At Design Interviews

(Excerpt) Interview with Valerii Sumilov : Frank Scott: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?. Valerii Sumilov : We had to create a unique concept, and on the other - to communicate the idea behind the trademark in an effective and original manner. When brainstorming on the idea I came up with the final conceptual solution, the rest was rather simple. The highlight of this design is the trademark's name, which is represented through the ellipsis sign. From there on it was all about the balance of elements and setting proper accents by applying different printing techniques. .Frank Scott: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?. Valerii Sumilov : The task was to create a stylish and minimalistic design that would make the product stand out on the shelves. Assuming that these are expensive quality wines, we also had to create the feeling of exclusivity through an original and unusual design. Besides, the project also required its own product placement, a concept that would be completely different from what the other local winemakers had to offer. .Frank Scott: What are your future plans for this award winning design?. Valerii Sumilov : The future is very promissing - the product is already present on the shelves and it enjoys good sales. Which is what this design was aimed for. .Frank Scott: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?. Valerii Sumilov : It took several months to take this project from the initial concept stage to the final printed label. .Frank Scott: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?. Valerii Sumilov : The winemakers at Et Cetera approached me with the request of creating a label design for their new line if limited run wines.

Valerii Sumilov : This design was made entirely by our agency. .Frank Scott: Who is the target customer for his design?.

Valerii Sumilov : The project's main trait is its simplicity. While the majority of other designs in this category strive to reflect nobility, traditionality and exclusivity, this particular design stands out with its seemingly simple, almost minimalistic layout that makes it stand out from the competition. .Frank Scott: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?. Valerii Sumilov : The name was determined by the very product the design was created for. .Frank Scott: Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?.
