This Wine is Here to Party

Barcelona-based studio Atipus has come up with the design for Vi Novell 2016, the newest wine from Catalonian winery Celler Masroig. The concept behind the design was to create something fun, festive and ready to tag along to the party.
"The Vi Novell is, first of all, fun. It's a unique product: a young and perishable wine, ill-mannered and traditional in equal parts. It's a kind of wine that makes no sense without the celebration of its party. And it is precisely from this party that arises the concept of the graphic identity for this 2016 edition of Vi Novell."
"Thinking together with the cellar about the previous editions, we concluded that the rule-breaking and ill-mannered point of the first editions were being eclipsed by the concept of tradition and the conventions of the wine world."
"The premise of this year was enhancing the 'Vi Novell celebration party', so the packaging had to fit in that context. We had to create something that would reflect party to the maximum. And not just any party, but a popular party, a casual and neighborhood party. From here arises the idea of the garland and party decoration, elements of any open-air dance."
"Finally, the label design of Vi Novell 2016 is a collection of six patterns. Each bottle becomes a 'decorative pennant' for the party. Thus, in each box of six bottles, one will find that all the bottles are different, creating a visual diversity that gives meaning and dynamism to the idea."
