g saké | TricorBraun
There is ample competition in the saké market and saké bottle design is often avant-garde and cutting edge. TricorBraun’s “g saké” bottle features elegant type and innovative bottle shape, texture and color.
[yellowtail] Sweet Red Roo | Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits
Single-girl staple [yellowtail] entered into the sweet red wine market with a first of its kind – a prismatic label. Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits aimed to make an impression on purchasers of sweet reds – a variety of wine that saw sales rise 320% in the first 6 months of 2012.
Boneshaker Lodi Zinfandel | CF Napa
AGDA All-Star CF NAPA always brings something special to the (dinner) table. This year, it’s a glow in the dark label for the Boneshaker brand.
Los Dos Wine | Wallace Church
Wallace Church’s playful design for Los Dos Wines features clever interlocking text and a subtle, humorous label identity.
TRIO Dessert Wine Packaging by Zydeco
Dessert Wine bottles have a tricky form factor for design. Zydeco Design’s execution of the TRIO dessert wine series meets the challenge with well drawn art and brand appropriate typography.
