Stanford Shaw

If you’re the old-fashioned type, you might want to check out Stanford Shaw. Designed by Analogo, classic ginger ale is packaged in tinted glass bottles sealed with a crown cork. A label, slightly tinted yellow to give the overall design an antique feel, is wrapped around the bottle at an angle. A pop of red is placed in the logo drawing the eye in. 

“Stanford Shaw is a young brewing company based in Manila, Philippines. Their old fashioned methods and recipes reminds us of an era when drinks was made by hand: when beverages were brewed from wild roots, freshly plucked fruits, patience and time. Honouring their craft, we look for inspiration in old style monograms and early label design for soda beverages, combining vintage aesthetics with contemporary and clean design.”

Lamb’s: A Family of Fine Smooth and Refined Rums

If you’re looking for a good time, make sure there’s a bottle Lamb’s at the next party you go to. Designed by Davis, exquisite dark, amber and white rum are displayed in hexagon-shaped glass bottles. The redesign sticks to the brands traditional roots but modernizes it with a clean label design and nautical illustrations. Hints of gold found on the signature, bottle’s neck and logo add a luxurious element to the rum. 

At the very edge of the country, on an island at the doorstep of the North

Atlantic, where the weather can change at a moment’s notice is where this humble Lamb’s Nation is rooted. 

Introducing a fully revitalized Lamb’s Rum… 

Davis’ (www.davisdesign.ca) branding challenge was to evolve an old forgotten value brand into a new contemporized, uniquely differentiated brand with an edge. Lamb’s Rum is traditionally for discerning men. New Lamb’s also connects with the social in-crowd. Indeed, in Lamb’s Nation we live for large times. 

An iconic shape was created with a new hex dieline label inspired by mimicking the shape of the bottle. The hexagon shape of the bottle ensured Alfred Lamb’s smooth and refined rum would not roll around on ships. Many of the tertiary elements were removed such as coins and copy to focus on exactly what consumers care about: the rum itself, “LAMB’S the name for rum”, and the founder Alfred Lamb.

Diabla Red Sangria

With the summer season approaching, you can expect more and more fruity alcoholic drinks to hit supermarket shelves. One to look out for is Diabla Red Sangria. Designed by Hired Guns Creative, red sangria is packaged in aluminum cans and embellished with a playful illustration of a flamenco dancer staring down a fighting bull. For a sacrilegious twist on the traditional Spanish drink, the design studio decided to take classic iconography and modern iconoclasm and put them head to head resulting in another beautiful design by Hired Guns. 

“Traditional Spanish rose patterns are subverted as they become tattoos; the bull’s nose ring is mirrored in the dancer’s septum piercing; horns, red eyes, and an inverted cross become invocations for Diabla, Spanish for “She-Devil.” Sangria fruit adorns the dancer’s hair, her ruffled collar echoing the giant orange slices that frame the illustration, all rendered in hot-blooded graphic colours on gold.”

Fortnum & Mason Queen Bee honey

Independent brand design agency Design Bridge are delighted to announce details of the design they have created for Fortnum & Mason ‘Queen Bee’ honey, a limited edition Ling Heather honey specially harvested to honor the Queen’s 90th Birthday. Building on their previous work across Fortnum & Mason’s full range of honey, Design Bridge have created a special golden seal for the limited edition run of 1,500 jars to give the honey the royal treatment it deserves. 

Chloe Templeman, design director at Design Bridge, commented “We developed a gold resin seal with specialist label printers to emulate an authentic beeswax seal. It was a technical challenge to create the textured, built-up design and have it wrap so neatly around the curve of the jar, but we’re thrilled with how special and regal it looks and feels.” 

The seal bears an embossed illustration of Fortnum & Mason’s honeybee logo and the Queen’s official coronation crown, re-drawn by Design Bridge specially for the occasion. Accompanying the seal are the words ‘Queen Bee 90th Birthday Honey’ printed in coppery-gold metallic ink on a mild cream paper, warm colours that complement the hue of the honey, and an Eau di Nil tamper seal with the message ‘Happy Birthday’. 

On the back of the jar, Design Bridge have written copy to elevate the royal, celebratory feel of the design and the occasion, while also describing the deliciousness of the honey: ‘… a taste that strengthens with age, much like the lady in whose honour it is produced.’ 

Fortnum & Mason’s master beekeeper meticulously assembled and applied the set of four labels on each of the 1,500 jars before handwriting the batch and unit number on the lid and signing each one to confirm its authenticity. The result is an extra special and carefully crafted jar, fit for the Queen, that matches the superior quality of the Ling Heather honey. 

Yvonne Isherwood, Design and Packaging Manager at Fortnum & Mason’s, commented, “We’re truly delighted with Design Bridge’s work creating the designs for our special edition ‘Queen Bee’ honey. The golden seal on the jar tells the story beautifully and elegantly and we hope Her Majesty gets to sample some as part of her 90th birthday celebrations.”

Gordy’s Fine Brine

For those who LOVE the taste of pickle brine, do I have a beverage for you! Gordy’s Pickle Jar just released a 4-pack of their handmade salty brine for cocktails or for sipping on its own. Packaged in aluminum cans and shrink-wrapped in white plastic, the design is kept minimal with Gordy’s branding in gold. 

