Original Miller Lite Can Limited-Edition

(4 years ago)
Designed by Soulsight, the Original Lite Can features the familiar images of hops, barley and the words "a fine pilsner beer," which reinforce the high quality ingredients and the unique brewing process that consumers have enjoyed for generations.  "There was a time when all that existed was heavy beer that weighed you down. The launch of Miller Lite broke this category convention and offered beer drinkers the best of both worlds, great taste at only 96 calories and 3.2 carbs.

Designed by BrandFirst, these throwback packages were first created for Cracker Barrel® Old Country Stores, and have been so well received that they are now carried by multiple retailers nationwide. An integral part of reintroducing a classic candy is to maintain the look and feel of the original while also making it approachable to a modern audience. With this packaging, BrandFirst has successfully balanced the authentic with the contemporary. Simplified typography, vintage-style illustrations and a timeworn cream-colored background give the packages a nostalgic charm. At the same time, the custom illustrated characters have been recreated for a modern era while maintaining the simplicity of the “good old days.” Finding the right balance between respecting the heritage of a brand and updating the look of a brand to be relevant to today’s world is always a challenge. With these retro-inspired designs, BrandFirst has found just the right mix.        Related Posts:Perfect BarNative Coffee Roasters

Stumbras Vodka Premium Organic

(4 years ago)
When it comes to organic products, the usual images immediately come to mind, with green as the dominant color on textured paper, natural, realistic pictures of the nature, and so on. Stumbras decided to present its new product – organic vodka – to its customers in a slightly different manner. First and foremost, with an intriguing design – something innovative and unique to the market. Subtle, yet rich and they hired Edvardas Kavarskas to do so.Stumbras Vodka Premium Organic is produced from wheat grown on an organic farm and deep subsurface water. Its production also includes filtration through a unique linen filter – the very unique filter in the world. Though no longer grown in Lithuania, flax is still a distinctly Lithuanian plant and thus acted as the leading design inspiration. The natural, blue colour of the flax blossom, the pattern on the bottle neck reminiscent of mature flax, and the linen filter symbol are the main eye-catching design elements, while the paper used for the label, the subtle foil decor and the embossed details evoke sensations of touch.        Related Posts:Botan Protein WaterEl Maestro Sierra 

The Iron Duke

(4 years ago)
Parallax has been helping Bleasdale tell their stories for over a decade. "When briefed on a new super premium Cabernet Sauvignon, our first stop was Bleasdale’s archives for a tale to wrap the new wine in. In the 1870s, Imperial Russia was considered to be the British Empire’s most dangerous enemy. In distant South Australia, a very real (but quite unfounded) fear of invasion followed. Armed with the trusty rifle he named 'The Iron Duke', Frank Potts heeded the call, assembling an army of locals equipped with muskets, shot-guns and 'pointed sticks'. Fortunately for all, the Russian Army never materialised on the banks of Langhorne Creek. But the story lives on with Bleasdale’s latest offering, 'The Iron Duke' Cabernet Sauvignon."Finished in heavy weight imported glass, each bottle is labelled with its own engraved metal gun plate and wrapped in tissue bearing an illustration of "The Iron Duke".        Related Posts:El Maestro SierraTaylors The Visionary Cabernet Sauvignon

Botan Protein Water

(4 years ago)
Bex Brands was commissioned to design Botan Protein Water. Botan Protein Water is the first ready-to-drink vegan protein beverage made from pea protein. Pea protein is a great alternative for those who have food allergies or those trying to maintain a more plant-based diet. "We wanted a package that expressed both the function and the sustainability of the product. By using their logo mark as the main visual, it evokes movement and a consciousness of well-being for individuals and our community.  The large logo with simple type feels elegant & minimal on it's own, but in a group on the shelf it creates an eye-catching pattern that draws attention with a luxe attitude.  Our client was thrilled with the results, as they've been able to attract many buyer from markets all around that were previously uninterested in the product."        Related Posts:Made JuiceTaylors The Visionary Cabernet Sauvignon

Tenfold Christmas Gift

(4 years ago)
Prior to the Christmas holidays, New Zealand agency Tenfold Creative sent out a mysterious, unbranded box to recipients all around the country. The box was understated with intriguing copy on the outer sleeve, which commented on the work-to-holiday mode switch. "As the recipient opened the package they were provided with information to help adjust to this switch, a pie-graph card showed how time should be spent during the holiday season in comparison to at work (for instance, time spent 'managing the inbox' should be spent 'managing the tan lines'). Lifting the card revealed a delicious version of the pie graph made out of creamy, milk chocolate.  The helpful and enjoyable nature of this piece reflects Tenfold's strong service culture, either at work or on holiday. Using a pie chart stems from Tenfold's core brand values – 'creating better results'."        Related Posts:Taylors The Visionary Cabernet SauvignonTea Bar
