LET US INTRODUCE TO YOU SOME OLD FRIENDS
Success can be measured in many ways, but perhaps the most telling is whether one is able to inspire loyalty. We’ve been fortunate to attract some great clients over the years who share our desire in pushing the boundaries and this mutual ambition has been fundamental in the success of our on-going partnerships. Whilst based in Melbourne, distance can’t come in the way of good design and we’ve travelled from Margaret River to Moldova to meet clients and everywhere in between. This is what our clients have had to say:
L'ENOLOGA [THE WINEMAKER], MILDURA
L’enologa is an exciting new wine brand based in Mildura, Victoria, creating premium small batch wines; shaping up a region better known for large scale production. Elizabeth Marwood [the winemaker] spent a number of years studying winemaking in Italy and brings this expertise to Mildura, focusing predominantly on making Italian wine varieties. L’enologa is where two worlds meet – the old world od italy and traditional winemaking with the new world and experimental winemaking of Australia.
"Trusting Josh from Beetle Creative to interpret the vision we had for our labels has been by far the best business decision we have made. He not only exceeded our expectation in design but has consistently gone above and beyond to create a unique, layered brand identity.
Brown Brothers are one of Australia’s oldest family owned wineries dating back to 1889. Despite its long history, the business is going through a really exciting time, reinventing itself, innovating and pushing boundaries to keep reaching new markets. We’ve been fortunate to be at the forefront of this new drive.
"Working with Beetle Creative to produce the new La La Land label was a combination of Josh's wonderful understanding the brief and the need for impact in such a competitive marketplace. I was looking for something that stood out from the crowd and more left-field, which Josh perfectly created into a reality. Josh has been a breeze to collaborate with and is always full of creative, individual ideas. I look forward to working with him again future projects."
DEAKIN ESTATE, WINGARA WINE GROUP
Wingara Wine Group has been our longest wine client and we’ve collaborated on some brilliant projects for brands such as La La Land Wines, Deakin Estate, Woolshed and Katnook Estate. Wingara is constantly pushing the boundaries and many of our projects together have been our fondest.
"We have enjoyed working with Beetle Creative on a number of different wine label projects. Josh is extremely creative and a skilled illustrator, and always brings a fresh approach to label concept, development and artwork."
Express Winemakers is a rapidly emerging force in the Australian Wine scene based in Denmark and Mt. Barker, Western Australia. Express Winemakers was born from a desire to do things differently. Ryan O’Meara, the founder was tired of the commodity wines and blends being produced in Australia and wanted to re-establish some of the time honoured practises that he learnt from his time in Europe for more natural wines. His primary objective is for his wines to reflect ‘terrior’ – the land, climate and fruit. His wines are predominantly from single batch vineyards. Express Winemakers doesn’t currently own its own vineyards but rather searches for the best parcels of fruit from around Western Australia. This diversity in place, grapes and flavours has allowed endless inspiration for the colourful and creative Wine Labels.
"Beetle Creative created our branding and first 30 labels. At that time we were just starting out but Josh managed to highlight our strengths such as creativity, experimentation and craftsmanship while creating professional and attractive outcomes. His designs helped people to trust our small-batch wines from the outset. Our small business has grown in leaps and bounds and credit must be given to the strong foundations put in place by Beetle Creative. Highly recommended."
