“Westmalle Tripel is a Belgium beer brewed by monks of the Westmalle Abbey. It is sold as a not-for-profit product with all surplus donated to charity.
My concept behind this packaging was very much driven by religious imagery, inspired by the Abbey that the beer is made in. The iconic arch of a stained-glass window is reflected in the typography, bottle and carry pack of the product. The packaging is designed to allow light through to further emphasize the intended aesthetic.”

“For the first time we dare to face the world completely naked. We launch a bottle with no label and no logo, to manifest the idea, that no matter what’s on the outside, it’s the inside that really matters. The bottle visually manifests our belief in diversity and our standpoint when it comes to sexual identities. Off course it is also a wonderful piece of delicate and minimalist design, a true collectors item” says Kristina Hagbard, Global PR Manager at The Absolut Company.

“Madiran in South-West France is a simple countryside area as opposed to surrounding wine departments, often characterized by chateau´s and castles. The client wished to transmit this rustic atmosphere. The idea was to transmit an unpretentious “every day feeling” and to open a window to the smells, sounds and impressions of a simple life in the countryside. We wanted to create an identity that would reflect this authentic background by melting humor and pairing suggestions with intimate and nostalgic values.”

“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.”
