Did the Title of this piece catch your attention?
It is a funny world we live in when you are approached by a film production company asking if you would like to place your product, at no expense to yourself, into a film that ends in the death of Amy Winehouse. Do we want to be remembered as one of the liquors that put Amy into her premature grave? The expense to place the product may be free but the lasting impression and damage to your branding could be detrimental.
Some say ANY ATTENTION is GOOD ATTENTION but I think that is a darn dirty lie. Hence, passing up this ‘opportunity’ in which $100-400k increase in revenue is estimated from the producers ‘b.s.ers’. If anyone find out which brands end up being used please let me know. Would be interested to find out!
Have you seen the old label of our Arroyo Vodka? My guess is you didn’t notice it, and if you did you don’t remember it.
Turns out our label needed an upgrade due to various complications. Therefore it was clear there was only one way forward, a rebrand. Taking on the task of coming up with an original design that is affordable to replicate for each bottle and is appealing to the consumer is really a challenge. I’m no advertising team, nor do I have the budget to hire one. So here we go doing the best we can.
There were a couple criteria we wanted for the new label, to jump out at you from the shelf, to be attractive to the eye, and to represent Arizona through imagery. We have a mountain scape with a sunrise and an arroyo flowing through. Many edits have been made but above is the general original concept. Would love to have some feedback from the public as we make our final decisions!
It has been ages since I have made a post on my darling blog. I have returned back to the states about 6 months ago. Hardly as much as an exciting move to report on. However, I am now managing my own business and trying to get it off the ground. I ideally would like to start a blog on my business website. This blog will be about liquor, production, sales, marketing, mixed drinks, experiments, and all of the rest. There is something I need to find when writing, and that is my writing voice. This is where I will begin. And I have learned one thing, “i” blogs are not very interesting. Must write ‘we’ and 3rd person blog posts. Will start experimenting with this shortly.
