Spritmuseum by Stockholm Design Lab

Logo designed by Stockholm Design Lab for spirit themed art gallery, museum, tasting room and bar Spritmuseum

Spritmuseum (formerly Vin & Sprithistoriska Museet) is a Stockholm based art gallery, museum, tasting room, meeting-place, bar, restaurant and open-air café with a unique spirit theme. Its new identity, developed by multidisciplinary design agency Stockholm Design Lab, is based around a bold word-mark constructed from a typeface now synonymous with the Absolut brand (and Swedish design) and pairs it with a simple but iconic four stroke glass illustration that neatly draws its reference from the external structure of the museum. This simplicity is reflected through a set of collateral that juxtaposes heavy headlines, underlines and small body copy that has a subtle art-house/editorial quality that looks clean and modernistic. This formality is given a light-hearted twist with a animation that alters the focus of the logo-type capturing the intoxicating theme of the venue.

Falcon designed by Nine

Packaging design by Nine for Swedish pilsner Falcon

Falcon is a Swedish pilsner owned and distributed by Danish brewing company Carlsberg with a family heritage dating back to 1896. As part of an increased marketing spend and a new campaign, directed by DDB, Stockholm based design agency Nine was tasked with repackaging the Falcon brand to reinforce its traditional and premium proposition with a German pilsner inspired aesthetic.

I wrote about this re-brand last week and since then it seems the project has moved towards a far more premium aesthetic dropping some of the more traditional illustrated elements in favour of a conventional beer brand approach; drops of water, wheat, hops and coins etc. (still looks great).
