Leuven

Differentiation is probably the most important factor in packaging these days as packaging is often the only way to appeal and compete with other products on the shelf: it has to stand out among others. This solution is clearly a new approach and concept for beer packaging: not breakable, lighter to carry, less production cost, therefore has advantages in both delivery and production. From brainstorming to branding, choosing the materials and finishing, Leuven differentiates itself from other premium Belgian beers in the market.

Breezer Be Bold

Interbrand was briefed to create Breezer's first-ever Limited Edition that screams internationality, sets its sights on the China market, and be irresistible to young females. The challenge was to keep the design uniquely true to the essence of each flavor, and yet still relevant to our female audience. The solution was a spontaneous physical interaction with each fruit’s appearance and texture, like squeeze a lime, so it is relevant to the product category. A twist was added to transform each bottle a special personality that reflects the bold and daring characteristics of female.

Paths of Light

The best way to hold the short animation Paths of Light by Zina Caramelo was to ensure that the DVD had a beautiful case to match. The packaging actually looks like it was plucked from the woods and moulded to form a CD. On the outside, various lines are visible, almost appearing as small trees growing up the side of the case. The wooden exterior also helps to give it an extremely naturalistic look.

Old Hands

In the final design copper was introduced as a link to the barrel the brewers sit around at work when talking about hops and flavours. A raised varnish of a rough handprint was applied on to the copper so each bottle feels like the drinker is shaking hands with the old brewer himself. Copper also links to the tradition and craft of beer making. The second vibrant colour palette of the branding was used to illustrate the exciting flavours and combinations the range launched. The final design has modernity, craft, confidence and standout.

LuvIt Rocks

LuvIt is an Indian youth-based chocolate brand. For their praline collection, they wished to target young adults, as the existing praline buyers were middle-aged customers. The studio focuses on balancing trendy youth sensibilities while retaining the sophistication of pralines. Custom praline shapes were designed & branded as LuvIt Rocks — a tongue-in-cheek pun suggesting good taste alongside it's gemstone-like shapes. A custom typographic brand pattern with gold foiled letters was created that playfully envelopes the box. The box comes in 3 vibrant colours to choose from.
