Michael Austin Winery

December 11, 2008 | 2 Comments

Designed by Hatch | Country: United States

“The Michael Austin Winery was started by two long-time friends, whose names are ‘Michael’ and ‘Austin.’ Rather than pretend that Michael Austin actually exists, we invented stories about a character (loosely inspired by the founders’ lives) for each label. ‘Bad Habit’ refers to how the two met in a catholic high school, ‘High Flyer’ because one of them flies small airplanes, etc.”

Huni Skincare

Designed by Designworks | Country: New Zealand

“As a natural product range that works, Huni has a refreshingly bold and Kiwi personality. The pattern, logo and typeface were crafted to reflect the flow and movement of honey. The distinctive bold form of the packaging moves away from traditional bottle forms – standing out on the shelf and in the hand.”

St-Germain

Designed by Sandstrom Partners | Country: United States

“St-Germain is an artisan French liqueur made from hand-picked wild elderflowers. The picking season is only a few days each spring, so every bottle is individually numbered with that year’s vintage. The bottle shape was created by our client, Robert Cooper, who was inspired by French Art Deco and the eclectic aesthetic of Paris. This remarkable form presented several challenges for labelling. A comprehensive identity system was created, positioning the product between serious French luxury brand status and the everyday accessibility of a Parisian bistro – not unlike the sophistication of St-Germain-des-Pres and the Left Bank.”

Designed by Asylum | Country: Singapore

Designed by Turner Duckworth | Country: United States

“This authentic absinthe was created by Vinet Ege distillery in France for limited distribution. Our design was inspired by the swirling, cloudy patterns that form when absinthe is mixed with water.”

Each artist is different, with work that could’ve been found in the hottest gallery, saved on a computer, or on any wall in any city throughout the world. These are artists that are willing to follow their independent vision.”

Designed by Brian Peters | Country: United States | Fonts used: Suburban, Clarendon

Nice work by Brian Peters. The attention to detail is striking and the use of a simple color palette lends well to a broad line extension if needed. Gotta love that name too.

“A sparkling elixir reminiscent of spring. From the virginal wine-making region of Jämtland. Original recipe from 1785. Made of birch sap.

Stockholm Design Lab has created the total identity inspired by the birch and the northern Scandinavian pureness.”
