OriGINality and ImaGINation

05.02.2019

Mixing it up since 1988.

As you probably already know we’re toasting an unbelievably good 30 years of creativity and craft, distilled and continually refined since 1988. To celebrate we've created a bespoke gin gift to toast our success, and say a big thank you to everyone who's been part of making the past 30 years so great.

This spirited package contains two types of gin, a Leicester and a London variety, as a nod to each of our studios, popping candy, orange bitters (it wouldn't be Stocks Taylor Benson without a splash of orange!) and a booklet containing bespoke cocktail recipes. It took weeks of mixing ingredients, creating recipe upon recipe...having to do all the tasting ourselves! It was a tough job but we managed, bringing you the perfect flavours in the process.

The box features our special edition STB logo, and both gin labels use the same base design, with orange highlighting the different titles ‘Leicester’ and ‘London’ within the copy. As you rotate the bottle the reverse of the label reveals our company values of oriGINality and imaGINation and the booklet 'Design, Create and Distil' details our story and gives a little bit more insight into the delicious gin.

“The dictionary definition of create is ‘to cause to come into being, as something unique that would not naturally evolve or that is not made by ordinary processes. Quite apt when I think back to when I started Stocks Taylor Benson, an ideas-led design studio, managed by designers. That’s far from ordinary! I’ve always taken my own path and tried to stick to my principles on design rather than fall in line with the industry norm. But ideas and design are only part of it. You need people to buy into and believe in your creative solutions to create something unique. I’m proud to say you’ve all helped us get where we are today. Let’s celebrate that uniqueness.I invite you to raise a glass to staying true to principles and for the love of Bloody Brilliant Graphic Design. ”
