    ButterflyCannon have rejuvenated the packaging of the No7 Lift & Luminate franchise, following the successful launch of the redesigned anti-ageing serum in 2016. The portfolio takes lead from the hero serum product, extending the same graphic approach to elevate the perception of the range and clearly communicate the new ‘Triple Action’ benefit.

    A refresh and uplift to the core brand colour contemporizes the range, and the satin finish helps to convey the products’ luxury credentials. An iconic graphical device unifies the Lift & Luminate portfolio; recognizable to consumers from the serum launch, the device conveys the science behind the products and the three interconnected droplets represent the triple action concept, the three clinically proven anti-ageing benefits; visibly reduced wrinkles, firmer feeling skin and a more even skin tone in just two weeks.

    The rejuvenated brand aesthetic has also been rolled out on the latest addition to No7’s anti-ageing skincare portfolio; No7 Restore & Renew Face and Neck Multi Action Serum, which has just launched in stores across the UK.

    Just as on the Lift & Luminate franchise, a refreshed colourway and satin finish adds contemporaneity and premiumness, whilst the refined information architecture on the front of pack improves navigation and introduces the attributes of the innovative new formula in a more easily digestible format. To communicate the complimentary nature of the two franchises, the droplet icon created for the Lift & Luminate franchise is also featured, integrating a subtle profile silhouette to highlight the clinically proven benefits to the face and neck area.

    Lara Purcell, Global Brand Director for No7 comments, “The launch of the redesigned Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum was a great success for the No7 brand, and it was a pleasure to work with ButterflyCannon again to bring the new approach to our Restore & Renew franchise.”

    Like the legendary Protect & Perfect serum, the Restore & Renew Face and Neck Multi Action Serum is expected to sell out quickly – when it went on sale last week there were already 10,000 people on the waiting list!

    Client: Humboldt Distillery
    Location: Emeryville, CA, US
    Packaging Contents: Vodka
    Packaging Substrate / Materials: Paper

    Long-time client, Humboldt Distillery, came to us with a desire to create a Cannabis-infused vodka that would be a quality tribute to Northern California’s Emerald Triangle. The product would not feature any of the THC found in marijuana, instead it’s a product made with locally grown hemp that’s a subtle nod to the region’s pot-growing tradition.

    And that subtle nod had to remain subtle. Aside from the usual built-in labeling law limitations that go along with packaging alcohol, federal labeling laws strongly prohibit referencing, or depicting anything related to illegal drugs on alcohol packaging. So, in this case, it meant no pot plants, leaves, reefers, blunts, pipes or bongs — nothing fun.

    The challenge of evoking the essence of the local cannabis culture without any of the typical visual cues led us to go for a subtle hemp burlap sack texture in the background and a cluster of vegetation that “kind of” looked like marijuana plants. The first label version was rejected for stating “Cannabis Vodka” on the brand banner (a completely accurate description for the product), leading us to use “Humboldt’s Finest” on the front label – a reference for those in the know.

    This label is digitally printed on Neenah Packaging’s Estate Label #8 uncoated, pressure sensitive, substrate. It features a multi-level emboss. The first level is the hemp bag background texture; the second is our custom botanical & banner illustration.

    The final package is one that delivers the needed cues and Emerald Triangle spirit, yet still delivers a package that appeals to a wider audience.

    The box is stocked with refreshing flavors ready for a classic Minnesota summer on the beach or in the boathouse. In the pack you will find familiar Summit classics such as the Summer Ale and the Keller Pils, as well as two new faces: the Hefeweizen and Wit Bier.

    The Summit Hefeweizen is an old friend to the Midwest, first being introduced in 2002. Leaving the brewery in 2011, the beer is now back with a new look. The branding of this summer-fresh ale is reminiscent of that quintessential summer moment of throwing a line off a boat. Colors of the can mirror those of a Minnesota day reflecting on the lake.

    Off the lake onto the farm, the Summit Wit Bier connects puffy white clouds to its traditional white ale. Bright tones of yellow and blue create the warmth of a summery Minnesotan day on the farm, although the beer can be enjoyed anywhere.

    Sırma Schorle is delicious mix of natural sparkling water and intense fruit juice. It is a healthy beverage alternative to alcoholic drinks especially for the young ones. Since young people see the bottle they hold as a complementary accessory of their style, a cool design was prepared for Schorle. Finger shaped holding details, which no other competitors have, were added to design. Thus, differentiating, ergonomics and stylish look were obtained. Cool tone was strengthened with black color. For graphics, screen printing was preferred instead of labels, so production costs were decreased. By using luminescent fruit illustrations, visual appeal was increased and intense fruit taste was referred.

    The objective of this project was to pick an item that we thought was lacking design wise. We then had to redesign the entire object including logo, possibly rename, and the packaging into something unique and beautiful. For my object I choose coconut oil, it is becoming a common household product because of it's many uses for cooking and body treatments. Coconut oil is such a lovely pure substance and the packaging of it in stores doesn't show that. Typical store packaging of coconut oil has a photo of a coconut with a very boring type choices and nothing that screams uniqueness or pride in the product. To me the designs look about as generic as a person can think of. I wanted to create a product design that was different and would spark the interest of the buyer. I developed the logo of a Tiki mask for my coconut oil because it is not the typical coconut we usually see but still gives off the tropical feel. The eccentric expression of the mask also helps had interest and visual appeal. I wanted my design to look as natural as possible by using brown ink and a recycled paper with fibers in it that looked like coconut hairs and a glass jar to really showcase the white color of the oil.

