“Hart D’Lacey have designed REN Skincare’s 2014 Christmas Gift Packaging using vibrant illustrations of cranes, a symbol of longevity and good fortune throughout Asia.
Hart D’Lacey realised the symbolism of the Crane would provide a strong concept for this range of skincare Christmas gifts, representing happiness and good luck in the coming year for the gift recipient.
The imagery utilises REN’s established bold colour palette to give the gift boxes an increased prominence in a retail environment.

“When Devon-based Ashridge Drinks asked us to create a new identity and language for their premium and organic ciders and soft drinks, we were determined to challenge the category. The depiction of fruit remained vital, but we were able to approach it in a more symbolic way, creating miniature works of modern art using abstract fruit shapes to differentiate flavour and variant.
Combined with our brand line The Art of Fine Drinks, and a foiled signature-style logotype, the identity highlights the exquisite craft on which Ashridge has built its reputation. Vibrant yet premium, the identity possesses the flexibility to work in harmony across the brand’s entire portfolio, from sparkling champagne-style ciders, organic vintage ciders and non-alcoholic fruit drinks.”

“As part of the redesign of wine cellar Sabau’s corporate identity, Solo has designed the label of the company’s premium wine, Cinquantanys. Inspired by the family history, when the life of the grandfather, father, and son, becomes cyclical, in the same way that the label covers the whole bottle and starts again. A history that lasts for fitfty years (Cinquantanys). Completed with a beautiful crafted illustration (by Danilo Agutoli) of the grandfather, Sabau Cinquantanys is a personal and bold label.”

“Chic Choc is a new spiced rum produced by Domaine Pinnacle.
The identity is based on the legend of an adventurer, the mayor’s daughter a ferocious beast and rum. We thought of and wrote the story for the back of the bottle. This elixir is a tribute for all of us who like to take audacious paths.”

“We began work with Fullsteam founder Sean Wilson in 2008, helping to articulate his vision for a brewery built around the contrast between industry and agriculture. Those two worlds, along with a grain silo worth of passion and creativity, are reflected in parallel beer lines. American Progress reflects a more traditional, industrial approach to classic beer styles while the brewery’s Plow-to-Pint offerings incorporate North Carolina agricultural staples like persimmons, grits and sweet potatoes.
Sweden’s Kurt Lightner worked with us to craft intricate, textural illustrations that provide a striking contrast to the iconic typography.
Currently on tap across the state and available in growlers, Fullsteam plans to launch retail packaging in 2014. Visit fullsteam.ag to learn more about the brewery, and for a chance to be immortalized on their famed “Wall of Awesome.”

“We first met Dave and his sons back in 2012 when we helped to brand 450 North Brewing Co. That first project was foundational, ending with a visual identity system.
Earlier this year, we were excited when Dave called to have us design packaging for their 4 house beers; Scarecrow IPA, Copperhead Amber, Ironman English Ale, and Honey Kölsch. We got to dig back into the same Indiana farm aesthetics we explored initially and developed a fun package design system that they can grow into as they continue adding seasonals and specialty beers.”

“The riefing (in brief): We would like to renew packaging for our fruit bars in order to claim a better position in the market.
The target consumer: Modern consumers in the international market. Mostly young to adults, busy and health conscious people.
The design: We studied the relevant market carefully and discovered that fruit bar packaging is dominated by the same aesthetic: small surfaces busy with information, colors and naturalistic details to the end that the product look misses the point of the very simplicity and practicality that lies in the product’s making. Our client, Gaea, has a reputation for natural practices and the use of pure ingredients. We decided to place all focus on relating this fact to the consumers in a strikingly minimal way. For both the individual and multiple bar packages we cleared the front and laid a crispy white surface. Each fruit taste (peach, fig, apple) is conveyed by a domineering close up of the fruit (on the bar) and its full shape (on the box). The fruit image has a distinctly sharp character and the effect of a 3D experience.”
