I made this wine label and package for our good friend Brigitte’s birthday. As we usually meet her at the campground in Corsica, I decided to include that in the design of the bottle label and the packaging tube.
The wine label was done by scanning a Bordeaux label and erasing & redesigning most of it.
Finding the right font and paper stock was quite a thing, I’m very picky here.
Then instead of the grapevines of the original label I recreated our holiday beach as an antique etching.
For the tube I used a Drambuie whisky tube made of cardboard and designed a new wrapping, honoring Brigitte in French in the text below the lower red band.
The best thing with this packaging gig was when I gave it to her 🙂
And also when many of the other birthday party guests didn’t realize it was a custom, hand made thing.
