COMTESSE DU BARRY - DESIGN PACKAGING


Comtesse du Barry box

PACKAGING DESIGN

Comtesse du Barry has been growing and evolving for more than a century. The Maison blew out this year its 100 candles. Such beautiful years during which the company imagined, conceived, produced and proposed French premium gastronomic delights.

On the occasion of its 100th anniversary, Comtesse du Barry assigns us many gourmet and festive innovations (from the packaging to the showcase) for its customers‘enjoyment.

Echoing the precious Art Deco motifs which symbolize the festivities of 1908,
the Christmas 2018 collector boxes open onto a world of elegance that fits perfectly with the iconic delicacies of the brand.

Gabrielle box
We created a prestige box to pay tribute to Gabrielle Dubarry, founder of the House : Gabrielle, an exceptional goose foie gras imagined in a limited edition. This signature foie gras is presented in a prestigious setting, the “secret trunk”.

Terrine box
There’s no doubt that the magic of the Christmas period can be found in its collection of terrine, fully redesigned with art deco patterned drawers.

Advent calendar
Over time, a new surprise is revealing each morning... In order to make the wait for Christmas a real pleasure, we imagined a graphic and gourmet calendar that takes the form of a shop as we could have found 110 years ago.

This openable calendar delivers all its delicious secrets and enhances the effect of surprise as each calendar contains a ticket to win.

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.

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.

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.
