We started Vida wine brand in 2019 with only two wines in one category. A year later, all went well at the winery and I was commissioned to expand the portfolio with new wine label design featuring the same brand name.

This time I decided to use more calm and classic forms of the label – a semi-wrapping design uniting front and back label in one piece. The main character is the VIDA brand along with the Vida fortress silhouette stamped with gold hot-foil.
Like in the first version of my work, I used my favorite Jade Raster paper as I found it very appropriate for this clean design – its mother of pearl surface is probably the best background for my composition.

I also added a raised varnish border to enhance the border between the white background and the natural paper color.
We used three different types of Burgundy bottles depending on the wine and we also used screw cap or gold capsule depending on the bottle mouth.
As a result, we received a very sleek modern wine label design that is actually the same for all wines but it looks very different as we played with different types of bottles and sealing. We were trying to keep the brand very consistent yet absolutely recognizable in its early years. After a while, this visual foundation will be use for more non-traditional ideas and upgrades.
Our experience began more than 20 years ago – in that time we have successfully created a considerable amount of premium brands – most of them later recognized as some of the icons of Bulgaria’s Wine and Spirits industry. In developing strong and professional visual solutions, we have helped our customers gain popularity, increase sales, and as a result, a return of their investment… more
