    Packaging for baby fragrances. Inditex (Zara)
    ZARA KIDS is a fragrance for children between the ages of 3 and 14. We were asked to come up with two illustrations/characters that were fun and attractive, spoke to a child’s visual language and that also clearly differentiate boys from girls. We created a bunny and a robot with carefully selected colour palettes to fulfill these requirements. In addition to this solution, we had a special interest in giving the characters on the packaging a playful spin (literally) instead of just being attractive protective casing that is thrown away once opened. We came up with the idea, through using cardboard tubes, to rotate the lid so that the eyes of each character changes with each turn. A nice little touch is that the positioning of the lids is not fixed to the base of the tube, which means that each reference lines up differently at the point of sale.

    AMMO means “SHELL” in international communication language. The form, as well as design of the label reminds fighting shells. The ligature MM reminds the attacks directions (the right flank, the centre, the left flank).

    Separation in a line is made by the compliance of beer styles to shells types. For example, the most popular craft IPA compare with armor-piercing, Black IPA with APCR shell.

    So AMMO beer is like “shells for gamers recharge”. Slogan: “Winners’ beer” (“Beer of winners”).

    The stylish packing for a set of bottles has the form of a box for shells and intensifies “warhead” image, improves convenience of transportation and makes “unit of fire” a presentable gift.

    Packaging Substrate / Materials: Glass
    Printing Process: Offset, Braille UV varnish

    Power of Plant is a new brand from Austria focusing on development of 100% natural products through fair business practices and hand-made production as the alternative to mass industrial process. Starting with hemp oil and aromatic oil immortelle, they will eventually expand their offering to hemp protein powders, aromatic oils and cosmetics.

    Most similar products in the health food market rarely invest in quality branding and design, which eventually created an industry of poorly designed natural products, most of which look unprofessional, muddled with "alternative" brands thus suffering from low credibility with mainstream consumers.

    In our talks with the client it was decided to make a simple, minimal label which would position the brand within the mainstream, but keep it upscale and credible. It was designed to stand proud on the shelf right next to quality extra-virgin olive oils, for example. Using the branded house model, Power of Plant logo is the carrier of visual identity for all products making it simple and affordable to expand the future line of products.

    The logo is a powerful mark which represents the harmony of man and nature. Tree branches, resembling a human with their arms spread and geometric letters P.O.P., symbolizing fruits, are interwoven into a memorable, dynamic logo. Vivid green color is used to show energy/power, with future products having their own vivid color.

    Hemp Oil Label was printed in two colors on Tintoretto Gesso with Braille effect varnish to give texture subtle detail.

    More Than Soap is an animal friendly cosmetic brand. They don't use animals for testing. Also they are making hand made soaps with totally organic herbs and oils. My target customers are women that not only care about their beauty but also care about nature and world.

    The idea behind More Than Soap is; while producing soaps we have to respect nature, people and animals.

    While working on this project, the goal of the packaging was to show animals and nature loves the brand and products. I based the brand's imagery on hand drawn happy animal and fresh fruit illustrations that reflect the handmade nature of the soap.

    I prefer using pastel tones and soft colours for showing comfort and relaxation.

We developed a clean, contemporary brand identity suggestive of Hatch’s artisanal influences, that appeals to both the coffee connoisseur and the everyday, adventurous coffee consumer. This visual language was carried through to the design of the packaging, which uses bold, illustrative imagery, and also to the design of the Hatch website, where consumers can directly purchase and subscribe to their favourite brew.

    We simply printed a set of lines on the inside of each FRAKTA bag turning it from “just” a bag into a product with endless possibilities. It’s pretty much reflecting what the entire product range of IKEA promises. People were now able to turn the bag into items like a baby bib or an apron, picnic mats and even fun items like pet raincoats and camel mounts.

    The small change turned a functional product into an effective communication medium without a significant increase in production costs. It communicated IKEA’s core philosophy of making more from less effectively. On top of that it encouraged its audience to share their own ideas with other consumers and the brand.

    The strategy was simple: turn IKEA’s biggest seller into a high reach medium that our audience could interact with.

    Inaugural release of Yalumba’s most prestigious wine, with design by Denomination
    Leading drinks design specialist Denomination has unveiled packaging and brand identity for The Caley, the most prestigious wine yet from Yalumba, a fifth-generation family wine company of the Barossa, South Australia.

    The design reflects the exclusivity and luxury nature of The Caley through the use of techniques such as foiling, heavy debossing the family crest.

    Horticulturalist, correspondent and adventurer
    The Caley is named after Chairman Robert Hill Smith’s great uncle Fred Caley Smith, who criss-crossed the globe for 18 months to gather knowledge to help his family’s fruit growing business. The bottle highlights Fred’s reputation as a horticulturalist, correspondent and adventurer, recalling the company’s long history.

    Denomination created a suite of elements for The Caley, all designed with luxury cues befitting a wine of this status. These include a gift box, photo book of Fred’s travels, invitations, brochure, trade presenter and beauty photography.

    The tissue paper wrapped around the wine details the destinations and journeys of Fred’s travels between 1893 and 1894. Featuring the Caley family crest, the packaging uses sculptural embossing and overprinting.

    Rowena Curlewis, CEO Denomination, says: “For Yalumba, The Caley is a wine that has been waiting to be made for well over a century. For us The Caley was a design project well worth waiting for. We love the way the company’s heritage and the story around Fred plays out on both pack and the rest of the collateral.

    “The attention to detail we put into the packaging design illustrates the quality of this wine to great effect and boasts a compelling backstory to spark interest with consumers.”

    Renowned wine writer James Halliday adds: “Its [The Caley’s] packaging outdoes any red wine in the Australian market today.”

