Realism

Came across this label and it really takes me back to my college lecture. I was a fan of my art history classes and this label gives me a sense of realism. Having to think back to my lectures and studio classes all I can recall is Degas. Eward Degas, a french painter who’s style included realism did portray individuals in their element. There are portraits of the female model with her back exposed in Degas’ paintings. This label is a detailed illustration of yhe human form and the title is appropriate, for that little sense of humor.

Throw back to vintage newspapers

This wine label really stood out – I got a newspaper feel. The stacked narrow strip reminds me a newspaper column. I like how the label really occupies more of the bottle than most labels. The stacked text is clean and varied in weight which allows the eye to adjust as you read line by line. The simple black and white label keeps it clean and polished.

Keep it unique

When I saw this bottle it really made an impression and stood out from the shelf. Honestly it was great to see a strong concept speak louder than its design. This shows more character and personality than any font in my font book. I really like the message and how personalized the story is.

Simple details with a twist

This bottle caught my eye from across the room . I really like the simple  ornate details of the bottle. There is a simple image that is tiled and the small detailed display font is used  but the change of angle really make its different from the standard wine label.

Broke A#@ Wine

Found this wine in TN when visiting some family. I had to buy it just because of the name but the simple design stood out to me.  Over the past year and a half wine labels have become more interesting. The simple and witty labels catch my eye the most. The simple shilouete is simple and straight to the point  and  the parchment like background give an aged feel. Having a jack ass donkey with a band-aid on its ass is so simple and funny, it really does work.  Having a simple and somewhat juvenile mindset really does go a long way, its new way of hitting the adults who are young and silly at heart!!!   The wine is a full bodied red with a light peppery after taste.

Its all about the dress

I was in Total Wine looking for some champaing and came a cross this poster. Enza, a Champagne/Sparkling Wine, which I did not end of getting but was impressed with the ornate floral logo design. The fun and flirty logo is very simple and organic and comes off clean  and supplicated for the overall prevention. The use of the box / cropped portion of the design help create the main focal point. But the campaign poster really puts a nice twist on the selling point. Enza, who happen to be Champaign’s sexy Italian cousin really applies to a female human essence that any woman can relate too. Who does want to be that sexy tease and that is clearly presented with the female drawing. Not only with the drawing but with the type design itself, the fun and flirty script font really present a female flair to the wine. But having the logo design applied to the females dress really reiterates the tag line. The depiction is classy and sexy. The woman  is wearing a full length strapless dress, and yes the dress is everything, the dress does help keep this sophisticated. If it was a mini it would be borderline trashy. And with the gentleman being in outlines there is more focus on the woman the effect she has on a man. Sex does sell but this is more than that and is not coming off as a over the top and degrading for women. Its more passionate and in the moment.
