    Create label designs for spirit’s different fruit flavours. The identity should translate the high quality of spirit and is expected to have a premium look.


    solution

    Sunlight is an essential ingredient for plant growth. Based on this fact, we came up with a legend in which each fruit has its own god of sun who is stimulating its growth. Gods and goddesses of Sun used their sacred energy to accomplish the creation of fruits and no human was ever participant in that celebration of life. The word “Kensatu” in Armenian means “life-giving”, that's what the celebration symbolized: Gods giving life to their offsprings consuming their abundance and becoming invigorated eventually to be gladfully served to the earthly men as creatures of pleasure.  
    On the shelf, the tastes are distinguished by different portraits that were carried out through a hand-drawing technique to illustrate the original characters.
