Design Limited Edition Festive Packaging For Seagram's Imperial Blue Whisky
Seagram’s Imperial Blue whisky is known for its exquisite smoothness. With a perfect blend of Indian grain spirits and imported scotch malts, it is the leading whisky brand of Pernod Ricard. To celebrate 2021’s end of year festivities, Pernod Ricard is looking for a new festive packaging design and they want to collaborate with you!
Artists, graphic designers and illustrators from around the world are invited to create one-of-a-kind limited edition designs, for Seagram’s Imperial Blue bottle label and mono carton. The artworks should focus on global end of year festive occasions and conviviality - the quality of being friendly and lively. Conviviality has different expressions across the globe during the festive period, so we want to see diverse creative visualisations that bring to life the vibrant festive feel.The judges at Pernod Ricard are looking for vibrant packaging designs that appeal to global audiences but particularly target their main consumers across Africa, South East Asia, the Persian Gulf and the Mediterranean. 3 x Selected Creators will be chosen and each receives $4500 for their artworks and potentially has their work featured in Pernod Ricard's marketing campaign, across OOH (out of home), print, digital and retail advertising.
