Concept redesign of a basic Malbec $5 wine in South America rebranded as a High End Luxury wine. 

Problem: Malbec wine  an Argentina vineyard; grapes have grown in popularity after winning many awards. The increase in demands have driven pricing. The Brand would like to take advantage of the market and and compete with France with a premium wine product.

Challenge: Updating, the branding for a bottle, while keeping the historical ties to the company and country.

During 2 week research I read that the country of Argentina was   home to a species of Jaguar that are endangered.  The country is now doing its part to revive those numbers.  The idea here was to pay tribute to the Jaguar,  its dark black coat, symbolizes beauty, elegance and strength  Much like the Malbec wine. It was a clear and perfect match.

Various Projects 
After reading Giant corporation guidelines for Design. I created an overhead Sign design for their in-store display. 

Smith Company Flyer
Giant Store has a new product from a local bakery. However, the baker didn’t have a designer for their seasonal holiday cake. Designed a 7×11  Sign and an 11×17 poster. 

T-Shirts
With the company going through a rebrand,  it was suggested that the workers have newly designed shirts, that allowed men and women to choose their style of Giant branded clothing. 

I designed t-shirts that are breathable for workers that allowed a hint of style between men’s and women’s clothing.

Giant Foods and NFL’s Washington Capitals Poster
Giant and the Caps are promoting a contest for team support heading into the playoffs. 
In search of images, I stumbled on a picture in the Washington Capitals photo gallery, of a supercharge kid in the heat of a game cheering on his team.  I used that image and altered the face in photoshop. The background is a picture of the ice rink zoomed in close and darkened.

Various Projects

Barbershop Logo Design
Mr.Car wanted a mark that fit his style as a professional barber.  While Still a traditional barber he often uses classic techniques and supplies.  The blade being the key signature. 

Electrical Inspections
Running a business is already difficult enough and sometimes things slip your grasp; VM lost its original file for their company logo design.  I noticed when printing out some work that they used a white block around the logo, and I inquired. They were using a camera phone photo cropped in place. 
So Minute Man Press offered a design logo package to the project, up-selling the order. 

Ice Cold lemonade Logo
Small business is a key, it’s even more interesting when an 11yr old kid is an entrepreneur. This project was a logo design derived from a child’s illustrations.  I simply vectorized the logo and created stickers as a single label for his Lemonade.  You can now buy this lemonade in Forestville MD 7-11 .
