Original 16

April 1, 2011 | 5 Comments

Designed by St. Bernadine Mission Communication Inc. | Country: Canada

“Great Western Brewing Company, from Saskatoon, Canada, enlisted St. Bernadine to develop a new, premium Canadian Pale Ale for the domestic market. The brewery was founded in 1989 by 16 employees, who fought to save their jobs when a merger between Carling and Molson threatened to close the plant. They bought the brewery, and went on to win many international awards for their beer. Over twenty years later, this new beer is a tribute to the original 16 founders of Great Western Brewing Company, and the spirit, passion and dedication they have brought to brewing the best beer possible.

Premium cues include refined typography, ample white space, and silver metallics with gold accents. Initial market reception is extremely favourable.”

Broken Trail

March 31, 2011 | 4 Comments

Designed by Imaginaria Creative | Country: United States

“Broken Trail Foods, headed by owner Todd Broughton, is a new company just getting into the retail food industry.  They came to us to design their first product line, a BBQ sauce so tasty that it would make a New Yorker want to be a Texan. The secret recipe has been perfected by the Broughton family for 50 years. A lot of history and pride go into each bottle, so this was an important element to capture in the design.

The main challenge was creating the look and feel of a down-home Texas BBQ sauce while making the product jump off the shelf amidst all of their competitors. We’re happy to say that these bottles of joy are flying off the shelves and smothering smoked meats across the South.”

The Scarlet Letter

March 30, 2011 | 1 Comment

Designed by Parallax Design | Country: Australia

“All technology is eventually appropriated for the most basic of human needs—love, lust and sin. The invention of the postal service was no different. How many couplings found their start, and end, via an impassioned letter? Named in part after this phenomenon and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s magnum opus of the same name, The Scarlet Letter is a hedonistic sparkling version of Padthaway Shiraz.”

Jed’s Coffee Co.

March 30, 2011 | 4 Comments

Designed by Shine | Country: New Zealand

“The mainstream coffee segment in New Zealand had the potential to be stimulated by an exciting new product that did not confine itself to the old category norms.

The opportunity was to demystify the Roast and Ground category by removing the coffee  jargon, be more open and informative to the consumer. Jed’s Coffee Co. stands for Just Great Coffee.

Easy to follow design points you to plunger/filter or beans and takes you through the 3 easy steps in strength – mild, medium and strong.

With a clean, modern look, Jed’s is designed to ping out on shelf in a heavily cluttered market.”

Brand X Liquor

March 29, 2011 | 0 Comments

Designed by Charles S. Anderson Design | Country: United States

“Brand X is an innovative liquor packaging program developed by CSA Design as a licensed distillery brand concept. Brand X uses a clear, custom-designed flat decanter with a classic bottle silhouette as a blank canvas for never-ending, bottle-related visual puns. Each of the design motifs is treated as a humorous sub-brand.

This Pop Art approach to packaging is unique to CSA Design. We take a broad overview of a product category and approach it in a fresh new way, viewing the package as a surface to showcase an unlimited series of artwork from CSA Images. This provides a continuously new face for the product as well as an infinite number of package variations to fill the constantly hungry online blog-o-sphere.”
