LOVE / modern wine label by DJURDJIC

15.7.15



Djurdjic Winery is a Serbian wine producer who asked Peter Gregson to create a brand that was fresh & modern. The label has only been around since 2004 and because its homeland does not have a strong wine heritage (unless anyone knows of a great Serbian label?), Gregson had a lot more leaway than most wine label designers.  Using a bold color-coding system, Gregson created a modern way of not only identifying the Djurdjic label, but also a way to easily identify the different grapes.  Hats off to him.
