“To celebrate it’s first anniversary, Taft’s Ale House in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati releases Old Wooden Tooth – a limited-edition Russian Imperial Stout that has been aging in bourbon barrels since the ale house opened last year.

Taft’s design shop, 1 Trick Pony, teamed up with the folks at Steinhauser, a family owned custom label printer just across the river in Kentucky that specializes in beer and spirits labels. Each 500mL bottle comes packaged in a custom branded wooden box and features a neck flag and label that are custom printed with 9 colors including a metallic copper ink on a cherry veneer label.”

Designed by Project M+ | Country: United States

“Born of love for her self-proclaimed granola connoisseur husband, Jennifer Sommer’s granola comes from the heart. This salty, sweet, nutty, crunchy treat is genuinely irresistible.

Originally dubbed Obsessed granola, Sommer House gained an early following of foodie aficionados. Obsessed as people were, the name just didn’t ring true. M Plus developed the name and packaging design for Sommer House, synonymous with her own name and her delicious recipe she created in her home kitchen. More than just an epicurean delight, Sommer House embodies a beloved place, the joys summer time, and delights from the inside out.”

Budweiser

Designed by jkr | Country: United States

“People gravitate towards brands that have a unique story to tell, and few have as rich a history as Budweiser. Since 1876, the brand has represented uncompromising quality and relentless ambition, reflected through the craft and care that goes into brewing every beer. Our task was to capture this spirit through design.

Recognising that it was time to align the brand identity with the beer itself, Budweiser partnered with our NYC team to refresh their packaging and visual identity. Starting with an exploration of the brand’s history, we uncovered the depth of Budweiser’s rich iconography. We then sweated the details, working alongside the world’s best to craft each element by hand.

From there, we created two bespoke typefaces to communicate the brand’s principles and a simplified bow tie icon to deliver a more contemporary identity for today’s audience.”

Wrangletown Cider

Taft’s Ale House Old Wooden Tooth

lovely-package-wrangletown-cider-5

Designed by Auston Design Group | Country: United States

“Today, it’s a small quiet Humboldt County community named Freshwater, but around the turn of the century it was better known as Wrangletown. And while Wrangletown was small, it was anything but quiet — miners, loggers, and seven saloons, were the perfect formula to breed public disagreements.

Two of Wrangletown’s most notoriously disagreeable women provide the focal point for this package. The unique town history not only provided the inspiration for the old-west look, it became a prominent element of the packaging.

The proprietary, hand-lettered brandmark and the custom woodcut style illustrations were created to roughly reflect the old west look and feel of print design in the late 1800’s. The use of multiple typefaces also evokes the era, and gives the sense that the printer used every piece of wood-type in his drawer ­— not an uncommon practice back when printers doubled as designers. We think it all adds up to a “sorta refined, kinda classy” package.”

Highlighter

Designed by Pavement | Country: United States

“Designed by Pavement, Highlighter is a brand that differentiates and legitimizes itself from other medical cannabis products with a sophisticated brand approach and elaborate packaging production.

The medical and recreational cannabis market is exploding across the country at a frantic pace. The result is a wide array of package designs, many which reflect fast turn-around production and cluttered, confusing design. Bloom Farms, the parent company for this Highlighter set, wanted to stand out in the marketplace with a sophisticated, and instantly recognizable, brand image that would become the gold standard for this category. Bloom Farms sought a look would not alienate the core “stoner” customer, but the quality of the brand and packaging would allow a mom, for example, to feel comfortable trying this type of product for the first time.”

Union Playing Cards

lovely-package-theory-11-union-cards-3

Designed by Jay Fletcher | Country: United States

“Timeless Americana is laced throughout the design, with iconography of colonial America and patriotic symbols of peace, prosperity, and potential. Unions are Made in America, using FSC-certified paper, vegetable-based inks, and starch-based laminates. Over a year in development, every aspect of the design was created from scratch – from the breathtaking court cards to the back design and Ace of Spades.

As a special edition, Unions are available in a historic Ironside Edition, with a display made of authentic 300-year-old reclaimed wood from the Charles Towne Navy Yard, used in construction of actual ships during the Revolutionary War and War of 1812. Four decks are inset in a special edition plank, branded with the US Constitution across the face.”
