Great bottle design for Blossa 2011. Containing glögg (mulled wine) flavoured with arabica coffee from El Salvador, the bottle focuses on the GPS coordinates of the coffee plantation.

Masterson’s Rye Whiskey.
“Drawing inspiration from its namesake, the packaging is imbued with Bat Masterson’s life and lore. The bottle has a strikingly graceful shoulder that’s reminiscent of 19th century whiskey flasks, while the small front label lets the whiskey’s glorious amber hue do most of the talking. Serving as a tribute to Masterson’s days as a renowned journalist, the die-cut label resembles a clipped-out newspaper column, complete with torn edges like a real newspaper. The exterior box features a die-cut window, allowing the label to stand out-yet fit in seamlessly with newspaper articles printed over the surface of the box. The articles delve deeper into Masterson’s life and were custom written in the distinctively verbose and dramatic turn-of-the-century tone.”
Chocolates with attitude.
“12 archetypes.12 filled chocolates.12 months. Bessermachen design studio had a dream about how archetypes could be shown as young women, calendar girls in a classic 50s style, to create the perfect packaging for archetypes and chocolates. But we knew that for it to be authentic, it would have to be done right.
They were perfectionists in the 50s. First they photographed the model. Then they painted over the picture to achieve the right effect. There were no shortcuts. And speed was of the essence.
To create pin-up girl illustrations, you have to be faithful to the way it was done in the 50s. From the ground up and without compromise.
Packaging for the chocolates is a chapter for itself. Everything from weight to quality and coating needs to be taken into consideration. Suggestions range from using fabrics to cardboard. But in the spirit of the 50s we end up choosing tin boxes. The production, however, is modern and made in China.”
