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.”

“Established in 1925, Guglielmo Winery in Morgan Hill was in need of a brand overhaul. They approached us to take a holistic approach and provide brand consultancy with the aim of better positioning themselves within the industry.
The process required an intimate approach and complete transparency about their current positioning and where they needed to be in the future. This detailed approached led us to accentuating their biggest asset – their heritage – and adding a considered modernity to the three brands of wines.

“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.”
