    Brewfist is one of the fastest growing Italian breweries, making contemporary craft beer styles that aim international. They developed a modern lager for the UK market that needed a distinctively Italian look and feel.

    Create a strong name and visual world that immediately links to Italy. The name La Bassa reflects at the same time the Pianura Padana area where Brewfist was born, the bottom fermentation typical of this style of beer, the iconic Presa Bassa (drop bars) on a bicycle's handlebar made famous by cycling hero Marco Pantani. The entire label mimics the popular Gazzetta Dello Sport newspaper, with its iconic pink colour, striking headlines and column layout. The front illustration draws inspiration from the Futurism movement and its concepts of dynamics and modernity.

    The beer and label have immediately impressed the foreign distributors and already opened up new export options in the US, Chinese and Japanese markets along with the UK one.

    Music is a powerful form of expression, which has led many of its genres to the development of truly unique visual identities. The design of the 'Vibes' packaging enables the consumer to express hers and his own unique style when choosing earphones.

    Five artists coming from five music genres were selected (Lady Gaga - pop, Mick Jagger - rock, Iggy Pop - punk,
    Ozzy Osbourne - metal, Snoop Dogg - rap) who are not only iconic representatives of their respective genres but who have also left their mark through their distinct aesthetic and eccentric characteristics of their personality, rendering them 'cult figures' of the music industry.

    The area of their 'eyes' is where the earphones are attached while in their 'mouth' there is a special slot around which the earphones' cord can be wrapped, giving the opportunity to the buyer to continue using the package as a storage box. The 'fun illustration' elements which characterize the different package designs are meant to express each artist's personal musical identity. Lastly, the package is placed in a plastic exterior for its commerical availability.

    The Challenge:
    The LUX Global Team presented WHY Brand Design with a mission: create an inspiring new 3D and 2D pack design for their ‘Plush Shower Fragrance Mousse’, a self foaming body wash. Our brief was clear, we needed to communicate 3 key messages; femininity, premium quality, and indulgent luxury.

    The Solution:
    We knew that the Lux perfumed self-foaming body wash, would be a treat for women making them feels luxuriously soft and pampered and we had to ensure that the packaging gave the same feeling.

    We designed the shape of the bottle to give a bold, impactful yet elegant look. The sleek black design oozes sophistication and the visually striking label immediately signifies exclusivity and luxury.

    We choose the Peony flower pattern because of its deeply lobed petals and large fragrant, flowers. With their lush foliage and full rounded bloom, peonies embody romance and sophistication. It cues the floral explosion releasing a profusion of blossoming flower scents and beauty – and the pleasure that comes with it. This helps create a true feminine experience which lasts not only during the shower but long after.

    For this range Lux partnered with world-class perfumers, Violet Ghaemi, Stefangus Agung Nugroho, Francois Raphael Balestra and Odlle Bongi, who customized five unique luxurious scents, one for each of the five variants using the finest ingredients.

    The Final Product
    We at WHY Brand Design believe we have created an elegant, sophisticated and feminine design in the ‘Plush Shower Fragrance Mousse’ that will perfectly compliment Lux‘s brand positioning of fine fragrance; developed a pack design that will appeal to existing and new consumers looking for a lavish experience; and successfully differentiated from the core range by creating a premium look and successfully differentiated across variants.

    Premier Direct Trade Coffee Purveyor Unveils Redesign

    Today, North American direct-trade coffee company, 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters, has unveiled a new brand mark as well as a wholesale and retail-facing redesign, ranging from bags to labels and mugs to cups.

    A year-long collaborative process between 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters and designer Roger Dario (Google, Cartoon Network, Bench), the redesign is an update of the brand’s clean and consistent look that marks its evolution from a popular regional direct-trade coffee purveyor to a North America-wide brand, available from coast to coast in both the United States and Canada.

    “Our main goal was a cleaner line art style to highlight the ‘49’ in our name — which refers to the longest unguarded border in the world, between Canada and the United States,” says 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters founder, Vince Piccolo. “We wanted to recognize and capitalize on our ongoing expansions on both sides of that line and so we chose a straightforward, mercantile look for our primary mark.”

    “In designing the bag we wanted the packaging to look contained, like everything was in it's right spot,” Piccolo continues. Label placement and vertical running text create a frame space around the primary mark and that same concept is used on the back of the bag as well, to create a unified whole.

    “However, when it came to redesigning our mugs, we wanted something more playful,” Piccolo says. “The new diamond branding captures the excitement and beauty of the coffee farms and grower families we partner with to produce our coffee.”

    On the new mugs, available for sale online and in partner cafés across North America, coffee beans and coffee leaves create a floral pattern against 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters' signature blue background. “The blue wasn’t going to change,” says Piccolo. “That was the colour of my first Bianchi bicycle and will always be a part of the brand.”

    Redesigned bags, cups and mugs are currently available at select café and restaurant partners and online, and will continue to be rolled out in the coming months.

