While working on this project the agency’s specialists had to consider the special attitude towards tequila, especially among the people making up the target audience. It’s a drink for those, who desire vivid experiences and tickling emotions, a drink for bold and brave. Taking this perception of the product into account, the specialists have created a design concept based on the style of the Mexican death cult and its recognizable aesthetics.
The main graphic element of the label is the stylized image of a skull in a sombrero hat with two guns, executed in a way reminiscent of the Mexican Day of the Dead illustrations. This image embodies the tough spirit, which the consumer wants to enjoy while drinking this tequila. The name of the trademark is also emphasized visually and placed in the center of the label for better product identification. The color scheme based on shades of silver, blue and white emphasizes the drink’s general category known as white tequila (tequila blanco).
During this metalized label’s production, several post-printing techniques have been employed, such as the application of tactile varnish. This helped in adding volume to some graphic elements and making the general composition more attractive.
