“Input: Spendrups is in the process of repositioning one of its brands, Mariestads. Mariestads Prima Lager is a super-premium lager with a distinctly bitter taste based on 160 years of brewing traditions. Spendrups asked Neumeister to design the packaging so that it would not only reflect the company’s long tradition of craftsmanship but also appeal to discerning beer drinkers.
Output: The packaging design for the bottle is a seamless fusion of traditional values and contemporary design elements. The retail packaging (4-pack and carton) is used to tell the story of the old brewery and the origins of the beer.
Outcome: Mariestads Prima Lager has been given an ovation by the beer connoisseurs within Swedish news media. Very soon we will know the opinion of the connoisseurs amongst beer consumers.”
