Black Vodka

Posted: April 24th, 2014 | Author: Derrick Lin | Filed under: Alcohol, Europe, Norway | Comments Off

Designers: Anti and Fredrik Melby
Type of work: Commercial work
Country: Oslo, Norway

REMEMBER EVERYTHING. Anti has developed a brand new vodka together with Arcus. From June 2013, Black Vodka is available at Vinmonopolet and hand picked clubs and bars all over Norway. Concept, idea, graphic design, product design by Anti. Bottling, sales and distribution by Arcus.

"By developing our own products, we also develop an understanding of the complex world of our clients" - Fredrik Melby

BOTTLING. We were fortunate enough to be allowed into the production facilities at Arcus during the bottling procedure. Amazing to see the machines and how they all work seamlessy together, and a thrill to witness what started out as an idea in a notebook several months ago, finally come to life.

Remember shooting your first roll of film as an enthusiastic and slightly precocious six year-old on a sticky disposable camera? I do – and the film was dominated by the backs of people’s heads. I was devastated that I hadn’t created a collection of immaculate and traditional family portraits, of course, but little did I realise back then that the backs can be just as beautiful.

Photography: Stunning series of football pitches taken all around the world by Austen Ezzell

Posted: April 24th, 2014 | Author: Liv Siddall | Filed under: Uncategorized | Comments Off


The people at It’s Nice That – including me – who aren’t really into football get reprimanded for referring to it as “the beautiful game” or “the game of two halves” or “the game of the reds and the blues.” But you know, it’s hard for someone who isn’t into football to get emotional about it. Sometimes you see footage of a screaming crowd or a kid in a stripy scarf crying in the stalls an it makes you weepy, sure. But when you see photos like this, of kids running around in the evening sun playing “the beautiful game” with a makeshift ball with some twigs as goalposts then yeah, it does seem pretty unbelievable. Well done Austen for taking this series of shots, and for making the most of his trip round the world rather than just sitting in cafes reading The Celestine Prophecy with a bunch of vest-wearing Etonians.

Illustrator Masina Nina created these lovely illustrations for her home town Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The cool thing is that she not only created a dedicated blog about her city illustrations called sarajevodingbats but she also gets them onto tote bags, mugs and other items. Keep up the good work.

Taft Street Heritage Labels

Posted: April 24th, 2014 | Author: Derrick Lin | Filed under: Alcohol, Americas, USA | Comments Off

Agency: Michael Osborne Design
Designers: Michael Osborne; Jane Anderson
Client: Taft Street Winery
Type of work: Commercial work
Country: United States

Taft Street Winery: Heritage Label is one of three tiers redesigned in the brand identity and label refresh by Michael Osborne Design. This tier, designed specifically for small-production, tasting room selections, personifies the garagistes tradition through the simple pairing of vintage garage and wine-making tools throughout the line of varietals. As the label proclaims, these wines are "Garage Crafted With Love."

"The term 'garagistes' originated in Bordeaux in the 1980’s and referred to a group of innovative winemakers who produced exceptional wines in their garages rather than in grand chateaux. Since 1979, Taft Street has carried on the garagistes tradition of innovation and excellence in a chateau alternative locale; producing limited production, handcrafted wines from select Sonoma County vineyards.

Dr. Faust Collection

Posted: April 24th, 2014 | Author: Derrick Lin | Filed under: Alcohol, Europe, Germany | Comments Off

Agency: brandfield*
Designer: David Brinkmann, Yelena Litzinger
Client: Moselland eG
Type Of Work: Commercial Work
Country: Germany

This bottle was designed exclusively for our client. What makes this bottle design different from the others out there on the market is that you are able to design four completely different label styles on each side of the bottle making each design unique. The Dr Faust collection has been on the German market for quite some time now and needed a makeover. It seemed like the right time to be the first to present itself in the new 4B-Bottle.
