Moonshine Meadery

Identity  , Nomenclature  , Packaging
Ronin Wines, Pune FMCG

Branding and packaging for an alcohol brand. Considering the ambition of being Asia’s First Meadery, there was a need to create an identity that was distinct yet neutral enough to allow the brand to scale across geographies. The inspiration for the identity is drawn from alphabet charts used in Kindergarten, where word associations like “A for Apple” and “B for Ball” are first formed.

It connects with words that are seminal in language and learning and ties in to the association of Moonshine Meadery being the the first of its kind and a true pioneer. While solid colours were used to segregate the types of flavours, the identity is type centric in terms of design. The usage of a red line in the primary identity also features across multiple communication touch points.

PIZZ-O

Glide

Brand Strategy  , Communication  , Identity  , Nomenclature

The challenge was to integrate the old with the new. Since it wasn’t possible to strip down the previous structures, a metal panel cladding system was proposed.

Goyal & Co, Ahmedabad Real Estate

The visual treatment of the line form also gives the symbol a sense of continuity and the elegance of an emblem.
