Expatrius is a limited edition range of wines created from grapes grown on the eastern end of Waiheke Island, New Zealand, by winemaker Luc Desbonnets. The wine’s label and case, created by print and digital design agency Inhouse, contrast the fine detail and traditional heraldic cues of a hand-etched illustrative crown, a gold block foil emboss and tactile substrate alongside geometric, abstract letter-forms, solid fills and a striking monochromatic colour palette to communicate the heritage, high quality, craft and exclusivity of the wine and a very distinctive and contemporary brand character.
Lambe & Nieto is a Valencia based company that provides translation services to clients in the fields of contemporary art, architecture, design and emerging technologies. Their new visual identity, created by multi-disciplinary design agency Boscos, mixes a logo-type, simple roundel, uncoated material choices and a hand-embossed finish to capture the professional but personal qualities of the brand and hint at the sectors they service.
Newtown Social Club is a cafe and coffee shop located in the Fitzroy district of Melbourne. Following a recent refurbishment, brand design agency Liquorice Studio developed a new visual identity for the cafe that juxtaposes organic, natural wood prints, hand stamped print finishes, a pastel colour palette, unbleached and uncoated material choices alongside the utilitarian and geometric qualities of a neutral typeface, grid based layouts and perforated self adhesive labels. The result is an earthy craft-based aesthetic executed with a consistent, small-scale sense of practicality that neatly reflects the cafe’s interior, locality and handmade, hand selected products.
