1st Place in the Non-Alcoholic Beverage category, The Dieline Awards 2014. “Ridna Marka (Native Brand) is a new Ukrainian juice line consisting of four basic flavors: clear apple, orange, tomato and cloudy apple. The inspiration for design, as well as the brand name, has been taking from Soviet style of 60s and 70s. The idea was not just to recreate romantic “look and feel” of grocery in USSR and evoke childhood nostalgia for the older generation. Design should attract young people who know about that time only from the stories of their parents. It is a fact that the childhood memories are always the best. In this case we believe that retro products are perceived as guaranteed quality and particularly tasty.” Designed by Yurko Gutsulyak. Via The Dieline.

Åremjölk – Daily fresh milk from grass-fed cows. The milk is low pasteurized at a local dairy and delivered to the retailer ICA Åre, where it’s sold for 20 SEK/litre. The Customers fill their own bottle, 2dl or 1 L, from a dispenser machine. The milk comes from cows fed 70% with grass, instead of concentrate which usually is the main feed. Grass milk is healthier and also more costly for the farmer, because the cows can only produce half the amount of milk. Apparently the milk tastes delicious and it’s now up to the Åre Customers to decide if the “Grass milk” is here to stay!

Katharina Kobsev is a student from Germany. Her bachelor thesis was to create a concept around food culture and sustainability. “”Think Global-Eat Local” is a collection of food and beverages with the focus on environmental protection. The aim of the bachelor thesis was was to bring awareness to this issue of food culture and the sustainability. The preferred purchase of local and seasonal food and beverages plus a proper handling can significantly contribute to the protection of the world´s resources. Because sustainability is not just about buying organic and fair trade, but consumer behaviour in general. The bachelor thesis includes the development of the concept, logo design, packaging, poster, and calender.”

“We have a coffee roastery and a bar in Södermalm with all the focus on a good cup of coffee. With each cup served comes experience in the accuracy with temperature, equipment, operation, and raw materials in particular. Coffee is a delicate product affecting thousands of people’s lives. We believe that if we pay the farmer a good price for the arduous work to produce the coffee, it will benefit him or her, their families, communities and the local environment.”

Coke Sharing Can

Coca-Cola marketing has long centered around various ways of sharing.  Here is yet another twist on the theme. A temporary campaign; a regular-size Coke that twists apart into two small cans so you can share with a friend. The cans were available in limited quantity during a trial stage via a “happiness truck” in Singapore.

A reusable ceramic bottle keeping the wine cold even in warm weather, from Mer Soleil.

“In 1988 our family planted grapes in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County because we believed it would provide the best growing conditions in California for Chardonnay. We started making Mer Soleil, a barrel fermented Chardonnay in the classic full blown California style. But years later we started to see that the market was also interested in unoaked Chardonnay. That’s when my family and I decided to seize the moment and make a second Chardonnay named “SILVER” that would remain free of oak and made in a classic Chablis style with tropical elements and crisp, pure, mineral essence. Furthermore we decided to age and ferment this wine in stainless steel and natural cement tanks imported from France. But wait… it gets better. After doing a lot of research and planning we also decided to bottle this wine in a ceramic bottle to pay tribute to this winemaking style.

Not only does the bottle help maintain a cool serving temperature but it’s 100% reusable! We’ve seen many people use our ceramic bottle as a decanter, a water pitcher at the dinner table, candle holder, even as a vase for flowers.”

‘Designed by Ehrenstråhle & Wågnert. “Femme Natural Boost is an energy drink that turns to a female audience that, in the current situation, have no alternative available in a product category in which communication signals mostly extreme sports, masculinity and testosterone. The challenge was therefore to develop a package that attracts the audience without, for that matter, alluding to the old image of what is feminine.

Femininity and independence were the key words in the creation of Femme’s brand, which included a complete graphic profile and packaging design. In terms of branding we wanted to express attitude and self- confidence with the female at the heart of it, which sets Femme apart from other competitors in the energy drink market. By working with a saturated yet distinctive color along with hand-drawn typeface, the can got an expression that was feminine without being perceived as cliché-like.”

“Do we need more beer? Well, yeah. Especially if it’s really great beer! That’s what impressed us, Geneva Lake’s attention to detail. Superior ingredients, meticulous brewing conditions yielding unparalleled results. One taste and we knew, this was the real deal. Geneva Lake founded their family brewery in the heart of big beer country. A gutsy stand not for the faint-hearted indeed.”

“Alchemy committed to rebrand this amazing beer in an authentic way, truly worthy of a world-class micro-brew poised to conquer the world — one sip at a time. Water, hops and grain? Meet glass, ink and crimped metal! We strategically specified 24oz. amber bottles and growlers forged with tactile ink-on-glass packaging to convey bold, honest, hand-crafted flavor with attention to detail just like the beer inside. Wisconsin’s finest.” Designed by Alchemy LTD and photography by Andrews Braddy.
