“Launch of french red wine from Languedoc-Roussillon with total antioxidant level > 3mmol/100g.
For this wine we wanted to concentrate on its advantages, leaving the wine as the protagonist trasmitting quality and credibility through real and verifiable information instead of using austere traditional elements (i.e. coat of arms) achieving a fresh yet contemporary impact.
The antioxidants in wine are found in the skin, seeds and the stem of the grape. We decided to visualize this technical information through a drawing inspired by a late 1800 french botanical encyclopedia.”

Following the Pop & Street Art series with So-Me, James Jarvis and Delta last year, the iconic Malibu liquor bottle is now given a makeover by three magazines. Each publication showcased exceptional creativity, uniqueness and expertise: Vice added a drip effect to the Caribbean color theme; Clark Magazine took a DIY approach, stripping it down to a simple white, and packaging it with stencils and spray paint; while Shoes Up went all out with a shoelace design complete with matching “shoe” box.

“A number of aged wine with the names Ampeloeis Gold and Ampeloeis Silver.
Two red wines, matured with 100% and 50% respectively;-aging in oak barrels the winery had to have an elegant, respectively, while “heavy” label to identify precisely what it offers, a fine wine for those who know how to choose.
The very careful design of labels with an emphasis on typography, but also in the actual cutting of the logo represents the company, combined with the choice of paper or silver stamping the gold stamping, embossing and the custody of the print, the result is what the consumers and customer wants.”

“Seriously Pink is the first rosé coloured liqueur to be made in Australia. For the wine maker, achieving the right colour was just as important as the end result. Its first release completely sold out in just one month.”

“Although often called ‘koala bears,’ koalas are not bears at all. They’re actually marsupials, or pouched mammals. And like most marsupials these pouches are mainly used to hold bottles of wine. So, when Koala Ranch Wineries asked us redesign the labels for their wine, they wanted a look that was as simple, inviting and cuddly as the koalas who drink it.”

“Since Hallertau extra strength beer is heroic in taste, strength and bursting with personality, a cast of Hallertau Heroes were created to characterize each beer. The brand draws its essence from the ‘liveliness’ of the hop. It’s tradition with a twist; and quality derived from the simple things done properly, perseverance in brewing and the meticulous selection of the finest ingredients to create Hallertau’s range of premium handcrafted beers.”

“Interbrand has refreshed Churchill Wines identity and redesigned the packaging across all its port and wine ranges. The consultancy, appointed last April, won the business following a strategic competitive pitch against three other groups. A brief was developed to refresh the brand by addressing its three core values of purity, passion and patience, according to Sara Faulkner, Senior Designer at Interbrand. The new packaging for the Portuguese-based wine group is said to reflect the environment in which it is produced. We went to the Douro Valley, which inspired the photographs and illustrations on the packaging.”

“For well over a century, Newfoundland’s fishing fleets have traveled to the southern waters of the Caribbean to trade their precious catch for delectable rums and sugars. Rum barrels also served to ballast the ships, aiding the fleets’ safe return home. Over generations, this trade established Newfoundland as a gateway of the world’s finest rums arriving to North America.”
