Melbourne-based design studio Cloudy Co. have recently developed the labels for a limited edition wine collection by Jamsheed created exclusively for award winning Surrey Hills restaurant Bentley. Based around a halftone illustrative interpretation of traditional Persian patterns alongside a tactile thermographic ink process and utilitarian typography, Cloudy Co.’s design solution delivers a really love sense of detail within detail, texture and colour. It transforms the geometric into the organic through contemporary technique infusing the label with a rich depth and density that resonates well with the often complex flavour profiles of wine and the art and craft nature of its production, while also conveying the modern philosophies and interior design of the restaurant.
Candles of New Zealand is a family run business established in 2008 by Nicola & Steven Farrant and based in the Bay of Plenty. In preparation for the Auckland gift fair, design agency Family Design Co. redesigned their brand and packaging propositions to better reflect the company’s vision and to create a diverse but unified collection and visually characterising the handcrafted, traditionally produced and high quality aspects of the products.
