PopSop: Monthly design news roundup

We’ve compiled the list of 13 latest works by some leading UK (and Russian) design agencies released over the past month. 

1. Bluemarlin has designed packaging for Square Mile London Dry Gin owned by  the City of London Gin Distillery. The design capitalises on the distillery’s location within the city known as the Square Mile. London’s sprawling streets are screen printed directly on the round bottle reflecting both the premium and historic aspects of brand’s personality. The super premium one-shot 70CL gin launched yesterday in London.


2. Slice Design has created structural and graphic design for a new range of Indian cooking sauces Little Turban. The solution was a resealable pouch ‘Mari-Bag’.


3. ButterflyCannon has designed  Hennessy Very Special gift packs. There are two types of carton gifts packs: one containing glasses and the other a miniature bottle of Hennessy Black (for the US market only). The new Hennessy gift packs are available globally starting October 2014.


4. JDO has continued its partnership with Shepherd Neame, the Kent based brewery, to expand the Whitstable Bay range. The agency created the original brand design and architecture for the range that comprised Whitstable Bay Pale Ale, Whitstable Bay Blonde lager and Whitstable Bay Organic ale.


5. Pearlfisher has created a web app for the charity Haller, designed to give African farmers and their children in Kenya hands-on, relevant farming knowledge and solutions to help them live better self-sustainable lives.

The website application was designed in collaboration with the creative software workshop, Red Badger.


6.  FITCH has created a new design concept for the Dogs Trust, a new rehoming dog centre in Manchester. The agency was aimed to create a warm atmosphere with a distinct ‘village’ feel and a place where families can go to visit, explore and have fun alongside rehoming a rescue dog.


7. London-based studio Designers Anonymous has developed the visual identity and the website for a new challenger brand among aloe vera healthy drinks, ‘Simplee Aloe.’


8. Depot WPF has re-designed packaging for the Nestle-owned chocolate sweets range “Liubimyie Deserty” (“Favourite desserts”), part of an umbrella brand “Rossiya—schedraya dusha.”


9. Seymour Powell has re-designed dry eye relief brand packaging for Bausch + Lomb’s Artelac. The new design repositions the brand making it easier to identify the different types of products in the range, while also creating impact and increased appeal in the self-select, consumer focused market.


10. Elmwood has created brand identity for a new Yorkshire-based trauma charity Day One. The agency has conceived a complete identity for Day One including its name, tone of voice, branding, and visuals, which would work across launch banners, posters, stationery, web design, information packs and event t-shirts.


11. Bulletproof has created a contemporary new packaging design and brand architecture for Norway’s leading chocolate brand Freia, as part of a complete ‘brand world’ review. Bulletproof was briefed to create a new positioning for the brand that could be reflected through a masterbrand identity.


12. R Design has created packaging design for KNORR® Soupissime Instant™, a range of instant soups for the French market.


13. Nude has designed packaging for The Glenlivet Winchester Collection, 50 Year Old single malt Scotch whiskies. Each bottle is uniquely numbered and has been hand-crafted to an extraordinary quality by artisans of the British Isles.

The very first bottle of Vintage 1964 from The Winchester Collection went on sale at Harrods in October 2014. Only 100 bottles will be available for purchase, with a price tag of $25,000 for the first Vintage.
