Bottle Stories The neutral design language allowed for Steklarna- the leading bottle manufacturer in Europe, to open their design portfolio to multiple alcohol brands. With a very quick turnaround time, our team submitted three designs for bottles that told stories of their own – stories that could be adapted by any brand to characterise their alcohol. The primary research began with the type of alcohol each bottle was to represent and cultures that they could talk about. While Valkyrie derives its origin from the Norse culture, Sin’s design is a constant reminder that all beginnings have an end. Carat draws inspiration from the bold, bejeweled, fashion trends that the turn of the 20th century hip-hop culture brought about. From ideation through sketching to storytelling, the designs ensured respect for the spirits that they embodied.
