We believe wine culture should be relatable and charismatic, while securing Winc's position as a leader in its unique category. We crafted a brand that harmonized a modern-classic approach to the 'Roaring Twenties—The Golden Age of Drinking’, by complementing elements of the era with a clean and minimal visual language. The timeless logo, palette of typography, shapes, and colors represent the brand by providing a sense of luxury, yet combines an irreverent spin to make wine more enjoyable.
Images (opinion after)
The old logo could have easily been a spin-off of the old Uber logo, which is to say it was an okay, slightly generic logo with tendencies to disappear because of its thinness. It also didn't, in any way, convey the idea of wine, either of the product or of drinking it. The new logo taps into the 1970s black serif revival to pour a sumptuous wordmark with a groovy, unexpected ligature in the "Wi". It's a nice maneuver that yields a richer, fuller logo with notes of raspberry and hickory. (Yes, I took the wine description too far). The icons are great as a set but feel disconnected aesthetically in their hard geometry from the looser curves of the logo. The application renderings are nice to look at but maybe a little on the dry side and cropping the logo at "Win" so that "nc" peeks as it turns around the corner doesn't add much to the concept or execution. Still, a fancy update that is more fitting of the product. Plus: that logo animation.
