    De Smaak van Rotterdam
    The project 'De Smaak van Rotterdam' consists of a group of dutch guys who want to make their own 'moonshine' which captures the spirit and the 'taste' of Rotterdam. Since you can never agree on just one piticular taste, only one batch is made of each flavour, and therefore each batch is a new taste.
    Every batch is given a number, that way you can distinguish between the different editions.
    I was asked to come up with a visual identity for the project, a design for the bottle and label of the booze and a launching campaing for 'De Smaak van Rotterdam'
  • Logo
    The logo is a black on white plastic sticker, and exists in to different sizes. 
  • Logo, edition 1
  • Logo, edition 2
  • Stationary and businesscards
  • Bottle and label design
    For the label I used handdrawn illustrations, which incorporate the number of the bottle in the drawing. Each edition is supposed to represent a special caracter of the city - multiculturalism, urbanism and the harbour feeling of the city. 
    The backside of the label is filled with handdrawn illustrations from caractiristics of the city - logos, places, people and so on.
