Varâ is a wine spritz brand whose identity aims to evoke a summer mood while embracing elegance and minimalism. The design addresses a young audience, but it still gives the impression of an adult drink. The illustrations on each can create appealing and recognisable patterns that depict cheerful scenarios: a holiday at the beach, a gathering in the countryside and a night party at a club. These fun illustrations complement the logo and both make each other stand out. The colours match the beverage flavours and, when combined as a palette, strengthen the idea of a fresh adult brand.
