Owen Gildersleeve: Balvenie

Advertising, Art Direction, Design, Illustrators/Designers, Liquid, Owen Gildersleeve

Paper craft illustrator Owen Gildersleeve was commissioned by Here Design in London to collaborate on artwork for renowned whiskey brand Balvenie’s latest campaign for their 12, 14, and 21 year old single malt. Balvenie is considered “the most hand-crafted of single malts”, thanks to natural alchemy and centuries-old craftsmanship. For their campaign, Owen created a series of layered paper sets in which to house a range of their bottles of single malt whisky.

When asked about his approach, Owen explained:

“For each set I was tasked with trying to convey the flavor profiles of the whisky in my layered graphic and abstract style. We then teamed up with the super talented photographer Mitch Payne to capture the sets and create these wonderful short films in collaboration with The Forge, which really show off the depth and detail of the sets, as well as Balvenie’s stunning bottles!”
