“For the Sputnik Vodka redesign, the key was to mark the historic moment in 1957 when the Russians beat the USA in the space race and successfully launched the first man made object into space.
The combination of contemporary and retro Russian graphic art provides a simple platform for the brands core equities to tell this romantic story. The space ship and orbiting Sputnik satellite provide the drama” says Sputnik designer Paul Bennett who conceived the design during his time at the Brand Union, London.
During my 12 year career in product branding this still ranks as one my favourite pieces.”

“The Dada movement was a huge source of inspiration to the design of this top end boutique wine package. Typographically we settled on Braggadocio, a strange hybrid with characteristics of both sans serif and modern faces; and it belongs very much to its time. Like high society in the 1920’s, it should not be taken too seriously. But don’t be fooled – this juice is the real deal!”

“The packaging of the product – white wine from Sweden is totally based on Swedish characteristics. The cross from the Swedish flag, the color of the glass and the poetic name of the wine – which is also a bit in contrast with the rough Swedish landscape.”
