Deja Vu Sake Company Identity by Argonaut Studio

Deja Vu Sake Company

View Project

Australia’s first high-profile Sake importing company. Requiring
an identity befitting its Japanese pedigree, the solution used a combination of memorable typography, a master vignette that
all collateral colour was drawn from and reflective finishes to
achieve brand memorability.

Argonaut_Lansdowne_Road_Packaging

Lansdowne Road

Our intuitive position for Lansdowne Road was to align the
brand with a fresh modern aesthetic. We took this as our
starting point and commissioned young image makers
(graphic designers, illustrators, artists) to create designs
across the total wine portfolio.

Spicers Self Adnesive Branding by Argonaut Studio

Spicers Self Adhesive

View Project

In repositioning the Manter range of self-adhesive label stocks,
our methodology was to underpin the design with a cohesive graphic narrative. In this case a vintage packaging aesthetic
with modern colour and print finish sensibilities.

In designing labels for these wines from New Zealand, Black
Birch required a strong graphic personality in order to elevate
itself above the plethora of competing New Zealand wine
brands. The result is an identity which makes it immediately
recognisable.

McCormick House Wine Packaging by Argonaut Studio

Willow Creek Vineyard
McCormick House

When commissioned to conceive the McCormick House identity and packaging we approached it as an opportunity to question conventional wine packaging earmarked for the Chinese market. The establishment of a comprehensive Discovery/Research document at the early stages of the project directed the studio towards designing a more vibrant and engaging graphic vocabulary, one more suited to a growing market of young Chinese urban professionals.

Specialising in cashmere, Alessandra is a fashion house based
in Melbourne. Our original remit was to develop a new logotype and core identity elements, however, this has now evolved into art-direction, full website design (with e-commerce platform)
and printed collateral.

Argonaut_Friends_of_Punch_Packaging

Punch
Friends of Punch

Friends of Punch was born following the loss of the 2009
vintage at Lance’s Vineyard during the Victorian bushfires.
Our response to the situation was to plan a concise strategy
for the establishment of a new brand, naming, identity,
packaging and supporting animation. The label designs
received a 2010 AGDA Finalist Award which contributed
to the success of the brand.

Cape Barren

View Project

Under new leadership, this noted McLaren Vale wine producer required a full review of its existing core identity. We purposely chose to embrace the existing Goose illustration in order to preserve brand equity whilst opting for a modern approach.
Art direction for the website was used to dramatic effect in order to lift the proposition above the mundane. Interestingly, our latest engagement with Cape Barren has been to assist the curation of content and coding for their blog.

Wine packaging for Melbourne retailer Armadale Cellars. For
the studio, it was a question of designing a simple but effective identity that would bring this negociant brand to a broader public.

Pine Wine Packaging by Argonaut Studio

Pondalowie Vineyards
Pinga

With an illustration sourced from Rhyll Plant (wood engraver
and honorary associate of Museum Victoria), we were able
to design a wine label that is a deliberate pastiche of the contemporary Spanish packaging aesthetic. The irony not
being lost that the brand is based in Bendigo, Victoria.