    Our first meeting with the guys from Wiltshire Chilli Farm was on a garden bench in a field of poly-tunnels with the wondrous variety of the fruits of their business growing within. Their passion for their products from source to sauce was immediately apparent.

    The ‘Fearless Flavour’ brand essence we created was borne out of their search for new chilli varieties and their ambition to use, experiment and innovate with these to create new products to add to their ever-growing portfolio. The Wiltshire Chilli Farm recipes range from sweet to spicy to smoky to fruity and from a ‘heat’ perspective from mild to wild not just eye-wateringly hot.

    Referencing the symbolic nature of a super hero badge the chilli ‘W’ icon heros the core of their business and represents the fearlessness of Wiltshire Chilli Farm’s approach to chillies and their products.

    This is graphically supported with a utilitarian, hero—agency documentation feel across the labels and outer packaging.

    On additional marketing materials we used graphic, comic book style illustrations of the products and for new product launches we created super-hero teaser posters to build intrigue and excitement.

    The brief was to create a more cost effective, environmentally conscious and visually appealing alternative to the existing package.

    To answer this, I used corrugated cardboard to replace metal, plastic and other material excesses. This employs creative folding, scoring and etching techniques to showcase the final design solution. Sealing wax and organic cotton threads further support an environmental conscious outcome.

    There is no printing involved however the boxes can adapt to more conventional finishing and folding practices, such as printing rather than etching and folding rather than scoring.

    For VIRGINIE T., her own brand of exceptional mature vintages, Virginie Taittinger was looking for a visual identity and packaging that would be consistent with the two key values of her House:

    Innovation - which is reflected both in the way the champagne is made and in its exclusive distribution via the website of the brand. Traditional ancestral know-how - which is so specific to great champagnes

    Classical motifs in a Second Empire style have been livened up by bright colours that reflect the modernity of the packaging innovation: a case that turns into a champagne bucket and can hold chilled water for several hours. Thanks to thermochromic ink, the VIRGINIE T. marking at the back of the bottle changes from white to red when the ideal serving temperature of 8°C is reached.

    Location: Costa Mesa, CA, USA

    Before production of View From A Blue Moon (an action sports film starring John Florence) began, we knew that a print piece would be just as critical to the project’s success as the film. A plan was developed to have photographers on hand to meticulously document every moment of the production process. Between these photographers, John Florence’s personal images, and terabytes of 4K footage to pull framegrabs from, there’d be more than enough visual content to create the in-depth documentation of the three-year project.

    When production wrapped, nearly 50,000 images were cataloged. After three rounds of photo editing, we got the image selects down to a much more manageable amount: 2,000. These selects ranged from decades-old family photos to RED framegrabs shot from helicopters flying over desolate stretches of African coastline. We then collaborated with CR Stecyk III and the Hurley team to craft the written content, which ranges from unguarded interviews with the cast and crew to long-form essays.

    It was crucial that the book and film felt like extensions of one another. For the look and feel, we extended the black-on-black aesthetic common throughout the film’s branding and focused on specialized printing techniques to instill a perception of understated sophistication. The book’s content structure mirrors the film, with each chapter identified by its starting timecode of hours, minutes, seconds, and frames.

    The entire book production process, from concept to final product in hand, was nine months. We had countless internal rounds of design and editing before presenting the nearly-final product to John Florence, Blake Vincent Kueny (the Director), and the Hurley team. From there we made our finishing touches before working closely with the factory to move into production. The final product is something that we hope exists on a bookshelf for years to come.

    Packaging Materials: Plastic Jar

    The purpose of this rebrand was to elevate Peter Pan, an American peanut butter staple since 1920, beyond its food safety transgressions for good. Though the brand's issues occurred almost a decade ago, the Peter Pan website still makes direct reference to them on it's homepage and many grocery chains have yet to place their products back on shelves.

    And so an effort was made to revamp the brand, implementing a hand lettered style in the logo that triggers both nostalgia and modernity. The succinct icon system uses recognizable shapes from the classic Disney film, which Peter Pan Peanut Butter has made direct connections with. Like the never-ending feud between Captain Hook and Peter, playful type illustrates the dichotomy of the brand's world and allows the labels to dive deeper into the timeless magic of Peter Pan. This depth can also be seen in each label's layers, from the active silhouettes above the logo to the shadowed scenes running along the packaging's bottom edge.

    Olive oil is the perfect representative of an entire culture. In Italy, oil can change from region to region, from town to town and from hill to hill. There is no thing like an “Italian oil”, as every farmer produces his own and does it in a peculiar, recognizable way.

    The one from Le Selezioni de La Bottega is among the most intense and flavourful Tuscan oils.

    Tasted and chosen directly by Michelin-starred Chefs Gasbarro and Airaudo, it needed the same care as any other part of La Bottega affair.

    Sold in elegant and minimalistic tubes, it can be bought exclusively at the Restaurants and is used on daily basis as dressing or as tasting device.
