Designed by Cultivator Advertising & Design | Country: United States | Fonts used: Knockout, Freehand 521

Brief: Convey superior quality, hand-crafted beers. Original: Mixed letter sizes suggest too casual approach to brewing. Individual beer icons, including mountain biker, rock climber, skier, are Colorado cliches. Redesign strategy: Overall block letter identity implies unapologetic, strong-flavored brewing style. Within overall line, individual beers are characterized by whimsical, cutout silhouettes.”

Designed by STRANGER & STRANGER | Country: United Kingdom | Fonts used: FF Confidential

“A super-premium, pitch dark, high alcohol wine. The bizarre brand name derives from a childhood memory of the winemaker. His father had some ancient bottles of wine stored in a cellar inhabited by bats which used to scare him as a boy. The bottles had wax seals on them. It was these elements that came together in his mind to give the term Waxed Bats.”

Designed by Mash | Country: Australia

The top of the pops produce for Small Gully, by wine maker Stephen Black.  This limited edition wine represents the best of the Small Gully range and a wine personally developed by the mysterious Mr. Black. The concept was to produce a simple hand written, almost home made package, as if the wine maker had scratched the details of the wine into the bottle himself. A beautiful imported glass bottle was chosen that Mash then had laser etched. The words actually cut into the surface of the glass giving a great tactile and very raw feel. Something that screen printing could not achieve. The result was a cross between contemporary luxury and personalised roughness.”

Designed by James Jean | Country: United States

“I worked with the Grateful Palate a while ago on a series of wine labels, and they are finally available for sale. The theme was Southern Gothic, and I brainstormed some concepts with owner Dan Philips and designer Beth Elliot. They gave me a lot of creative freedom, and the typography was expertly done by Jeff Keedy. There are little bits of foil printed in the intricate framing elements.

I researched the imagery and stories from the region and time period to get inspired: some immediate triggers were kudzu, sprawling oak trees, and antebellum images like the Southern Belle.”
