I know it seems that I favour my illustration, as I always seem to blog about that rather then design, but that really isn't the case. I tend not to post too much of my design work immediately online, as I generally like to wait until the product/promotion has been fully launched before I do so.
There are some people who like to work on a job and post samples of it immediately in their blogs etc, but it can be a risky thing to do. If I am honest, I don't think doing this is particularly fair on the client who has no doubt spent a lot of money on the project and would certainly not want to have anything leaked online before they launch the product/promotion for themselves. You could also find yourself in all kinds of trouble for doing so, which is why I like to wait.
The project I have posted below is something I worked on at a London agency earlier in the year for the wine brand Wolf Blass.
The brief for this project was simple, they wanted to create a new way of promoting offers on their bottles of wine, which go beyond the more conventional neck labels.
I have included a few of the early scamps I worked on before I went ahead and created the final Mac visuals.
Here are the mocked up Mac visuals for each of the concepts I created.
Some of the concepts were purposely based on the more conventional neck labels that are available, as it is a design that Wolf Blass do favour. I did try to make them a little more dynamic by adding die cut elements to the designs to help them standout in the what is already a very competitive market.
I could go into further detail as to why I approached the brief in the way I did, or how I created certain parts of the design, but unfortunately time is of the essence for me tonight (and to be honest, I am sure you aren't really that bothered). I will be happy to answer any questions you may have on this project though.
I do hope to post some more of my design concepts and visuals on here soon, but in the mean time, why not check out my site by clicking here.
