MUMM CHAMPAGNE - PACKAGING DESIGN


PACKAGING DESIGN

Faithful to its pioneering spirit, Mumm reinvents its iconic bottle through an avant-garde design. The Mumm Grand Cordon bottle thus enhances the Pinot Noir, the House's emblematic grape variety.

The objective of this box set intended for the press and companies was to sublimate and make the bottle design easily identifiable by respecting the brand's DNA.

Creation of a sober packaging in the codes of luxury, the red ribbon embedded in the bottle of the Grand Cordon vintage can be seen through a window dug on the front of the closed box. It opens like a drawer to reveal, on a red background, the emblematic champagne of the Mumm House, which remains attached to the motto of its founder George Hermann Mumm: "Only the best".

Printing on soft touch matt black paper, embossing, hot foil stamping.

Inside the red packaging on gold polyester paper to give depth to the red.

EXCELLENCE RHUM - PACKAGING DESIGN


PACKAGING DESIGN

Excellence Rhum, a family company, honors the authenticity of rums from all over the world and the expertise of traditional distilleries.

For the creation of its "COLLECTION" range, we have established a brand identity and a graphic universe for the 4 first aged rum cuvees with strong tasting notes.

Our concept, based on strong elements from the 4 Caribbean islands, illustrates the history and the identity of rum varieties.

The selection of typical elements from each local culture has enabled us to represent each cuvee with an animal as an ambassador and a symbol of each island.

The use of vivid colors in delicate engraving illustrations gives to the range a real authenticity with a touch of modernity. The colors have been selected so as to highlight the different color and origin of each rum.

SAINT JAMES - PACKAGING DESIGN


PACKAGING DESIGN

SAINT JAMES agricole rums, famous all over the world for their exceptional quality, are the fruit of a long history of passion, know-how and expertise which started in 1765. 

Elaborated from fresh pure sugarcane juice, SAINT JAMES rums have been accredited the Martinique A.O.C. ( Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée/Controlled Designation of Origin) which ensures their quality and their intimate link with the planting terroir.

Our mission was to create a packaging common to the three different SAINT JAMES references. The packaging size was adapted to the Long Island 70 cl.  This packaging had to value the SAINT JAMES brand and to drive purchase intent across the various distribution networks: GMS, Wine merchants, Export (Duty-free).

We created a sober packaging following the codes of the luxury sector,  with a window in the box which lets the front label of the brand readable. The graphics are consistent with the packaging of the 3 decanters so as to create a range effect. The window was designed shifted and overflowing on the side of the packaging to give an identity to the packaging and emphasize the shape of the bottle.

A "Neutral" marking in a way that it is adaptable on the 3 references. - printing on matt black paper: embossing, hot gilt, selective varnish. The inner packaging was lined with gold to sublimate the color of rum drinks.

LA BALEINE A CABOSSE - GLOBAL DESIGN


GLOBAL DESIGN

Claire and Aurélien did not know anything about cocoa until the day they decided to travel to Colombia. They discovered the richness and the variety of cocoa beans. Far from industrial chocolate, they threw themselves into the “bean-to-bar” concept (which means “from the cocoa bean to the chocolate bar”). They roast, crush, winnow and grind the cocoa beans within their store in Marseilles (France) to produce their own range of chocolates. The couple, passionate about their new profession, emphasize on homemade chocolate. In one chocolate bar, there is an explosion of flavors.

It is directly from Colombia that Claire and Aurélien contacted the 2S Global Design agency to help them for their project. Our mission was to develop the global design of the brand.

Why is the brand named La Baleine à Cabosse? (which means “The Whale with the hump” in French. “Bosse” means hump and “Cabosse” means cocoa bean.) In Tumaco, when coming back from a tour of cocoa plantations, the couple saw humpback whales. Their shape immediately reminded them of cocoa beans. That is how La Baleine à Cabosse was created, a legendary creature that traverses the Pacific waters looking for boats filled with cocoa. Apparently, if you see one of these whales from the shore, you are guaranteed to have a spectacular crop the following year.

By creating the identity of the brand, we brought life to the whale “à cabosse” who carries on her back trips from different regions of Colombia, the rising star of exceptional cocoa. The warm colors and raw materials make La Baleine simultaneously traditional and modern. The concept of the brand’s identity had to break with the traditional codes of chocolate factories and sweet stores.

The design of the chocolate bar was made so as to reinforce the story of the brand. We created a thin and wavy shape, making the squares of chocolate easy to cut and enjoyable to eat.

The packaging was conceived without any glue. It is a simple folding decorated by the atmosphere and the decor of the couple’s fabulous trip to Cordoba, Arauca and Tumaco, different regions of Colombia. 3 terroirs, resulting in 3 different flavors.

The universe of the store is shimmering and colorful, combining raw materials and different flat tints in harmony with the identity codes of the brand.

