Melbourne-based design studio Cloudy Co. have recently developed the labels and visual identity for Yarra Valley boutique wine label Jamsheed, ‘named after a Persian king who according to ancient writings had a fondness for storing fresh grapes in jars, thus leading to the discovery of wine’. The packaging solution expands on the name and communicates a sense of bold flavour and craft through geometric, Persian pattern work executed with a heavy, contemporary, single and consistent line weight, the high quality and tactile detail of a lovely thermographic ink treatment and a simple variation in crop and colour dividing each variety.

The identity fuses the angular illustrative elements of the bottles with the more recent but traditional circular sensibilities of a wine maker’s seal, creating a distinctive thematic and visual contrast. The mark has been well rendered with plenty of internal space and a sans serif typographical choice that mixes an uppercase professionalism / authority with the subtle flourishes of a slight variation in stroke width. The result, although aesthetically very simple, manages to leverage and cross pollinate the mathematical creation, artistic appropriation and historical richness of Persian patterns to convey the handcraft and desired perfection of wine production.

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.
