Girl and Dragon Label

Cult Partners takes us on a “Game of Thrones” like adventure in Gothic-luxe style with this wistful wine label. The stock choice, palette and illustrations make the tale of this bottle irresistible.

Flexo printed in 4-color, the first thing that catches my eye is the romantic illustration of the girl – flowing hair, ropes of pearls, garlands of flowers. We’ve now entered an enchanted world where dragons fly overhead.

That dragon is subtly rendered on the background of the Fasson semi-gloss label with clear gloss foil. The smooth feel of the base label against the slightly different texture and shine of the foil adds dimension and drama. A scalloped border done with gold foil is set on an angle around the girl giving the impression she’s standing at a window.

Does the dragon guard her or menace her? I think you’ll need to discover that over a glass of wine.
