This project is minimalist. It has tiny graphic details and neutral colors which are related to the ritual of consume of sake, a Japanese typical drink. It also has a small bag with rice grains to give texture and to offer the buyer the original raw material of the drink; this fact gives major trust to the product and a gourmet touch. The bottle was not originally white – it was painted with white Montana spray. The font used is called Niau and it was created by me in another previous project. Niau intensifies the Japanese graphic influence of the packaging.

What’s Unique?
This packaging is elegant, neutral and sober. It has an unique calligraphy created by me with Japanese graphic influences. Furthermore, the presence of the small bag with the rice grains offers texture to the packaging and major trust to the client.
