New entries are coming in from around the world for the Design Annual 2020 competition! Today, we’re taking a look at two entries from Portugal. Omdesign submitted “Honore Port” (ABOVE) for their client Quinta do Crasto. They created a special edition crystal decanter of an old Tawny Port, limited to 400 bottles. With this luxurious design, the firm was able to pay homage to more than four centuries of Quinta do Crasto’s history with grace.
Design Firm This is Pacifica submitted “Hardy Smoked Masterpieces” (ABOVE) which represents their packaging design and identity for their client Hardy. They explained their process to us, “Hardy’s graphic identity results from two ideas: the use and manipulation of a strong typography that evokes a Germanic aesthetic, rigid and sharp as a cutting knife and the symbol that reproduces the Hardy process, the salmon fillet, with its texture and repetition of pattern, and a drawstring tie that binds it to the smoker.” The design is simple, yet elegant and represents the brand well.
