“Earls Kitchen + Bar approach to sourcing their house wine is no different then their approach to developing their food menu; take a team around the globe to taste, select, and source the most delicious wines available and offer them at exceptional value. St. Bernadine designed this system to incorporate both the red and white wine varietals under their country of origin. Informed by passports and travel stamps, design elements reflect the global sourcing required to offer these wines, while still demonstrating the Earls fun, approachable personality.”

“Hangar 1 is made in California using artisanal methods including fresh fruit infusions and distillation in Holstein Stills. It is this meticulous and artisanal process that inspired Hangar One’s newest packaging line, featuring an apothecary-style bottle with embossed measurements along the side and a black stopper cap- reminiscent of a measuring chemistry beaker.
While the scientific design of the bottle lends itself to another era, the sleek shape and unique look render it decidedly more modern.
The textured labels are all printed in a distinctive design, giving it a crafted feel with a small story about each flavor variety. The labels also feature an embossed aircraft logo along with hand-drawn visuals, including fruit used, for each offering.”

“We have just brought out a new range of cups and plates that come packed in reusable packaging. The idea was to make the packaging so pretty and in such good quality that not only does it protect the product, an not only is it so pretty that you don’t have to wrap it to give it as a gift – but you also want to keep it for storing other things! The insert can be removed and the box is there for you to store whatever you have that needs storing, paper, pens, toys or any little bits that you have lying around.
There are 3 ranges; Tingleby, Harvest and Familjen. I will send you the ranges separately. In this e-mail I will attached Familjen. I hope you like! Please let me know should you want any more information!”

Designed by Up Inc | Country: Canada
“For its 2012 holiday gift, branding firm Up Inc sent clients a handcrafted bottle of traditional-method sparkling wine. And, since printing on glass was a novel experiment, two custom packages were created—each featuring a playful name, festive holiday messaging and light-hearted design.
Bottles were silk-screened with silver-metallic ink (requiring six full days to dry), and protected in paper-wrapped shipping tubes—also designed to accent the contents within. All tubes were sealed with personalized labels, adding a friendly finishing touch.”

Designed by Ohmybrand | Country: Russia
“Moscow branding studio Ohmybrand created the concept of a premium brand of organic skin care cosmetics.
The name Arboris (Latin for tree) appears on the base on the completely natural composition, which includes nothing but vegetable based ingredients. Arboris products due to their natural origin have a small shelf life. We proposed using a special ink in the design of the labels. The ink begins to fade when the cream loses its freshness. Black color and mascara-stylized appearance show the premium qualities of the product and make it stand out from the mass of skin care products.”

“For the brand Eden we created a comprehensive identity. It was important to us to pick up the connection to nature, that represents the product.
Natural tones combined with natural papers bond perfectly with colors and structures of the processed woods.
The packaging for the unique and natural iPhone wood-back-plates has been designed with a love for details. The logo is plotted on the outside as well as embossed on cardboard the inlet that presents the product and the screwdriver.”

Designed by Glasfurd & Walker | Country: Canada
“The Juice Cleanse is The Juice Truck’s latest product to launch in Vancouver BC. The Juice Truck engaged Glasfurd & Walker to work on positioning, naming, identity, packaging, and art direction as an extension of their already successful brand.
The cleanses come in 3, 5 and 7 day durations with a total of 12 packaged juices. Each Juice Cleanse is designed to promote overall health, energy and happiness. The brand is not focussed around a diet or starvation cleanse and were carefully formulated with their nutritionist to achieve maximum results, with flavour and taste being of primary importance. A health conscious and ethical approach to cleansing needed to be communicated in an educational, yet light hearted and friendly way.The brand language is a development and extension of the Juice Truck identity that uses light humour and direct, no-fuss language and iconography to communicate their products offer.
As with many cleanses, there are juices that focus on nutritional benefits over aesthetic appeal, therefore brand imagery was created that highlighted the core ingredients and freshness of the juices with distinct style and colour for promotional and brand material.”

“This is a very special project for a wine from Rioja. This is it’s story: The town’s barber shop is the centre of the world. Here mundane chat mingles with ancestral wisdom. Here, sometimes, something important starts. The wine of the barber.”
