“A simple and elegant design, where information and ornamental details determine the final outcome. This is exemplified in the illustrations, blind emboss with silver ink, and the paper used.”

The Bottle of Wits

Designed by Helms Workshop | Country: United States

When you leave design school and look for work with your portfolio of fictitious student projects, half of your interviewers pause to tell you that, in the “real world,” you’ll never have the opportunity to design wine packaging. Much less, packaging themed after one of your favorite movies. Those folks never had the chance to work with Tim League and the team at Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas.

In looking at developing an identity for Alamo’s in-house branded wines, we quickly decided that it would be impossible to sum up everything that makes the Alamo unique in a single packaging system. Why not redesign the wine each year, based on a film that aligns with the brand? Alamo’s 2012 offering became two wines inspired by The Princess Bride, in honor of the 25th anniversary of the film.”

What Ever

Designed by CIP Creative | Country: Australia

“What Ever is the wine Medhurst has positioned to be the “relaxed” wine. The message is clear, whatever you eat this summer, tapas, barbeque, Thai, or fresh picnic basket, What Ever is the wine to go with it, What Ever is spicy and fresh, no oaky aroma, chill it if you want, whatever…

The design neatly ties with the symbolic gesture of the “whatever” symbolism.

This is essentially the design brief CIP received from Medhurst Wines and it is potentially the best brief we received – ever!”

Izola Candles

Designed by Aesthetic Movement | Country: United States

“Inspired by the old world utilitarian ideal of making something that is “built to last,” Izola and Aesthetic Movement have curated a collection of whimsical objects with a masculine sense of antiquity.  Made with great care and attention to detail, this series of functional every day staples are designed to be perfect men’s gifts. The products include flasks, soaps, candles, laundry bags, bamboo toothbrushes, handkerchiefs, brass desk objects, shower rings, ceramics and shower curtains.

While the collaboration with Aesthetic Movement began in 2009, Izola was originally founded in 2007 by Neil Rasmus and Richard Brandt as a company that produced innovative shower curtains for big box stores, such as Bed Bath and Beyond.  In 2008 when Jesse James and Diane Shaw formed Aesthetic Movement, a design consultancy and showroom for upper echelon housewares and accessories brands, a partnership with Izola was formed.  Since then, Izola has continued to evolve beyond the bathroom category into barware, desk, travel and other categories.”

Student Work – Niklas Hessman

Designed by Niklas Hessman | Country: Sweden

“Myself and others feel that there is a lack of a premium pringles product line. Therefore I decided to design one. The outcome is a product that will stand out from the other Pringles while retaining the well known tube shape. Simple and clean packaging design that will work in the Scandinavian market.”

Axioma

Designed by Anagrama | Country: Mexico

“Axioma is a new company specialized in skin care products for which we had to create a corporate identity that would reflect the company’s philosophy: Offer the highest quality products made with authentic active substances.

Based on the fact that the effectiveness of each of the products is clinically proven, we chose honesty as the brand’s leading value, therefore, we decided to use the name Axioma, which means “irrefutable truth”.

We developed a clean visual language that would represent the products’ honesty and its clinical purpose. However, the typographic selection was carefully handled so that it would evoke the high-end fashion industry.”

El Libertador

Designed by Diego Ballester | Country: Argentina

“Brand and design in homage of the Great Liberator José de San Martín. The design is inspired by the letters, post and communication of that time.

From the lands of river Plate to Mendoza, from Santiago to genteel Lima, he went, planting laurels along the way in his triumphal journey, San Martín. San Martín, the lord of war, by secret choice of God, was great when the sun was shining on him, and even greater in the sunset. Great father of the Argentine people, greatest hero of freedom! beneath his shadow the fatherland grows in virtue, in work, and in peace.”

“The most popular vodka in Lithuania ‘Lithuanian Vodka’ amazes us all again with their extraordinary design. This time it is the gold-shining limited edition ‘Lithuanian Vodka – Black Edition’, which was introduced 2011 at the end of December. Lithuanian design agency Studija Creata was inspired by Lithuania’s history and national heritage. Rhombus and herringbones, combined from little squares, are very common patterns in Lithuanian folk art. Although reference to these national motifs gained more modern forms – mysterious past reflections were transformed into modern art.”

Catalina Fernandez

February 16, 2012 | 1 Comment

Designed by Anagrama | Country: Mexico

“Catalina Fernandez is your typical home based bakery that started in 1988 and eventually became a successful pastry shop.

Along with the shops growth, came the need to open more branches and to penetrate new generations of potential clients.

When the client approached us, she told us her desire of upgrading the brand to a much more sophisticated style. Based on these requirement we developed a very elegant identity, with a sans serif typeface to keep the brand neutral and give it a chance to evolve in the long run, with new designs for their packaging and other printed pieces.

The various boxes and bags were decorated with details in golden foil that, not unlike Catalina’s pastries were, took many hours of attention to detail.”
