“R&B Brewing is one of Vancouver’s original East Van micro breweries, predating the current trend by almost two decades. Partners Rick (“R”) and Barry (“B”) asked St. Bernadine to help with a packaging redesign, initiated by the move from 650mL bottles to a standard 341mL 6-pack format.
The design language is inspired by R&B’s resolutely hand crafted product – as such, every element on the packaging is rendered by hand, including the bar code. Bold silhouette key illustrations take their cues from the beers’ quirky naming conventions, and strong colours aid standout and shelf blocking. Key brand story elements, hand rendered in expressive type, and additional varietal information, like IBU scale, boil information, aging temperature, hop and barley type and mix all support R&B’s independent, craft positioning.”

“The branding consists of a strong, yet organic and versatile logo that transforms each time into a unique shape, without losing the brand’s identity, to convey the essence of the basic ingredient: a hexagon for the honey-based “Rakomelo”, a cross for the monastic “Herb Spirit”, a circle for the cinnamon-based “Tentura” and a rhombus for the “Mastiha”. All for one and one for all.”

“Collectively 8 people were involved in the production of these boxes. Main contributors included a carpenter, digital printers, a wood routing specialist, engravers and myself. All of the contributors were supplied with concise instructions and illustrations, with a focus on their area of the process. It was important that certain stages of the construction were done prior to assemblage, for instance; the branding cut out and engraving on the bottom end of the box had to be completed before the panels were put together, otherwise the box wouldn’t fit into the engraving bed. Likewise the sanding of the boxes happened before engraving so the marks were not stripped.
The similar tones of the corrugated card and pine complement each other while the high gloss of the acrylic band emphasizes the elegance of the brands expensive nature. The logos symbol is a stylization of the upper leg in profile, starting from knee joint and finishing at the Gluteus Maximus. The name ‘one percent’ references two topics, the first meaning; when exercising our body perspiration is made up of 99% water and 1% solute. Secondly ‘once percent’ represents exclusivity, targeting the brands high end audience. RBNo3.1 was the selected typeface. Its highly geometric form grounds the logo while movement is created when italic.”

Designed by Equator Design | Country: Australia
“In the run up to the summer (in Australia), Equator Design’s beer was a small production run of home brew style Pale Ale which we brewed ourselves in our Sydney Office to distribute to our clients. The objective of the beer was to create a beer that not only encapsulated everything that we as an agency are about but to ‘create an impression’ with our current and prospect clients. We decided to do just that with the labels, deboss them to ‘create an impression’ on the thick stock through a local printing firm’s letterpress machine.
The bottle case’s were lovingly crafted by our very own Studio Manager (Master Brewer), Peter Bradley who is a genius when it comes to making anything from native Australian wood. He spent weeks producing a number of boxes which in turn created massive impact when they were distributed to our clients.
So many of our client briefs of recent are requiring us to engage the ‘five senses’ when defining our creative approach to the design briefs. Tactility or touch was key to this self initiated brief and the label demonstrates that the sense of touch is also vital when considering the path to purchase for consumers. Executed well tactility can add perceived value and indeed add to the overall brand experience.
The 5% Pale Ale is perfect for a late spring session anticipating the warm summer months just around the corner…”

“With Celiac disease affecting at least 1 in 100 Americans, many beer drinkers are forced to pass up their favorite beverage due to dietary restrictions. To address this problem, Craft Brew Alliance approached brand design firm Hornall Anderson to help them launch Omission—the first craft beer brand in the U.S. focused exclusively on brewing great tasting beer with traditional beer ingredients—including malted barley—specially crafted to remove gluten.
Playing off of Omission’s messaging, the Hornall Anderson creative team developed the tagline, “it isn’t just what we took out; it’s what we left in.” They then designed tongue-in-cheek illustrations that reflect the “removal of gluten” (or in the case of the on-pack design, removing the “O” to reveal the word “mission”) without omitting great taste. This is whimsically demonstrated by enlisting a variety of vehicles such as a UFO, bird, helicopter, hot airballoon, magnet, and magic wand.”

“As a former graphic designer and teacher of graphic design, I figured this would be a short and simple journey—one that I could handle solo. That was a year ago.
Even though I had done package design before, I quickly decided I was under-qualified to do my honey package design. This occurred to me when my nephew’s girlfriend gave me a candle gift so uniquely packaged that I had to call the candle company and ask for the designer’s name.”

“NOLA’S is a local startup fresh foods company. MDG was tasked with creating an original brand image & identity for NOLA’S. Our client had a vision, “Think June Cleaver meets a Vargas pin-up.” That in mind, we worked with illustrator Mark Stutzman to craft the face of the brand, the lovely Ms. Nola. From there, we created an original logo mark and packaging concept and NOLA’S Fresh Foods was off. In select stores now!”