AIKAN WHISKY - GLOBAL DESIGN AND COMMUNICATION


GLOBAL DESIGN AND COMMUNICATION

Aikan is a whisky distilled and matured in France and in Scotland, which then crosses the ocean to arrive up to the Caribbean sea.
It is on the Martinique island that the distillation is pursued, nearby a water source flowing from the Pelée mountain.
There, the whisky ages in oak barrels in JM’s rum distillery wineries.

Aikan means « wedding » in Arawak, which was the language of the first Amerindian in Martinique.
We chose that mixing would be the key element to create the visual identity of the brand, which will be applied to all of its communication mediums.

Aikan’s identity is the result of two climates and also two different times, finding its inspiration in the Amerindian era, the first ones to arrive in Martinique.

We put forward the union between these different universes, which intertwine through an illustration simultaneously ancient, contemporary and representative of the cultural union between Europe and Martinique.

The logo, which represents an Amerindian hairstyle with feathers, also incorporates a lily flower, an explicit reference to the union of these cultures.

We also added a reinforced and hidden message at the back of the facing: the representation of the union between a European woman of that time and an Amerindian man.
This is the symbol of the authentic union of two cultures (printing of a double-sided adhesive label).

COMTESSE DU BARRY - CHRISTMAS BOX AND ADVENT CALENDAR 2017 - PACKAGING DESIGN


PACKAGING DESIGN

CHRISTMAS BOX AND ADVENT CALENDAR 2017

Being a gastronomy expert, Comtesse du Barry is renowned for its large choice of local products and foie gras specialties.

Christmas is that special time of the year in which we give cards, letters and presents that we wrap.
Through the art of presenting gifts, we tell our loved ones how much they mean to us. Comtesse du Barry wished to develop a range of unforgettable Christmas boxes that would be up to this moment.

In 2017, Comtesse du Barry immersed in the wonderful world of origami. This theme corresponds to its traditional inheritance and its two fundamental values: gastronomy and aristocracy.

Originally, origamis were made with quality materials by aristocrats who wished to present gifts that would show their benevolence to their addressee.  

We conceived the range of Christmas boxes by developing a refined, chic and gourmet origami, like a gift that one would unwrap.
In perfect harmony with the institutional boxes of the brand, we created a combination of colors and luminous effects with a Christmas spirit.

This concept is developed on envelopes, ribbons, the press box and in particular the Comtesse du Barry Advent Calendar. The latter being an innovation for the brand, we chose to develop a noteworthy shape, linked to the main theme.

The calendar unfolds to reveal all of its graphics and its surprises in the style of a chic and gourmet origami.
Behind each square, a candy sagely awaits to be savored each day.

ECRIN DE FLEUR - GLOBAL DESIGN


GLOBAL DESIGN

Global design for a brand of natural soaps, made in France and intended for Chinese consumers. The Ecrin de Fleur soaps are made from natural ingredients and respect the environment, presenting various benefits for the skin.

Creation of the brand name, from its identity and graphic universe to the design of its packaging.
Creation of a strong and spiritual symbol to represent the brand: the flower of life, recognized universally and that can be found in many temples in China. This flower emits a harmonious and beneficial wave: a symbolic rosette of the elements of nature.

Reflecting the natural state of mind of the brand, it is an identity that underlines a link between well-being of the body and the mind and reveals the properties of its soaps: the soaps of the brand regenerate, rebalance, harmonize, energize and protect from external aggressions.

The packaging reinforces the brand’s spirit, and underlines a double meaning:
- A refined aspect, echoing the quality and purity of the ingredients, representative of the spiritual values of Ecrin de Fleur.
- The importance of nature, with a herbalist design illustrating the perfume of each soap. Work on a colour range consistent with the soaps' perfume while creating a beautiful harmony range.

The naming of the brand was chosen to reflect the intrinsic qualities of the products. The flower of life (fleur) as a symbolic and inseparable symbol of the brand's visual identity, and the jewel case (écrin) to emphasize the precious qualities of its products: a ritual of care that contains many benefits for the body and the mind.

ROCHE MAZET - PACKAGING DESIGN


PACKAGING DESIGN

Roche Mazet, brand of the Castel Frères group, is a family-run company which produces wines from the pays d’Oc and shares it passion for the French soil since 1998.

For the summer of 2017, we created an innovative box to magnify its bag-in-box range with a precise meaning and function, while remaining in line with its values: a wine of quality and accessible to the greatest.

We chose to go beyond its practical aspect by bringing an added value to underline its difference and by creating a shared enjoyment with the accessory. We created an innovative box, which will be used for its 7 references: 2 reds, 2 whites and 3 rosés.

After studying everything that could have been done in this sector, we worked on several essential criterias: making it unique as much as practical, aesthetic and playful, matching with a wide audience in various situations.

Aesthetic by the object’s purity and simplicity, which can be placed on any table, from a chic buffet to a summer picnic.
Practical thanks to its carrying handle and its elevation, facilitating the service to the glasses without tilting neither the BIB nor the accessory.

