“Although often called ‘koala bears,’ koalas are not bears at all. They’re actually marsupials, or pouched mammals. And like most marsupials these pouches are mainly used to hold bottles of wine. So, when Koala Ranch Wineries asked us redesign the labels for their wine, they wanted a look that was as simple, inviting and cuddly as the koalas who drink it.”

“Since Hallertau extra strength beer is heroic in taste, strength and bursting with personality, a cast of Hallertau Heroes were created to characterize each beer. The brand draws its essence from the ‘liveliness’ of the hop. It’s tradition with a twist; and quality derived from the simple things done properly, perseverance in brewing and the meticulous selection of the finest ingredients to create Hallertau’s range of premium handcrafted beers.”

“Interbrand has refreshed Churchill Wines identity and redesigned the packaging across all its port and wine ranges. The consultancy, appointed last April, won the business following a strategic competitive pitch against three other groups. A brief was developed to refresh the brand by addressing its three core values of purity, passion and patience, according to Sara Faulkner, Senior Designer at Interbrand. The new packaging for the Portuguese-based wine group is said to reflect the environment in which it is produced. We went to the Douro Valley, which inspired the photographs and illustrations on the packaging.”

“For well over a century, Newfoundland’s fishing fleets have traveled to the southern waters of the Caribbean to trade their precious catch for delectable rums and sugars. Rum barrels also served to ballast the ships, aiding the fleets’ safe return home. Over generations, this trade established Newfoundland as a gateway of the world’s finest rums arriving to North America.”

“The Scotch Malt Whisky Society revels in the unconventional. Bringing the world’s best selection of single cask, single malts to its members.
The Far Flung Flavours are three new bottlings which have been chosen as they represent some of the most exciting and unusual taste experiences available from the Society. Each eye-popping limited-edition illustration is representative of the weirdly wonderful tastes and scents of the curious single malt within.”

Hot on the tail of our feature of Firma earlier this week comes this beautiful cognac packaging. Designed by the studio’s special division, Packman Experiments, this is only a concept for now, although it would be lovely to see it brought to fruition in the future.

Absolut will be donating up to $120,000 towards the Vancouver arts community through proceeds from the sale of this new limited edition bottle. Local artist Douglas Fraser shares his rationale behind the design.
”It’s about contemporary urban living set in a crown of snow capped mountains, driftwood and steel, high rise condos and quaint neighbourhoods. Vancouver represents the spirit and the idea of the west, where the sun rises over the mountains and sets into the ocean. The citizens believe in playing hard. Work happens in the ports, and glass towers, and life is all about balance west coast style.”

“Chambar Ale is the first of a new range of Belgian style beers produced by renowned Vancouver restaurant, Chambar. With a character that embodies the restaurant’s motto of ‘Civilized Debauchery’, Chambar Ale was crafted for pairing with great food and good friends. It’s a beer for those who love life’s finer things; a beer for the connoisseur. With this in mind, the label design and production was critical to the beer’s positioning. The bespoke label is screen printed in 22ct gold, precious metal ink onto amber glass.”
