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.

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 mens and women clothing.

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 that key signature. 

Electrical Inspections
Running business is already diffuclut enough and sometimes things slip your grasp; VM lost its original art work for their logo design.  I noticed when printing out some work that they used a 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, its even more interesting when a 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 .
