Protagonista – Wine Label Video by the Labelmaker
Protagonista is a brand created by Enosiasti for their custom wine series. I did this video with rotating bottles just to show a good close-up of the label and to let you see every single detail.
In this design I used very elegant and masculine bottle made by the famous French manufacturer Saverglass. The model name is Brodelaise Paradis and on my opinion it is one of their best choices for premium wines like Protagonista.
The label is printed on Avery Dennison’s Canal Blanc paper. I picked this paper because of its elegant debossed lines texture. I like it very much as it perfectly suits for minimalistic designs on large label where the feeling of paper character is almost everything. This particular one was also perfect because the lines create a good feeling for perspective – something quite needed in designs like this.
I also used rich copper hot-foil – excellent for red wines and having good contrast with white paper background.
The figure of King is overprinted with thick transparent puff-up varnish.
In general – I tried to design an amazing wine label standing out among the other with its clean and intriguing idea as well as its elegant composition and balanced embellishments.

‘Seb Lester’ calligraphy – let’s go digital
Seb Lester is a respected artist and talent – hope he was not truly serious with his “Digital is Dead” calligraphy video.
The truth is that the Cintiq is not almighty – there are many traditional techniques that are really hard to be reproduced on digital tablet.
The other side of the coin says that it is also an independent tool in evolution – it might be treated as something different from what we have known so far.
… and at the end – remember what happened with digital cameras and photography :-)))
Enjoy calligraphy – go digital!
