OAC – Only At Christmas designed by Believe In

Packaging for Christmas gift OAC - Only At Christmas designed by Believe In

UK based design studio Believe In have produced a festive gift to thank clients, friends and suppliers. Blended by hand by a small team of artisan producers in Devon, the orange and chocolate liqueur is contained within a black gloss bottle and a warm copper metallic paper tag provided by GF Smith with a white ink print finish. It is combination that delivers a distinctive contrast of colour and surface texture that neatly reflects the duality of the name OAC – ‘Only At Christmas’ and ‘Orange And Chocolate’ – and captures the creativity and collaborative nature of the studio, while the signature details, numbers and the space for festive messages keep it personal with a crafted, batch produced sensibility.

The range’s visual identity and packaging solution, created to be perceived as tactile, timeless and trustworthy by design agency BVD, unites the on-trend accessibility of a near consistent single line weight, soft curves, rounded terminals, all lower-case and well spaced letter-forms and a simple repetition of form through the ‘a’, ‘o’ and ‘p’, with the classic sensibilities of a black and white colour palette, the quality of a matt surface texture and the restraint of a logotype only solution across the packaging. The result, while pared-down, really emphasises, complements and unites the colours and textures of the products with a subtle utility often associated with professional grade cosmetics.
