I remember when I was young I was given a toy that was pretty much the same as these wine bottles. There was a blank face and removable stickers so that you could make silly faces again and again. I guess that's why this branding appeal to me. I like the idea of making faces that reflect the character of the wine. Sharp, mellow, sweet etc.
Completely impractical, space wasting, and utterly cute, funny and desirable! I wouldn't choose to make something like this for my own business, but I admire what they have done hugely!
Rather than lift the images, this post says it all about some clever packaging solutions for sending absolutely anything through the post.
Before that happens, I'd like to show the steps I made developing my current little gift bags.
I scanned it in to the computer. It took me 5 seconds to pull the images and text from another document to put on the bag. It took me an awful lot longer to create the straight lines!
The three sizes made up! At this point I took a good look at them (ignoring the bad print quality, my printer keeps spewing out splodges of ink all over the place at the moment.) I didn't like the side joint being at the front seam of the bag, and the bottom looked a bit messy too.
Cut and folded in readiness.
And, folded at the sides to create the bag shape.
I'm really looking forward to when they've run out and I can get creative and come up with some really exciting ideas!
