Curating the very best packaging design

Designed by Redthumb | Country: The Netherlands

“A hand-crafted beer brewed in small batches in The Netherlands, Nijenrode is a much loved local secret amongst graduates from the Nijenrode University. Redthumb was asked to create a powerful brand identity and label that reflected the elite status of Nijenrode (without taking itself too seriously), yet was down-to-earth, and simple to produce. The label is single colour, making it straightforward and pure, and also providing the brand it’s own identity colour.”

    Why thank you Jeremy for your elegant reaction. In a world of packaging there may always be similarities – especially to the untrained eye. Yes, after searching for your referenced coffee bottle, the both appear to use yellow on a dark bottle, amazing. I’m afraid here in Holland we won’t check for every bottle in every category in every country for similarities, and even then the design is not a ‘xxxxx rip-off’. Oh, and I’m not a student, I am an award winning designer with over 25 years experience, having been creative director at europes largest independent branding agency. ‘Europe’ – google it some time. After you’ve googled ‘branding’.

    Love the script and the bottle selection is awesome. I love the short bottle shape. Great Work.
