Thoughts from the Brand Around the neck of the bottle,...

This week the focus was on Perfecta chardonnay.  The vintage label design drew me in and I was excited to learn more about the brand.  However, I quickly found that there was little to learn about Perfecta online.  So, I headed into the design process with the label and the flavor as my inspiration.

The Taste of Perfecta Chardonnay

The label is a cool retro design.  The cork is boring and plain.  So, on to the taste……. Thoughts from the Brand Looking online, I think I’ve found myself another beautiful bottle without any information online.  No website.  No reviews.  No Backstory.  Little to nothing.  I did find this brand description on one of the few sites I located....

This week, I’ve chosen Perfecta – a North Coast Chardonnay.  The image on the logo really drew me to this bottle.  I was intrigued by the woman with the flowing hair leaning on the bike.  I wanted to learn more about the name and the wine….which is a good sign that the bottle has me a bit hooked. So, I pulled the bottle off the shelf and...

St. Patrick’s Day Design

The...

The Taste of Life & Limb

Apparently, I was so fascinated by the pretty pictures on the label when I purchased the beer that I TOTALLY missed the fact that this beer is a collaboration between Sierra Nevada and Dogfish Head breweries.  When I saw “bottled and brewed by Sierra Nevada, I stopped there. Now, actually reading the label to see if they describe the taste, I see the partnership....

This week, I started the selection process at Super Wine and Liquor in Canton.  I absolutely love this place.  There are sooooo many wines and beers to choose from that I am truly like a kid in a candy store.  I pick great bottle and label designs left and right.  Then I’m always forced to narrow the options, pick just a couple and save the rest for...

This week I’m featuring my first hard cider.  The packaging of this one is so fun and full of personality I’m excited for the week ahead. I love the little truck that is integrated on the bottle cap.  Creating a design with just the cap is certain to be a fun and whimsical style.
