“Following our refresh of the Gramp’s range of premium wines, _Co were briefed to design the 50 year old Museum Tawny, the jewel in the Gramp’s family crown. Great things come in small packages and in threes; the limited release of 300 x 375ml bottles, retails at AU$300 per bottle. Showcased in a luxury customised box, this rare and prestigious parcel of wine was a delight to hand craft. We chose a premium Saver Glass bottle and designed a wax seal which was hand applied to every label.”

“Lumis is an environmentally conscious candle company. I designed packaging for their tea-lights to honour this commitment to sustainability. A recycled cardboard container with a lid will protect the candles better during transport and also be re-sealable after opening. Once the candles are gone the consumer can re-purpose this container to store something else, or easily recycle it. Allowing the natural cardboard to show, and using simple graphics and a single colour makes it instantly apparent that the minimum amount of materials and resources were used for the package. The tactile qualities of the cardboard and natural inks convey quality while also providing effective and attractive storage.”

“For its 2012 holiday gift, branding firm Up Inc sent clients a handcrafted bottle of traditional-method sparkling wine. And, since printing on glass was a novel experiment, two custom packages were created—each featuring a playful name, festive holiday messaging and light-hearted design.
Bottles were silk-screened with silver-metallic ink (requiring six full days to dry), and protected in paper-wrapped shipping tubes—also designed to accent the contents within. All tubes were sealed with personalized labels, adding a friendly finishing touch.”

“To celebrate 4 years of Ugmonk we created a special Limited Edition 4th Anniversary Set featuring a custom designed number 4. There are only 200 of these sets ever made. The 4th Anniversary Tee features a soft water-based print on black 100% ringspun cotton tee and is carefully packaged in a custom flexible birch wood cylinder that is laser-engraved with the 4th anniversary seal.
When you fold back the flexible closure on this unique packaging, you’ll find the shirt accompanied by a numbered, solid wood letterpress block featuring the Ugmonk Anniversary “4.” These blocks were custom cut from Ginkgo wood that was reclaimed from a local estate. You can read the whole story about the wood here.
The final piece of the set is a collector’s card that I personally signed and hand-stamped with one of the letterpress blocks.”

“The project was to create an environmentally sensitive package for a box of chocolates.
Olmec Chocolates differentiate themselves by showcasing their raw, organic aesthetic. The box itself is made of 100% recyclable material. The chocolates are stacked on top one another and separated by a single strip of wax paper, eliminating the usual plastic mould and individual wax paper cups. The name of each chocolate is printed on the inside the box and coincides with the chocolate itself, as apposed to a more traditional legend that is typically printed on a separate piece of paper. The belly band is also made of recyclable material, and is held together by a wax seal.”

“Introducing the Hudson Made Worker’s Soap. This small batch artisanal product is for the man (or woman) who understands that being good with your hands means being good to your hands.
Hudson Made packaging references a time in history when every item was individually boxed and packed by hand upon production. Hand wrapped and string tied with a lead seal, each soap is securely protected and unique. The incorporation of traditional printing and letterpress typography on sustainable paper creates a valued product presentation.
All of Hudson Made’s packaging is manufactured locally and meticulously selected for a truly regional product. The typography itself is balanced between contemporary simplicity and the heritage implied by nineteenth-century design.”

“Kirk and Sweeney was a wooden schooner, best known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the Northeast during the early years of Prohibition. The bottle and the raised cork were inspired by the elegantly squat 18th-century onion bottles, which typically contained rum. Playing off the concept of global navigation, an antique nautical map of the main rum smuggling route is silkscreened around the circumference of the bottle. The neck features custom hand-numbering, which speaks to the rare and precious nature of the cargo. Along with the ornate logo, the photo of the ship and the safety seal printed to look like nautical brass, the design serves as a reminder of the risk so many were willing to take for a taste of quality Carribean rum during the 1920’s.”

“Bottle and 4 pack design for a premium Belgian beer. The aim was to differentiate the brand and packaging from other Belgian beers.
ZEGE is Dutch for victory. This premium Belgian beer was made to reminisce King Leopold’s triumph. The labels were designed to resemble a medal and the black bottle adds a strong and elegant look to the brand.
The labels were printed in cotton and sewn together. The wax seals were 3d printed using resin as the material.
The four pack design reflects the king’s chair with the quote laser printed on the wood: “Goûter à La Victoire” which means ‘Taste the victory’.”
