Mysterium Wine


Brilliant! – Mysterium wine packaging designed by Ion Barbu, a graphic designer from Romania.

The Mysterium Wine is limited concept wine designed to address a market segment well known for its general distrust and disinterest towards the wine products: the night clubs/lounge bars arena.

The name of the collection comes from the fact that each Mysterium wine is actually a “coupage”, a blend made from up to three hand-picked grape varieties which makes every composition unique and the origin of their taste mysterious. The packaging had to standout among the much shinier presence of beer, liqueurs and other spirits, therefore I have chosen to deploy creatively a huge amount of hotfoil which has a ”micro-emboss” treatment so its shininess gets a little opaque but its texture still burns even in low-key illuminated places. The word “Mysterium” has also an UV treatment so that it actually shines with an electric, blue color when exposed to ultraviolet light.





Villalta Ripasso


Villalta Ripasso packaging by OlssønBarbieri.

Hierarchy of Villalta Ripasso prioritized to communicate the Ripasso method, the origin (Valpolicella) and excellence in handcrafts associated to this quality wine.

The portrait of Flora (from 1515) attributed to Bartolomeo Veneto was chosen as a representative image for Villalta Ripasso. Both the origin and the elegance and generosity of the wine was successfully conveyed. The details and sophisticated execution where not the only positive connotations: the charming and gentle gesture holding the bouquet became a strong element to link the wine to the brandname, and the hypnotic eyes of Flora, rumored to be a courtesan, an overall mystic presence on the shelf.
The use of hot foil is enhancing the premium look and allows us to have the painting going around the box while maintaining readability.

Roots designed by Bob Studio. Nice.

The branding consists of a strong, yet organic and versatile logo that transforms each time into a unique shape, without losing the brand’s identity, to convey the essence of the basic ingredient: a hexagon for the honey-based “Rakomelo”, a cross for the monastic “Herb Spirit”, a circle for the cinnamon-based “Tentura” and a rhombus for the “Mastiha”. All for one and one for all.

Revel Stoke Spiced


Designed by Mono for Revel Stoke Whisky.

When you’re the first of your kind, it’s hard to find your place. That was the challenge facing Revel Stoke, the original spiced whisky. It was collecting dust where it didn’t belong — on the old-school whisky and spiced rum shelves. So mono set out to rebrand the Rev and define a new market segment. A place between young and old. Where skirt-chasing pirates aren’t welcome and a manufactured history has nothing to do with having fun today. We simply asked people to stoke the moment, wherever that moment may be.

New attitude calls for a new look. So mono created an identity that didn’t get lost at the liquor store. It stood out and stood alone. Each bottle has a Stoke The Moment manifesto, further separating Revel Stoke from the silly and the old, inviting revelers to create fun wherever they are.

Gippsland Wine Company


Gorgeous packaging by Picturelab, Australia.

GWC apporached Picturelab to design a series of wine labels and relised that a strong brand is what the company needed. So with a slight alteration to the creative brief, a brand and labels were developed concurrently. The result is a seamless suite of branded items that help the small company punch about its weight in terms of brand awareness. The label approach was to tell the story of the estate through each varietal. From the colony of Black Cockatoos for the Shiraz, through to the Pinot Rosé label with red roses that lined the main building planted there by the first owner.

Bête & Fête


Beautiful work from lg2.

The design for the event and invitation was inspired by a butcher shop environment—meat ticket, kraft paper and apron. It placed the animal at the heart of the concept, making it the true star of the event. The entire concept was graced with a touch of elegance to play up the nobility of pork meat. The dishes created for the event were tasty, high quality, modern and creative.








Some beautiful packaging from Tres Tipos Gráficos, a graphic design studio founded in Madrid.

The goal was to emphasize the product’s Caribbean roots by stamping its name “Contrabando” (meaning smuggling in spanish) forcefully over the traditional graphic imagery, as if local customs had busted an original foreign product.







Hudson Made Worker’s Soap


Lovely packaging for Hudson Made Worker’s Soap by Hovard Design.

Hudson Made packaging references a time in history when every item was individually boxed and packed by hand upon production. Hand wrapped and string tied with a lead seal, each soap is securely protected and unique. The incorporation of traditional printing and letterpress typography on sustainable paper creates a valued product presentation.

All of Hudson Made’s packaging is manufactured locally and meticulously selected for a truly regional product. The typography itself is balanced between contemporary simplicity and the heritage implied by nineteenth-century design.

TINE Melkerampa


Great work from Torjan Rood Vastveit.

The traditional meets the modern in a symbiosis of visual identity and interior design.

The central element of the Melkerampa store concept came to be “Hjemme hos TINE”, reflecting the experience of coming home to a friend who always has a spare chair at the kitchen table with coffee on the stove. The long table acts as the centerpiece to the store, inviting visitors to take a rest in between shopping. The informative design on the cheese signs on the shelves is reflected in the digital solution and takes on the task of informing about the brand to new generations.










Crafty Beggars

Screen shot 2012-11-15 at 21.54.51

Crafty Beggars designed by Curious Design.

When a rogue crew of 9 brewers came together and created the finest beers known to man, they turned to Curious to bring their vision to life. Thus Crafty Beggars was born. The understated packaging design reflects all of the values of this ’rogue council of brewers’-honesty, a sense of humour and a desire to make a craft beer that you can actually drink! But don’t just take our word for that, crack open a Wheat As, Good as Gold or a Pale & Interesting-and do your tastebuds a favour. They’re crafty, but not too crafty.

Sauvie’s Hard Cherry Packaging by Orion Janeczek


Sauvie’s Hard Cherry packaging by Orion Janeczek.

This is the first generation of a self initiated packaging project. I was inspired by Sauvie Island, a small agricultural community ten miles north of Portland. The island is predominantly farmland and wildlife refuge and is a popular place for harvesting fruit among craft brewers. I wanted to create an identity that would embody the spirit of craftsmanship in independent brewing and reflect the quality of handmade goods. The type driven design is simple and straight forward.

JoJo Coffee Cup


Ethically minded, Joco are all about equal amounts of substance and style. They care for your coffee as much as Mother Earth, and believe that environmentally safe materials combined with smart design are the best reasons to drink from their cups over plastic alternatives. Joco’s packaging follows the eco-mindset of their glass cups. Their packaging has been designed to be reused and can be posted as a mail tube. Yes! Designed by Jimmy Gleeson.

Hold and Hollo


Great stuff. Hold and Hollo designed by Örsi Juhász & Gerg? Kovács.

Labels are widely used in trade and the default function is to display info about the product while also raising awareness by looking attractive, and creating a mood. For the large part labels are made of paper and the inclusion of colour, typography, images and so on combine to create the more complex function of a label. We would therefore like to create a label which combines the basic function with the extra functions. The silicone label is more attractive and has a tactile appeal. The label is easily removable and can even be returned for reusing or the inside surface of the label can be used to write on if one so wishes.

Crossover Festival Branding


Crossover Festival Branding by Jonathan Finch & Stephanie Oglesby.

We have proposed that the festival would entail inviting creative practitioners from various fields and disciplines to collaborate and ‘crossover’ to create a piece of work that they wouldn’t normally. Thus, we named the project the ‘Crossover Festival’. The name appears in various forms across the identity, with it being shortened to ‘x-over’ and then a pattern which adapts across the different resolutions. Black, white, grey and salmon form the core colour scheme with a screen-printed, neon spot colour overlaid. The printed collateral consists of promotional posters, a festival guide publication, event timetable, tickets, wristbands and lanyards. Finally, t-shirts and tote bags were also produced whilst we mocked up examples of the exhibition space.
