Calvados is a spirit with three most important appellations, considered one of which is made predominantly by the distillation of pears. In doing analysis on this French spirit, Oleg Zaharevich created SANQUER, a fictive calvados model. Utilizing CGI, he developed the model identification, inserting specific element on the bottle’s form, in addition to labeling. With the intention to mirror the spirit’s most important ingredient, he created a pear formed bottle with an elongated neck and rotund physique. Digitally utilizing gold foil, he elegantly designed the label with a mixture of high quality strains and circles. A minimalist, slim French flag emblem is included with a purpose to additional emphasize the fictional model’s historical past and tradition.
The thought of this idea got here into my thoughts through the examine of calvados manufacturing historical past. Certainly one of its varieties is generally comprised of pears. This undertaking is an experiment in making a bottle form that visually displays this function.
The search yielded a lot of shapes: an natural, pure pear silhouette, French classic fragrance vials from across the late nineteenth or early twentieth century, and a traditional high-neck calvados bottle.
The peculiarity of this form is the excessive distinction between the bottleneck and the primary a part of the bottle, the hemisphere. The embossing strains that diverge in direction of the middle of the bottle lend a particular classic look to its exterior picture. The strains visually emphasize the general form of the bottle and the peak of the neck, complicating the picture and creating further refractions within the glass.
The 2-component, steel plug has a faceted form that rhymes with the embossed strains and visually extends them. The debossed high of the plug bears the monogram “AS” from the primary letters of the identify André Sanquer — a fictional character, the founding father of the household distillery, whose surname shaped the premise of the trademark.
The skinny a part of the bottleneck is supported by a small ornamental label that solves the color coding downside.
The primary label utterly encircles the underside of the bottle. The supplies—beige, textured paper and gold, sizzling foil stamping—create a strict however neat, mushy, pastel picture.
