Lunar Vine



Death By Colour’s design
for Lunar Vine caught my attention with its stained glass ornaments and strong colour palett, which certainly lives up
to the name of the studio. After some trouble identifying the vinery, I learned
that the wine packaging was not a real product at all. It’s what kept Micheal Lonergan
busy when the projects at work weren’t piling up on his desk. If you happen to
have some time to burn, with the economy the way it is, consider following Michael's example. Design something
extraordinary, to keep yourself occupied, inspired and to keep your portfolio fresh. Here’s Michael’s description
of the project:

 “Lunar Vine was
born from trudging through Tesco's wine isles every Friday night with my
girlfriend. I had always loved wine label designs  such as Blossom Hill and many others. But
none of them really jumped out at me from the shelves. I think a wine bottle
should say a lot about what it is. The fruitiness and flavours that are inside
etc. But most of the wine labels out there are bland and play it safe with
abstract landscapes or animals from where the wine originates. So I decided to
address that with Lunar Vine, with the vivid Colours used, I think it would
stand a better chance of being purchased than some of the more established wine
brands out there. The name Lunar Vine was inspired by the use of sunlight in
the production of wine. And how at night on a full moon they are still getting
that small bit of sunlight from the moon - hence Lunar Vine."
