Designed by Sociedad Anónima | Country: Mexico

“Moonshine was the name given to illegally distilled whiskey during the US Prohibition, among this time, production was carried out at night, under the moon’s rays. Juan Montaña is a Mexican distilled liquor which represents the southern US., made out of natural products such as water, yeast, corn kernels and barley. Its branding, packaging and graphic language are inspired by the story of a typical old hermitliving in the southern US Mountains, represented with a vintage ilustration at the top of the label. We chose to merge a rustic style with spare printing techniques to create a fresh design, combined with old fashioned elements to reflect the natural essence of the product. The result is a label with a vintage and raw look that give it a handmade feel.”

Designed by Sociedad Anónima | Country: Mexico

“Caralarga is a Mexican jewelry design firm. This project included the creation of visual identity and the design of the packaging. The brand concept was inspired and based by the work of Native Americans, trying to communicate this idea through the icon in the logo, which is a tepee that represents the two capital letters of the designer and founder of the brand: Ana Holschinder. We chose to work with a bright and vibrant color palette, combined with a modern sans serif font, which would reflect the energy of the brand. The result is a simple, yet unique, clean and bold packaging printed in full color and matte coated, using a geometric shape printed over half the surface of the box  to give a particular and friendly look.”

Designed by Anagrama | Country: Mexico

“La Cervecería de Colima” is a new Mexican brewery located in the town of “El Trapiche” in the state of Colima in Mexico. The brewery dedicates all its hard work into perfecting its three unique handcrafted beers for international sale and distribution.

Our branding proposal is a modern visual translation of every distinguished traditional element from Colima and its surroundings, such as its magnificent local Colima volcano. We developed a friendly, simple-looking brand that honours the human touch and workmanship behind every product.

Three craft beers were brewed to mark the beginning of the brand’s legacy. First, the main one: Colimita, the beer from the earth and favorite of the sun. Second, Páramo, a Pale Ale inspired by the whisperings in the streets of Comala. And finally, Ticús, relative of the crow, Cervecería de Colima’s dark beer. From light to dark labels and bright colored caps, the bottles’ design resemble the uniqueness and the hard work behind each individual brew.”

“Local legend tells that a small incandescent rock fell near the town’s mezcal maker’s home, creating an ideal earthen pit oven, in which he roasted his agave hearts, and created the best mezcal in the region. “How did you do it?” They asked him. The old man simply replied: “It fell from the sky…”

Viejo Indecente

Designed by YuJo! Creatividad Aplicada | Country: Mexico

“We all have a dark side. It may remain hidden most of the time, but every once in a while, a glimpse of our other selves cannot be denied. 

Viejo Indecente opens the door to that other you. Is someone peeking through the keyhole or is it you who is looking into the forbidden? 

With a transparent spirit and bottle, we made the keyhole real by printing the eye in the back and letting an alpha circle in the upper part of the front label. 

Either by holding the bottle with both hands o rotating it over the table, this mysterious character’s eye comes to life and follows you as you fight with your inner, darker self.”

Bonnard

Designed by Anagrama | Country: Mexico

“Bonnard is a Mexican french-inspired tea and confectionary shop.

The brand’s distinct brush strokes and color selection are based on Pierre Bonnard’s postimpressionist paintings. The simple art direction, together with french words and phonetics round up the brand’s gallic concept effortlessly, spontaneously and efficiently.

Our approach with clean, sans-serif typography gives Bonnard a luxurious feel mostly associated with high-end fashion brands.The gold foil stamp and clean type directly contrasts and at the same time elevates the would-be informal paint marks.

The rounded cross icon detail found in the wording relates to the shapes of macaroons, one of Bonnard’s prime delicacies.”

La Michoacana

Designed by Parallel | Country: Mexico

“La Michoacana is a traditional Mexican “paleteria” wich has been in the market for a long time now. During this period, the brand has suffered a constant changing on its corporate identity caused by the non attendance to its marketing, leading to a misunderstanding of the brands core. We decided to change the concept by using a new packaging system focused on the substrate and product speech. This will lead to a more natural feel of the product, being able to see it and almost taste it by its natural colors and textures. The logotype was re-designed to make it modern and adjust some old aspects of the first logotype. We decided to conserve the rounded shape and the rounded typography making it more playful and fun. Using just the traditional “rosa mexicano” we designed a vibrant but sophisticated color palette, leading to a more specific target; a traditional brand adjusted to modern times.”