Playful by its pivoting function, which creates an effect of surprise during moments of sharing, while facilitating the insertion of the BIB and the access to the tap: an accessory that remains faithful to the spirit of the brand.

PARIS CROISSANT - GLOBAL DESIGN


GLOBAL DESIGN AND COMMUNICATION

The SPC Korean group is an entity which mainly operates in the food industry, notably in the bakery and confectionary sectors, and holds the Paris Baguette, Paris Croissant and Shany brands.
It entrusted us with the global design of their most premium brand, which counts more than 20 shops in Asia and worldwide: Paris Croissant.
Our mission relied on bringing our premium French touch in all communication mediums.

Creation of a new identity for the Paris Croissant brand:
Paris being the French capital of bakery and pastry, we drew our inspiration from the ancient Parisian bakeries’ style, to conceive the new Paris Croissant identity.
The typography has been refined through two approaches: tradition and modernity.
The wheat symbol is included to reinforce the brand’s universe. It has been graphically designed in several ways, including a pattern, which can be used either in print communication or in space design. The different versions of the logotype have been conceived for each communication medium to create a strong and coherent visual identity.

Creation of a new packaging identity:
Our concept: the French art de vivre. French people share a way of life inherited from their culture. They appreciate wandering, looking at historical monuments, having coffee, going shopping…
Going to Paris Croissant means stepping into French culture. It is about taking the time to taste a good pastry in a decor that is built to immerse you in the heart of the French capital. It implies engaging oneself in tourism and discovering the city through the packaging specifically conceived to match with the brand’s universe.
We declined this new packaging and merchandising concept for the Christmas and Valentine’s Day festivities, selecting the most accurate monuments for each theme.
To establish coherence between the new brand image and the boutiques, SPC also entitled us with the decor of a flagship boutique in the French neighbourhood of Seoul: Seorae.

ROSÉ NO. 8 - CHAMPAGNE AYALA - UNIQUE VINTAGE


PACKAGING DESIGN

Visual identity and packaging of the Ayala Rosé No. 8 unique vintage.

Our aim was to create a visual identity and packaging that would express both the values of a great champagne house and the intrinsic qualities of an exceptional wine.

That is why we have set up a relationship between the container (packaging design) and the content (the wine) to build our creative concept.

No. 8 was selected to reflect the rarity, excellence and precision that typify this special vintage. The sensuous curves of the packaging, the bottle and the label all emphasise refinement, elegance and femininity, which are the signatures of the cellar master Caroline Latrive.

The light, ethereal and festive characteristics of the Art Deco patterns are a nod to the 1920s, the golden age of Ayala. The fresh colours and voluptuously curved geometric shapes have been selected to create brand codes that are easily recognizable and applicable to all publicity material.

The chalk colour and textured paper are evocative of the limestone of the precious terroir and its features.

KAVALAN TAIWANESE WHISKY


PACKAGING DESIGN

Drawing on the famous Taipei 101 tower in Taiwan, the Kavalan bottle has an original shape that stands out immediately. That reference to the local architecture was the starting point of our packaging research. Taiwan combines technical efficiency and innovation with traditional Chinese curved roofs, bright colours and nested lines. Keeping that blend of tradition and modernity in mind, we have decided to work on simple shapes that refer to the contours of contemporary monuments to which we have added subtlety that will become the signature of the brand. The edge at the top of our boxes is curved, in a nod to the dynamic of oriental roofs, associated to the cultural symbol of elegance and vitality.

Like the fronts of both old and modern buildings, particularly that of the Kavalan distillery, our packs have been given a geometrical finish.

Clean lines that work with each other, colours of natural elements and rhythmic curves create a range effect while giving each product its own identity through effects
and finishes.

Since 2011, the agency has been revisiting the codes of many Maison du Whisky brands, experts of rare bottles and exclusive distributors of the brand in Europe. www.lmdw.com

SIX-YEAR OLD VINTAGE VIRGINIE T. CHAMPAGNE


VISUAL IDENTITY AND PACKAGING DESIGN

For VIRGINIE T., her own brand of exceptional mature vintages, Virginie Taittinger was looking for a visual identity and packaging that would be consistent with the two key values of her House:
- Innovation, which is reflected both in the way the champagne is made and in its exclusive distribution via the website of the brand: www.champagnevirginiet.com
- Traditional ancestral know-how, which is so specific to great champagnes

Classical patterns in a Second Empire style have been livened up by bright colours that reflect the modernity of the packaging innovation: a case that turns into a champagne bucket and can hold chilled water for several hours. Thanks to thermochromic ink, the VIRGINIE T. marking at the back of the bottle changes from white to red when the ideal serving temperature of 8°C is reached.

The tasting box
The box features a different cover for each product, to create differentiation. The pattern can be seen via the window on the facing.

The tasting set
Design of a wooden serving board that fits seamlessly into the box door, with a rounded end to make it easier to hold.
