Designed by Mode Design Group | Country: United States
“New York branding and design agency Mode Design Group has designed a custom, limited edition SKYY Vodka bottle for the 2012 holiday season. The new-to-world bottle decoration includes a flocked baroque velvet pattern adorning the trademark blue bottle, inviting you to touch the supple design. This innovative bottle design is the first flocked bottle to hit the spirits market, and changes the dynamic of how bottle design can be approached. Mode’s groundbreaking design blended the worlds of high fashion and spirits utilizing the baroque themed pattern with a tangible element of sensuous velvet to create an inviting design.
“We incorporated the baroque pattern into the design because over a year ago when we began the process we felt strongly about velvet baroque patterns to connote style and elegance. However, it had never been done before so we had to innovate the technique. Fast forward to launch time for the SKYY holiday bottle, and baroque the biggest trend at all the fashion shows. So while we were planning our bottle, the big fashion houses were thinking the same thing with their clothing lines. Most of the major designers are integrating baroque details into their collections. Adding the velvet texture to the bottle made it sexy, touchable and holiday-appropriate, and fortunately, on-trend.” Says MDG Creative Director Gabrielle Rein.
The bottles hit shelves in October. Proceeds of the bottle sales will benefit the amfAR organization, dedicated to ending the global AIDS epidemic through innovative research.”

“Belgium. Premium. Beer. Those are the three words I had to keep in mind while designing the range.
The aim was to differentiate the brand and packaging from other market competitors as well as clearly communicate and maintain its identity; Premium Belgian beer.
With the understated colour palette throughout the design the colour of beer creates great contrast and stands out.
Not only the material used in the package is lighter, but also more economical than widely used glass, therefore has advantage to both cost and shipping.”

Designed by OOQI Grips | Country: Canada
“We launched OOQI grips in October of 2011, and we were all very excited about our product and our packaging. The packaging looked great and was a very nice as a concept, but ultimately didn’t perform very well in stores; people would just grab the grips and end up accidentally destroying the packaging which was just a 36pt piece of die-cut card stock (try saying that 5 times fast). Once the packaging was destroyed, shop owners would throw them in a bag and put a $30 price tag on them… where they would sell MUCH slower.”

“A Bread Affair approached arithmetic to redesign their packaging to more clearly reﬂect their sense of humour and to re-position their artisan loaves in the organic market place. Arithmetic engaged in consumer research, industry research, consumer testing and produced a positioning strategy that highlighted the distinguishing shopping habits of their consumers.”

“We wanted to see how some non-real brands would look like in the real world, so we started with our favourite: Duff Beer.
For this concept proyect, we focused on the city of Springfield, as the hometown for the Brewery. To emphasize the concept of tradition, we simulated a portrait of Jebediah Springfield.
This is what we think Duff Beer could be in the real world: A Noble Spirit.”

“University brief – Packaging design for a pub game invented by a University tutor. The aim of the game is to draw celebrities using matchsticks (example included – it’s Joan of Arc by the way). The winner is the person who can create their celebrity using the fewest matches. The losers buy the beers.
Match boxes come in 4 hand screen printed colours; black, magenta, turquoise and fluorescent red with a foil blocked match on the front. Box tray made from metallic gold card.
It’s the ultimate pub challenge”

Designed by Milk | Country: New Zealand
“The New Zealand story is not a new one to consumers, but it’s a compelling and evocative differential in a category heavily crowded by imported brands. Health Basics wanted to own that share of shelf, heart and mind by leveraging their authentically New Zealand made provenance.
We were happy to oblige.”
