Gothic as hell – Burn Cottage

A wine label is a space for both art and communication. It’s a place where a designer can tell a story to a prospective buyer of fine wine and this is a perfect example of getting it right.

The founding father of biodynamics agriculture, Rudolf Steiner, was influenced by the writings of Von Goethe and in particular, ‘The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily’ published in 1795. This is a  story about the combining the ‘ideal human being’ in everyone with ‘outer life experiences’, the two working in harmony. ‘The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily’ was the inspiration Mash needed. The various parts of the story have been put together to create an illustrated collage that forms the basis of the Burn Cottage brand imagery used in packaging, promotion and stationery.” Designed by Mash.
