Estal, Avery Dennison and LEONHARD KURZ have proposed that the TOP packaging design agencies demonstrate that creativity has no limits and that thinking freely can take packaging design to unexplored places and unreached limits. And all of this is thanks to the Make a Mark initiative.
“The imagination is limited by reality. One cannot imagine what does not exist.” These words were uttered by Federico García Lorca in a speech titled Imagination, Inspiration, Evasion. But what if he was wrong? What would happen if we brought together 18 designers who love glass bottles and the world of packaging, labelling and packing design and asked them to create a brand out of their desire to create something new? This was the starting point of this initiative. The results of the first edition were successfully presented at Luxe Pack Monaco 2021.
Love of glass bottles and more
Make a Mark has provided a unique opportunity to promote discussion and share ideas. Through the initial project, a “dynamic and creative community of thinkers and rebels” has been created, “showing the magic that happens when all parts of the chain work together”, according to those responsible for this initiative.
All the designers and creatives taking part in this project are developing concepts around core elements such as sustainability, luxury and innovation. Access to some of the recent developments in the industry has meant that participants have been able to use the latest packaging technologies to bring their ideas to life, without limits.
The most prestigious packaging design agencies that took part in the first edition of this project are very well-known and valued in the sector and they have won multiple awards. As for their location, they are scattered all around the world: from Argentina to Australia, from England to Mexico, passing through the United States, Switzerland, Chile, South Africa, China, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Germany and France.
The result? At Luxe Pack Monaco
The work carried out by these 18 designers and creatives was presented between the 27th and 29th at Luxe Pack Monaco 2021, where the creative process was exhibited with proposed concepts and designs and brought to life by the different creators and agencies.
At ESTAL, we have been committed to the innovation in packaging design for wine and spirits bottles for more than 25 years. Therefore, if you would like to see all our latest designs, we suggest taking a look at our new online catalogue and, if you wish, requesting samples of our designs.
Estal's award-winning Rude collection: Spirit bottles with raw spirit
Estal's Rude collection of glass bottles has been designed for spirits with spirit. Its distinctive craft aesthetic is achieved through the use of 100% PCR 'wild' glass in its manufacture and the result is a highly impacting glass bottle line with raw authenticity.
Ruska Martín chooses Estal’s new PRIMA bottle collection
Ruska Martín chose Estal’s new PRIMA bottle collection for its thin glass, impressive sustainability and subtle asymmetric profile, which come together splendidly to minimize weight without compromising on strength, stability and a premium feel. The unique shape made of Estal’s 100% PCR Wild Glass gives the bottle a handcrafted look.
Estal's recycled Wild Glass provides an eco-friendly decanter with a luxury finish
Environmental consciousness and the premium drinks sector rarely go hand in hand. It’s a contradiction that was picked up on by Pocket Rocket Creative in its choice of Estal's wild glass and having it hand blown into a unique, reusable decanter.
Estal's exemplary SM BD Emblem bottle chosen for emblematic Argentinian wine
When called upon to design this project, the first thing the Boldrini& Ficcardi team looked for was a strong message. They wanted to design packaging that celebrates wine as something to help escape the isolation of these extreme times, where the lockdown situation has been overwhelming and where sensitivity traverses fragility and volatility.
Wild glass provides a wild finish for Butterfly Cannon
Butterfly Cannon’s concept is Papil, a premium non-alcoholic wellness aperitif created from an uplifting blend of natural adaptogens and nootropics to enhance a positive mood at the start of an evening. Concentrated for easy mixing and spritzing, it comes in a beautifully styled, reusable bottle produced by Estal in Wild Glass.
Distinctive identity is developed thanks to Estal's WCR Primal
The “dream-project concept” provided Servaire & Co with an opportunity to challenge tradition. A distinctive identity was developed using the Estal WCR Primal bottle as base for an amalgamation of bright colors, Kurz hot stamping decoration, embossing, debossing and micro-embossing textures, as well as different varnishes.
Estal's Rude Collection 1919 bottle is selected by Spazio Di Paolo
Fuoridimè is dedicated to the “Italian genius” — an artistic project that explores body aesthetics and deep thought. To pay homage, the Spazio Di Paolo team is showcasing some of Italy’s most important scientists in its project and has chosen Estal's Rude Collection 1919.
Estal and JVD Estudio collaborate for Bou Barroeta
JVD Estudio set out to communicate the essence of the Bou Barroeta brand through a design that brings together everything it stands for. Not only does the ox symbolize strength, resilience and perseverance – all traits of Bou Barroeta – it also represents the wisdom, kindness and appreciation in the heart of a family.
'Make a Mark' innovation incubator co-launched by Estal, Avery Dennison and Leonard Kurz
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. The resulting glass bottle projects have been developed by Estal.
