“Many of us at Zeus Jones are fans of good Scottish whisky. That being the case, we created a set of tasting kits and gave them to family and friends over the holidays as a companion to our PR%F iPad app. The kits, which feature one whisky from each region of Scotland, were each printed and dipped by hand.”

Lion à plume is the unusual name of a belgian brewery created in 2009 by a young passionate man, Julien Gascard. The latter does not hesitate to think outside the box and upset traditions in order to craft new possibilities for the simple, yet complex product of beer.
The packaging is modern, innovative and consistent with the product. Through a creative use of typography and short explanations, the origin and taste of the beers are underlined. A bright, fresh style for the “Carioca”, a festive and refreshing beer with a citrus tang. Summer colors and pictures of manual labor for the “Metisse”, used to refresh farm workers during the harvest season. A dark and constructivist style for the “Potiche”, a modern version of the traditional stout brewed for Empress Catherine II of Russia’s court.

Rooted in the same spirit of discovery as celebrated explorers, Lewis & Clark – and named for the year they first discovered Washington’s Columbia Valley – 1805 is an outstanding new wine from Washington’s Columbia Valley.
Drawing on the region’s rich heritage, the label design presents this significant date in a simple, elegant, yet contemporary manner, so as to connect with today’s consumers. The overlapping silver foil numerals are distinctively staged on a rich matte black background punctuated by the hand-drawn L&C monogram, honoring the two noteworthy explorers. It is also featured proudly on the capsules.
Recently launched at retail, the design is consistently presented across four varietals, including both red and white wines, so as to help build recognition for this newly innovated brand.

For this year’s holiday bottle, and as a contrast to last year’s, Stranger & Stranger have gone lo-fi. Their writer had a load of fun with all the of copy throughout and also wrote all of the Christmas ads on the bag. We can’t wait to get our hands on the real thing.

“Device Printshop is a public access letterpress and screen printing studio located in The Wherehouse, home of Krankies Coffee in Winston-Salem, NC. This year as a holiday gift coffee liqueur was handmade using local coffee and moonshine from our friends at Krankies Roasters and Piedmont Distillers. The packaging for the concept was inspired by the burlap bags used for shipping unroasted beans. The bags were screen printed using a unique blend of thickened coffee and dye. Hang tags were letterpress printed and stamped.”

“Hello Winelovers! This box contains 4 glasses for red wine (white wine/champagne). The shape is unique and makes the wine feel bigger.
The man on the front of the package is a famous Swedish wine connoisseur called Bengt Frithiofsson. He is known for his passionate and personal attitude towards wine and he often starts his TV shows by saying “Hello Winelovers”. The glasses is a collaboration between him, an industrial designer and a swedish glass company; SEA glasbruk. Our solution was to make the famous Bengt Frithiofsson the “cover-boy” of the package and to let him tell the interesting story of the unique design of the glasses, both on the front and on the backside. The rough brown box with its rope handle is inspired by cases for wine bottles.”