    The success and excitement about Tío Pepe En Rama has spread to more markets than ever in 2016. This year the wine will be released in 19 countries, the first being Spain and the UK in the middle of April, quickly followed by Sweden, Finland, Norway, Belgium, Ireland, Mexico, USA; Canada, China, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Germany, Seychelles and South Africa, towards the end of the month.

    Commenting on this year’s wine Antonia Flores, master blender at González Byass, said, “The Tio Pepe En Rama 2016 is sublime; pungent, fresh and very much in the style of traditional Tio Pepe. Sourced from our founding cellars Rebollo and Constancia where year after year we find the most exceptional wines.

    “The mild climate over the past vintage, with an average amount of rainfall and a mild summer has given us a healthy and balanced vintage. A hot July followed by a cool August, thanks to the constant poniente winds, and an almost spring-like winter created great conditions for the flor to flourish. Additionally, the conditions in the González Byass cellars, ideal average temperatures and the absence of warm Levante winds during maturation were key in allowing the flor to maintain its magic cloak over the surface of the wine; strong and solid throughout the year.”

    He continues, “The combined effect of harvesting the grapes from our single estate vineyards Marcharnudo and Carrascal with their pure albariza soils, plus maturation in our century-old cellars and long hours of consideration that were taken to select the final 60 casks fill me with pride, emotion and some satisfaction at the quality of this year’s Tio Pepe En Rama. The wine is the embodiment of what generations of Jerezanos enjoyed before us a pie de bota (at the foot of the cask), the fresh, pure wine that is the essence of Tío Pepe.”

    Flores concludes, “Each year a different, yet authentic hand-drawn label is chosen, the design based on original art work discovered in Tio Pepe’s historical archives. This year is no exception as we are using a splendid label displaying medals from Alfonso XII and the Royal Seal placing us in 1875.”

    González Byass was at the forefront of the category in investing in the launch of Tío Pepe En Rama seven years ago and introducing this pure, unfined and unfiltered Fino to the trade and consumers as another way to enjoy this individual style of sherry.

    Scott Willis started Tequila 512 with an idea and a plane ticket from Austin to Guadalajara. Our collaboration took a similar turn as we searched for the perfect way to brand this smooth finishing tequila.

    Finding the Mark
    After a long Friday spent “blitzing” the future of the Tequila 512 brand, we stopped for a cocktail. Scott casually said, “I’m going to Jalisco on Monday. Y’all should come down.” We took him up on it. The trip influenced our work in a profound way.

    Message on a Bottle
    When we traveled to the La Cofradia Distillery where the tequila is distilled and bottled, we learned that the tequila was made with volcanic spring water. And we were struck by the hand-painted signs on every wall in the town of Tequila. This timeless style of signage is all over Austin, too.

    Especial Delivery
    To launch we sent out 512 boxes of tequila to influencers around Austin.

    This is a branding and packaging design project for an internet only restaurant based in India which provides authentic Indian food from all over the country. The packaging and branding is done mainly focusing the delivery purpose.

    Brief - It is a rebranding of an internet based restaurant “LeapingCaravan”. Leaping Caravan represents the food from The Grand Trunk Road taking you on a journey in myriad hues from Kabul to Kolkata as the caravan travels a distance of 2500 kilometers through Afghanistan, Pakistan, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Bengal.

    But the design of leaping caravan fails to portray the authenticity, affordability fun part of the Indian food which brand wants to portray.

    The new logo is inspired from the standard Indian tiffin which is usually of three compartments representing variety, authenticity and the dabba delivery system as it is an internet only restaurant targeting busy young professionals.

    The visual language of the brand is an amalgamation of different scripts of Indian states - malyalam, bengali, gujarati, tamil, telugu with the specific ingredients of the respective states, played around in positive and negative space.

Each piece is created with “immaculate attention to detail, making certain that not even the smallest component is overlooked.” Driven by individuality and bespoke customisation, BWD is paving the way for expression through accessories, ensuring every single detail in the products they put out are unique and high quality. Including their packaging.

    After an initial meeting with their in house creative, we helped to create packaging for their Heritage range of watches. The packaging had to echo the classic aesthetic of the pieces, whilst also referencing the custom made approach.

    The boxes were made from bespoke anodised aluminium which was machine bent in two halves and then connected together using matching hinges. End caps were made of contrasting gloss varnished beech and then riveted in place. The inserts were produced from routed solid MDF board and covered in textured PU coated papers.

    We finished these beautiful pieces off by branding them with a laser etched logo on the outer, foil blocking on the inside, with a final flourish added in the form of die cast, powder coated medals which were fitted into a custom recess.

    This was a branding project for a gin that was based on my hometown, Seoul, South Korea. The name of the gin (Do K B Gin) incorporates the Korean legendary folklore Dokkaebi. The hand drawn logo expresses the image of the mystical, imaginary and powerful creature. The idea that Dokkaebi has extraordinary mystical powers and abilities when used to interact with humans, at times playing tricks on them and at times helping them, parallels with the powerful yet mischievous energy that gin provides. I took the project farther by creating a deck of trump cards with images and patterns based on my illustrated drawings. I created a pattern and applied it for the casino carpet and the light. The gin and trump cards were first illustrated by hands, printed and crafted.
