A Stylish, New Look Reflects Kunjani’s True Character


3 June 2019

A gesture that symbolises a greeting between friends and a simple yet clear message on a wine label that invites people to enjoy the good life! This is what Kunjani Wines wishes to convey to all and sundry with their newly designed and updated wine labels.

“At Kunjani we are all about greeting guests with a warm welcome, and the hands on the label represent a greeting between friends. Kunjani means ‘Hi, how are you?’ and that is exactly how friendships start,” says Pia Watermeyer, Kunjani’s co-owner.

After various awards for its wines and rave reviews for the restaurant and architectural design of its tasting room and restaurant, it was decided to bring the labels of the wines in line with the upmarket character of the facilities at Kunjani. The well-known design studio Haumann Smal was approached and new labels were designed.

The brief was to upgrade the existing labels into a more contemporary, sophisticated and timeless look. Paul Barth, Pia’s husband and co-owner, wanted to retain the two hands (one male, one female) doing a “fist bump” which symbolises a greeting, while Pia wanted to incorporate the architectural elements and colours of the building and restaurant. The new labels are printed in charcoal with a glossy high build to contrast with the matt paper. The element of the two hands, redrawn in a graphic line work style, is placed in a small oval to be used on its owner as part of the logo and brand mark.
