Ocean (Океан) is a Russian brand of premium vodka whose packaging has recently been re-imagined by Rostov-na-Donu (Russia) based Alexey Seoev. The illustrative design utilises a painted aesthetic, gold detailing and deep aqua green to capture the mystical qualities of early seafaring.
Following my earlier review of Whitworths for Baking, a new cooking sugar from Napier Brown, Billington’s, owned by The Silver Spoon Company, has launched its own repackaged range of sugar created by JKR. The design takes a bold, colourful and contemporary approach to classic illustrated typography and is based around an iconic B character drawn from Billington’s previous and fairly antiquated design.
Siberian Cold is a Russian vodka brand made using water which has passed through the soils of a region that frequently endures temperatures of -67°. Owned and distributed by Moscow based MosOblAlkogol and designed by Studio In the bottles and labels utilise a combination of frosted glass, a reflective print treatment and sharp illustrative detail to capture the harsh and icy landscape of Siberia.
