No-Li Brewhouse

August 3, 2012 | 0 Comments

Designed by Riley Cran | Country: United States

“Founded in Spokane Washington in 1993 by Mark Irvin, No-Li Brewhouse is a craft brewery which expanded to bottling in early 2012.

Originally named Northern Lights, I was contacted in Winter 2012 by former Fat Tire strategist Greg Owlsley and former Deschutes Brewery (and craft beer guru) John Bryant, about re-naming the brewery ‘No-Li’, rebranding the company completely, and creating its first bottled brews.

This main company mark references the Spokane Gondola, a series of Tram cars installed for the 1974 World’s Fair, an event of lasting esteem in the city, and something we took much inspiration from.”

Student Work – Dan Moukatel

August 3, 2012 | 2 Comments

Designed by Dan Moukatel | Country: Israel

“This project tests the boundaries between designing and chemical data. During my research on salt, I discovered that the salt that we all are familiar with and use for cooking purposes, actually plays a much bigger and important role in our lives. It turns out that salt is found in almost any chemical element around us in different amounts and dosages.

During the production procedure of table salt in Dead Sea Works, four other chemical elements are being refined: potassium, aluminum, bromine and magnesium, from which we produce all sorts of materials that are of use to us in daily living. In my project, I decided to focus on the four chemical elements and to visualize the changing of the salt in each one of them.”

“Do you speak Scotte? A pro­fes­sional painter uses expres­sions like “Wall 7″ and “Car­pen­try 70″. We have brought their lan­guage into the design concept, mak­ing each and every pack­ag­ing easy to find and use.”

Bristow

July 25, 2012 | 2 Comments

Designed by HOOK | Country: United States

“In exchange for his granddaughter’s hand in marriage, a curious young bloke presented his new grandfather-in-law, Judge, with a bottle of gin. The gin was triple distilled with a curious blend of spices. The Judge was tickled by the gin and insisted his grandson-in-law provide him with a regular allocation of the toothsome spirit. With that encouraging nod, Bristow Gin was born and went on to live most happily ever after.

Carefully made in small batches with eleven botanicals to give the Judge’s gin a clearly unique and satisfying character.”

Papadiablo

July 24, 2012 | 4 Comments

Designed by Sociedad Anónima | Country: Mexico

“The Santanera Group, based in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, produces this ”special” mezcal deep in the heart of Oaxaca.

What makes this mezcal different, is not only its mix of 3 different agaves, but also a dash of Lophophora Williamsii, to spike it up.

The name Papadiablo speaks of duality and introspection and the package design reminds us of an antique medicinal spirit decanter with a rugged embossed texture so that you ”never loose your grip”.”

Cuvée S

July 23, 2012 | 0 Comments

Designed by Olsson Barbieri | Country: Norway

“Cuvée S is a result of a collaboration between Master of Wine Sebastian Bredal and the largest online dating service in Norway, Sukker.no (translates sugar). The goal was to create a product that visualized LOVE in a surprising way with a modern expression.

The visual concept is inspired by Russian Sonia Delaunay´s abstract painting from 1913 and tailored to William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet; one of the most famous love stories. The play was originally staged in Verona, Northern Italy which is also the place where Cuvée S is produced today. The empty areas created between the dialogue are painted with aquarelle and are thought to reflect the tension and pauses between two people who meet for the first time.

The dialogue ends…

Juliet: O think´st thou we shall ever meet again?

Romeo: I doubt it not; and all these woes shall serve For sweet discourses in our time to come”

Via XX Settembre

Designed by Studio Fusentast | Country: Norway

“A family run business from the harbour town of Genova, making and distributing organic food. A pattern with a distinct color scheme inspired by the sea is consistently used on all packaging, making it easy to recognise. The labels are kept simple, yet informative, and the typefaces chosen are inspired by Italian culture. The crest used in the logo and on the packaging is to emphasize the family aspect.”

The Piece

July 20, 2012 | 4 Comments

Designed by Voice | Country: Australia

“‘The Piece’ was born out of the brothers, Mark and Peter Saturno’s love for urban culture, a desire to change the way people think of’ premium wine and to tap into a demographic otherwise neglected by an inherently conservative wine industry. They have set out to create a highly desirable ‘street‐art’ series of wines that blazes a trail away from the expected.

Thus, in a ground breaking move Mark & Peter unveiled ‘Krush Klinic’ – a yearly food and wine event with a street art competition at the centre of the day’s festivities. Four of Australia’s most prominent graffiti artists, were tasked with interpreting the location or philosophy of the vineyard as a 2m X 4m mural. The winning artist has their work adorn Longview’s most prestigious wine.

The inaugural honours went to Vans the Omega with a 360° label design that embraces the aesthetic and various forms of street art, combining the detailed mural of the Vans the Omega with stencils, tags, and paste‐ups. Each bottle of the limited release wine is encased inside a custom made spray‐paint can.”

Ben Sherman EC1 Chino

Designed by Ben Sherman | Country: United Kingdom

“Ben Sherman has made Clerkenwell, EC1 it’s home for the last ten years. We love this little enclave of creativity, nestled between the buzz and bright lights of the West End and the artistic, gentrified but charmingly disheveled and industrial East. This is the reason we are here and why we continue to be inspired.

The EC1 Chino was born out of this area, and as such we decided we’d like to share 200 pairs with our likeminded neighbours.”
