    Client: Weingut Heidenreich
    Location: Moscow, Russia / Wagram, Austria
    Packaging Contents: Wine

    Unicorn Studio Moscow has created a series of bottle labels for the Austrian winery Weingut Heidenreich.

    The line consists of five monovarietal wines: three white and two red. These are simple wines for every day, so we chose a soft and friendly style approach, free of genre cliches and excessive pathos.

    Stories on the labels tell about organoleptic properties of each grape variety. For example, Cabernet Franc is a wine with aroma of fallen leaves, autumn and rain, so its label is decorated with transparent autumn landscape. Crispy like spring air, Grüner Veltliner reminds of the fragrance of blooming meadows - and for it we've created an inspiring blue label with bright colors.

    And of course, there is Sauvignon Blanc with cats, hiding among the blue lupines. This cute image has an ulterior meaning: Sauvignon Blanc has a very distinct note called "pipi de chat", or "cat's pee" in the sommelier's language. We've decided to play with this fun fact and made kitty a main character on the label.

    Kind developed a design concept for Swedish snacks brand Albina Snacks. Its identity is filled with rich natural imagery from fresh fruits forming the capital letter for each unique flavour. The new product line “Fruit Snacks” is a 100% organic candy, made from pressed dried fruit with no added sugar. The idea is to launch a more healthy and natural alternative to traditional candy with three main flavours; strawberry, blueberry and exotic. Since the product is made from nothing but fresh fruits the design is based on the same concept, making nothing but fresh fruits the star of the show.

They use packaging only sourced from UK suppliers and they ensure the material is from European sustainable or recycled sources. They are named after the Aztec emperor Montezuma, this rebrand focuses on the uniqueness of the Gods in this culture and uses them to represent the different flavours of the chocolate bar. They also act as characters that communicate the story of the chocolate making process. I worked with the brand values Innovative, Authentic, Handmade and Luxury.

    Project Objectives: design a new identity and packaging structure for a collection of infused olive oils as part of an already established brand.

    Project Outcomes: for this project I chose A L’Olivier as the parent brand. I designed an identity and used a packaging structure that maintains the classic styling as well as the traditional feel of the brand by replacing the current tin with a package that is more recognizable to a wider audience. The package gives the consumer the feel of an established product without seeming dated.

    For the label, I stripped the complicated current design down to its essence to make it more appealing on the shelf without losing the authenticity of the brand. The label is more modern and streamlined allowing the consumer to easily find it on the shelf and identify what it is. The colour palette gives the consumer further clarification as to the contents of the infused oils without overpowering the brand.

    Retail Store + Brand Extensions ( Utopia, Arcadia, Pie in the Sky, Cloud Nine)

    Project Objectives: create an entirely new retail store and packaging for an extensive product line, taking in consideration what the company provides, target audience, location, architecture, etc. It includes house and private brands, designed accordingly to their unique selling point.

    Project Outcomes: for this project I created a completely new main brand and three brand extensions. The parent brand is Utopia, a specialty meat boutique with all organic and extraordinarily fresh meats. Along with the meats there are also cheeses, various pasta, and a variety of crispbreads. The designs and packaging are meant to reflect the exclusivity of the products and to showcase the high level of freshness provided by the brand.

    The first brand extension to Utopia is Arcadia. For Arcadia I created a line comprised of cookware, kitchen utensils, and a line of spices, rubs and sauces to complement the house brand. The packaging and label designs are made to coordinate, in look and feel, with the main brand.

    The second brand extension is Pie in the Sky. For this extension I created a line of gourmet dessert products and a line of organic flavored milk. For this brand’s design I chose to use all white packaging in order to convey the purity of the ingredients and freshness of the product. The label designs coordinate with the parent brand, but I relied on a softer tone to give the design a lighter feel.

    The third and last brand extension to Utopia is Cloud Nine. This extension is comprised of fresh seasonal fruits, vegetables, and freshly pressed juices. Due to the nature of the products they do not have labels or standard packaging, but I created a branding to be used for multimedia purposes.

