A C5 Gift: Custom Wine Bottles for a Great Designer

If there’s an opportunity to celebrate something, we want to join in (especially if it’s Beer Friday). So, when we heard that one of our favorite freelance design partners and longtime C5 collaborator, Huilin Dai, was getting married, we knew a gift was in order.

After crowdsourcing ideas internally, we decided to honor Huilin and her husband-to-be, Martin, with fine wine to toast their new life journey—but with a C5 twist in the form of custom labels for the bottles. We drew inspiration from Huilin’s wedding theme, artistic influences and love of travel (her own wedding invitations were designed as plane tickets) to create the three unique labels.

Label 1Inspired by Huilin’s love of travel, we chose three scenic landscapes to depict.

Label 2The stamp and border were included to give the label a postcard feel.Label 3

We’re glad we were able to surprise the happy couple—and that they were able to snap a few pics of the final product for us to see. We wish them all the best.
