“Sydney’s iconic restaurant, Wildfire asked us to create the labels for their new range of wines sold through the restaurant.
For the designs, we were inspired by the tradition of Venetian Theatre Masks. As with the wines, each mask represented a character, mood and embraced the notion of mystery, joy, fun, playfulness and theatre, fitting of the dining experience at wildfire.
Silver foil stamp and UV varnish helped give the label and extra dimension and life.”

“Supermarkets are expanding their fresh fish offerings to include more sustainable species like gurnard, mackerel and skate. These fish are cheaper and just as tasty, but customers often shy away from them because they are unfamiliar and occasionally just plain ugly.
This fish packaging proposal helps put these fish back on equal standing with their more recognized brethren by placing them in an attractive and highly recognizable packaging solution. The packages are intended for use at fresh fish counters. Constructed from a double layered polyethylene, they are airtight, resealable and can be filled with ice for transport to keep your fish fresh until it hits the pan!”

“SAA were tasked with creating a distinctive packaging solution for the Shepherd & Neame ale classic collection. A collection based on 18th century IPAs which relied on generous hopping to protect exports during arduous journeys, this modern incarnation retains the strength, body and strong hop character which is synonymous with this beer’s provenance.
Harking back to 18th century label design we created typographic executions that also reflected the individual taste and flavour of each ale.”

“Color Mask is a tinting and repairing conditioner for coloured hair. When choosing this kind of product, the colour is, naturally, the most important thing. So why not take all the fun out of it also in the packages?
The packages beautifully and clearly show the colour they’re all about. You feel like a child in a candy shop but without the sugar overdose – even though the packages flirt with colour, the style is simple and clear.”

“King Louis Bier is a young German (Bavarian) beer for young people. Bavaria is one of Germany’s very unique states with strong traditions (“Lederhosen”, “Oktoberfest”, the Alpes mountains, etc.). The historical person of King Louis (“Koenig Ludwig II von Bayern” / King Louis II of Bavaria – last century’s famous Bavarian king) represents this tradition.”

“Folksaga is a Swedish distillery of akvavit, a traditional scandinavian liquor flavored with ingredients such as caraway, anise, or ginger. The concept behind the project was to broaden akvavit’s appeal to an American market while maintaining its rich, nordic roots. Each bottle features a popular folk tale from Sweden. Ranging from murky mermaids to terrible trolls, these mythological characters are always up to no good — preying upon travelers lost in the wild. The project was art directed by Paul Kepple of Headcase Design.”

“More is a premium fruit juice which contains high percentage of real fruit extracts, therefore the name “More” was selected for the brand. The plus (+) icon on the package is used as a symbol to indicate the rich fruit ingredient of More. The plus changes color according to the flavor. White is used all over the package. Plus and white emphasizes the health and triggers the perception of hygene. White is also differentiating the package of More from the other fruit juices on the market shelves and putting it forward. The simplicity of the package is an advantage. Illustrations on the package are effective but not distorting the simplicity.”

“When Wallpaper* Magazine discovered Marou Chocolate, our client, they felt that this singular dark chocolate, hand-crafted in Saigon using purely local ingredients was a perfect match for their third annual Handmade issue (an issue with a focus on unique products combining luxury, craft and inspiration). Marou offered to create a special edition Wallpaper* chocolate bar in time for exhibiting at the 2012 Salone de Mobile in Milan. The packaging we designed for this occasion would stay true to the inspiration behind the standard Marou chocolate bars and press further the attention given to lovingly hand printed details. We strayed some from the traditional motifs of the standard bars to embrace a more modernist approach while incorporating the well known Wallpaper* asterisk mark. It began by creating a new background pattern, which moved away from the traditional lattice and organic elements, replacing them by geometric elements forming an extension of the Wallpaper* asterisk.
The same hand mixed inks and screen-printing methods used on the standard Marou packs were employed, but a new palette of hues would be used, derived from the Wallpaper* handmade seal. The seal even informed a limited edition version of Marou’s Monogram for this occasion. The final touch of hand embossing some of the pack’s design elements set the stage for a fully considered hand crafted piece.”

“Brief: Launched before the cider trend properly exploded onto the New Zealand market, the success of DB’s Crushed Apple Cider soon led to a Pear variant, and the need for a new 12-pack range. The company had a strong offering in place: a premium cider, 100 per cent sourced from New Zealand raw materials instead of the concentrate used by competitors. What it needed was packaging that would vocalize the product’s unique selling point.”
