Logan Wines

When War launched in 2004 one of our first clients was Logan Wines so, as you can imagine, they hold a very special place in our hearts. We are continuously working on projects, anything and everything, from launching new brands to extending product ranges or working on brand & event collateral. Sometimes we forget to tell you about all the great work, however, but that’s about to change. Here’s our latest Logan update:

 

Meet our new Temp
We’re pleased to introduce you to the newest member of the Logan wine team, Weemala Tempranillo. Native to Spain, ‘Temp’ as it’s often called, is a black grape so who better to feature on the label than a Black faced Cuckoo Shrike. Handsome little devil, isn’t he! (Weemala is both an Aboriginal word for ‘good view’ and the name of the Logan vineyard in Mudgee. The little devils on the label are all the local Mudgee birds that have a very good view of the Logan vines).

 

Issue No. Fifteen
We cannot believe we are up to Issue Fifteen of the Logan Newsletter. How time flies. The latest instalment features Sophie the Dalmatian and a stunning illustration of Poppies and Peonies by our very own talented designer Dana. There’s wine notes, news & events and it’s worth checking out for the recipe from Movida alone – the most amazing slow cooked lamb!

Ridge of Tears

War was once again entrusted with creating Logan Wine’s latest label for their high-end shiraz, Ridge of Tears. We drew on the winemakers family history to give us inspiration. The face on this label personifies Peter Logan’s great ancestors and ‘DRUIM NAN DEUR’ is Scottish Gaelic for ‘RIDGE OF TEARS’, the old Logan clan war cry. It’s an apt name for a wine that has, by his own admission, aged this winemaker. While making the best possible shiraz is painstaking, designing the label was a far more enjoyable and smoother experience!

Movember at War

It’s Movember, if you haven’t already noticed from the dodgy facial hair that’s sprouting on the faces of men the world over. The male staff at War have decided to jump on board to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and male mental health. We’d appreciate any donation you can make: http://mobro.co/TheHairyPrivates

Go tropical

Nothing sings summer like P&N Beverages new coconut flavoured water, Go CoCo. We had a ball imagining ourselves sitting on a tropical beach whilst designing the identity and packaging.

Love & Valour

Logan Wines recently approached us about developing a label for a new, limited release wine they were creating for a wine club. We drew on the winemakers family history to give us inspiration. The Logan family crest seemed like fertile territory. It shows passion nails piecing a human heart with the motto ‘Hoc majoram virtus: This is the valour of my ancestors. And so, Love & Valour was born.

Apple Tree Flat

Allow us to indulge in a little story telling. Once upon a time in a little town called Apple Tree Flat lived a humble winemaker who created a range of quality wines that were affordable enough to enjoy everyday. Our role was to bring this lovely little story to life. And we did, using hand drawn illustrations featuring the people, places and experiences of the winemaker’s home and life on the winery. And they drank happily ever after.

Logan ‘Signature’ wines

Peter Logan’s very particular approach to his winemaking inspired the choice of dimensional embroidery. This unique approach to embroidery was a fitting metaphor for the patience, care and love that goes into every bottle. By embroidering beautiful, intricate compositions of fruits, berries, leaves and flowers, each label visually represents the textures and flavors inside.
