Snake + Herring

Designed brainCELLS | Country: Australia

“When Snake (Winemaker) and Herring (Wine Purveyor) approached braincells to launch their new wine project in early 2011, they wanted to do something different. Armed with a clear mission statement, they set out to create a wine package that would stand out from the crowd.

The label captures Snake and Herring flying in a grape balloon across the West Australian landscape searching for wines of exceptional quality. The full bleed illustration is highly detailed with a storybook quality to the finish. The top tier wine label is more refined, focusing on the balloon itself. The label is embellished with coloured foil, hi-build varnish and two detailed silk screens.”

The Handshake

The Handshake

The Handshake

Designed brainCELLS | Country: Australia

“In 2010 brianCELLS designed a new series of wine labels for a well respected West Australian Liquor merchant, Liquor Barons.

As the label describes, ‘The handshake is an in-house program of the Liquor Barons Co-operative. We seek out quality wine from renowned vineyards and submit for judgement to our distinguished panel. Culling many that don’t make the grade, we only bottle what is agreed to be exceptional value for money. We hope you enjoy our ongoing selections.’

The handshake concept is re-enforced through the use of a minimal typographic front label that wraps around the bottle to reveal two hands about to shake with each other. Thus, rewarding customers who pick up the bottle off the shelf.”

Graci

Designed by brainCELLS | Country: Australia

“Harvey River Bridge Estate approached brainCELLS in early 2010 to work on a new premium cider range called Graci. Harvey Fresh are well known for their quality fruit so a range of cider with apple, pear and grape varieties seemed like a wise investment. The packaging of the cider reflects the tradition and heritage of the Harvey orchards that have been operating for many decades in Western Australia. The traditional look was achieved with a scraperboard illustration and a visual palette of dusty colours and vintage typefaces. The result is a cider package that will attract both experienced and in-experienced cider drinkers over the summer months. Graci is now available in liquor outlets across Australia.”
