Monastic abstinence?

Klosterkeller der Barmherzigen Brüder, Austria


At the start of this commission from the Brothers of Mercy we withdrew behind the ancient walls of the monastery to reflect on what we saw. Two things kept cropping up: old books and the symbol of the pomegranate. Reason enough to feature this unique combination in the packaging design for the monastery’s own wine. Old lettering and the form of the pomegranate provided the leitmotif for the labels and the boxes too. So be it.
