Curating the very best packaging design

Widmer Brothers

June 10, 2014 | No Comments

Designed by Ben Willett & Factory North | Country: United States

“Ben Willett, Oktoberfest: “The inspiration for this label comes from the constructivist and Bauhaus design movements of Germany, with a heavy layer of Zach Morris on top of that.” 

Tyler Segal (Factory North), Ray’s Amber Lager: “I was inspired by the classic look of sign painters’ hand-done lettering. I wanted to feature the Brothers’ dad Ray on the label since the beer was brewed for him. I illustrated him using an old photograph I was given. A simplistic, two-color design using white and amber evokes feelings of nostalgia.”

The Basics

June 1, 2014 | 1 Comment

Designed by mousegraphics | Country: Greece

“The Briefing (in brief):  “We believe that the existence of extremely specialized products within the cosmetics industry is an exercise on consumerism. We produce 4 types of products which can cover all skin care needs. We named the line “the basics”, and we want a packaging to communicate this.”

The target consumer: All ages. Consumers who prefer a modest and practical shopping approach.

The design: The idea of “the essential” behind the birth of this line is quite simple and comes from a pharmacist with a relevant experience. We used the same straightforward approach for the packaging: white bottles and a design referencing the essential. Our inspiration was the design structure and related function of the highly popular video arcade game, “Space Invaders” (released in 1978). Each of the 4 different bottles in our packaging carries a quasi recognizable shape modeled after an animal or other natural form. The elements forming each shape are the same, the basics, so to speak, but their different configuration creates a series of possibilities.”

Harmonian

May 31, 2014 | No Comments

Designed by mousegraphics | Country: Greece

“Harmonian, includes a wide range of special food, from olive oil, to flour, pasta, herb infusions, and fleur de sell. What makes them unique is the fact that many of them are based on the Triticum Dicoccum variety of wheat seeds, one of the earliest domesticated, dual core crops, in the ancient world, the official favorite of the Ancient Greeks.

The briefing (in brief): “We want a packaging design which will introduce in the most definitive way a radical line of food products. They are actually more of ‘food principles’, as they all suggest a new, health-smart and taste-full way of life. We want the design to be equally innovative.” The target consumer: Greek and foreign markets. Health conscious and demanding consumers. Products offered in specialized food shops, delicatessen stores, brand e-shop.”

Don Draper Rum

Designed by LOLA | Country: Spain

“2013 was a hard year in advertising. Bad news at lots of agencies and little reward. So, when Christmas came and the year was about to end, we wanted to make a nice gesture to our advertising colleagues: a present they could quietly enjoy, even on the worst nights.

And so Ron Draper was born. A rum (“ron” in Spanish) to remind us that even if the ideas are drying up, the clients aren’t taking risks or the budgets are getting smaller, things can always be better. Because they were before. In the golden age of advertising.”

Sun Wines

Designed by mousegraphics | Country: Greece

“The briefing (in brief):  We produce a good organic wine that we want to place in a highly competitive market via a strong packaging design idea.

The target consumer: Design conscious consumers ready to try a cared-for product.

The design: One of the most creative and difficult areas of packaging design is probably this of wine. In the case of Sun wines, we focused on the wine color and the ways it corresponds to particular solar phases: the deep red of a setting sun, the gold white of its mid day radiance, the pinkish rose of the early rising star. We designed the abstract time sequence of these phases on each bottle, with a sign created specifically for each variety and placed near the rim of the bottle carrying this variety. The sun, solar light is one of the most elemental, eternal ingredients of wine alchemy. Its role cannot possibly be measured or even described, but its value can be commemorated and appreciated.”

Juuri

May 23, 2014 | 1 Comment

Designed by Werklig | Country: Finland

“The distillery is based in the heartlands of Finnish Ostrobothnia. The first batch of the whisky won’t be available until 2017, but an initial product called Juuri (Root) is already in production to be used in cocktails. More products will be developed and made in small batch style as the production evolves. The company also has clear-cut plans for entry into the international market, aiming boldly at global metropolises such as London, Berlin, Hong Kong and Tokyo.

This sort of brand evolution meant that the identity needed stand the test of time and changes: it had to be clean, fresh and easy to use still after a couple of years when the first whiskys are matured.”

Citrus Gold

February 10, 2014 | No Comments

Designed by Craig Valentino Design | Country: United States

“During the 2014 holiday season, as per tradition, the home brew of Father & Son Brewing Company was created. This year, the name Citrus Gold was given to this orange golden ale, which of course was named after the sweet notes of Belgian orange peel used in the brewing process.  The idea was to create a label that was as bright, as bold, and as crisp as the the beer itself, allowing it to accurately represent the brew. 

The beer was then bottled using 2 different sizes of swing top bottles and hand-labeled with bright white thick-stock paper. It was then distributed as holiday promotional gifts.”

The Guardians

December 16, 2013 | 2 Comments

Designed by mousegraphics | Country: Greece

“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.”
