“The briefing (in brief): we have a new type of wine which we would like to brand in an interesting way.
The target consumer: mass market product of good value and good price. Foreign and Greek markets.
The design: The client gave us freedom to think in any possible direction in order to create a consumer friendly, interesting identity for the new wines, which will be sold in Greece and abroad. This is an old family of prestigious winemakers with close ties to the land, the vineyards and even the unique buildings situated since the 19th c. in historic buildings, at the areas of Mantinea and Nemea in the Peloponnese. Updated with organic farming methods, the company’s activity aims to produce high quality grapes and wines while protecting the ecosystem and the environment. All the above inspired a design based on the age old figure of the vineyard guardian: the scarecrow. An item of folk art, of basic necessity and common practice, the scarecrow has been the object of fascination by artists and village people alike. Festivals are organized around the world to celebrate the imagination and ingenuity involved in its making. Mousegraphics commissioned a well known Greek artist to draw and then make three different scarecrows to represent the white, red and rose labels. They were then photographed by a fashion and art photographer, with equal care. The brand name “the Guardians” is accompanied on the packaging by the small phrase: “to serve and protect the secrets of good wine-making “, and this summarizes our concept and its references.”

“TBWA continues to evolve the design for Renée Voltaire, this time in the breakfast product range. The body of work included conceptualization of the range as well as naming and design.
Renée Voltaire was one of the first players in the organic segment. When the brand launched it was relatively unique in design. Now, as more and more brands have taken organic positions and signal organic cues in their communication, it was time for Renée Voltaire’s design to take the next step – to once again stand out on the shelves.”

“Long Table Distillery is a producer of handcrafted, premium, small-batch spirits based in Vancouver, BC. Its West Coast heritage, expert knowledge, and dedication to organic, high-quality ingredients were the foundation for the design by Saint Bernadine Mission Communications Inc. A design identity that reflected the distillery’s commitment to craft and focus on small-batch quality was developed for its selection of unique gins, vodkas, and specialty spirits.
The design system needed to accommodate colour coding for flavours of their permanent line, as well as a system to allow for small artisan batches that are sold principally on site. To reflect the artisanal quality of the brand, key elements included a hand-stamped batch number, handwritten varietal, perforated edges, and dotted rules that act as a device to divide information on the label.”

“¡Cho! is a completely unique range of on-the-go drinking Gazpacho recently launched to the UK market. Created by English entrepreneurs and a Michelin starred Spanish chef ¡Cho! is made from organic fruit and vegetables sourced and bottled in Adalucia.
¡Cho! needed to be positioned as a completely different product, and in doing so create its own place in the market. It required a brand identity that communicated a uniquely daring and different gourmet product with real provenance and exquisite taste.”
