“BVD’s design of Blossa’s annual edition mulled wine has achieved a good deal of attention internationally. So much so that the German company LemonAid Beverages GmbH contacted us when they were looking for innovative, iconic design for the new drinks ChariTea and Lemonaid, that will soon be launched all over Europe. Together ChariTea and Lemonaid form a unique charity venture, where most of the profits will be used for social purposes.
ChariTea is freshly brewed tea with natural additions of fruit, not to be confused with the so-called ice teas, made from extracts, which are on the market today. ChariTea will be launched in three flavours to start with, all totally organic and Fairtrade-labelled. “The world’s oldest drink is getting trendy again”, says BVD’s Creative Director Susanna Nygren Barrett.
Tea is strongly connected to health and wellbeing, which is also reflected in the design. Lemonaid is intended to be primarily served in bars, where it can be used either as a mixer or on its own. Both drinks are packaged similarly in a classic standard bottle that BVD selected, as it feels good in the hand and looks authentic rather than over-designed. Labels are avoided by having the graphics silkscreen printed directly onto the bottles, allowing a more integrated design.”
