Verallia Design Awards 2017
Verallia runs design competitions in several countries. The Verallia Design Awards gather hundreds of participants from the best design and packaging schools. The students are invited to propose bottle and jar projects, paving the way for future use in the food packaging industry.
These competitions are a real springboard for young designers.
In France, Verallia Design Awards 2016 prizewinner Leslie Dabin’s project in the Wines category won over Maison Du Sud – Jeanjean (Advini group). With its streamlined design, its facets and its chiseled bottom, this “SERAC” bottle embodies high-end packaging. It was chosen by the wine merchant for the launch of two new ranges: GEM (IGP Pays d’Oc) in white and rosé wine and ADIMANT (IGP Saint Guilhem le Désert). Production of the Sérac bottle was launched last March at VOA – Verrerie d’Albi.
Another project acclaimed at the 2010 edition of the Verallia Design Awards in France, the “Soirée à Rosé” bottle designed by Mélitine Courvoisier, today a freelance designer, has been a big hit on retail and wine store shelves. The Languedoc-Roussillon wines’ producer Gérard Bertrand has chosen it for his “Côte des Roses” wines.
