martin.campion got their new product label by running a design contest:
Subtle, yet effective modernisation of existing wine label design
Check out martin.campion's Product label contest…
Food & Drink
Mail order and internet wine merchant, based in the UK, largely selling under the name of Laithwaite's Wine (UK / EU), The Wall Street Journal Wine Club (US) and Wine People (Australia). Our target audience are wine-savvy consumers and those who have graduated from the supermarkets and want something more. Broadly speaking they are C1 upwards and tend to be mid-thirties and older. Most sales are direct to the consumer, off the page / web. A tiny % of UK sales take place from our 12 shops.
What's your vision?
We would like one of our existing Australian ranges, The Full Fifteen, to be redesigned. THE AIM: modernise the current labelling without losing the essential essence of the current design. The successful design will evolve the present pack in such a way that the bottles remain instantly recognisable when flicking through an offer, yet less "seventies". Bottle shapes won't change. The current packs can be seen on the Laithwaite's Wine website: • a red (PLEASE START WITH THIS ONE) • a Chardonnay • a sparkling red There is also a Special Reserve red, which may or may not be redesigned depending upon the outcome of this brief. COLOUR: Please keep the same sort of colours when redesigning the labels. We don't want to stray too far from the existing designs.
All labels will be the same layout, it's just that the type will change (Classic Red, Chardonnay etc.) We are looking for a subtle, yet effective modernisation of the current designs (attached), in order to render the packs more premium in appearance. PLEASE NOTE: I’d like to see first designs based on the RED WINE as that is by far and away the biggest seller (and the first wine we had in the range). The range is one of our very biggest sellers, hence this needs a sensitive hand to ensure the redesign is not too radical, yet achieves its objectives. Consider this to be a premium estate brand.
