South Bay Rum by Edmundson Martin

Packaging by Edmundson Martin for handcrafted, micro-distilled, single batch premium rum South Bay

South Bay Rum is a handcrafted, micro-distilled, single batch premium rum locally produced from cane harvested near the southwestern shores of Lake Okeechobee, Florida also known as sugar cane country. The product’s identity and packaging was handled by Florida based freelance design team Edmundson Martin.

The cold, white wash wooden treatment of the background photography really sets the overall tone of this packaging project and wonderfully contrasts against the warm colour of the rum and the deep red of the logo-mark. The distressed textures and sun bleached effects are subtly applied and give the product a suitably aged aesthetic and hint at the hot and dry regional climate. The crossed palms identity is nicely constructed and utilises a seal aesthetic that evokes the usual associations of guaranteed quality and assurance. The individual components of the logo-mark have been neatly reassembled in a vertical lock-up that works particularly well for the lid seal. The label typography is a nice balance of monospace, slab serif and script that suitably draws together the handcrafted and limited nature of the product.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
