“Every small town holds its secrets, its myths and its legends. No matter how sleepy and bucolic they seem from the outside, how cosy they feel — behind that friendly welcome, beyond that lazy wood smoke curling up from the chimneys, there’s often a darker melody of secrets unknown.
Hometown Homicider is just that creature. Carefully crafted to evoke warm memories of home comforts—pumpkin pie, sugar and spice—it also has a darker, smokier, more furtive side to it.
Buddy was asked to create a distinctive label to reflect this sinister limited release whilst retaining the bold simplicity of the Awestruck brand.”

“Interabang have just completed work on the brand and packaging for Dorset’s first gin distillery – Conker Spirit – after being approached by the founder Rupert Holloway.
Free from the constraints of tradition Conker are in pursuit of the new and exciting, with a ruthless focus on quality, and they wanted their bottle to reflect this.
Design cues were taken from the name, which inspired the shell-like shape of the main label. The name also led to the ‘CO’ ligature in the word marque (a graphic conker on a string), which is used as a visual shorthand for the brand.
Dorset is key to Conker. As well as the location for the distillery, the gin uses New Forest spring water and botanicals unique to the area such as handpicked gorse flowers (which influenced the distinctive yellow colour of the batch label). Inspired by the coast, we looked to the typography of vintage railway signs, tickets and posters to evoke the nostalgia of trips to the seaside, and the bottle itself was chosen for its nautical feel.
Copper foil blocked accents were used, as well as a copper lid, to reflect the traditional copper pot distilling process.”

“The target audience of this product became young people who lead an active lifestyle, trend makers, those who live a full life. The customer and the wine author itself were ready for a new, creative approach for a product design, and the client addressed several agencies before settling upon a concept offered by our studio.
A special thing about the design of Carpe Diem wine is that it’s not created by traditional stereotyped solutions that are usually used for wine labels. At the heart of a design there is expression and emotion which are more important in RTB-factor for the chosen target audience.”

“Biles Inc. were appointed by Warner Edwards to create the brand strategy for their super premium gin, following a four way strategic pitch.

Anthony Biles, Founder and Creative Director of the London Agency said “Warner Edwards Gin is uncompromisingly good. The craft and knowledge that goes into the product is exceptional and the bond between the two founders very evident. The story behind Warner Edwards is rich, and deep and we have used it to inform the design.”

“With the growing popularity of boutique wines, it has become increasingly important for small producers to embrace packaging that is expressive, intriguing and atypical. To do so, we drew inspiration from the Cruse Wine Company’s maverick attitude by contrasting tradition with irreverence. As winemaker Michael Cruse puts it, that juxtaposition reflects his goal to “return to California roots and California classics…but doing it in a modern way.”
Because the winery also specializes in rare varietals such as Valdiguié and Saint Laurant, we recommended an image-dominant label to encourage curiosity. So instead of a consumer asking themselves “What is Valdiguié?”, they ask “Is that a cow?” The cow is familiar and familiarity warms them up to exploring something new. On a humorous note, we once overheard a customer ask her friend “What’s Valdiguié?”. Her friend replied “I don’t know, but the label looks great. Let’s try it.”

“The Henderson’s range from the Kent cider company offers a more traditional flavours to the core range.Previous designs eluded to a Victorian age and we really expanded on this idea. Each variant is inspired by a different Victorian poster style. The toffee apple takes inspiration from old circus posters, the Elderflower is inspired by botanical book plates and the Spiced cider models itself on Victorian elixirs.”

“Big Cork Vineyards, a startup winery in Maryland, came to us with a problem: they wanted to make a BIG impact as they launched their new winery and 10,000 sq ft state-of-the-art tasting room… but they were stuck with fragmented and out-dated graphics from a local design firm assigned to the initial round of design efforts for the project. Jar’s goal was to rebrand, giving Big Cork a palette of unique, proprietary and memorable assets to rebuild on, so that the name didn’t always overshadow the product, or the guest’s experience, in an overtly sexual way. Once the key attributes of the brand were solidified (clever, unexpected, happy, adventurous, playful and discover) we were free to create a wide range of designs, labels, stationery, photography, signage, interior design, and more… relaunching to much press, fanfare and success.”
