I recently designed the identity for a new winemaker, Tenute Fois. I already knew the Fois family, which in Alghero produces one of the most celebrated olive oils of Sardinia, under the brand name Accademia Olearia, which I also designed together with Roberto Boassa some years ago. Now Fois embark on the road of wine with a Vermentino, Chlamys, baptized after the name of a shell very common along the Mediterranean shores. I designed the twin circular labels first, and it seemed to be a strong sign of identity. To take the two dots as “the” brand came as a natural consequence. Embossing each ray of the shell enhances the tactile impression and makes it coherent with the bottom of the bottle.
New brand and labels for two great sardinian wines. Sant’Efis is the legendary holy roman soldier who saved Sardinia from the moors, Alter Nos is the honorific title of the Mayor of Cagliari’s ambassador for the most popular feast of the island, named after the Saint, which takes place on May, 1st.
