Student Work – Caleb Heisey

August 23, 2012 | 9 Comments

Designed by Caleb Heisey | Country: United States

“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.”

    Stunning! When I saw it I shouted “I have to buy it”! Too bad it’s just a student work.

    Really good stuff! Very witty and well-executed. Where did you get the bottles for your project?

    I love the whole concept. Especially how each bottle clearly tells a story and the folk tale is easily recognisable. These bottles would be worth collecting. I’d keep them in my drinks cabinet on display. Well done!
