“I recently developed packaging for a Gastronomy graduate.
The objective of his final project was to create a fictitious brewery, Cervejaria Pampeana, and it’s beer, Rubia – a beer made of Pitanga, a little summer fruit from Brazil.
The concept of the project is that Rubia – a name that refers to the color of the fruit was a different beer, lighter than the others, to be consumed only during the summer months.”

Located in Katzrin, the brewery produces beer of an international caliber.

“The idea was to bring a craft beer feel to the wine category. A masculine, old letterpress approach used to demonstrate the fact that the winery is essentially a four-person, hands-on operation … much like craft brewing.”

Conceptual packaging from Los Angeles based designed Marco Manansala.
“The project was to create a promotional beer packaging piece for a fictitious brewing company called, Black Market Goods. Because of the company name, the bottles were created to resemble illegal weapons sold in the black market. Each bottle took about 10 hrs to create due to the long drying times of the primer paint used for the body. Shiny yellow engine enamel was used on the removable fins, cap and on the base of the bottle to offset the matte color of the primer. Finally, a wooden box with a bracing system was designed and constructed to hold the bottles in place during transportation.”

Designed by St. Bernadine Mission Communication Inc. | Country: Canada
“Saskatoon, Canada’s Great Western Brewing Co’s eponymous family of beers has been a regional favourite for over 20 years. In advance of moving into new markets, Saint Bernadine Mission Communications was asked to update the brand to better reflect the mainstream flavour profile and positioning and increase shelf presence.
Key messaging included refreshment, heritage, tradition, and dedication to quality, shown by research to be important to core consumers.
The existing logo was reworked to retain key characteristics and improve readability and shelf presence. A die cut label and award seal represent quality, the employee founded statement celebrates heritage, the brewery graphic acknowledges tradition, and the “extra aged” text highlights a true point of difference in their brewing process that results in much smoother beers. As well, a section was provided to enable someone to “dedicate” a case of beer to by way of thanks. The design system needed to accommodate four (and potentially more) flavours.
