Project Title: Special edition João Nicolau de Almeida
Client or Class Name: Ramos Pinto - www.ramospinto.pt/vinhosPorto.aspx?ID=50&lingua=en
Omdesign has designed a very special edition for Ramos Pinto, paying homage to João Nicolau de Almeida, who worked with the company for 40 years.
To thank him for all his dedication, Ramos Pinto, which has been combining innovation with tradition in the production of Port wine since 1880, chose a 40-year-old Tawny, representing the years that João Nicolau de Almeida was in charge of oenology for Casa Ramos Pinto. For the last 25 years, he was also the managing director of the company.
The Portuguese advertising agency is responsible for the image of this limited edition of 320 numbered bottles. A special label and back label were designed, as well as premium packaging in wood and cardboard.
With silkscreen details on the wood, the main character on this packaging is the homaged. He is clearly featured on the packaging, which also carries his signature, a quotation allusive to his involvement in and passion for wine and one of the emblematic images of his wine tasting.
