Fattoria il Gambero - Winery
The origin of the logo was a stylized G which conveyed the sense of a corkscrew uncorking a bottle and at the same time looked like the road leading to the company. The sans serif font makes this not entirely defined symbol more substantial and solid. The burgundy color was chosen to represent a full-bodied red wine like the Pinot Nero, one of the company’s battle horses. For labels the symbol G was used as a graphic sign, the colors reflects the type of wine: for younger wines the label is clear with colorful graphics while for wines most important the label base is colored with darker and shiny graphics.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Fattoria il Gambero positioned itself on the market with a well-balanced approach in between the dynamic and the contemporary, while still greatly relying on its history, which dates back to 1880. The intention was thus to imbue the entire image with innovation, color and contemporaneity, while maintaining all the characteristics of the past, as in the embossed paper used for the Brochure. This project was handled at 360°, from the brand to the labels, from the website to the brochure. All communication was based on the owner's family, a big family who followed his father in a big project. The names of the wines found their inspiration in the horses of the owner’s grandfather.
