    Casa Botran, the traditional Guatemalan Rum house, wanted to celebrate its 75th anniversary with the world, highlighting its history and passion for blending and crafting the most refined Rum with an exclusive new product.

    Botran wanted this NPD to be in itself an invitation to co-creation, a tribute to bartenders and the world of mixology, empowering consumers to make the final decision on their perfect drink and allowing them to emulate mixologists in doing so.

    Botran & Co obtains its complex qualities by means of passage through different casks: white oak casks that had been used for American Whisky, toasted casks, and casks in which had been used to age Sherries, ports and fine South American wines, a solid know-how that needed to be highlighted in our design approach.

    “We understand that Casa Botran is the first rum maker to release a product that allows the consumers to define the flavor profile of the rum in such a customizable way. Therefore, our creative team was thrilled to bring this ritual concept to life by developing a solution that highlights the heritage as well as the contemporary vision of the company in producing refined aged rums. It’s a unique journey, immersing the consumers into the magical art of mixology” – says Joao Paulo Oliveira, Appartement 103’s Head of Business Development

    The crude wooden box contains a 50cl rum bottle that was carefully selected to evoke the craft and preciosity perception of the product, which comes from the family’s private reserve and has been aged for up to 30 years.

    The 2 mini 5cl bottles, containing Spiced Rums and Citrus Rum, have been especially designed to compliment the main product, offering consumers with not only an exceptional product, but also the opportunity to explore different tastes by mixing them with Botran & Co. In order to do so, a pipette and an explanatory leaflet have been designed to complete this fabulous set.

    “The design is unique and boosts refined detailing. The elegance of the deep dark purple paper allowed us to contrast an exceptional work of gold hot foil typography, expressing the legendary know-how of Casa Botran. The carefully designed embossed stamp on the label, the organic selected paper, as well as the hand drawing screened typeface on the glass, reinforce the long history of the company, ensuring the heritage and quality perception of the brand. The Casa Botran’s shield was placed on the right side of the label, endorsing the product with confidence through a gold hot foil stamp, triggering the consumer's curiosity to turn the bottle around and discover it as a whole” – says Marc Savary, Appartement 103’s Creative Director

    In details, you will discover and exceptional work of printing techniques, boosting hot foil detailing, embossing and varnish, textures and screening, offering to the final presentation a real tactile experience and superb hand-crafting VS modernity balance.

    Botran & Co was officially launched on the 30th September during Casa Botran’s 75th Anniversary special party at the Casino de Madrid, an offer that becomes even more desirable as it was produced in a limited series of 9.972 units.

    Project Type: Concept
    Location: Chicago, USA
    Packaging Contents: Iced snack

    “빙수터” (Bingsuteo), which can be translated as bingsu playground is a fictional Korean café that sprouted from my love for patbingsu, a Korean ice dessert. To reflect the Korean culture and its historical roots, I drew inspiration from vintage photographs and traditional Korean architecture. The collages are made from the photographs that I took while I was in Korea, which I have manipulated through both traditional and digital methods. On these rustic textures, I incorporated clean, minimalistic aesthetic to add a hint of modernity to the brand.

    The logo is in Korean Hangul, a custom typeface that I designed. The subtle flares on the type add playfulness that contrast with the overall calm and minimal design.

    To add variety to the packaging design, I came up with main categories & flavors of bingsu, including rice cakes, fruits and indulgence snacks such as chocolate. Each packaging has a unique seal inspired by the traditional symbols in Korean architecture.

    What's Unique?
    What is unique about the design is that it is a blend of western and asian aesthetics that is born out of my own experience as a Korean born designer working in the states. While researching for various packaging designs for food, I realized that it was rare to find a concept dedicated to popular Korean snacks. Hence, I decided to design one myself, with hopes of spreading the beauty that is within Korean culture & cuisine.

    This project for 100 Hectares, is a new wine release - collection/red- and this should be, at this moment the top wine from this producer.

    Based on the map we decided to continue using black on the background but this time without using ink to print the map. The design process of the map became a cool and interesting idea not also for this project but also gave us ideas and directions for next releases of this client.

    What's Unique?
    This project is unique due to is printing process in order to obtain the gray (3 machine passages) and the work whit the map that is on the background's label.. in order to obtain a better relief, we decided do give it in two different directions to obtain better contrast and definition. The map (an heritage from other wine references of this producer) was just a reference because it was completely redesigned, using different line patterns.

