Ah, fill the Cup:—what boots it to repeat 
How Time is slipping underneath our Feet:
Unborn TO-MORROW and dead YESTERDAY,
Why fret about them if TO-DAY be sweet!

Doing some research for a project in the upcoming semester, I came across this gorgeous wine bottle design by Alvin Edison - a student at Limkokwing University of Creative Technology.

What I personally love about it so much is the very ever-so-trendy overall image created when other bottles are placed together. It’s quite engaging especially when you are looking at hundreds of other wine bottles on the shelf. I’ve been snapping photographs in my head of very creative but clean sophisticated designs for alcohol bottles and what makes the design effective for future reference but this one by far has been my favourite.

Here is the concept for his design:

“Gravitas means dignity, seriousness, and maturity, qualities that are expected from a leader / people with higher position. It was chosen to give a character to the product as a “wine with dignity / serious wine”, and also to create a statement that indirectly says “this is the wine that gives you dignity”. The term Gravitas was chosen as the brand name mainly to build the character and perception of the wine because buying wine (especially for a new consumer) is tricky due to the massive choices.

Deer was chosen as the main visual as its antler symbolizes maturity, dignity and creates a fascinating visual. The antler in the design was tweaked to visualize grape.

Overall, the whole design is modern (in gold and silver color) to reflect the personalities of modern young professionals, to look classy, sophisticated, and most importantly to attract the consumers.”
