A reader of mine requested some wine inspired design. I have no problem with that request. The thing I love about wine labels (or packaging in general) is that it’s a super simple design. Not technically, but functionally. You could just throw wine in a bottle and put “wine” in black and white on the bottle in the most boring typeface possible (not to say that wouldn’t be cool in a minimalist way). It’s like a tiny piece of art that just anyone can buy and own, even if it’s for a short time. It’s functional, it’s cool, and after your drink’s gone you still have a friggin’ sweet bottle.
So here is a collection of some of wine labels you probably won’t see in a grocery store, and some you might.
