Elegant and restrained in the design execution, the new identity La Fonda Gràfica created for Ratafia 1842, doesn’t have any room for error.Ratafia is a traditional sweet liqueur, which the client creates using recipes dating back to 1842 from the Catalonia community of Spain. Hence the name of their product – Ratafia 1842. It was time for an update to the labels for this line of spirits – which featured 3 different flavor recipes; Classic, Green Walnut and Eight “Porrons.”
Paying tribute to the history of the ratafia recipe is at the heart of this project. The design solution is typography based, with the year 1842 screened onto the bottles in an oversize serif font, which wraps around the perimeter of the bottle. These numbers are the star of the show in this design, heavy block text with a 19th century air. The additional typographic elements are small in proportion and executed with a simple serif and condensed san serif font palette.
