Cardinal Spirits is a craft distillery in Bloomington, Indiana. We were initially asked to design a vodka label with the idea that there would be more spirits to come. We created a design system that could encompass future products with a consistent yet modular approach. The simple geometric triangle hinted at the crest on a cardinal’s head, the cardinal being Indiana’s state bird, and was also inspired by midwestern, twentieth-century graphics from seed catalogs and farm equipment advertising. The system we created uses color to distinguish between the different products while the composition unifies the brand and creates a strong presence on the shelf.
