Our friends at Fourth Wave approached us to develop the identity for its new wine La Noblesse. The design has been created to entice consumer to drink wines from the Loire Valley, a region under-represented in the category and awash with old fashioned, samey brand and packaging identities.

Could there be a better name for an Australian beer? Named after the drought-stricken Aussie Bushman’s plea in 1912, “Send ‘er down Hughie!” which quickly became our farmers’ plea for refreshing rain, and part of the Australian vernacular.
