The judges at this years UK Packaging Awards have nominated us again for Label of the Year and we’re absolutely delighted with the announcement.

Kakapo wins ‘Winner of Labels’ award at the FlexoTech Awards 2017 by The Label Makers - Printers and Manufacturers.

Great to see some Garage design achieving award status. 

The subtle, detailed embossing and tactile varnish given to the label was the perfect treatment, and of course the colourful charm of the Kakapo Parrot who won the hearts of the judges.

A big night out at the UK Packaging Awards

Awards Ceremony.jpg

We had an amazing night at the UK Packaging Awards this year at the palatial Grosvenor House Hotel in London. Very proud to have been a finalist up against some very big influential brands. Redsmith Gin, who took the prize, Aldi, Hardy’s, Fortnum and Mason were some of the major brands of which we were in the mix with. With that reality check, this year being a finalist was a pleasure in itself and we’re giving ourselves a big well deserved pat on the back. We already have some lovely projects in the running for 2018 so fingers crossed we’ll do even better next time around! A huge thank you to everyone at Packaging News and well done to all the finalists on the night.


Delighted to announce Garage creative as finalists at the UK Packaging awards!

Tux and black bow ties in check!   We made it as finalists to the big night in London at the Grosvenor House Hotel on the 22nd November.

Proud moment to see some Garage wine label design
up on the shelves in Asda.

An absolute privilege to have been involved in developing these two stunning wine labels for the guys at IPL.   Les Estivales Rose - The client required an unusual approach for a Dry French Rosé Wine label that needed to capture a strong retro period piece to reflect a French art deco design. The result was a Rose Gold ink foil working across the label design of a French Riviera style; encapsulating a period decor to compliment and enhance the design of the bottle shape and presence on the shelf. The subtle tactile embossing used added a different depth and showcased the label to add a touch of innovation.  Kakapo (night parrot) - We were asked to design a period style label for a New Zealand White Wine. Making a strong feature of the Kakapo Parrot which is one of the rarest parrots in the world, residing in New Zealand; creating a label design to reflect the bird with a strong botanical feature giving an endearing charm to the label. The result being an early 1900’s look and feel but keeping a modern edge to the design.
