Make a Mark is a three-year collaboration platform created to accelerate creative and technological innovation in wine and spirits packaging and provide brand owners with a preview of the future packaging design trends. The goal is to stimulate the designers’ creativity with a special focus on luxury and sustainability.
Without cost and technological constraints, eighteen of the best packaging design agencies on a global level have been challenged to push their creativity further and break new ground in packaging innovation.
With Make a Mark, we want to provide a platform for starting the conversation and sharing ideas. We want to form a dynamic, creative community of thinkers and rebels – all united by our love for glass, labeling and packaging as well as the desire to create new things. We want to show the magic that happens when all parties in the chain work together.
On-shelf differentiation while respecting the environment
The brief was to satisfy the brands’ double need to make the difference on the shelf by catching the consumer’s eye while respecting the environment.
The resulting trailblazing design projects have then been developed by leaders in the luxury packaging supply chain like Estal for the glass bottles, Avery Dennison for the labeling materials, Kurz for the embellishments and many other key players in the industry like label printers, capsule and closures manufacturers.
“Make a Mark is not a design contest and the Make a Mark book is not a catalog featuring the current packaging design trends. It showcases the prototypes created by the industry pioneers leading the way towards a new era of wine and spirits packing design. Make a Mark is an ambitious project, which has engaged more than forty partners for many months in order to first create and then develop such futuristic packaging projects." said Vladimir Tyulpin, Avery Dennison's market segment leader - wine and spirits.
Stéphane Royère, director of the packaging and print business unit of LEONHARD KURZ, had the honor of presenting the Make a Mark Design Gallery to H.S.H. Prince Albert II, who visited the booth. “His Highness greatly appreciated our project, but the next edition of Make a Mark will be even more ambitious. We have already been working on the 2022’s edition to develop some new ideas that will increase the interest of those brands that wish to invest in their product packaging to make a difference on the shelf while decreasing the packaging's impact on the environment."
Brands need creativity aimed at actual technological advancement
The constant acceleration of business in the time of globalization leaves no room for promises. Brands want concrete proposals. The primary need of brands is to create packaging that is attractive, but at the same time sustainable. "This is why our Make a Mark Design Gallery at Luxe Pack last edition aroused great interest from the most important brands in the wine & spirits segment and cosmetics. Make a Mark has freed the creativity of some of the most awarded packaging design studios in the world, "pushing" us players in the packaging supply chain to rapidly develop new technologies and new materials that are truly at the forefront in terms of sustainability.
Anagrama from Mexico, Boldrini & Ficcardi from Argentina, Butterfly Cannon and Pocket Rocket Creative from the UK, Chad Michael Studio from the USA, Denomination from Australia, Dragon Rouge from China, JVD Estudio from Chile, MARK Studio from South Africa, Motherland from Sweden, Rita Rivotti from Portugal, Ruska Martín Associates from Germany and Spain, Series Nemo and Supperstudio from Spain, Servaire & Co and Studio Créa 'Design from France, Smith Lumen and Spazio Di Paolo from Italy are among the packaging design agencies most awarded in the world and have allowed us to demonstrate that luxury is sustainable." said Gerard Albertí, ESTAL’s CEO.
A limited number of sample packets and more information about the Make a Mark book and initiative are available at makeamark.world.
The Make a Mark innovation incubator was successfully co-launched by Estal, Avery Dennison and Leonard Kurz at Luxe Pack Monaco.

Recycled glass for sustainable bottles
Glass is an almost infinite material. It can be used time and time again to produce sustainable bottles or packaging, as well as an array of ornaments, windows or even art pieces. Using recycled glass means making the most of it and seeking the continuous reincarnation of this material through a wide variety of objects. Using very little energy, recycled glass is reborn and rebuilt to give life to a great variety of elements that help us organize and decorate our homes.
Stars and cosmetic packaging: a natural link
Some perfumes are legends and it is only natural that some of their names have become associated in our minds with those of other legends, Hollywood stars. Images of perfumes or the silhouettes of the most prestigious cosmetic packaging have often been linked to the most admired women on the planet. The image of beauty, elegance and personality in the star system are a major lure that the most exclusive cosmetics and perfume brands have pursued for decades.
Choker, the new finish
Many brands seek to give their product a hand-crafted feel as this helps to enhance their authenticity, naturalness and exclusivity, which are all attributes that they wish to transmit from the outset. The Choker embodies all these characteristics and so provides a clear communicative advantage.
The wine bottle that stands out
Our Sommelier wine bottle continues to evolve thanks to new design proposals, which bring greater value to the most prestigious and exclusive brands. This has given rise to the Sommelier Bold Bordeaux bottle, which is more robust and has more personality than its sister bottles.
Track21, beer with a rebellious soul
Track21 is a concept that revolves around a bottle which is always travelling and which, despite the difficulties along the way, always reaches its destination. The Wildly Crafted BOBBER JR 50CL bottle awakens artisan nostalgia, but also a value for design and things done the right way; making it the perfect base for this ambitious project.
Ceremonially dressed homes with glass candleholders and stunning mikados
Falling in love with our home again was one of our biggest challenges of 2020, a year filled with all kinds of trials and tribulations. A beautiful design is always welcome in any object or space. With that in mind, a glass candleholder, using pure and simple lines, is an ideal solution for decorating our home and adding a warm, welcoming filter.
Wildly spirited bottles for craft distillers
Wildly Crafted is a portfolio of bottles that speak to a new paradigm of glass packaging that appeals to the essence of the global “craft brands” movement. These attributes include small batches where imperfections are embraced for esthetic appeal and environmental sustainability benefits.
The sustainable packaging age
The climate emergency is now a reality and working to achieve sustainability is an imperative that ESTAL embraced many years ago. That, together with the importance we place on design, is why our team has worked with different materials and lines to develop WILD GLASS, the new colour in 100% recycled glass.
