The distillery works out of a historic town house which at its original erection was called the ‘The Jays’ due to the pure amount of Jay birds surrounding the hamlet it was situated in, this directly influenced the graphics using the Jay bird as a visual device throughout the packaging.”

“Bisto is the Nation’s Favourite gravy and one of the most recognisable brands on shelf and as such, deserved a fitting tribute for this year’s annual collector’s edition tin. To help celebrate the Bisto brand and put a contemporary spin on a retro offering, Robot Food were called in to put their creative heads together and deliver something with huge standout.
With the aim to launch in time for the upcoming winter season, Robot Food were responsible for the proposition and design of the Limited Edition Bisto gravy tin exclusive to Tesco stores nationwide. By taking cues from Bisto of old and mixing them up with contemporary touches; the new collector’s edition tin is an apt homage to the proud heritage of the Bisto brand. A luxurious gold finish and subtle pack embossings help bring the tin into the 21st century, whilst the bulk of the design remains very much vintage. The Bisto children and old school messaging make a welcome return and when surrounded by intricate flourishes and subtle details, give the pack a stylish, retro that remains very current. A Limited Edition tin worthy of the title, fit to display in the kitchen and use again and again.”

“Working with Supply, specialist New Zealand paper merchant B&F Papers recently decided to release a carefully considered packaging stock collection. Given that the packaging sector has some large suppliers already established, they realised they had to create a promotional piece that was unique; a crafted design item that appealed to both designers and printers alike.
Supply collaborated with cardboard engineer Think Packaging to develop a packaging piece that embraces the enjoyment and discovery of opening a well crafted form of packaging. The recipient is encouraged to explore the piece; turn it over their hands; be surprised by opening the packaging in a number of ways and enjoy the different contrasts found in the combined stocks, varnishes, foils, untreated stocks, unexpected folds, playful colour and typography.”

“The Aperitivo House is a blog done by Mag & Martin, an Argentinian couple of photographers who love drinking, eating and photography and decided to combine these passions by sharing pictures of the drinks they make at home. Then, they decided to make a small batch of homemade bitters to share with their friends. GINGIN designed the labels, using botanical illustrations, a signature to give the product the “guarantee” to be homemade and a crafted product and the use of only one color to differentiate each flavor.”

“RM is a unique author’s rum created by Roman Milostivy. RM is a blend of several rums of the Carribean which undergoes it’s final aging in the North of Italy in three diffrent casks: acacia, Swiss oak, and, finally, cherry. The unusual cask strength of 56,8% is achieved by presence of an overproof rum. The rum has a long pleasant aftertaste and its aromas are revealed gradually due to the use of multiple casks and high strength.
In the packaging design we tried to reflect the author’s approach and unusual strength of rum. For this purpose we used a symbol of a bomb in the title which also helped us to reflect the name of the drink, and placed a dictionary article with author’s definition of rum. Each bottle is limited edition and signed by the author.”

Designed by Auston Design | Country: United States
“Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Distilling Co. presented Auston Design Group with the challenge of creating the brand image and package design for their new bourbon brand, Lost Republic. The only direction given was their desire for branding that represented a monumental three week span in California history; the California Republic.
Also known as the Lost Republic, due to its short existence of only a few weeks during the summer of 1846. American insurgents declared their independence from Mexican rule by hoisting the new California Republic flag over the town of Sonoma. After 26 days the U.S. government had taken control of California.”

“Studio MPLS was commissioned by Jack Daniel’s to strategically redesign their premium “Single Barrel” product line. The goal of the assignment was to more effectively communicate the handcrafted, meticulous process behind their Single Barrel whiskies and to create a design system that anticipates and allows for future product innovations from America’s oldest registered distillery.
The entire packaging experience was modernized through thoughtful typography and iconography, innovative materiality and production techniques, and a balanced reintroduction of historical design elements.
Once the final brand and packaging elements were completed, the new design system was implemented to a variety of Single Barrel product extensions including gift and shipper boxes, limited-edition and seasonal varieties, on-site distillery merchandise, and more.”

“The Stathakis family bees spend their holidays in the most beautiful areas of Crete! From Gramvousa to Elafonisi, the lighthearted dance gives life to nature, along with the sea breeze caressing the thyme and the beautiful dunes harmoniously protect the pines from which our honey derives. This sweet choreography of bees in harmony with nature, produces a rare honey with intense amber color and fine aroma. The MELODI is an ode to the Cretan honey. We used gold foil printing and colors of the earth that represent that high quality product.”
