“Marisco Vineyards have had a long-standing relationship with international fashion designer Trelise Cooper, sponsoring many of her fashion shows etc. As a result of that friendship and business partnership an opportunity came up to involve Trelise in the design for a limited release wine. I was engaged to create the design and artwork for the brand, being briefed by Trelise, who offered her ideas and inspirations. With her strong affinity for all things French and antique, the brand needed to represent Trelise in its style and elegance.
Using the concept of ‘Harmony’ as a base, in terms of the harmonious combination of wine varieties (Viognier, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Riesling), and the harmonious relationship between the two company brands, its French synonym ‘Entente’ was chosen – symbolising the coming together – or accord between the two parties. Growing on the concept of ‘harmony’ I found some antique sheet music which became the basis for the label design, elements of which were totally reworked in pen and ink – creating a beautifully elegant, timeless and delicate design.”
