Firewood Vodka’s Stand Out Packaging by Constantin Bolimond.

bbaa6440d53c578978bf234405da59cfPackage design is a multifunctional art form. The package must function as a container or vessel for an object, and it must stand out. In the case of liquor packaging, where your product is competing in a sea of similar looking products you need to really stand out. If you have been in a liquor store, or the liquor aisle of your supermarket lately, you might have noticed how most bottles look very similar, and it is a label that attempts to differentiate a brand or product offering. There are exceptions to the rule, and companies like Stranger & Stranger have set the high bar for memorable liquor packaging, but this design from Constantin Bolimond for Firewood Vodka is a true winner.

The package plays off of the brand name, presenting itself as a wooden log. A cut branch is the spot for pouring the vodka. Labeling is debossed and enameled highlighting the logo of a double axe tied into a knot. Visually this is a fantastic play on the name, and an outstanding way to represent the product. There is no way this is going to get lost in a wall of vodka products where the packaging is designed to show off the clear liquid inside in a shape that looks like so many others.
