“A brand new wine from Spain named EL PUÑO. Inspirated in the 1930s street graphics of political protest. (The winery was founded in the middle 30’s during Franco’s dictature, and their walls were hand painted with this kind of graphics).”

“Brand concept and packaging design for a fictional single malt whisky (spelled with no ‘e’, Scotch-style) and distillery based in upstate New York.
The bottle is tall and slim with broad shoulders; coupled with the contour lines used on the labels and the cylinder, it hints at the height and shape of the mountain range that it is surrounded by. Labels are set in muted brown and silver tones to highlight the strength of the whisky’s color. The brand name ‘Adirondack’ is printed vertically on the bottle’s front, transposed over the rear label graphic, adding depth and movement. All facets of the packaging honor the geography of the area it comes from while still presenting the simple, classy image popular with younger consumers.”

“The guys at Single Brothers Bar concocted a bitters so tasty, they had to bottle it. A brown medicine bottle was chosen, tipping a hat to the fact that bitters were originally sipped as a health tonic in the 1800’s. Eventually, bitters mingled with a more powerful beverage, becoming the cocktails we know a
nd love today. So, it was only fitting that the Bitter Sisters Cocktail Mixer design be a throw back to the yonder years, with a flair for over embellishment, flourishes, elaborate type work and letterpress printing.”

Designed by Greg Bennett | Country: United States
The Optimist is a self-promotional holiday wine bottle. Each year Siquis shows their clients how much they care by designing a custom wine bottle label just for them. The label is always created by a different designer in their creative department. This year’s graphic was designed to play on “is the glass half empty or half full” concept. Obviously, once the recipient rotates the bottle to fill their glass, the glass on the label becomes half full.

“12 Bridges Gin is a small batch, hand-crafted gin made in Portland, Oregon, a city of bridges. The concept of “bridge” is echoed throughout the design, including the metal label (pictured) on the front of the bottle. One of Portland’s bridges (Hawthorne bridge pictured) is screen printe
d on the back of each bottle. Over time, all 12 Portland bridges will be featured. The side of the bottle features the high level story of 12 Bridges Gin, and underneath, a story of the actual Portland bridge being featured.”
