Wine Brand Design
Whilst I was living in Joburg I worked for a brand design agency for 5 years. I absolutely loved the work I did with them and when I moved to CT in 2004 their Creative Director (and one of my very good friends – Erna) opened her own business – Design Oval. She has been operating successfully for over 7 years now and has managed to secure some blue chip clients such as Tiger Brands, Revlon, Debonairs and Barnard Jacobs Mellet as well as some exciting more niche based clients such as Nature’s Choice, Buffet Olives, Fast Fuel, AG Cellular and Restonic.
My first idea when starting KGB Wine was to contact Erna to see if I could represent Design Oval down here in the glorious Western Cape and thus the birth of Design Oval Cape Town became a reality. Her dynamic, highly motivated, professional and skilled Gauteng team has grown to 4 designers and 1 client service partner (all of whom I used to work with) so it feels like coming home☺ Our design work to date in Cape Town has included a magazine for Conservation Africa, wine label designs for niche wineries such as Stonehill, Cape Diamond Wines, Dolphin Bay and Dolphin Sands as well as packaging and marketing design work for Buffet Olives and Unsgaard.
Although our strength lies in FMCG packaging design we are brand designers thus have active insight into brands and are able to assist with any elements of brand design from packaging to point of sale, marketing material and consumer promotions
