Custom Bottle Design for Tom's Town
After developing the brand’s strategy and visual identity system for the Kansas City distillery, Kevin Cantrell Studio and Satellite Office were tasked with extending the brand into a custom glass bottle that reflected the distillery’s Roaring Twenties roots.
The towering, symmetrical balustrades that flank the bottle grew from the dramatic geometry of Kansas City buildings, while the embossed design of Tom’s Town’s double TT monogram and slogan, “The People Are Thirsty”, further distinguish the brand beyond expected stock bottle packaging.
Pulling from the art deco architecture prevalent at the time, the custom Tom’s Town glass design evokes the grandeur and magnificence of this “Paris of Planes” and reinforces the existing decadent label branding.
These alternative bottle designs were not adopted but were crucial to developing our ultimate design solution.