    The Caley launched on May 12th – the 124th anniversary of Fred Caley Smith’s arrival in San Francisco.

    The image on the package is made in pencil supplemented with "tasty" photos of the finished product and examples of its serving. It was romantic graphics of fairy tale that led to the drawing style. Also, thanks to conversation from first person the idea allows creating interesting communications on the shelf and in the retail zone.

    This is an age in which wine labels are at the peak of design, all of them seek to tell a story or to be the more embellished one and stand out from the rest. This fact often gains such notable prominence that wine, the important matter, is forgotten.

    The minimalist project was conceived from a need to represent wine clearly and purely, without decorative elements, but in the simplest and most meaningful way. Setting the label in its corresponding place, product tag, leaving all the charm for the content of the bottle, (that) is what truly matters.

    Through this conceptual project, I seek to develop awareness of wine labels and packaging in general. How far does design take the lead over the product and relegates it to the background? Do our customers seek to sell design or sell the actual product?

    Bee keepers spend most of their life with the bees. In a way, they “fall in love” with what they do: taking care of the beloved little bees that provide them with their precious honey. This “kind of love” is expressed through the brand name: The Lover Of Bees which is inspired by the old Greek classic film: The Lover of the Shepherdess.

    This idea is further exploited by the old film poster like treatment of both the brandname and the depiction of the protagonist that is following the aesthetics of the great film poster artist G.Vakirtzis. The slogan “A taste of cinematic proportions” serves as a promise to the consumer regarding the quality of the brand.

    Location: Romanèche-Thorins, France

    Les Vins Georges Duboeuf today revealed the original work of art to be featured on the 2017 vintage of its Beaujolais Nouveau, marking the 35th year of the wine’s appearance in the US and the start of the “Artist Collector Series” of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau labels.

    Ari Azzopardi’s “Candy Coated” was named the winner after voting took place on Facebook and Instagram in a competition of original art from artists around the world. The artwork, incorporated into the wine’s label, will appear in the U.S. on as many as one million bottles of the “first wine of the harvest” which debuts, per French law and tradition, at 12:01 a.m. on the third Thursday in November (November 16, 2017). In a number of markets around the country on that day, parties to welcome the wine’s arrival will be held in galleries and art spaces, and will feature a limited number of specially created posters of the artwork for “art- and Beaujolais Nouveau-lovers” attending.

    Azzopardi is a mixed-media artist who currently resides in St. Petersburg, Fla., with a BFA in painting and sculpture. Her creative process is driven by spontaneity, and focuses on form, color and energy.

    Georges Duboeuf has a great appreciation for the arts and the passion that drives creative people. “We are dedicating this vintage to the creators, dreamers, builders—anyone who is passionate about what they do,” he said. “This artist competition and Ms. Azzopardi’s work perfectly capture this sentiment.”

    For the first time, artists from a number of backgrounds from around the globe submitted their label designs for a chance to win up to $5,000 in grants. Jon Lutz, a Brooklyn-based art curator who has worked with emerging artists for the past 12 years, chose the 13 finalists from over 200 submissions. Fans were then able to pick their favorite label by liking, sharing and commenting on Facebook and Instagram.

    Last year’s label (the 2016 vintage) was also chosen by voting on social media, but entries came from professional graphic designers. The 2017 competition was open to artists of all mediums and backgrounds. Les Vins Georges Duboeuf has a history of commissioning artist-designed labels for its Beaujolais Nouveau, as far back as the 1980s.

    The tradition of Nouveau began with the wine growers themselves who would celebrate the end of the harvest with this young wine. Bottled six to eight weeks after the grapes are harvested; Beaujolais Nouveau is fresh, fruity and vibrant. The vin de l’année was initially only for local consumption. For the growers, and now for the world, Beaujolais Nouveau is often considered to be an indicator of the quality of the vintage and it is recommended served with a light chill.

    The wine’s release the week before Thanksgiving has encouraged its place as part of the holiday season. “The Beaujolais Nouveau has become an integral part of many holiday festivities with friends and family, and we’re excited that the label competition highlights the spirit of that tradition, resulting in a label that will inspire Americans to continue the celebration,” explains Dennis Kreps, co-owner with his father, Stephen D. Kreps, of Quintessential, the family-owned-and-operated import, marketing and sales company that represents Les Vins Georges Duboeuf in the U.S.

    Azzopardi will receive a $3,500 grant for the winning label, while the remaining finalists will each have their labels presented as an option for private label bottlings that are released every year. If chosen, the artist will receive a $1,500 grant.

    Yashkino is the most important brand of KDV, a group that has been operating on the Russian market for 25 years. 65 products are marketed under the brand today, making for a vast choice that meets the needs of both a young and a mature target. The range, however, was expanded over many years which lead to a fragmented and inconsistent brand image. Also, the overall appetizing appeal of the products needs to be improved.

    The brand needs a more consistent image and a stronger, modern personality. A new brand system will have to rationalize the wide offering while defining the three main categories of products (daily products, bakery and chocolate). Every single implementation will need to enhance the appetizing appeal as well.

    The logo was made more modern and recognizable thanks to a new shape, a smaller decorative element and a new font type. The new tagline Easy to love, illustrates the company philosophy: creating products that can be easily be loved by its customers thanks to a high value for money ratio (achieved through a cost-efficient production process, without giving up on quality ingredients).

    The 3 main lines are defined with colour variations: a bright red logo and a yellow packaging background add dynamism to daily products, whereas a darker red logo and a white background give elegance to the bakery line (meant for special moments and prepared with gourmet ingredients). Finally, the chocolate line stands out for its beige background and its dynamic visuals.
