a certain blade covered villain in a popular cartoon about a certain team of adolescent, martial-arts practicing reptiles.
The design is inspired by Japanese calligraphy and zen ideals.”

“Speck Bros. Wines allows the Specks the agility to produce wines that express the other aspects of their personal story and interests without diluting their previous successful brands such as Henry of Pelham and Sibling Rivalry Wine.
Insite began assisting them on the personality and visuals of this new House Wine Co. brand by creating series of art and illustrations that could embody the idea of a House Philosophy. The goal of House Wine Co. is to re-establish peoples’ belief in the house wine as a confident choice, similar to that of a restaurants house specialty.
Eventually, and many sketches and iterations later, we arrived at a simple and honest chalk form of illustration and writing that would express the easy and sincere wine in the bottle.
A package was created as well as carton. To ensure the story could be well told to a wide audience, we filmed a series of videos to explore the idea of house wine and how a house specialty or favourite go to wine can make life or experiences simpler and more enjoyable.”

“The Playground is a brand born out of experimenting or ‘playing’ with different grape varieties. Only a limited quantity is released and sold at Teusner’s winemaking facility or on their website. It may not be available every vintage and each release might be a different variety or blend. The product price may vary between A$18-$30. With these parameters in mind, we were geared for the challenge to create an interesting solution that would be cost effective to produce.
When we were briefed for this project, winemaker Kym Teusner mentioned ‘throwing barrels around the winery”. 1980′s video game ‘Donkey Kong’ immediately sprang to mind. We developed concepts inspired by this visual reference, which evolved to the final playful solution featuring an illustration of two monkeys and a seesaw made of wine objects. Teusner’s distinctive oval branding was retained for recognition.”
