Projects

Wine label design and print

There are many more of which I am proud, but these have a little more concept.
The Dornier black label has their signature head - which can also be seen in their full logo - converted into a line drawing which would in turn be spot varnished and embossed on the label to create a lovely texture. That specific one did not make print.
The To Life labels were for a low price export wine.