    YILI Limited Edition Packaging: Feel the Nature Design: Brandimage (Singapore)

    Brandimage, a global consultancy of brand equity architects and designers, designed influential packaging that made Danone’s Yili, China’s number one water brand. Consumers across China recently voted on 10brandchina for the country’s top brands and Yili won top mineral water.

    Yili, a bottled mineral water that is sourced from Guangdong, asked Brandimage to create limited edition packaging that would elevate the current bottle design, reflect its local heritage and attract a younger demographic.

    "The inspiration behind the Yili bottle design was Guangdong itself. Our strategy, Follow the Rhythm of Nature, comes from the natural beauty of China’s 24 annual solar seasons. We created a series of 24 bottles each featuring local flora from Guangdong. The designs, which launch in sets of four, are in three unique seasonal categories – feel the nature, engage the nature and harvest the nature. We are very proud of both the concept and the work”, said Steve McGinnes, managing director Brandimage Asia.

    With shrink-wrap the only feasible packaging option, Brandimage used the bottles’ full transparency so that the ethereal plant and flower illustrations effortlessly float across the bottles and appear one with the water. The brand mark is seamlessly incorporated into the packaging, allowing the vibrant colors to take center stage. The result is premium water bottle designs that celebrate mother nature and instill pride in a local population.

    “Brandimage captured the beauty of Guangdong nature in a very meaningful way, as well as captured the hearts of local consumers. The team partnered with us to deliver above and beyond the brief, inspiring us with a unique approach to the project. I look forward to continued success for Yili as we roll out the remaining designs," said Sylphia Wang, associate marketing director of Danone Waters China.

    Following the two Yili waves that have already launched, 16 additional designs, proudly celebrating Guangdong’s many seasons will roll out in the coming months.

    Bakoma - present on the market since 1989 - is leading yoghurt producer in Poland. I made this project for Trendmark - Branding Agency.

    We were asked to design a packaging for new product in Bakoma portfolio - fruit mousse based on green apples. We decided to introduce elements which communicate the pro-health qualities - white background, simple typography and clean visualistion of ingredients. Our goal was to show fruits in different way than other yoghurt producers - we used a close-up photography for main ingredient - apple, and isolated clean photo for second fruit. We also introduced "+" to the name of product to emphasize pro-health qualities, and to inform about main ingredient (Jabłuszko means Apple in Polish) and secondary ingredient (e.g. Truskawka means Strawberry).

    Product available at stores.

    What's Unique?

    Packaging Content: Energy bar
    Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA

    Yebo is a company that makes energy bars from the fruit of the coffee plant. In the early days of coffee consumption, Ethiopian shepherds would bind the coffee fruit into a bar for easy consumption in the highlands. In the current economy, the fruit is usually discarded when the coffee bean is harvested, creating an incredible amount of waste. By using the coffee cherry as the basis for a protein bar, Yebo puts this nutrient rich food to use, and gives coffee farmers an additional income. For the company brand and the design of the packaging, Yebo wanted something that would be both traditionally African, but also bright, bold and modern. A variety of African source materials were researched for shape, color, and pattern, including Ndebele architecture, Malian carving, and West African wax cloth. The final packaging design aimed to pay tribute to the continent's incredible visual traditions, while still providing a bold shelf presence to grab consumers' attention.

    The goal was to create a packaging design that would somehow evoke the connection of cosmetics with nature. We started with creation of a nice brand of root cosmetics for the new edition. Then we searched for a possibility of showing something organic to find the connection with nature. As many packaging design already uses organic elements that are usually used in production of creams we wanted to find another way of portraying. Our team came up with an idea of using wood element that not only relates the product to its natural origins, it also makes it look stunning and luxurious at the same time.

    Aroma Mediterranea soaps are part of cosmetics line for body and face car. Aroma Mediterranea line is present on the market for several years, and although it is a very high quality products at acceptable prices, did not have the appropriate sales results. The task was to redesign the existing line - to make it more attractive to the target group (tourists, gifts shoppers...) and highlight the products on the shelf.

    As the basis of this line of rich aromas of Mediterranean plants and fruits, the idea of ​​the whole line is based on the attractive illustrations that convey the "spirit" of the Mediterranean. Using attractive Mediterranean color scheme and combined technique of drawings and watercolors conveys the feeling of nature (drawings of plants and fruits) and water, hydration, relaxation, swimming (watercolor coloring).

    The structure and color of the product is visible through the opening in the top part that allows the passage of light through the structure of the soap (natural or on shelf with a back light) and thereby further highlights the color and structure of the natural soap.
