Exploring Historical Elegance and Modern Sophistication in Wine Label Artistry

Dochev & Dochev emerges as a promising addition to the world of wine, a family venture driven by the passion and dedication of two ambitious brothers. With vineyards boasting famous and some less-known European varieties, the brand is committed to nurturing their vines to perfection, ensuring optimal results in winemaking.

Design Thinking:
Drawing inspiration from the intricate wrought iron decorations of old Venice, Dochev & Dochev’s label design embodies a fusion of historical elegance and contemporary flair. Against a saturated blue backdrop, reminiscent of the Venetian palace decorations, custom-made serif typography adds a touch of modernity while paying homage to the timeless Capitalis Monumentalis. The label serves as a modern interpretation of classic visual achievements, spanning from Roman times to the Renaissance era. Complemented by a classic Bordeaux-style bottle, the design exudes bold sophistication.

The label’s ornate grill presented a significant challenge, requiring a visible raised effect to be achieved using domed glossy silver. The intricate paper structure posed difficulties, but with the expertise of colleagues at Dagaprint, every obstacle was overcome with precision and finesse.

Favorite Details:
Among the favorite details of the label design for Dochev & Dochev is the paper’s grainy texture and semi-metallic finish, which work harmoniously to enhance the background color surface, giving it a captivating luminosity. Additionally, the white overlay areas create a distinct contrast against the natural paper color, adding depth and dimension to the label. An elegant raised varnish further elevates the design by accentuating the border between the white overlay zones and the paper background, contributing to the label’s overall sophistication. Lastly, the ornate grill stands out as a captivating focal point, infusing the design with an air of opulence and aristocratic spirit.

In conclusion, Dochev & Dochev’s label design embodies the essence of ornate wine label artistry, seamlessly blending historical inspiration with contemporary elegance. Each detail, meticulously crafted, contributes to an unparalleled sensory experience, reflecting the brand’s unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation in winemaking.
