Student Work – Hannah Hart

lovely-package-hannah-hart-1

Designed by Hannah Hart | Country: United States | Pair with: Scotch & Soda

“For this project I was assigned to create alcohol packaging, so I chose to do Mexican tequila. As I did my initial research, I was very inspired by the culture, arts and history of Mexico, specifically Talavera. Talavera is the word used to identify the beautiful handmade pottery and fine ceramics that are trademarks of Mexican craftsmanship.

Just as Mexican Talavera was created with strict standards and regulations in order to preserve the expert nature of its craft, I expect every bottle of my tequila to be crafted in this same way; with precise ingredients and regulations that go into making every bottle a beyond tasteful experience.

To give each bottle of tequila the utmost feeling of prestige, I incorporated an important element in Mexican culture and history: Mayan gods. Religion played an enormous role in talavera ceramics so I wanted to make these characters come to life on each bottle in a sophisticated, yet lively way. I drew a series of illustrations on what I believed the Mexican gods would look like. The gods that are seen on the substrates are: Yum Kaax, The God of Nature; Chaac: The God of Rain; and Kinich Ahau: The God of the Sun. The illustrations were then transferred to the bottles using acetone and touched up by hand with a sharpie.”

For the production of the chocolate bars we collaborated with La Campana.”

Run Playing Cards

lovely-package-run-playing-cards-1

Designed by Chris Yoon | Country: United States | Pair with: Band of Outsiders

“Raw, unruly attitude meets new-school design. Defiantly decked in gold foil from front to back, Run features a bold design that drives home the pure essence of the hit-and-run survivor.

The Run playing card deck features a fully custom design with a protective hard case, embossing, stylized pips, and a full range of familiar yet updated court cards. Every inch of detail embodies the gambler’s attitude and nerves of steel.”

“After the score, there’s only one thing to do…run.”

Cervecería de Colima

lovely-package-cerveceria-de-colima-1

Designed by Anagrama | Country: Mexico

“La Cervecería de Colima” is a new Mexican brewery located in the town of “El Trapiche” in the state of Colima in Mexico. The brewery dedicates all its hard work into perfecting its three unique handcrafted beers for international sale and distribution.

Our branding proposal is a modern visual translation of every distinguished traditional element from Colima and its surroundings, such as its magnificent local Colima volcano. We developed a friendly, simple-looking brand that honours the human touch and workmanship behind every product.

Three craft beers were brewed to mark the beginning of the brand’s legacy. First, the main one: Colimita, the beer from the earth and favorite of the sun. Second, Páramo, a Pale Ale inspired by the whisperings in the streets of Comala. And finally, Ticús, relative of the crow, Cervecería de Colima’s dark beer. From light to dark labels and bright colored caps, the bottles’ design resemble the uniqueness and the hard work behind each individual brew.”

Pablo & Rusty’s

lovely-package-pablo-and-rustys-1

Designed by Manual | Country: United States

“Pablo & Rusty’s is an award-winning small-batch coffee roaster based in Sydney, Australia. They strive to find amazing coffee; determine the best way to roast it; take it to one of their four stores and deliver an exceptional experience to their customers. Pablo & Rusty’s have a strong company culture, are passionate about sustainability, and are in constant pursuit of perfection.

Pablo & Rusty’s approached Manual to rebrand the company and better reflect the values they’d developed over the past decade. An immersion into the brand began with a brief research trip to Sydney to learn more about local coffee culture and experience Pablo & Rusty’s retail locations.”

lovely-package-pablo-and-rustys-2 lovely-package-pablo-and-rustys-3 lovely-package-pablo-and-rustys-6 lovely-package-pablo-and-rustys-5

“Manual then created a complete brand identity, and applied it to key retail and packaging elements. We began by taking inspiration from the core of their business—the humble coffee sacks and stencil typography often found printed on them—and reinterpreted this as modern, sophisticated custom-drawn logotype. In our research we discovered that many of their customers and staff referred to them as ‘P&R’ for short, so we recommended building on that brand recognition and created a monogram that would work at small sizes. This duality in naming and branding provided the backbone for all print, packaging, and retail design elements.

The simple use of typography and restrained color palette provided the appropriate level of design sophistication, and allowed the cafe experience–and coffee–to remain the focus.”
