“Award-winning brand design agency Sandstrom Partners announced it has completed a dramatic new package design for Portland-based distillery House Spirits’ flagship product, Aviation Gin, according to Sandstrom president Jack Peterson.

House Spirits is one of the most established and fastest-growing craft-distilleries in the United States, and the company needed to establish its point of differentiation from traditional London Dry Gin.

“Up until now, gin has been a spirit closely associated with the English—London dry gin,” Peterson said. “Aviation is creating the new American Gin experience, downplaying juniper and adding other adventurous botanicals such as cardamom, lavender, Indian sarsaparilla, coriander, anise, and dried sweet orange peel for a more balanced flavor. The bottle and label are designed to strikingly differentiate the brand from the pack in an American way.”

Moonstruck Tumbled Chocolate

Designed by Sandstrom Partners | Country: United States

“Moonstruck Chocolate asked us to help them name and develop a packaging system for a new chocolate covered fruits and nuts product line. Tumbled™ was the name that quickly rose to the top of the naming list and was much improved over the industry standard term of Chocolate Covered. The container study was a long, multi-faceted process which led us to a very unique, custom box shape. Oregon’s Western Meadowlark became a die-cut reveal to showcase the often iridescent coatings of the different tumbled products. Red illustration for dark chocolate and blue illustration for milk chocolate helps discerning consumers find their preference quickly at retail. Also integrated into the packaging design are a beaver, more Western Meadowlarks, a salmon, Mt. Hood, Doug Fir trees and of course, last but not least, a Sasquatch, which can be found on all of the new Moonstruck packaging by Sandstrom Partners. The Sasquatch is hidden in a different location for each flavor of the Tumbled Chocolate packaging line. Cut paper style Illustration by Kate Forrester.”

More great work from Portland based Sandstrom Partners for Moonstruck Chocolatier. Check out some of their past work we’ve showcased here and here.

“Moonstruck Single Origin Peruvian Fortunato No.4 chocolate bar packaging. Moonstruck Chocolate is a Portland, Oregon based company known for making premium handcrafted truffles. This chocolate bar packaging is Moonstruck’s fourth entry into the premium, single origin chocolate bar category. The chocolate itself was described as the ultimate in single origin chocolate, so we needed to create a package that reflected this. Our goal was to create a package that families with the current Moonstruck Single Origin chocolate bar collection but would be notably more premium in look and finish. The illustration and typography continue on in Moonstruck’s now signature hand-cut paper style. The finishes include: Matte Soft-Touch (Metallic Silver areas). Embossed Glossy Diamond-Kote Varnish (White Illustration + Logo). Purple foil (Typography).”

Moonstruck Classic Chocolate Bar

Designed by Sandstrom Partners | Country: United States

“Moonstruck Chocolate Co. is known for making premium handcrafted truffles. Our assignment was to revive a dusty line of chocolate bars. Our goal (and challenge) was to create packaging line that imbues the same qualities that drive Moonstruck brand enthusiasm through its truffles: handcrafted quality, visual beauty, multisensory experience and imagination. We focused the cut-paper style illustration subject matter on Northwest imagery. Specifically the Portland area’s landmark St. Johns Bridge, under which Moonstruck is located. Also integrated into the wrapper design are a beaver, Western Meadowlarks, a salmon, Mt. Hood, Doug Fir trees and of course, last but not least, a partially hidden Sasquatch. We also created 3 unique chocolate bar impressions that are randomly used throughout the entire line in production, so that consumers will have a discoverable to enjoy upon unwrapping.”
