Carl wine is an independent and family owned company founted in 1973 by Erling Carl, and currently under the management and ownership of his two sons, Michael and Gert Carl. During its more than 35 years of existence the company has developed from a one-man operation, to a business group with wine production in Bordeaux and Romania.
The Romanian low-medium prized wines are sold in discount grosery shops. The insight is that people buying wine in discount shops often know very little to nothing about wine. Therefore we wanted the help the consumer by letting the label reflect the taste and quality of the individual wine. From the cheap Merlot/Sangiovese to the more expensive Reserve and white wine.

“The Brief was to create a piece of packaging based on a myth.
Taking inspiration from the children’s fable of the Moon being made up of Green Cheese, the idea is using the surface and cycles of the moon to replicate the strength of the cheese. Using 19th century engravings of the moon this gives it an overall unique look that the packaging needs to set itself away from the modern day supermarket brands.:

“The massage oil VoTree is made from natural extracts, and comes in a variety of 3 flavors: cherry, fig and chestnut. I painted watercolor plants which became the basis of the design.
In Russian the title ‘votree’ sounds like a call to action – ‘rub’.”

“We were asked to design a bath product line (shower gel, body milk and shampoo) for babies using an existing brand.
I decided to make a representation of the symbol through the volume of the pack, avoiding the use of common bottles and giving the product more personality. For the graphic, I used the symbol as part of an illustration but still keeping it first in the reading hierarchy.”

“Russky is a project for logo class where we had to come up with a hotel idea. I decided to go with Russian theme for my hotel idea. Russky would be a prestigious and luxurious boutique opening it’s location in the heart of San Diego. The hotel will have identity and branding system to appeal to hip and urban young professionals, ages 25-40. The unique challenge of this task was not to relay on stereotypical elements of Russian culture that American audience is most familiar with, instead I decided to look beyond commonly known novelties. I searched for inspiration from vintage documentation during Soviet Era, 40′s and 50′s Russian fine art, and of course propaganda posters. The key was to combine all those traditional and historical features with the clean look of contemporary design movement. With that combination of ingredients I was able to give a fresh look to a familiar subject of Russian constructivism and old world charm. Russky hotel is a history driven concept without looking dated provides an ultimate New Russian experience that is integrated into brand’s sensibility through luxurious accommodations and attention to detail.”

“We are students at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. The following group project was done for Michael Osborne’s Package Design 4 class.
The assignment was to rebrand Costco, keeping in mind a brand matrix, that consists of a “House of brands” and “Branded house.” Kirkland being the dominant private brand for Costco was considered the “Branded house” and a line of hypothetical private labels were designed for the “House of brands.”
Within Kirkland, we categorized the brand into six lines: bath, cleaning, paper goods, apparel, home and food products. Within the hypothetical private labels, we created the following : Ollie’s Baking Co. which is Costco’s bakery and cafe, Counter 74, a premium line of chef quality kitchen equipment, and Noc Noc which is an eco-friendly kid’s line. The entire project consisted of almost 80 – 100 fully comped items.”
