Rakia Bar Preserves by Coba & Associates

Packaging with a typographic approach designed by Coba & Associates for preserve range created by Belgrade-based bar Rakia.

Independent design agency Coba & Associates were recently commissioned to develop the packaging for a new range of preserves created by Rakia, a bar located in the centre of Belgrade that offers a mix of local and exclusive coffees, spirits and snacks, which has grown to include a gift-shop selling a variety of high quality, traditional own brand ranges.

“What set us opening Rakia Bar is the fusion of our love for Belgrade and Serbian tradition and our wish to present a characteristically Serbian product in a contemporary way.”

– Founder Branko Nešić

While the diacritics make the characters a little tight in places, Coba’s type only solution neatly juxtaposes a modern, weighty and geometric sans serif, a simple die cut, black satin adhesive label alongside a soft craft-based pastel colour palette and a traditional, high gloss structural design. It is a smart contrast of classic and contemporary design cues that deliver a distinctive and unique resolution of handcraft and exclusivity.

Support BP&O



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.
