Nice Branding Kit for La Diplomate Tea House

On 09, Oct 2014 | | In Branding, Packaging |

Nice branding kit by Rice Creative.

From the designer: La Diplomate celebrates tea. They offer 60+ teas from all over the world. We created the visual identity, and packaging solutions for the gorgeous 18th century storefront which sits on a quaint pedestrian lane in the center of Bordeaux, France, a newly labeled UNESCO World Heritage site. We sought a bolder look for tea as we found their offering to be a head spinning array of complex flavors. First a story was developed about this mysterious Diplomate who once traveled the world in search of the rarest, finest teas. From here we created her likeness in a simple mark. We combined modernist type with classic detailing for a look which is not time specific. One can experience the history and colorful complexity of tea at La Diplomate. The interior is the result of Thomas Daviet, an interior designer based in London, who commissioned Rice Creative to develop the brand and design the visual identity and packaging. As well as the tea, the space and the brand identity have been inspired by a mix of references through History and Geography: a timeless design for an ancient product. Original features of the shop, include a 17th century fireplace, metallic office ceiling from the 80’s, and guilded detailing. Just like the Lady Diplomate, this shop is from an undisclosed time. She is independent, chic and open to the world.

Photography Packaging Can Be Ugly – Not for The Photographic Archive

On 06, Oct 2014 | | In Packaging, Print |

Photography packaging by Lundgren Lindqvist.

From the designer: The Photographic Archive (TPA) is a collaboration between Lars Dyrendom and the Hasselblad Foundation Library. Dyrendom is a Danish born artist currently residing in Sweden. Dyrendom’s main interest lies in investigating questions about identity – how we construct images and ideas about ourselves, individually as well as collectively.

The Hasselblad Foundation was established in 1979 in accordance with the last will and testament of Erna & Victor Hasselblad. The main aim of the Foundation is to promote research and academic teaching in the natural sciences and photography.

Every month, Dyrendom, or an invited guest curator, selects and presents 4-5 photo books from the Hasselblad Foundation Library. Each month has a specific theme, to which the selected books adhere.

Dyrendom approached us to design the identity and website for TPA. The vertical orientation of the logotype emulates the shape of the back of a book on a shelf. The single dash preceding ‘Archive’ connects to the parallel ‘O’, creating a distinct marque referencing the focused eye of the photographer.

To advertise TPA, we designed bookmark and a wooden book stop in the shape of a book. These were distributed to galleries, libraries and art book shops around the world.

Bottle Packaging for Finisima by Savvy Studio

On 02, Oct 2014 | | In Packaging, Typography |

Bottle packaging by Savvy Studio.

From the designer: “Finísima is an artisanal beer that leans on independent brewing without sacrificing the reach and reception of more commercial brands. A Golden Ale, perfect for introducing the unaccustomed drinker into the world of artisanal beer and yet, its style is respected by connoisseurs.

Visually, it conveys a premium and defying presence. Through unusual formats, it displays top-quality finishes and materials. This is contrasted by a graphic language inspired on Pedro Friedeberg’s work and the Mexican surrealists from the 50s and 60s. We want to create an imaginary universe inspired by bohemian nights and struggling artists where Finísima is served as an antidote against routine or a potion for freedom and artistic creation.

Visually there is a need to continue with a premium and challenging aesthetic, using materials and high quality finishes in unusual formats, contrasted by a language inspired by the work of Pedro Friedeberg and Mexican surrealism of the 50 and 60. We seek to create an image based on lost bohemian nights in bars, misunderstood artists, and an antidote to routine in favor of free artistic creation.”
