The brief was to design all aspects of a new Gin Distillery. Gin Head Listening Station is based on the east coast of Scotland near North Berwick. A relatively unknown spot, the listening station played a vital role in the success of WWII.
The concept was that the derelict building of Gin Head would be re-imagined as the Gin Distillery, along with added ‘shelters’ that would act as accommodation for visitors wishing to get away from the chaos of everyday life and escape to this coastal retreat.
The brand was focussed around quality, sustainability, functionality and community, with a minimal aesthetic. The Gin itself would be crafted from whey spirit, a sustainable by product of milk. The label was laser cut onto the bottle and the crate packaging was handmade using recycled wood.
In addition to the bottle and packaging I created an Artist Book to represent the brand through a different medium. Using dramatic photographs of the site and simple text I wanted to carry on the clean minimalist look from the Gin to the book.
