“The project included initial branding concept and logo development through to packaging and website design. The packaging was an important aspect for this start up company, as they were launching with only one product ahead of the Christmas 2012 retail period. The product is a ply-wood Christmas tree, providing an eco friendly, sustainable, and stylish alternative to regular plastic trees. The packaging needed to be strong enough to hold a 7kg wooden product, and ensure that it could be packed away each year after the Christmas period. Our considerations also included the shipping of the product around the world, so it needed to stand up to a bit of ‘rough handling’ in the postal system. The solution chosen was a cardboard carton with carry handle. We utilised a 1-colour print to keep with the companies ‘no-fuss’ ethos, as well as keeping the production under budget. The package clearly displays all important details, with a clear hierarchy of information. The graphic icon which was developed is a prominent representation of the product on the front of the package. The back of the package incorporates a playful element, another important value to the client. This being a silhouette of an axe, so when the package is carried by the handle, the customer appears to be walking away with an axe in hand. This idea played on the nostalgic practice of going out to a forest to cut down your own tree.”

“Vitis Vinifera is the Latin name of the common vine. This wine is produced in a winery in Granada (Spain) owned by a long line of pharmacists in the region.
For the packaging of this product, we wanted to recover the spirit of the old pharmacy. To achieve this, we decided on a bottle covered in a sleeve reminiscent of the traditional ceramic pharmacy jars with a vintage design and an unconventional image and colour for the wine industry. The illustration used as a label is a watercolour.”

“Apinya Thai Chili Sauce is our signature hot sauce inspired by the flavors of Thailand and made with fresh Thai chilies, roasted red peppers, garlic, and ginger.
The creative team designed the overall brand based on extensive research of Thai cultural design elements and existing Thai food packaging. The brief required that the product be quickly visually recognizable, include references to Thai culture, and focus on details to convey a high-quality product. The label artwork was custom illustrated to reflect a “maximal” aesthetic of Thai design while staying visually balanced.
The octopus character is unique, eye-catching, and real octopus pairs well with the hot sauce itself. A clear label was used to actively exploit the texture and bright color of the sauce as part of the design. The octopus’s tentacles showcase the main ingredients and he even has a mouth full of the sauce if you look closely.”

“The Markogianni winery is located in Skilountia of ancient Olympia, in Peloponnese. As the project referred to the creation of labels for four products of the winery (white, rose and red wine and aged ‘tsipouro’), our goal was to create a tetralogy with a common visual identity, a clear vision and strong differentiation from the competition.
Inspiration for the labels came from the four elements of nature (water, earth, air and fire), also inextricably linked with the creation of these spirits. The color of the wines led to the choice of the corresponding symbols, while the high concentration of alcohol in the ‘tsipouro’, led to the assignment of the symbol of fire.”

“Sacone is a small farm located in the Riviera Ligure. It’s a family company that is growing thanks to the great passion of owners and offers high quality products. The Extra Vergine Olive Oil “Cultivar Taggiasca” is probably one of the best olive oils available on the market. The request was to create a packaging that would match the content and to design a “corporate Identity” with a strong image joint to the location and the tradition. The label is made with silk-screen printing in one color and it is done directly on the bottle. This choice, has been made not only by aesthetic issues but also by functional needs. Competitors usually use a paper label that becomes greasy during use. Otherwise the box is made of black cardboard , where the graphic is printed with hot foil, while the logo, manually applied, is made of real wood realized by laser cutting.”
