Made By Four (MB4) is a fictitious, dynamic wine company.
The concept sprung from my family and the history, and stories we all share.
Each bottle has a gradient with a specific color, location, and an animal. Each
color on the gradient represents individual memories from a specific location
(New York, Portugal, New Jersey, Georgia) where we have lived. The small wine
samplers focus on individual events from each bottle; hence, the reason why
they are a solid color off the gradient from each bottle. As the wine decreases
the gradient gets lighter, and so our memories become "happier". This
also plays off nights at the dinner table where my father usually relives our
family history, and becomes "happier" while he tells us our great tales
as a family. The animals are targeted as pivot points in each location that
played a part in our lives, and in some cases had an impact on me as an
individual, and ties in the symbols of the colors with the location.
Vintage wine companies inspired the logo, as well as traditional Portuguese
ceramic art called "Azuleijo". Yellow and black where used as part of
the logo and visual branding of the company to represent its dynamic, and
modern European culture.
