A sake with punch. Brave Bear Special Junmai Daiginjo is the first product of its kind to incorporate a soft note of honey, providing a somewhat “wild” experience. The visual identity, packaging and communication exploit this unique feature of the product, further enhancing the experience.

Yamaguchi is tucked away in the south-western tip of Japan’s main island Honshu. Among the sake – uninitiated, is best known for the pleasant tourist town Iwakuni. When it comes to sake, Yamaguchi is known as the home of gorgeously scented, delicate, delicious and super-premium products.

We signed the logo and the packaging design, beyond to the product 3D visualization, all the images are 100% CGI and were created on Foundry MODO 10.2. The scene was illuminated exclusively with HDRI light.

Modeling, texturing, scene composition, lighting, rendering and post-production, all were created from scratch.

The masterpiece in the sake world – the best of the best. To produce the Brave Bear Junmai Daiginjo, each grain of rice is milled to at least 50%. Light, mildly fruity and more fragrant, this is best sake that you will taste.
