Working with the Negative – A Lovely Wine Label

I love the way this wine label, designed by Mirit Wissotzky & Manuel Dall’Olio uses one simple die cut to both reflect the name and create an elegant and simple design.

The label was based on one of Paolo Manaresi paintings, (Self portrait – backlight) and the name Controluce translates to mean backlight. I’m not sure if the name or the portrait inspiration came first but they marry together well.

By using just one label that wraps around the bottle, rather than the usual front and back label the silhouette outline is further enhanced.


Elegant and simple but with a story behind it.
