Before & After: el Jimador Tequila

(4 years ago)
Since its introduction in 1994, el Jimador Tequila has become the top-selling tequila in Mexico. To accelerate growth in the United States, el Jimador needed to strengthen its brand expression to differentiate itself from over 1,300 tequila brands already competing in the market. el Jimador Tequila came to Brown-Forman Design, and then they brought in Cue Design to redesign their packaging to give them the look they needed. "Our partners at Brown-Forman Design invited us to collaborate and help el Jimador tell a more compelling brand story that would grab the attention of energetic young adults in the U.S. market. A premium, 100% agave tequila with authentic credentials, el Jimador needed to retain the equity it had built over the years as Mexico’s most popular tequila, while finding new ways to increase its shelf presence and appeal. The first step was to refresh and refine the brand’s primary identity."        Related Posts:DarcyThe McLennan

Givenchy Lipstick

(4 years ago)
 Two Create has designed iconic lipstick packaging for the couture Parisian brand, Givenchy. The aim was to create a luxe objet d’art that would be a status symbol and icon of the future for the brand. The outcome, named ‘Rouge Interdit’, resembles a modern and refined fashion accessory.  The black grosgrain ribbon references Givenchy's couture heritage and is used to remove the barrel from the sleeve with a feminine gesture. Givenchy creates limited editions of the lipstick each season by updating the ribbon. This clever initiative by Two Create has resulted in a design that has now outlived all predecessors. Two Create’s design remains the signature lipstick of Givenchy’s Le Make-Up range and continues to perform well.  Two Create were responsible for the physical form of the lipstick, it’s materials and decoration including changing the orientation of the ‘Givenchy’ logo from horizontal to vertical for more impact (a principle now implemented by the brand). Two Create also worked on the outer carton, referencing the ribbon texture via a multi-layered embossing.           Related Posts:Worker B CandlesStudent: Fleur De Vie, Potty Mouth Soaps 

YES, I KNOW

(4 years ago)
Fashion2Customer needed to unite several Scandinavian clothing brands in one single multi brand-store and they called upon ViewPoint to help them do so.   "So we were set a widespread task – to create both a common strategy and a total brand visual identification system down to the smallest details. The Store image should have reflected its Scandinavian origin of represented brands, be modern, young and European and so it could be clearly identified by Russian consumers."The target audience of the store is young, advanced, full-hearted people who are in the know of all fashion events and who often say “Yes, I know”.  It is just where the name “Yes, I now” came from. English words constituting it helps make brand international and borderless, on the one hand, and  at the same time remain intelligible for those who do not speak English in general.         Related Posts:Stirling CreameyDarcy

Worker B Candles

(4 years ago)
 Angel Bomb completed the design for Worker B Candles featuring a beautiful laser cut honeycomb pattern. "Beeswax production is an incredibly labor-intensive task, both by the bees and our neighbors at Worker B. When we started developing packaging, we decided to focus on the bee's process of collecting wax. Layered with different elements of the process, custom illustrated flowers climb around the label over the top of a laser cut honeycomb pattern. This movement alludes to the cycle the bees go through to collect this wax throughout their entire life. We then letterpress printed this label in house." - Ashley Hohnstein, Designer, Angel Bomb        Related Posts:Student: Fleur De Vie, Potty Mouth SoapsKallista Beauty

Stirling Creamey

(4 years ago)
Stirling Creamery commissioned Mimi Maxwell to design a creamery with a lot of history. Armed with the old-world know-how of a long line of family cheese makers, Stirling Creamery was established over 85 years ago.With one churn and two coal burning, steam-powered pasteurizers, the West Family began a proud legacy that lives on today.The current design is an evolution of that history. The colors reflect an aspect of each butter type, blue for the clarity of the unsalted, "butter cream" yellow for the salted and orange as a nod to the cheese the Whey comes from for a richer flavoured butter. As well, the solid colouring helps to stand out on the dairy shelf.         Related Posts:Before & After: Seafood KitchenYeti Frozen Custard

Japanese design studio Nendo collaborates with Spanish shoe company Camper to create more water-resistant version of long-selling Peu Ideal shoe.The design, which uses stretchable laces to cover the entire upper of the Beetle, creates a more fluid look to one of the company’s best-selling shoes.“We lit upon the idea of working with Camper’s iconic stretchable shoelaces and knots,” explained a spokesperson from Nendo.“In our design, shoelaces interlaced across the shoe’s upper provide comfort and wearability, at the same time as they take on a starring role, bringing new function and visual style alike.”Available in four colours, the Beetle uses one elastic lace to perforate the shoe, which is then tied in an elegant in knot to keep it in place.Made from a combination of nylon and PU resin, Nendo has added further waterproofing and made the shoe lighter than the original. The sole also features thermal insulation, and the words Human Energy inscribed in reference to shoe’s cushioned outsole.The studio plans to exhibit the shoes at their shop in Milan during the Salone, which runs from April 8-13 this year. The shoes are also available on Camper’s website.This isn’t the first time the two company’s have collaborated together. Last year, Nendo designed the brand’s flagship New York store featuring more than a thousand ghostly white shoes protruding from the walls.Camper has also worked with a number of other high profile designers on its shoe line.
