ButterflyCannon: Glenmorangie Companta design

Brand: Glenmorangie CompantaTitle(s): ButterflyCannon: Glenmorangie CompantaHeadline and copy text (in English): ButterflyCannon create packaging design for Glenmorangie’s fifth annual Private Edition release, Companta.Agency: ButterflyCannon, London, UKAgency website: http://www.butterflycannon.com/Creative Director: Jon DaviesPublished: January 2014Short rationale (optional): The design was inspired both by the beautiful vaulted cellar ceilings, and the union of the vineyards and people that together help to create this rare and special whisky. In his quest for perfection, Glenmorangie’s Director of Whisky Creation Dr Bill Lumsden, was inspired by those he has met during his travels to the most renowned Burgundy vineyards. He has attributed this whisky, that speaks of a celebration of kindred spirits, to them and their shared philosophy of the pursuit of perfection. Derek Ruediger, Brand Manager at Glenmorangie comments, “As we proceed with our fourth year working with ButterflyCannon we are thrilled to begin with the release of this exciting design for our fifth Private Edition. ButterflyCannon have brought the warmth and depth of the whisky and its story to life in their packaging design whilst creating a beautiful reference to the wine cellars of France.”Jon Davies, Creative Director at ButterflyCannon adds, “It has been a pleasure transforming the unique story of this Glenmorangie expression. Creating a design that took inspiration from a product truth and symbolised the coming together of friends was a wonderful challenge.”The release of Glenmorangie Companta has been eagerly awaited following the huge success of last year’s release, Glenmorangie Ealanta, named ‘2014 World Whisky of the Year’ by Jim Murray. The new release will be available globally as from January 2014.

Pentagram New York: Saks Fifth Avenue 'LOOK'

Brand: Saks Fifth AvenueTitle(s): LOOKAgency: Pentagram New York Agency Website: http://www.pentagram.comProject Team: Partner-in-charge and designer: Michael Bierut; Designer: Jesse ReedPublished: 2013Short Rationale (optional): The Fall 2013 campaign for Saks Fifth Avenue showcases the luxury retailer as the ultimate place for fashion discovery. Designed by Pentagram’s Michael Bierut and team, the campaign uses the word “LOOK” as a bold, attention-getting graphic motif that invites shoppers to explore the store and its style. The “LOOK” wordmark was designed as custom typography and appears in the signature black and white of the store identity. Repeated as a pattern on shopping bags and catalogues, the simple, geometric letterforms become a highly graphic texture that literally makes you look. In keeping with the theme of discovery, the letters can be used as mini-portals to focus on clothes, jewellery and accessories. Some letters are die-cut on catalogue covers to show a peek of the first page inside; other applications place images within the letterforms, for a closer look. For the designers, the challenge of the Saks seasonal campaigns is they must coordinate with the store’s overall identity; a “LOOK” bag still has to read as a Saks bag. This usually means that, in addition to being black and white, the designs are modular, and often based in squares like the master identity. The campaigns must also serve as a frame for a wide range of specific merchandise, including single items and groups of items; and in different contexts, like print, advertising, and in-store merchandising. This often leads to simple motifs that can withstand an endless range of applications. Previous campaigns have used objects, arrows, the store’s Twitter handle, and flowcharts. For the new campaign, Bierut and his team had the added challenge of coming up with another way to design the word “LOOK,” having previously solved this problem for the New York City Department of Transportation.
