“The two kinds of grape, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, that constitute this wine are grown in Villány, Remete-dűlő (remete – hermit, dűlő – hillside ). When choosing the cave-motif as the central icon of the design, I was trying to unfold the implication of this telling place-name, namely: the solace of a hermit. Then, this motif has been mixed with the Omega-sign, commonly known as the symbol of the beginning and end of all things. Another central motif of the label derives from a good observation of the wine itself: when serving genuine red wine, a so called glicerine-ring appears on the rim of the glass, creating a crown on the wine. Thus, my plan was based on this silver transition, referring to the high qualities of this wine.”

“Nick came to us with his idea of creating authentic high-quality RTD frozen cocktails and challenged us with the task of identifying a positioning, naming and packaging design for the brand.
The current competitors in the market did not emulate the flavour and quality of hand mixed cocktails. We identified a brand positioning for Köld, which focussed on the idea of sophisticated urban cool and tapped into the trend for all things Scandinavian. This allowed the brand to be clearly differentiated from the competitors who mostly focussed on fun with fruity sweet cocktails. Köld targets those who enjoy authentic cocktails and want to be able to recreate this taste experience at home. Köld cocktails are sealed into individual serve pouches which are placed in the freezer and then squeezed into your glass and served KÖLD, a perfect cocktail guaranteed every time.
As it is a frozen cocktail, we wanted something clear, pure and unique. The snowflake gave us the opportunity to create something bold and iconic for impact at fixture, whilst allowing the flexibility for individual flavour communication.”

“The Figula winery vineyards are located at Balatonfüred and its sounding places. One such place is Balatonszőlős – Sóskút. This winery is one of the most beautiful areas and it is mentioned as a crown jewel of the winery. From here came our idea to deal with the coat of arms of the two areas. In compliance with the rules of heraldic coat of arms the combination of the two places has been created. As a great shield the coat of arms of Balatonfüred embraces the coat of arms of Balatonszőlős in a shape of a heart. This is the Fess Point, the most important element of the coat of arms. Thus this sign embodies in a authentically manor the relationship between Wine, Winery and Sóskút-vineyard.
In this concept we created a custom font for the winery that is modern, but also reflects to the basics of the heraldic emblems.”

“Dámes Labouré-roi 2010 is a classic complex French red. The brief was to make a classic Bordeaux bottle seductive, mysterious and complex. So we made the taste notes the key element on this print, with a rich copper foil on a substantial recycled board it really makes a pretty good looking bottle label. Each bottle is hand dipped in a copper wax to finish is off.”
