Kirin Beer Bottle Redesign
Client: Portfolio Project: Kirin Beer Bottle Redesign Brief: To update the Kirin beer packaging to appeal to a younger more professional audience while maintaining the rich heritage of the brand. Execution: I chose a much cleaner and simplified approach to the appearance of the Kirin bottle to appeal to an audience who is usually very enamoured with minimalist features in their lives. I kept the use of gold through the design, however I changed the background from white to red, which signifies wealth and prestige in Japanese culture. The 'Kirin' I changed from an illustration to a gold emboss on both the main and neck labels to further the feel of class and expensive taste. As Japanese culture is very popular, I increased the presence of the Japanese text, but also gave it a more traditional feel by making it more calligraphic as opposed to just a font.
SWATT Design Ltd. is an independent graphic design studio based in Hampshire UK, specialising in targeted bespoke graphic design and marketing for print. Our mission is to help our clients and their products to look their best through targeted, creative graphic design in the form of branding, advertising, packaging, and print literature. We understand that sometimes things can get lost in translation, especially when dealing with creative. Which is why we don't use account managers like a lot of the big agencies; you deal directly with the designer who is creating your material from brief right through to final production. This also keeps our overheads nice and low so you not only get great design, but you get it at a competitive price too. We value honesty, integrity, and quality; and feel that these values should never be compromised by budget. We strive to not only meet your design requirements but to exceed them through understanding you, your business, and your customer as thoroughly as our own. Then taking that understanding and crafting it into design that makes a real difference.
