Mass Market Innovation - Award winner
Single Malt Whisky Loyal Bandit, Draup Spirits – Maison Linea
The objective was to create a premium French whisky (with a price positioning of 30€) responding to the specificities of mass distribution. The mission was to create a premium, personalised, ecological and economical product.
To premiumise this glass standard, they decorated the brand with a digital printing technique on tinted imitation relief glass. This technique allows a qualitative visual rendering while respecting reasonable material costs.
Mass Market Innovation - Certificate winners
Havana Club 7 años x Burna Boy limited edition – Pernod Ricard
The Havana Club 7 limited edition bottle continues the brand’s commitment to supporting artists and celebrating the voices of their generation, in this case Grammy winner Burna Boy. The artist and Havana Club share a common bond in paying tribute to their roots, from Nigeria to Cuba, and Burna Boy wanted to ensure that the limited edition bottle reflected this pride in their origins.
Villa Moncigale Cicada – VILLA MONGICALE
Designing the bottle of tomorrow for a premium brand in Provence in a highly competitive market was the main objective. The constraint was to have an industrially produced volume product while keeping the uniqueness and beauty of the bottle and to be in line with the DNA of the brand with its geometrical shape, its curves and its facets representing the cicada.
Super & Ultra Innovation - Award winners
Super & Ultra Innovation - Certificate winner
NIKKA FROM THE BARREL – 2S Global Design
Given the novelty of this material and the production process, the design agency used moulded cellulose to enhance this emblematic product of the Nikka brand.
Luxury Innovation - Award winners
Luxury Innovation - Certificate winner
Camus XO – CAMUS La Grande Marque
The objective was to bring Cognac back to the centre of the dining table, by creating a desirable and timeless object. The agency CARRÉ NOIR created a decanter in line with Camus’ DNA. A decanter in extra-white glass, whose size was previously optimised to optimise logistics and to remove labels and overexposed branding in order to bring back elegance and beauty.
Value Added Packaging
XO End of Year 22-23 – Rémy Martin – Groupe Rémy Cointreau & Hucais Packing Arts Europe
The requirements were both aesthetic and technical: to produce a design box, made of a single material (paper and cardboard only), without injection, ribbon or magnet. The fan, the “surprise” element of the pack, had to be well positioned, to create a defined decoration around the decanter.
Dom Pérignon x Lady Gaga End of Year – Dom Pérignon & Pusterla 1880
Like Lady Gaga, who constantly pushes the limits of creativity, the Dom Pérignon x Lady Gaga collaboration is a testament to this creative dynamic by going beyond the limits of technique. This tin can illustrates the contrast between the rigidity of the material and the visual effect of a “balloon”.
Sustainable Innovation - Award winner
Etui Crayères Dom Ruinart – PUSTERLA 1880 – James Cropper
The new case is made of paper and has been moulded in one piece. The clasp is a major innovation as it does not require the use of magnets, plastic wedges or any other material.
Sustainable Innovation - Certificate winners
Degustation kit Perrier-Jouët Pernod Ricard
The idea was to develop a new sustainable modular packaging for an ultra-premium tasting kit that could be sent via all platforms to VIP customers. A sustainable luxury packaging that could be sent via e-commerce without being damaged in transit.
The kit protects the flutes and the bottle and offers a unique remote tasting experience. The kit can be tailored to the customer’s needs.
Noblige – Martell – Pernod Ricard
Martell Noblige’s packaging has been redesigned to strikingly convey its flair, energy and unconventional attitude. The iconic bottle shape remains unchanged, but is enhanced with a large engraved Martell Swift emblem. With a more dynamic font and colour.
