Beautiful packaging for famed movie director, producer and screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola’s Diamond Collection of wines. The use of wrapping wire to form that shape of a diamond is an interesting and unique approach. If you you know who is responsible for the design please let us know.

More vintage packaging for your viewing pleasure, this time in the form of beer cans. There is something about the simple elegance of these cans that we don’t see much of with the brands of today. Someone should also bring back the spout top cans, what’s old is new right?

“The ‘Léman’ beer label design is inspired from the Lac Léman, where Alpine mountains plunge into the lake’s waters, and where the lake’s traditional boats were used to carry the stones for the building of cities and harbours littered along its shores. Traditional label characteristics are employed, though not excessively, in order to merge this brand new brewery’s image with its production of traditional beers (Real Ale), Pale Ale and Wheat Ale.”

“Courageux was designed as a private label wine for a retailer and ts visual language speaks to the traditional higher cost wines of the Burgundy Region of France utilizing high quality print techniques and materials, yet this bourgogne blanc is at an entry level price point.”

“Klein Constantia didn’t know what to do with the grape skins that were left over from the production of their award winning wines. In the past they had fed the skins to their cows, but they decided to produce a limited edition grappa, as a gift to the people that were important to their business.
Because the Grappa wasn’t intended for sale, Klein Constantia proposed a “half-jack” bottle with a screw cap, but AT PACE was able to source 4000 beautiful bottles with a unique porcelain wire stopper. It wasn’t the type of bottle Grappa was usually sold in, since it wouldn’t have to compete with other products in the category, instead it felt unique and special. The design was simple and told the story of how the Grappa had come into being, but also made the product feel premium and important, more befitting of an artisanal gift.
Which made everyone happy, everyone except the cows that is. Which is why we included the illustration of the grumpy cow. A playful nod, to the cows who would no longer be able to enjoy their post-harvest treat.”

“Brief: a new winemaker contacted us in order to provide a visual identity to their new wine. The wine is of extremely high quality, but free from any filtering or chemical treatments So it sits there exposed, without any chemical aid for the consumer to taste it.

The client wanted to use a simple labelform and some sort of typographic pattern as a background image. I did it by simply repeating the text “villa lyubimets selection”. In the colour background of the label the pattern was printed with selective UV matte varnish against the glossy background inks. The bird at the top of the labels has puf-up transparent varnish overprinted and the whole image there has a really sensible relief. Because of using metal coated paper, the whole bird looked like metal tin.
