“Caralarga is a Mexican jewelry design firm. This project included the creation of visual identity and the design of the packaging. The brand concept was inspired and based by the work of Native Americans, trying to communicate this idea through the icon in the logo, which is a tepee that represents the two capital letters of the designer and founder of the brand: Ana Holschinder. We chose to work with a bright and vibrant color palette, combined with a modern sans serif font, which would reflect the energy of the brand. The result is a simple, yet unique, clean and bold packaging printed in full color and matte coated, using a geometric shape printed over half the surface of the box to give a particular and friendly look.”

“Tanqueray No. TEN is a super-premium gin from Diageo Reserve’s luxury portfolio of World Class spirits. Using a unique combination of botanicals, Tanqueray No. TEN is an ideal choice for a number of serves, including the classic martini. Its instantly recognisable bottle design celebrates the fresh whole citrus fruits that have always defined the spirit with ten elegant facets flowing down the green bottle, meeting at the base, taking the shape of a citrus squeezer and capturing the 1920s Art Deco period perfectly.
ButterflyCannon was asked to create a glamorous gift box that brought its dazzling 1920’s style to life for the festive season.”

“They say that in the old days, Lithuanian men would make Starka on the birth of their first son. An aged vodka in honor of the stork’s delivery. Strong and special. Triple distilled rye vodka, with the leaves of apples and pears. Apples for richness and pears for a long, full life. Buried in an oak barrel, it would wait patiently for the son’s wedding day.
For the revamp of Stumbro Starka, we want to blow the dust off this interesting and rich beverage. Our goal is for Starka to be known as the unique Lithuanian beverage that it is – one that you should be proud of treating guests to or bringing as a gift.
By changing the image of Stumbro Starka, in essence, we created a whole from its parts: from the new, uniquely-shaped, dark glass bottle adorned with raised calligraphy and the rich label which tells the legend of the beverage, to the bottle stopper decorated with an oak leaf wreath.”

“Melbourne Moonshine is a brand new alcohol firm based out of South Melbourne. For its branding, packaging and website, we drew influences from the bootleg history of moonshine itself, as well as the shape of the celestial moon and the copper of the alembic stills used to create this unique liquor.
Melbourne Moonshine was also the opportunity for Sense to design our first spirit bottle, which made us proud as punch (Moonshine punch, of course).
The pillars of this fine drop’s brand identity include photography referencing film noir aesthetics and a tone of voice full of Appalachian jargon and down-home attitude and we can tell you, we had as much fun as a moonshiner sampling from the still working on this job.”

“The Niagara Oast House Bière de Noël is a limited edition winter warmer and like their other Farm House Ales, it’s brewed and bottle conditioned in a traditional Belgian style.
Continuing on the series of seasonal Farm House Ale packages, we envisioned this jolly Ho Ho H’Oast calling Santa with a more robust and à la mode beard. A beard Noel one might say.”

Designed by CF Napa Design | Country: United States
“The client came to CF Napa to design the custom bottle, identity and packaging for their new grape-based spirit, inspired by a brandy recipe developed by Father Narciso Duran (Brother Duran) while serving in the California missions during the early 1800’s. His brandy was described as “double distilled and twice as strong as the good brother’s faith.” Taking our lead from the time period, we designed a custom bottle that pulled cues from historic brandy bottles and a label that imbues a texture of rich gold filigree to complete the opulent embodiment of this luxury spirit.”

“Combining a warming back-story, an illustrative packaging style, and organic American Pale Ale – Super Jay is born!
PWW is a strategic design firm based in London and Seattle, and Super Jay is our very own craft beer made from the bottom up. During beer production, the flavour comes first and the brand identity second, and this is what differentiates Super Jay from other craft beers. Super Jay’s brand identity firstly combines character and individuality, with the beer itself following on to match.
The creation of Super Jay is the result of two back-stories merged together. Beginning with the ‘Jay’ part came from PWW’s Graphic Designer Mark Johnson, growing up near Lake District and surrounded by Jaybirds, this became his focal drawing point and inspiration for Super Jay’s graphic design.
Directly linking to the history of beer, Jaybirds colonised Asia, Europe and Africa, to then eventually migrate to North America, which is close to PWW with our second studio based in Seattle. Consequently, beer made the same transition between multiple continents, growing in Europe, to then eventually end up in North America within the leading craft beer movement.
The ‘Super’ part comes from PWW’s final beer in the craft series, which will be marketed and available to buy. The recipe will be for a strong shandy, with a memorable flavour.”

“This package is for Japanese Sake, which is called KOI. The KOI is a vividly patterned ornamental fish that represents Japan (KOI is also known as “Nishikigoi”)
KOI is ornamental carp that have beautiful colored markings on the spindle-shaped heroic body. They can be defined as inedible carp that have admirable figure, markings or colors. Also they are known as a “living jewel”. In 1918, first KOI was born in Niigata Japan where the Imayotsukasa Sake Brewery has their brewery.
Likening the white porcelain bottle to the shape of a KOI, we graphically applied a KOI pattern to the surface of the bottle. The package is complete with an outer box, which has a KOI-shaped window to make the display even more appealing. The target will be the people who don’t drink sake daily. Because KOI has unique bottle appearance it is able to appeal to the people who don’t drink Sake much. Of course Sake lovers are also our main targets.”

“Squad Ink has created a world first where everyday spirit lovers have the ability to customise their own single bottle of vodka and gin or cask of whisky all from their phone. They even get their name on the bottle.
“We’d been working with Archie Rose Distilling Co. for almost 2 years leading up to it’s launch in Rosebery, Sydney, so we knew everything there was to know about their incredible operation. During a workshop we floated the idea, ‘What if you could customise your own spirit online?’ Will Edwards (Founder), pretty much said ‘Yep, we can make this happen’. We had been following the craft craze with Sydney-siders getting right behind hands on projects like, cheese making, producing their own honey and even beer. This was just the beginning but it was time to take it online and offer a unique consumer experience, available to anyone, anywhere, anytime.
The Tailored Spirits range is a truly bespoke, one of a kind offering, so Squad Ink created packaging worthy of the title. “We were given the green light to go all out, so we produced stunning foiled stamped labels, that feature your customised spirit specifications and even your name on the bottle. We found that people were dying to create spirits for friends so you can now add a lucky mate’s name to the bottle.”
