Custom Bottle Design for Tom's Town
After developing the brand strategy and visual identity system for the Kansas City distillery, Satellite and the Kevin Cantrell Studio got to work extending the brand into a custom glass bottle design that reflected the distillery’s Roaring Twenties roots.
The towering balustrades that festoon the bottle grew from the dramatic geometry of Kansas City’s Art Deco architecture. And the iconic, embossed Tom’s Town’s double “TT” monogram with companion manifesto, “The People Are Thirsty”, further help the brand stand tall on the shelf next to common stock bottles.
The custom Tom’s Town glass bottle evokes the grandeur and magnificence of prohibition era Kansas City, known by all in the know as the “Paris of Planes” and the “City of Fountains” where the spirits ran free.

These alternative bottle designs were not brought to market but were crucial to developing our ultimate design solution. It’s hard to kill your darlings, but they will live on as digital spirits.
