Duke of Delhi packaging design

Duke of Delhi packaging design5 Duke of Delhi packaging design

London based design agency Bright Green Brands created this lovely packaging design and visual identity for the Duke of Delhi, mixing the rich culture of India with a hint of Britishness. The illustrations where created by Vanessa Wright

Barney Bryant has the following to say about the process:

“While pondering on the new identity I wondered who the Duke of Delhi might be: Was he an Englishman in India, or an Indian in England? And how would he travel? I decided that a horse-drawn royal carriage would be suitable in Britain or, if in India, then by royal elephant. Seeing my sketches in front of me, it just suddenly seemed the most obvious thing to do – put the two together, mixing the eccentricities of both cultures in one simple logo.”

Having had success with the biscuit packaging, Bright Green Brands where asked to create a new product – Delhi Mix – a Bombay mix with a quirky British twist, packaged in ‘tif in-style tins.

Viet Ha Beer packaging design

VietHa Beer packaging design Viet Ha Beer packaging design

Whilst working at Richard Moore Associates, Linh Lee had the chance to work on the brand identity and packaging design of Viet Ha beer, which is based in Vietnam.

The new design not only had to be modernised, but also had to transmit both a friendly and authentic feeling to its target audience. The beer’s symbol originates from the Don Son bronze drum and features the Lacviet bird. By redesigning the bird and adding the two barley strands it communicated a more sophisticated beer language. Parts of the Don Son bronze drum was also used to create patterns which were placed around the beer can. The word mark kept its red colour and it received a embossed look. A custom slab type was designed and replaced the previous condensed font. One element which I think is a shame that was lost are the diacritical marks over the “e” and “a”. From a visual point of view it would have been more authentic Vietnamese if they would have included them. Having said that, I’m no expert in Vietnamese language.

 

What do you think of the redesign?
