We were asked by Absolut Elyx Vodka to design a Pineapple of Hospitality logo to support the success of the copper pineapple used in the bar trade for serving cocktails. This brand element has recently featured on the Elyx Water Truck Boutique - a portable pop up bar selling gift boxed copper pineapples with proceeds going towards Absolut’s Water For People campaign.
Having designed the pineapple device in isolation, we felt that it belonged to, or had come from something larger. From this the bespoke Elyx damask was created, designed to look immediately of a certain vintage whilst incorporating modern barware and equipment. Hawthorn and julep strainers, ice buckets, citrus reamers, bar spoons and coupe’s all make an appearance.
The damask has subsequently gone on to feature on the interior of the Water Truck Boutique, as printed wallpaper on the walls of the Elyx House and on the Gift Box packaging of the copper pineapple’s.
Services supplied: vector based graphic design / branding, surface pattern design, interior wallpaper and packaging.
