“We decided to have a sleeve close to the DVD format. After some tests, we agreed on 3 layers of cardboard with a big hole to see the CD, an opening on right side where you drag the CD and a small hole on the back side (this hole matches perfect with center of the CD, but is just for aesthetics). We added some felt where you put the CD which comes in red or grey.
For the graphics, the musicians wanted something without 90º angles and we (at the label) wanted something with a lot of detail, a reminder of their music. A friend – Camille, makes etchings and was working on feathers… We decided to work with her. It was going to be a bit too though to make 500 + promos copies only by etching, so we decided to screen print her work instead. We used white and red or grey for the front (it depend of the felt) and black + silver for the back.”

“Iceberg created the corporate identity for “Roccafiore“. In a successive step, the studio has developed the labels for wines and olive oil bottles. The style is modern and minimalistic trough the use of few colours and only graphics. Bodoni gives elegance and sobriety. “Fiorfiore” and “Prova d’autore” are part of top line wines of the cellar. The shots were made to present the wines through a folder containing cards with description of the products of “Roccafiore” wine-cellar.”

“Mysterio predicts your child’s future on a cotton t-shirt which is then sealed in a hand-stitched muslin bag. There are 12 possible futures but you won’t know yours until you open it. Pictured is the custom wood crate POP we send to boutiques, listing all the possible futures and providing a display board for the shirts.”

“GRAVITAS is a game of discovery – of who we are and how we have lived. There is no right or wrong answer. Although the questions call for reflection, they can be dealt with in a thoughtful manner or a more light hearted one. A certain savoir faire is accumulated in life that reflects our individual stories and experiences. Everyone can offer some GRAVITAS on life’s big questions. The game consists of 143 cards (three questions per card) totalling 429 questions.”

“This is a package for exclusive t-shirts. It has two parts that fit together and close a box. After taking the t-shirt you can use it as a box or you can open it and the two parts became a character (that will change with the collections).”