Made from the brand’s best-selling Hot Chili Spears, Gordy’s co-founder Sarah Gordon says, “It’s literally a burst of acid and flavor all in one that brightens cocktails and dishes in a very subtle, balanced way. It rounds out cocktails and cooking recipes similar to how a pinch of salt does.”

So, if you are in need of a little zing in your life, try some Gordy’s and let us know how you like the flavor.

Design Nugget #80

Did you know, the first pre-cut paperboard box was invented in 1890 as a result of an accident? Robert Gair, a printer and paper-bag maker, was printing an order of seed bags, and the metal ruler, normally used to crease bags, shifted in position and cut them. Gair discovered that by cutting and creasing in one operation he could make prefabricated paperboard boxes.

Marou Chocolate for National Gallery Singapore

An extraordinary chocolate with a fascinating background story. Marou is a line of chocolates that is infamous for not only its rich, depth of flavor but its striking packaging. Designed by Rice Creative, a new line emerges inspired by the architecture of The National Gallery in Singapore and the traditions of printmaking in Vietnam. 

“The National Gallery Singapore is a new art museum occupying the former Supreme Court and City Hall sites in downtown Singapore. The gallery houses the largest, most comprehensive collection of modern South East Asian artwork in the world. The gallery was keen to partner with Marou Chocolate and co-brand a range of chocolate bars for their store, which would represent both Vietnam and the exceptional architecture of National Gallery.”

“The Gallery is comprised of three distinct spaces: historic, modern and transcendent. We created a set of icons based on these themes. With the spaces identified, Marou were able to conceive 3 flavors that matched them in spirit. Standard chocolate was used as a ‘control’ in the historic bar. Chile infused chocolate represented the modern tree structures which connect there two buildings. Finally, Sea Salt chocolate was chosen to represent the light dappled atrium.”

“Our next challenge was to represent Vietnam. In keeping with the hand-made nature of Marou chocolate, Rice sought to wrap the bars in an authentic and traditional Vietnamese art form. The clear choice was Đông Hồ, which originated in a small village in the North of Vietnam. The process is entirely hand-made. Paper is made from Mulberry bark, with a sparkle added from crushed scallop shell. Red pigment is derived from terra cotta. Green and blue pigments come from natural indigo plant parts. Black ink is charred bamboo leaves, and the white pigment is simply powdered shell. We worked with a family whom have been practicing Đông Hồ for over 500 years. Bridging ancient Vietnam with a modern structure in Singapore, we created motifs using our icons, and commissioned the artisans to print each wrapper. Each bar of chocolate then, is wrapped in a unique price of art.”

La luz del Día

A sweet project for a sweet product. Taking the magic and nostalgia that ice cream inspires, Estudio Yeyé created the branding, illustration, and packaging for La luz del Día ice cream.

“An 80-year tradition returns to the Chihuahuan palate. Curves and colors intertwine to give life to this local delicacy, a logo that aims to last for 80 years more and a graphic set that brings the brand back in the XXI century are the perfect recipe for this project. Childhood is relived by eating ice cream.”

Ice cream as a kid is practically one of the best things ever, and Estudio Yeyé has captured that joy with a little bit of retro charm. Using the shapes of an ice cream scoop and sprinkles, La luz del Día relies on basic graphics and bold colors that reminds us of interior design in the 60s and 70s. Patterns are laid out in an unpredictable manner rather than perfectly repetitive, giving the brand a bit of energy and reminding us how exciting it is to go out and get a delicious scoop (or two!) of ice cream.

Norzola

Dressings, pizzas, burgers, snacks, and salads—blue cheese is incredibly versatile. Oslo agency Dinamo Design developed new illustrations packaging for the beloved classic in order to make it the primary choice for cheese lovers.

“Redesign of the classic blue cheese from TINE. Main objectives of Norzola is to become market leader in blue cheese as a flavor enhancer in everyday food and toppings and snack cheese. The concept is about how easy it is to make good, tasty food, and the little time you need to prepare your meal.”

The outer wrapper for Norzola in many ways mimics the appearance of the blue cheese itself, spotted with color. Various illustrations appear on the packaging, including pasta noodles, ladles, whisks, burgers, mushrooms, and more. This helps to give the consumer a wide range of ideas for using Norzola. A sans serif font in various weights looks contemporary, giving the older packaging an update that will help it appeal to a newer audience that might have overlooked it before.

Virtue Energy Water

Good water that does good. Virtue Energy Water not only provides people with energy without weighing them down with unnecessary additives, but they also give back. Studio More designed the packaging for these cans of water that provide energy naturally.

“We believe everyone looking for energy deserves better options, which is why we created our energy waters. These drinks naturally contain zero sugar, zero calories, with no sweeteners. Our ingredients include sparkling water, natural fruit flavours and nothing artificial.”

Virtue’s appearance is delightfully crisp, with wavy blue waters at the bottom and fizzing bubbles rising from them. Brightly colored illustrations of the fruit flavors float on the water, implying that it offers just the right hint of each one. The background of the can is clear of clutter, indicative of the better ingredients and lack of things like sugar or other added sugars.

“Each can contains the same amount of natural caffeine as a cup of coffee. Our energy comes from natural sources including yerba maté, guarana and ginseng. We are committed to spreading positivity and for every one of our drinks sold, we donate 500L of clean drinking water to those in need.”
