“BETA 5 chocolates are produced in small batches using ethically sourced estate chocolates and premium ingredients.
The name comes from the form-5 beta crystal structure which is the most stable form of cocoa butter crystallization, formed through the controlled melting, and subsequent cooling (tempering) of liquid chocolate.
As a result, the identity reflects this approach to the chocolate making process – a careful blend of science and craftsmanship.
The packaging design was a carefully considered and executed aspect of the brand development. Understated and refined, the packaging doesn’t distract from beauty and vibrancy of the products inside them which are an exciting discovery.”

“The essence of this exclusive alcoholic product is the long history of the brand and the storage time of the products.
Since Gin does not have a particularly the long storage time (2 – 5 years) I chose to create a concept that is based on real history, to give the product added value. I have decided to use materials that existed at the time AO Vinje lived which gave me a color palette that I am very happy with.
The box is covered with veneer that has the same color as the juniper bushes. The inside of the box is covered in dark gray wool, which was a very common matrialet in regions where AO Vinje grew up in. The bottle has a modern shape with a cap made of wood and silver.
The design of the label is engraved, then the added bronze and gold to lift the text from the clear, transparent background. Typography of the main logo is a modern remake of old Norwegian typography dating back to the Viking age.”

Designed by LT Identity | Country: Lithuania
“The special edition of “Lithuanian Vodka Gold” designed with modern ethnographical symbols is an unexpected link between yesterday and today. The old ethnographical symbols – oak leaves and lily flowers – have been revived. Lilies are associated with femininity. This symbol is often seen woven into compositions of the tree of life on dower chests. In the Lithuanian folklore the oak is associated with masculinity, strength and courage. From ancient times warriors would be presented with crowns of oak leaves, and now they are given to winners of sports competitions. Therefore the female and male elements are intertwined in the design, while the Lithuanian spirit is emphasised by the colours of the Lithuanian flag – yellow, green and red.”

“The Quest wine labels were designed for Margaret River producer Chalice Bridge Estate.
After working with the client to develop their brand strategy, we were asked to recommend a solution for their mid-tier range of wines that would better reflect their desired positioning.
We proposed a range of premium wines called The Quest, which draws inspiration from tales of the Knights Templar and the quest for the Holy Grail. The concept pays homage to the client’s limited release range of wines called The Chalice, which represents the Holy Grail of winemaking.
We collaborated with Tokyo-based illustrator Skye Ogden on the illustrations.
Printed four colour process + 1x PMS, on Fasson Antarctic White uncoated vellum paper, with matt gold foil, and a high-build clear silkscreen varnish.
The label printers Supa Stik won Silver in the Offset Roll Fed Label – Wine & Beverage Category at the 2011 Print Industry Craftsmanship Awards WA.”

We created a bright & in-your-face design for the the 12″ & CD gatefold packaging, with colours & textures suggested by elements of Jacqui’s piece. We’re happy to have given TCK a visual identity that they can run with while promoting the record.”
