Designed by by north™ | Country: Norway
“In February 2014 Mack Isbjørn is back on the shelves after being away since 2007. This is the first project by north™ has taken on for Macks Ølbryggeri, the worlds northernmost brewery. The goal for Isbjørn is to establish it as a competitor to products like Tuborg pilsener and Ringnes pilsener who today dominate the lower price-bracet in the beer-category in Norway, and to recruit new customers to Mack.

Designed by One Trick Pony | Country: United States
“This is the 10th year our agency is celebrating the “Alcoholidays,” so we had to commemorate the occasion in true, ridiculous, and overthe- top style. We created 12 new holidays for our clients to celebrate throughout the year, casted different men from the agency as models for each month, and put the ladies in control to flip the pin-up calendar stereotype on its head. We wrapped the whole thing up in a 2-color overprint technique that required custom decoder glasses to see, and bound it on a die-cut chipboard that was silkscreened inhouse. The result was 365 days full of Alcoholiday cheer.”

“The Figula winery vineyards are located at Balatonfüred and its sounding places. One such place is Balatonszőlős – Sóskút. This winery is one of the most beautiful areas and it is mentioned as a crown jewel of the winery. From here came our idea to deal with the coat of arms of the two areas. In compliance with the rules of heraldic coat of arms the combination of the two places has been created. As a great shield the coat of arms of Balatonfüred embraces the coat of arms of Balatonszőlős in a shape of a heart. This is the Fess Point, the most important element of the coat of arms. Thus this sign embodies in a authentically manor the relationship between Wine, Winery and Sóskút-vineyard.
In this concept we created a custom font for the winery that is modern, but also reflects to the basics of the heraldic emblems.”

Designed by MM Identity Lab | Country: United States
“Every year, MM Identity Lab produces a calendar that correlates with the Chinese Zodiac. Because 2014 is the Year of the Wooden Horse, we decided to create a poker-inspired desk calendar that doubles as a deck of cards. The woodcut-style illustration and wooden holder play off of the Zodiac. 12 of the 52 cards in the deck represent the 12 months in the year and correlate with the four seasons. These calendar cards can be displayed on the wooden holder to guide a person through 2014. Come the next year, the calendar can hang around as a custom-designed deck of playing cards.”

Designed by Fifty3 | Country: United Kingdom
“Dámes Labouré-roi 2010 is a classic complex French red. The brief was to make a classic Bordeaux bottle seductive, mysterious and complex. So we made the taste notes the key element on this print, with a rich copper foil on a substantial recycled board it really makes a pretty good looking bottle label. Each bottle is hand dipped in a copper wax to finish is off.”
