Italian design agency Happycentro recently design this cool Italian inspired packaging for Sabadì – I Torroni

“Traditionals Torroni (nougats) directly from the heart of Sicily, with Slow Food raw materials. With a perfect balance between honey, pistachios, almonds and citrus zest this Torroni are the ideal treat for satisfy your sweet tooth.
Sicily is a marvelous place, a melting pot where several idioms, art forms and flavors could mix and influence each other. There we started, from the idea of composing visually and metaphorically that environment, made of various rich narrative elements.
Sabadì always starts by picking the best raw materials, tiles of a tremendous mosaic of flavors that we translate in a mosaic of stories to tell. Stories that come from the ground, sprout in the countryside, spread through the streets, the squares, the fountains, the churches, the palaces, the places, the people.
Each bar is a chapter, made of four, and when placed side by side the entire story is a wonderful panorama.”

South Korean rice wine packaging - Ahwang-ju

 

“Uigwe” from Joseon Dynasty

 

South Korean design studio ContentFormContext created the Ahwang-ju rice wine packaging.

“Ahwang-ju is Korean traditional clear rice wine based on the original recipe from the Korea, 1000 years ago, restored by Haeng-sook Choi, the master of Miin brewery Korea. Tradition says that people in the royal court used to make Ahwang-ju quite often during the Joseon Dynasty. We researched “Uigue”, a collection of Royal Protocols of the over 500 year-long Joseon Dynasty, that both records and prescribes the major ceremonies and rites of the royal family. “Uigwe” inspired us to create labels illustrating the royal court ceremony.”
