Hennessy Very Special Limited Edition

(4 years ago)
Brand design agency ButterflyCannon, were tasked with redesigning the Hennessy Very Special packaging. The challenge was that the new design had to appeal not only to the young, hedonistic consumer but also to the loyal and traditional Hennessy Cognac drinkers. Heritage and personality had to be mixed to perfection for this brand. “ButterflyCannon have understood what it means to be a premium brand from start to finish of the redesign and have also managed to inject life into the packs by celebrating our brand codes in such a confident way.”   - Sandrine Rudnicki, International Senior Brand Manager at Hennessy Designing with the new bottle structure in mind, ButterflyCannon have created a bolder and more masculine pack, taking the Hennessy Very Special brand equities and making them the heroes of the design. Foil, embossing and gloss varnish have been applied, which bring these icons to life. ButterflyCannon identified the ‘Very Special’ category code as being a differentiating factor for Hennessy VS, the creators of this classification, and have made it feature more prominently on the pack.        Related Posts:Elixyr Limited Iconic Edition CigarettesHappynitol 150 mg

Year Of The Horse

(4 years ago)
I am loving this self-promo piece from MM Identity Lab, a desk calendar that doubles as a deck of cards when the year is over. "Every year, MM Identity Lab produces a calendar that correlates with the Chinese Zodiac. Because 2014 is the Year of the Wooden Horse, we decided to create a poker-inspired desk calendar that doubles as a deck of cards. The woodcut-style illustration and wooden holder play off of the Zodiac. 12 of the 52 cards in the deck represent the 12 months in the year and correlate with the four seasons. These calendar cards can be displayed on the wooden holder to guide a person through 2014. Come the next year, the calendar can hang around as a custom-designed deck of playing cards.  Two color offset print on ivory paper gave the illustration added depth and made it pop. The custom-made wooden holders were hand stained to add character and individuality to every piece. Everything was packed in hand-stamped boxes with wispy hay to round out the presentation."        Related Posts:Happynitol 150 mgBaron Fig

Bell Verd (lovely green) Olive Oil

(4 years ago)
Spanish agency Senyor Estudi creates a cross-stitch inspired label for Bell Verd olive oil:   "It is vital that olives are harvested at the optimal level of greenness in order to obtain an oil of the highest quality. This is the reason that this ecological olive producer combines mechanized and natural processes to gather the entire harvest within a few hours, replacing the traditional image of a grandfather striking the olive branches with a stick. The overlapping of the initials B and V, using typographies from old cross-stitch templates has enabled us to ensure that the colour takes centre stage."        Related Posts:Devine Color for Target23 a Day

Spanish band Goodfellows created a medical inspired package for their latest album:  "After hearing the songs and feeling the positive energy that passed, we proposed to link these two concepts, positive energy and pills.  We chose the title "Happynitol 150 mg" and decided to present the album as a revitalizing medicine 10 pills. 10 Songs that help you see life in a lively and jaunty manner. 150 mg is the weight of a CD. The booklet with credits take the form of prospectus medicine.  Curiously, the group in concert, handed out packs of 10 jellies designed with the same graphic style and concept of medicine."        Related Posts:Baron FigTenfold Christmas Gift
