Le Naturel is an all-natural wine created without the use of sulphites by Spanish producer Vintae. Vintae describes itself as an innovative, young and dynamic enterprise, representing the avant-garde and revolutionising different aspects of the wine-growing industry.
The wine’s packaging, developed by Moruba, embraces an unusual and distinctive change in communicative priorities, discarding the perceived high qualities of foil and tactile papers, verbose narrative, the themes of heritage, craft and provenance typically associated with the industry and instead leverages an increasing popularity for typographic and ink austerity. This approach places weight on a single piece of information—the established relationship between freshness and best-before dates—and utilises ubiquitous sans-serif typography to convey this with honesty and precision whilst reflecting the brand’s avant-garde approach.
Single Origin is a Sydney-based coffee specialist with a roast works in Botany and a cafe in Surrey Hills. Single Origin approached Maud to create a brand identity solution—which included logo design, stationery and packaging—that would reflect the low-key nature of the brand, the founders’ desire to avoid any notion of commercialism and help them expand into new markets. In a ‘category rife with style over substance’, Single Origin is described by Maud as a ‘beacon of integrity’.