    Project Objectives: design a set of seven skincare products and an in–store display as a sub–brand of a marketed brand that is not known in the skincare category, while staying true to the brand’s core values.

    Project Outcomes: as an extension to the well–known RedBull brand I aimed to stay true to the feel of the parent brand without simply mimicking it. I wanted the design to speak to the fact that the product is unisex and, therefore, designed it to appeal to both sexes.

    RedBull, as an energy drink, stands out and is instantly recognizable in a virtual sea of similar products and it was that powerful shelf presence that I wanted to bring to my design of the brand extension. The streamlined design speaks to an elegant and pure product while the package design is unique and creates this project’s shelf presence that I was aiming for.

    The in–store display is meant to convey a sense of movement through its shape and intrigue the eye as an overall structure.

    Packaging Materials: plastic paint cans

    Project Objectives: chose a well–known architect or designer and create a new line of interior household paints in accordance with their artistic style.

    Project Outcomes:
    I wanted to create a design that speaks to the timelessness of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural designs and gives the consumer the inspiration to create. Each paint contains the colours used in the creation of the original architectural designs so that the consumer can more closely recreate the feel of his designs.

    For this project I designed part of a interior paint collection inspired entirely by his former home “Taliesin” and so all of the colours he used are represented on each paint can. On the lid I have shown a gridded pattern using the colour of the paint in the can so that the consumer can more easily see how each colour interacts with the others in the set. Throughout this design, I used angular as well as rounded edges similar to what he is well–known to have used in his design work so that the paints are easily recognizable as having been inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s unique design vision.

    The representation of the nymphs in ancient mythology as feminine beings, able to have relationships with both men and women at will, as outsiders of the masculine domain – because of this reason, the term is commonly applied to those who show a similar behavior.

    After the social movements of the 60s, the men thought that at least these sexually liberated women would need them, except they also redefined sex. Or at least good sex.

    Nymphette is a line of sex toys inspired in the French rococo – feminine, detailed attributes make a comeback in these items in pastel gradients. Stepping away from grotesque, phallocentric shapes, they are thought exclusively for the feminine pleasure. Keeping this in mind, we developed a beautiful logotype, with simple, soft lines creating an intricate yet lovely design, contrasting with the rebellious tagline of the brand "Révolution Rose" or Pink Revolution. For the colors we chose a palette of three basic pastel tones, that combine in different gradients: Pink, Purple and Blue. These color the different items items in the family, giving each one a unique personality.

    The products also posses a texture made of lilies, a flower often associated with the lesbian community, thought of exclusively for the elevation of the pleasure of the user and for the feminine aesthetic. This item comes with a base made out of white marble, which allows for the display of the product in a beautiful, proud way. And to protect and hide the adult content, we used a white plastic cover that shows the logotype as a dry etching, along with a circle with the unique gradient for each product as the only differentiation. On the back of the packaging is the tag with the specifications and the instructions for each product, doubling as a security seal that can be removed to display the packaging in it's white form, looking pure and beautiful.

    Women are often shamed for the sexual appetites, with this products we hope to inspire women to explore and enjoy themselves the way they should.

We wove new details into these elements to create a mood of festivity and celebration on the tin, taking inspiration from the street party that will take place in June to mark the Queen’s special birthday.”

    Both in English and Spanish, the word "flight" ("vuelo") can be used to describe either a sampler platter of different beers or the action or process of flying through the air. We decided to combine these themes and brand our home brew with bird related imagery.

    A very limited batch of Tres Vuelos (Three Flights in English) was home brewed by three friends in Monterrey, Mexico. -Hence the three in the name- only to be shared with friends and family during the holidays. Receiving many positive reviews pushed us to invest even further into our beer, which allowed us to use better quality materials for our labeling and custom wood work for the packaging.

    Tres Vuelos ended up as limited thank you gifts for clients, friends and family presented in a wooden box with varnish accents.
