Creative idea explanation:
Describe the brief from the client:The Brandl Winery creates limited edition series of oak-aged wines. The series, created from 3 different wines of varying vintages - Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and Stone Red - were to be given a unified design.Describe the challenges and key objectives: How to show at a glance that the wine has been matured in wooden casks? Describe how you arrived at the final design: The labels were created from veneers, which were cut from the original wooden wine casks. The typeface was engraved directly into the wood. Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market (how well the design was received; results; consumer engagement etc.: The bottles were highly desirable - and not only due to their content. Despite its relatively high price, the limited edition sold out within 5 months.
