Our case studies

Our glass packaging stories are the creation of Hrastnik1860 full-service solution and design studio expertise.

Re-design case study
Read more

Our design studio proposed re-designing the Berryshka glass bottle.

Berryshka’s brand range assumes 6 different liqueurs, 3 gins, and 3 junipers. Spirits belong to the higher price range, liqueurs fall into the lower price range. The main products are gin and juniper. Their gin is awarded Slovenian gin and is famous for the taste of ten herbs.

One bottle was being used for all their types of drinks, therefore design proposals were needed to tackle all different segments. Options were divided into 4 different proposals. The old packaging was replaced with a new, modern and exciting new look.
