“A premium wine that actually costs more than 25 euros is offered for a far lower price: A fantastic bargain for the wine connoisseur! For their client Wein & Vinos, Berlin based design studio Ruska, Martín, Associates developed a design concept and made this offer possible by presenting a classy wine as a simple, no-name table wine with a white label. The idea behind the “Mesa/8” as the first wine of a series called the “Mesa Project” was to help Spanish vintners clear their vaults for next year‘s vintage without ruining their reputation by selling their best wines at knockdown prices. The limited run of 18,500 bottles of “Mesa/8”, the first edition, was sold out within two days.

Carl wine is an independent and family owned company founted in 1973 by Erling Carl, and currently under the management and ownership of his two sons, Michael and Gert Carl. During its more than 35 years of existence the company has developed from a one-man operation, to a business group with wine production in Bordeaux and Romania.
The Romanian low-medium prized wines are sold in discount grosery shops. The insight is that people buying wine in discount shops often know very little to nothing about wine. Therefore we wanted the help the consumer by letting the label reflect the taste and quality of the individual wine. From the cheap Merlot/Sangiovese to the more expensive Reserve and white wine.

“The Lake House Denmark is located in Denmark, Western Australia.
Known as ‘one of the most picturesque cellar doors in Western Australia’, the winery sits beside a large, trout filled lake and has become a popular tourist destination. Developed over the last seven years, The Lake House Denmark has three ranges of wine, each positioned in a different price category. The labels work on their own and also visually relate to each other to create a unique brand story.
The signature, mid-range Postcard Series features a whimsical, nostalgic ‘1930’s feel’ illustration of a couple rowing on the lake, capturing their holiday romance.
The popular “He Said She Said” label is the fun and quirky entry level wine for The Lake House Denmark. The ‘couple in the boat’ are the characters from the mid-range Postcard Series, featured much more prominently, with a humorous take on relationship miscommunications between men and women.
The premium range of The Lake House Denmark features blue and silver foils and swashes that are representative of the lake, to create an elegant, high-end label that’s a touch more serious. The red and white striped neck cuff is a visual link to the gentleman’s boating jacket from the Postcard Series.”

We love hearing stories like this. When Marie Fox, proprietor of 12 Signs Wine was looking for designers to develop her new brand she found designer Anchalee Chambundadongse through Lovely Package.
“A wine to compliment your zodiac sign? What a great idea! And the research was very, very interesting. I created unique illustrations for each of the 12 zodiac signs using color to differentiate the elements and wines: earth, air, wind, and fire. Wouldn’t this make a great little birthday gift?”

“The idea was to bring a craft beer feel to the wine category. A masculine, old letterpress approach used to demonstrate the fact that the winery is essentially a four-person, hands-on operation … much like craft brewing.”
