Illinois Sparkling Co.

identity - packaging - print - environmental - web - client testimonial

ISC (Illinois Sparkling Co.) is an independent craft winery obsessed with making exceptional sparkling wines using the Traditional Champagne Method.

The clients wanted their award-winning product to reach geographically further than the Midwest, so Bodnar Design was contracted to redesign the company's identity, packaging, print collateral, signage, and website. The ISC acronym became the brand name (vs. Illinois Sparkling Co.) and the bubble swirl the identity mark, representing "riddling" – the hand-turning of each bottle over many months which allows the secondary fermentation to take place. "Perfecting the Bubble" was adopted as the new tagline.

ISC is a sister brand to August Hill Winery (AHW). Both brands are represented on many co-branded pieces such as wine club literature, tasting room/event signage and carry-out packaging for complementary cross-marketing. The August Hill Winery web site was also designed by BDC.
