A delightful, family winery in the Columbia Gorge Wine region making unique and special wines under the view of Mt. Adams (Pahto). Ridge of Wonders approached me to develop a brand, packaging and website for their new winery with the name Pahto, the Native American name for Mt. Adams. Several years later in a culturally sensitive decision. we rebranded under Ridge of Wonders, a unique feature of Mt. Adams. We developed a range of labels that maintained the spirit and grace of Mt. Adams in illustrated form, each label a changing aspect of the mountains personality, from twilight to dusk, and into an aurora borealis filled night sky for their pyroclastic line.
I worked with Ridge of Wonders/Pahto Wine Cellars providing branding, packaging design, Illustration, Packaging Color Psychology and iteration, web design and development, TTB/COLA regulation adherence, and pre-press expertise.
