Wine Bottles by nedw Wine Bottles by nedw
The concept here is pretty straightforward:

Wine makers often focus on a straightforward brand, such as kendel jackson, or robert mondavi. This brand of wine focuses on the taste, and quality that goes into their product, letting the taste and quality of the wine speak for itself.

Each letter was designed to reflect the process that the wine goes through as its made, as well as the bouqet of tastes that the wine contains.

I'm thinking about adding a small ring (the color of the top vat sticker) to help transition the black seal into the bottle... Comments/Ideas?

With packaging like Wine Inc. - Wine Bottle Design by =nedw I'd definitely pick this up out of a line up since I don't know wine. I'd rely on colour and packaging and this is just simple and effective. ( Featured by depthskins )

JMG1041 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2014
Cam you help me
My sister is making her own wine and has asked that I make her bottle labels...she has fallen in LOVE with the font on your bottles here...
I have looked for about 2 hours trying to find a similar font but can not determine one... I believe it is the MCR Font? but the ones I find on line are NOTHING like this...Can you please help me...she is so determined to have this....

i don't like wine, but i would collect it based solely on cute bottle art

This site: [link] is using your labels in their header... if nobody knew better they would assume it is the company's design work. Which would be misadvertising.

Thought you might be interested to know.

That's really an impressive design; it must've taken ages to cut out though..? I don't know if you had a simpler way to do that than what I'm thinking of. Very elegant!
The design is charming, and the association that everyone seems to have related to My Chem, is not actually a bad thing to have - haha, fame passed on. Good brand recall there, already. Though, I doubt they'll be placed like that in shops, haha.
The sticker at the top sort of detracts from the overall presentation, though. Maybe if the sticker was black with writing matching the co-ordinated colour? Or not. Haha, I'd buy the wine, though, just for the label. Very nicely done!

Pretty pretty. What a good concept
icyabstractx Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008   Interface Designer
Very pretty. The first time I saw this I immediately thought My Chemical Romance (the band) Lol. But I guess the alphabet placement wasn't deliberate.
Yami-Kamiya Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2008
I love the detailing.
Amazing coincidence My Chemical Romance was playing when this caught my eye.
I bet they would love their own brand of alcohol with labels designed by you
boyack Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2008
I love the bottles! Great design! Congratulations!
powerpuffpopcorn Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2008
I would still love to drink out of these.
joe-cari Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2008
it looks really nice! If a see a bottle like this in a shop, I buy it, for sure ! :+fav:
trickybritt Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2007
Nice! I looooovvve the font you used.
bleedingmirror Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2007   Interface Designer
It's pretty damn sad when half of these comments are "OMG I LOVE MCR!!" gushing about a shitty band they love, rather than giving an actual critique. At least there's a good chance of MCR fading into oblivion in the near future, but.. er, alcohol is forever? ;)

The design is gorgeous. Why the clear bottle for the Riesling- does it have anything to do with the consistency/flavor/etc of the drink itself (I've never tasted Riesling or Chianti, so I wouldn't know.) The black bottles are very sleek; would the label and other info on the back of the bottle be in the same color as the letter on the front?

Great work.

My only crit is that you perhaps change the formation of the letters so retarded teenagers stop squealing over MCR, and perhaps add just a smidge more color- maybe in the neck sticker/label or something.

thanks :)
Ariades Featured By Owner May 17, 2007
I never added this one to my favourites, but I keep on coming back to look at it. What you did, was to make the wine look so much more tempting than all the other bottles you see on the market. Every time I see shops selling wine, you can't help but notice how boring the designs are. If I had seen a bottle with this design on it, it would've been... The elite.

Right away, you get the feeling that "this is something good. This is quality."

And now, it's time to finally favourize.
nedw Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2007   Interface Designer
Your the shit, thanks man.. totally appreciate your comments. Sorry its taken me so long to respond. But I really really appreciate it.

<3 Ned
Ariades Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2007
Heheh, you're very welcome. It's always been a pleasure looking at this design. Wine would be so much more tempting if they had this kind of design. I don't even like wine, but designs like this makes me want to taste more :P

I've been seeing you're busy. Take your time. As long as you get the comment, I suppose it's all fine ;)

Go make something even more beautiful.
ironblueyes Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2007
I like the presentation. The Art Nouveau-like typeface you have crafted and used for the monogram suites the concept and product well. The use of color in your otherwise 'minimalist' approach help to reinforce the gestalt. The use of space is luxurious as well. The craft of the labels on the mouth of the bottles is slightly distracting and seems slightly an after thought. A 'c'-like cut out at the fold on all four sides of the label would put less tension on the fold and make your design flawless.
nedw Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2007   Interface Designer
wow. thanks alot for the feedback. I really appreciate it. I recently had my book looked at by a whole bunch of people and got some really interesting feedback on this piece. I'm sort of organizing my thougthts at the moment, but will be making a few revisions.
ironblueyes Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2007
You are definately welcome. I am trying to leave good feedback for at least one person a week. Currently I am reworking my portfolio in anticipation for my Senior year at CVA, The College of Visual Arts Saint Paul, and to help my professional development as well. Sort of a giving back type of thing but also sharpening my eye in color and design. I really need to update my work on this site, some of it is pretty outdated to my recent work. Let me know if you have other stuff for critique or critique my stuff. Take care.

Juvenilemike Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2007
Hey, I've only read the first page so I'm sorry if I repeat something that's already been said. Unfortunately there's only so many times I can read the 'Oh I thought it was my Chemical Romance' posts before I lose patience. Don't they read the comments? Your patience however seems limitless. Anyway...

The bottles look beautiful. We tend to drink quite a bit of wine here, and I think that you've nailed the classy-modern approach to the graphics on the front. I'd second everyones comments about the white bottle's plastic cap looking off, and whilst I think a vine-y decorative ring might look nice, I also fear it would distract from the main lettering.

A final point. For some reason I want to see some kind of texture. I imagine the graphic to have depth from the paint, and I'd like to see some muslin or other sacking material to compliment it. Perhaps as a carry bag instead of a box? Hmm...
nedw Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2007   Interface Designer
appreciate the feedback....

Yeah, I started getting way annoyed with the MCR stuff, but hey - if someone takes the time to comment, the least I can do is reply.

I dig the idea of the satchel, I'll might give it a shot. It would be pretty neat. to have a clasp with the letter on it, etc..
