Let's see, then, 5 essential steps to take into account in creation of a wine label:
1- The format
This should be the first step to start the label creation process. Visualize the shape of the bottle where you will apply the label and idealize a rectangular, square, oval or even a specific layout for you. Make sure you select the right size and shape for your bottle, be it Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhine, Champagne or other, the look will influence all other steps of creation.
2- The design
Abstract or minimal, inspired by ancient traditions or looking to the future, the design of a label must clearly express the identity of the wine and the audience it is intended for. The choice of colors and font is essential and determinant, as well as the combination of tones for a correct reading.
3- The images
Traces of nature or the animal world are part of the imaginary of labels. If it fits in a geographic region or has some element identifying the origin of your wine, use it as a key element in the great creative process. Once again, understand which segment your wine wants to reach and, above all , what are their origins. Let the label tell the story behind the process.
4- The choice of materials
This is one of the most important decisions in the entire process of creating a label. The choice of paper is decisive in the success or failure of a wine. In addition to the appearance, whether or not it has texture, functionality is very important, which adhesive will be used, for example, if it will be cold / frapped or not.
5- The finishes
It is common sense that when we choose a wine the aspect of the label appears at the top of the selection criteria. It is the finishes that give it a distinctive touch and thanks to the evolution of the market, today there are a great number of possibilities: varnish, high or low relief, silkscreen, cold or hot stamping, among others and the difficult thing is to choose.
