Student Work – Hilary Sloane

“To give my packaging a premium look and interesting background story, I have used Oscar Wilde as the company’s identity, as he instantly communicates elegance and good taste. Oscar Wilde is undeniably the most brilliant and savvy writer of the 19th century and was also a renowned drinker of gin. This premium London Dry Gin has been created in honour of Oscar, one who appreciated the finer things in life. The packaging concept is featured around a quote by Wilde – “We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars”. This is illustrated visually through layers and the unique glass which in a certain light has the distinct appearance of a starry night sky.”

    As it just so happens I am in the midst of reading “The picture of Dorian Grey”, and am a fellow design student. I have to say I simply love the different layers and the texture they create. The typography in my opinion gets a little overshadowed by the image, though- wouldn’t it have been better in white?
    Other than that- beautiful work. Good luck!

    Wow, it looks stunning!
    the font in white would be better, i think. but white color isn’t easy to get, as a student.

    Good work, Hilary!
    Would love to get in contact with you.

    Moran: Thanks for the kind words, I am with you on the white type, unfortunately I didn’t have enough time or money to make it happen.

    Ralf J: Thanks! Here is my website with some more of my work and contact details:
