jan and rohan run a graphic design company called fanakalo in my hometown of stellenbosch. i regularly see their designs when i’m walking around town, especially on posters for local markets and on many a south african wine.
i LOVE this wine label design they did for helderberg wijnmakerij. i remember seeing it for the first time when i was wandering around in my supermarket’s wine section trying to decide what to get. living in the winelands means we are spoilt for choice & on top of that i’m a total wine heathen… i don’t really know what is good or not (when it’s cheap it’s bad, right?) THEN i saw this bottle and picked it up right away. another case of judging a book (slash wine) by its cover – this usually works out for me, though. if something has a great design 99% of the time the product is great too.
the rest of their work is wonderful too…
