Meeta Panesar Wine Label Designs
Meeta Panesar’s wine bottle designs were created as an homage to the Op Art movement and the work of artist Joseph Albers. Panesar carried that Op Art tradition into these conceptual wine labels, some flush with color and geometry, others with tightly wrapped black-and-white lines. While Meeta Panesar’s wine labels remain a packaging art concept, we’d love to see his work commissioned and produced.
Gut Oggau Portrait Wines
The Oggau Estate is an Austrian winery that has given its wine more than just a flavor, but a personality… nine of them, to be exact. The Gut Oggau Portrait Wines labels were designed by Jung von Matt to give each Oggau wine it’s own unique signature. Jung von Matt explains: “Just like every man, every wine has its own individual character ranging from young to mature, from playful to complex. We assigned a face, a story and a name to these different attributes. Eventually, this led to a typical family clan with grandparents, parents and children.
Honey Moon Wine
While we’ve never had the palette for sweet wines, this bottle by designer Lauren Golembiewski has our sweet tooth a-humming. Golembiewski created the Honey Moon Wine concept as an annual gift to past and prospective clients in celebration of a budding summer. The “honey moon” is the first full moon of the month of June, known as the perfect moment to begin the harvest of honey. While the bottle is certainly an achievement of its own, Golembiewski also created the honey moon font as shown in the gallery below.
Mini Garage Winery
As long as you don’t store these wines in your garage (especially next to the turpentine), you’re in for a tasty treat of packaging design. The Mini Garage Wines and Brandies by Anthony Hammond have a literal conception– Hammond’s wine is produced in a former tractor shop in Germany. The packaging is amongst the most creative on this list, although we’re skeptical on their ability to preserve the original flavor of the product. Perhaps its the condition of the rusty turpentine cans in our own garage
Shefa Profusion Wine
The word “Shefa” translates from Hebrew as “profusion”, with these wines named as such for their youthful abundance. The Shefa Profusion Wines are flush with Hebrew iconography and imagery, giving these a decidedly Middle Eastern appearance. While little is known about the waters within, the bottles themselves certainly have an intoxicating effect
The Wine Case Lamp by Ciclus
In a society where consumption nearly always ends with waste, the Wine Case Lamp is a bold statement. After you finish this bottle, its case can be constructed into a fully functional (and well-designed) slatted lamp. Just pop the cork, fill up a few glasses and let there be light.
Vine Parma Wine
Designer Raya Ivanovskaya has put a wealth of cultural flavor into the Vine Parma Wine design. Wrapping around this bottle are hieroglyphics, totems and a mystic language telling tales of times past. Inserted subtly into this design are the basic details about the wine– including a bar code, distribution information, alcohol content and more. This is more than just a wine bottle, it’s a work of art…
