“Tomoka is the legendary schooner Captain Bill McCoy used for rum-running, also known as bootlegging, during the time of prohibition. Tomoka was one of the most famous rum-runners and as McCoy became famous for never watering his booze and only selling top brands, Tomoka is often associated with the term “The Real McCoy”. The bottle label tells the story of Captain McCoy and the inspiration behind Tomoka.”

“1hundred is a project that’s been in development over the last 2.5 years. It’s a brand founded by Tom Lane to encourage collaboration with other artists, craftsman, and creators of ‘things’ to produce and sell our own quality products. The idea is based on the premise that less is more. Small production numbers means you get the benefit of limited edition products not every Dom, Dick, and Harry will have and we get to focus our attention on making products with soul, that aren’t just mass-produced. Time and effort is being spent on the details, taking special care to make the products the best they can be. It’s not about making a quick buck, but to produce something really worth having.

“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.”

“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.”

“My goal was to design an innovative package using a small amount of material. It’s made of natural microwaved carton and consists of one piece. The eggs are placed into ellipse-shaped cuts. The eggs are removed by turning the topside.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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 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”

“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.”
