Marisco Vineyards - The Kings Series
"This was my response to an open brief from my client, to create a brand for a series of wines that would link their Marlborough (NZ) vineyard to the proprietor's pirate ancestors from Lundy Island (UK).
After being helicoptered out to the island to photograph and research my client's ancestral history, I returned to New Zealand and came up with the name for each - relating to a specific story discovered in that research. The names were then also matched to the characteristics of a specific wine variety. A top NZ calligrapher, Peter Gilderdale was then invited to create the stunning calligraphy that features on the labels (authentic to the relevant 12th &13th century period of history, but with bit of a modern twist)."
