Crafting a gin brand with bite

When the team at Nosferatu asked us to help them with the brand identity and packaging design for their new artisan blood orange gin, we couldn’t wait to sink our teeth into the project.

With a spooky spirit of film noir running through its veins, the Nosferatu brand identity pays homage to the cult classic, featuring the moonlit shadow of the vampire count standing menacingly in the foreground, and the village he haunts behind him.

Creating a (Second) monster

After the scarily successful launch of Nosferatu gin, the distillers decided to concoct a second potent potion. Taking inspiration from the fact this cucumber and mint gin is made with the mystical mandrake, we developed a fearsome brand identity to bring its forest roots to life.

Keep an eye out for these two delicious, spine-tingling libations haunting good bars and bottle shops across the country.

“For the brand identity of our new gin concept, we couldn’t have asked for a better agency than Whippet. Not only were they great to work with, they have taken the product to a new level with a striking and original design that perfectly delivered on our brief. We think the result is remarkable.”
