Back in November 2011 premium soy wax candle brand Rewined launched a new packaging solution created by Charleston-based independent design agency Stitch. I described the project in my original post as neatly resolving the themes of candle and wine craft, vintage and heritage through a diverse but coherent combination of earthy textures, a recycled letter-pressed label, hand stamped stickers, a simple identity solution that draws together origin and local industry through a classic circular crest lock-up with aged and humanist imperfections, alongside a bright ‘wax’ seal token and hand signed detail.
Stitch have recently published images of a number of other brand assets that share and expand on the craft cues and textures of the product with the addition of a lovely two ply, uncoated, unbleached board and a light veneered business card with sticker detail, the brass screws of the catalogue, the deep green of a tape and the grain sack-like qualities of a string-tied canvas bag.
Naturepaint is a British brand of ‘earth-friendly’ powdered wall paint formulated from biodegradable, non-toxic, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. London based studio B&B recently created a new visual identity and packaging solution for the brand which replaces the saturated visual cues of the original with a distinctive duality and contrast of contemporary form and classic type that better reflects the high quality and hardwearing qualities of the paint.
Accents is a MX based home furnishing, lighting, interior design service and retailer established in 2005. Their new brand identity, created by La Tortilleria to coincide with the brand’s sixth anniversary and which included logo, stationery and website design, is a wonderful and communicative union of die cut detail, sans serif and serif type, fine lines, uncoated and varnished textures and a simple monochromatic colour palette.
