“We were commissioned with the task of creating a limited run of holiday gift boxes for Spice Works, a local company we’ve previously worked with. In order to give these already limited-edition packages a little something extra, we developed a production method which allows us to create one-off package designs while retaining the cost and time-effectiveness of medium-run production processes. Customers are encouraged to pick their favourite pattern in order to further enhance the spirit of gift-giving by including them in the final design decisions. We feel that this is a innovative idea in packaging design because even “exclusive” or “limited editions” are never truly unique. Multiple boxes can be purchased for gift-giving without the common “me-too” feeling recipients often get. The various patterns were created with a grid system in order to make the overall product line cohesive. In order to reinforce the idea that the box is not just a package, but a keepsake, the Spice Works logo is subtly located on the reverse of the lid.
Each box is hand-crafted in Baltic birch and contains mini-mold WECK jars filled with Spice Work’s Artichoke Dip Mix and Mango Curry Dip Mix.”

“Label design for Grupo Caballero’s new rum. The goal was to emphasize the product’s caribbean roots by stamping its name “Contrabando” (meaning smuggling in spanish) forcefully over the traditional graphic imagery, as if local customs had busted an original foreign product.”

“A collaboration with Danish brewery Mikkeller. This Wild Winter Ale is the fourth in a series of four seasonal beers released during 2012. The label is printed with a heat sensitive color — when the label gets warm the apple tree loses its leaves. Limited to 3,500 bottles.”

“Emilie Wildiers came to us with the idea of building a new brand around her unique, banana-based jam recipes. She runs a well-known company in Belgium that has been creating various jams and jellies since the 80′s. But, this is not just another condiment to add to the pantry. It’s deliciously different. A shareable delicacy for every member of the family, from choosy moms and dads, to the kids.
The name we chose is unmistakable in any language. Say it out loud, and you can’t help but smile. “Nom-Nom” the monkey is not only the hero of the brand… he’s a new member of your family. Bon Apetit!”

“What do you get when you combine words and phrases with good honest beer?… BoB.
Short for ‘Best of British’, this St Albans based microbrewery uses quirky wordplay to set them apart.
We’ve worked with BoB to develop a modern and distinctive brand identity, with a touch of tradition for good measure, and a label system that can adapt to an ever increasing range of amazing beers, bitters and ales. With such inspired beer names as ‘BoB Shurunkel’, ‘BoB Erjob’ and ‘BoB Bidazzler’, we’ve let the beers do the talking.
The visual hierarchy ensures that the ‘BoB’ identity works hand-in-hand with each beer name whilst an unconventional colour palette marks this friendly brewery as a true one-off – now fully prepared for an ever increasing demand from local restaurants and pubs.”

“Arena-Bahamonde wines carried out in cooperation with renowned Argentinean oenologists. These wines are the result of unique and exclusive grapes that are divided into two categories: classic and reserve. The labels, which show artistic backgrounds and illustrations, emphasize the unique character of the wine and the concept is completed by means of the texts.”

“The idea was to create the wine for those, who love wine, but every time the person goes to the shop, doesn’t know which to choose. On the pack you can find the best suitable case for drinking it, the best temperature, which food best suits etc.”

“Our friends at Slamsey’s Farm make gins each year with fruits handpicked from their own fields and hedgerows. After discovering that famous naturalist John Ray was born near the farm in 1627, we created a set of labels for the brand featuring intricate insect illustrations – a nod to his meticulous cataloguing of the local flora and fauna, and Slamsey’s careful gin-making craft. The final designs are countryside-inspired, but stylish enough to grace the city’s hippest bars.”

“Village Farms grows and markets greenhouse grown, high quality hydroponic produce throughout the U.S. Their varieties include a full line of hydroponic tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers that are grown in a way that is healthier for people and the planet. Our goal with the rebrand was to create a current and cohesive brand voice to enhance shelf presence and freshness perceptions. We helped develop trademakable variety names that key on flavor profiles and simplify dual language application. The new packaging system utilizes clear labeling to enhance product visibility, while consumer-friendly typography and custom illustration combine to create the feeling of a contemporary farmers market.”

“Against a backdrop of an economy still struggling to recover, our Christmas gift to clients and friends this year is a little easier to swallow… an Austerity Measure to raise a smile.
“Design agencies will often send bottles of wine or port to their clients at Christmas but this is about the economies of scale, literally. We sent out 60 of these miniature bottles during the week that chancellor George Osborne gave his autumn statement, making the idea very timely. Yes, it’s tough out there… but it doesn’t stop us thinking of engaging ideas.” Neil Hedger, Distil Studio.”
