When are brand changes necessary? When one moves to and lives in a country that doesn’t understand what the super mysterious feijoa fruit was in the previous brand, Feijoa Designs.

Building a platform is made more potent using your name, especially when you are an artist, maker and silversmith, so say a big welcome to Hayley’s new brand name with a  look and feel that sparkles. We enjoyed helping her out with the big change and think it’s a bit of gem.

Martinborough Wine Merchants Branding.

The new look logo.

When new owners took over Martinborough Wine Centre, they wanted to put their own stamp on the fabulous wine store right in the heart of Martinborough Village. They engaged us to undertake the rebrand, so we helped with a brand name, then set about designing a new logo, shop signage, stunning window graphics (which grace every window) and took the look and feel across their online presence making Facebook banners and profile pics. We set them up with a great looking Read More

Martyman Face Cream Launches.

Here at Wolfies, we have designed the second product label for Martyman. A face cream made by Adi McMaster from Martygirl. The men wanted their own great, reliable, hydrating and protective face cream, so now they have one. Full of amazing natural, nourishing and ethical ingredients, with an SPF of up to 15, you better get your order in with Adi quickly, as this is the perfect Christmas stocking/hamper addition. The labels are in at the printers while Adi and the elves are no doubt whipping up a nice but not too girly smelling storm in her kitchen.

Things are Hotting up at Wolfies.

PICKLED CHILLI RECIPE

This recipe is for 3kg of chillies. That’s one bucketful.

First, pick chillies with gloves on, then soak them overnight in the brine recipe below, as it keeps them crisper and makes them easier to cut. Read More

Terroir Wines.

BDX 2 pack layers rev2
It was such a pleasure to design wine labels for Simon Groves and Amanda Ra, owners of Terroir Wines. These two beautiful labels wrap around their completely stunning wine that is attracting a lot of good attention. BDX 2011 has been rated 2nd (equal with Atarangi’s Celebre) in a NZ ‘blended red wine’ tasting by Master of Wine Bob Campbell.

“An equal blend of CS, CF and Merlot. Aged for 18 months in Hungarian and French barriques. The wine derives aroma from Cabernet Franc, structure from Cabernet Sauvignon and rich, berry and plum fruitiness from Merlot. Elegant, powerful red with good cellaring potential.” Bob Campbell MW 93/100 Five Stars.

BDX 2010 and BDX 2011 are available direct from Terroir Wines. Their website and Facebook page are food for your soul, they showcase their wonderful wines, lifestyle, poetry and beautiful photography and are well worth a visit.

Rebrand for Vintage Treasure in Martinborough by Wolfies.

When you want the whole hog, we are the people to see! This is the rebrand for Daphne Geisler’s shop – Vintage Treasure in Martinborough.

Nowadays it’s an online shop packed full of treasure, nostalgia and sentiment, with not a speck of dust in sight. If you adore antiques and collectables, are a craft maker and lover of kitchenalia, china, Crown Lynn, crystal and glass, linen, sewing, silverware, all things blue and white, retro and vintage, you will love it.

Book Illustrations.

With the launch and the great media coverage this week of Leanne’s book Fairytale Love – How to Love Happily Ever After (Greg designed the cover and graphic inclusions) we realised that we hadn’t actually posted a blog on the fabulous illustrations that Random House commissioned Greg Keith to do for Jared Gulian’s book Moon Over Martinborough – How an American City Boy Became a Kiwi Farmer, published last year.

Jared has had fabulous success with his book full of heart-warming stories about olives, neighbours, friendships and farm animals. They make you laugh and cry and want to live in the country on an olive grove. You will also have to spot the stories about us, aka Leelee and Wolfie.

UPDATE. Jared’s book is now called “An Olive Grove at the Edge of the World.” Available https://www.jaredgulian.com/an-olive-grove-at-the-edge-of-the-world/
