Shirah Wine Label


First time posting something I've designed - this is a wine label I did for Conflict of Interest - an upstart winery in California that likes to do things a little bit different. One of the winemakers happens to be my brother. This is a fabulous Syrah wine - big, bold flavor and intense dark color. It's not being sold retail, but this is the group's first foray into the wonderful world of wine; they've only produced 300 bottles. The label was printed in letterpress by Porridge Papers.

I specified white ink on gray uncoated paper (from Gilbert). It's interesting how the ink is translucent, so in some lighting it doesn't even look printed. Here, the contrast is pretty good (shot the bottles outdoors on an overcast day.)
