    Corporate identity for Russian North vodka

    Overview   Process  

    Task: to design a corporate identity for vodka

    Russian North is a new brand of vodka coming in three flavors: Classic, Cranberry, and Taiga. We’ve created the brand name, developed the logo, visual identity, and bottle designs.

    Each flavor gets its own color.

    The style handbook contains all the necessary guidelines for the use of the new corporate identity.

    The original idea behind the Russian North bottle is in its unconventional facets refracting the light. The bottom is embossed with a compass to protect you from knock-offs. The “frosted window” pattern shimmers from the inside of the bottle out, making Russian North stand out on store shelves as in its private spotlight.
