The North Pole
A label design based on an antique map of the most icy region of the world, the north pole.


I was inspired by the old maps made by the cartographers of past civilizations, particularly of the regions of the world that they knew little about, like the great northern hemisphere and the north pole. And using that to serve as a background texture and framing design to place the logo type of Wodka Gorbatschow.

What is the mystical story behind your design?

The early cartographers only had vague information about regions of the world that had not been explored and little was known about. So the maps and charts they created had a sense of mystery and mystique about them.

Did you use images, graphics, fonts etc – not originally created by you? Did you get very closely inspired from a source? That’s fine as long as you share that source-links.
