1000 Paladares

May 12, 2010 | 1 Comment

Designed by Aetlier Nunes e Pã | Country: Portugal

“1000 paladares” (meaning – “a thousand flavors”) is a gourmet brand strongly related to Douro Wine Region, a unique demarcated region in Portugal famous for the Port wine industry, and the origin of the ingredients used in all the brand products. To reflect this attitude towards the selection of ingredients, the products are divided by color (green for the salty and red for the sweeter) as two of the possible thousand flavors. Likewise, the wine leaf is the base element as a reference to its origin.

As a logo, the numerical “thousand” allows to create nice solutions for the communication materials repeating the “0″ zero. The packaging (both cookies and marmalade ) is highly versatile in the way that it allows the creation of different displays for the product by combining its different sides. The goal was to create an image for the brand that reflects its strong personality as well as to create a fresh and strong approach to the gourmet products in the Douro Wine Region. The client was also looking for a simple solution to distinguish the products and a packaging that allowed it to be displayed in various ways.”

Alpha Box & Dice

Designed by Mash | Country: Australia

“Justin Lane – lovable rogue and wine evangelist approached us to collaborate with him to create a unique brand after years of making other people’s wines famous. Question was how to put years of unbelievable stories, old school methods that date back to the dawn of the grape, made up bathtub methods from Einsten-esque setups and pure genius – onto a 10×10 label… This guy is a master of story telling through
wine and unfortunately conventional rolling hills with cursive brand names would not do here. We realised the brand name and the world’s first Alphabet of wines in their tin shed which is now known as The AB&D Wine Salon and has been given the Mash hand painted touch. Each wine unique like a film project, 26 letters, 26 stories all interconnected. Available now ABCD&F – What will surely be a collectors item.

Votrys

Designed by Athanasios Babalis | Country: Greece

“A series of boxes that contain one, two and three wine bottles each. Each box can accept two different sizes/forms of bottles of the same capacity. The three sizes are either combined together or separately and by stacking them a wine-rack is formed. Even a big wine-rack could be produced in this way. The shape of the box was chosen because it is sympathetic to the shape of the bottle and it also looks like a grape from one side when stack. The box has a handle and can be carried like a bag without the need for additional packaging. The use of Oak plywood as the main material was chosen because it makes references to the Oak barrels the wine matures in. The client logo appears on the box and on a label on the handle which also explains the concept and the way to reuse the box.”

Student Work – Andrew Herwig

Designed by Andrew Herwig | Country: United States

“Captain Ahab Lager is based on the American classic Moby Dick, and its ruthless tormented character Captain Ahab. Rough illustrations and muted colors allow the consumer to dive into the world Herman Melville created while incorporating a unique beverage experience. Depicting visuals of Ahab and the whale invoke a strong resurgence of the classic novel bringing it to life.”
