New wine brand called 'Yin & Yang' - a blend of two contrasting yet complementary wine varietals.
Custom illustration, copywriting & typography (a modern take on Lombardic Capitals).
Yin = dark / moon / feminine / negative, Yang = light / sun / masculine / positive. Please don't label me a sexist. I didn't make up the rules! ;-)
The biggest challenge was to do an obvious Yin Yang symbol without doing an obvious Yin Yang symbol. ;-)

indeed a challenge, but you did a great job, terrific line work, love the way those clouds emerge there, great illustration as always! Type looks great also, love those subtle serifs
I see what you did there, and I like it.everything.
And another new one ... I need to get busy. ;-)
yes mate, lovely to see another cracking shot. the moon, sun, clouds & stars are all really lovely elements to look at, nicely bound by the yin & yang.
@Matt Vergotis - Thanks for the comment, mate! :-)
Wow another epic mark from you Mr. Sir! great work and now I want to taste it :P Awesome as always.
i like how it all works together fuidly,those clouds are super sweet,and i like those stripes sahding makes it all feel connected,and nice looking yin & jang,i think this is my fav piece from you after looking it more
@Nuruzzaman Sheikh - Mr Sir? I'll call you Mr Sheikh! Ha ha. Thanks for your support! :-)
@Nemanja Jovanovic - Favourite piece? Thanks man! :-)
Mister TM, this is gravy as usual! But if I may your highness, just a tiny nit picking from my side. The only letter that I do not quite feel for this setup/lockup is the letter A, especially in the word Yang.
But as I said, print this comment, take the paper out and throw it in the trash can, not important at all :)
Your the king of detailing my gosh!
@Alen Type08 Pavlovic - Fair comment. Could have been a little lighter or not there at all. I based the style on old Latin inscriptions running around old Roman coins, and they have they interesting T's and A's (no, not that kind ;-))
sooo beautiful ... love it !
Great work as always @Simon! Had to laugh a bit about the 'female / negative' bit. The type is beautiful! That must have taken a while. I definitely see the uncial coming out in the characters, I love the ampersand. Great stuff!
@Joseph Alessio - Ha ha! I just knew that I'd lose the female vote on Dribbble for that! ;-)
Thanks for the comments. Glad you noticed the ampersand specifically. I had fun drawing that one in particular.
Definitely prefer to draw my own type on a curve. Illustrator does a horrible job with the Type on a Curve tool, so I sit and bend each letter to match the curve, either with the warp tool or by hand.
@Type and Signs - Thanks Bernd! Always appreciate your comments. :-)
@Simon™ Is it a modified typeface, or did you do it all from scratch? Yeah, the automated Illustrator stuff isn't always that great - no easy way to perfection, haha, but it looks like you've pretty much achieved it!
So great (even the gender descriptions haha)! Sometimes it's hard to work with such prominent symbols, but you found a way to make it your own and it works beautifully! :)
the type fits perfect, great work as always man! really love your work
@Joseph Alessio - Thanks again! Always easier starting from a font. Could have been Quorum.
@Anna Ropalo - Thanks Anna! I was dreading this one, knowing that the client wanted the symbol featured somewhere, so I really appreciate you saying that I managed to add my own spin on it.
@Neil Tasker - Thanks Neil. You have some killer type pieces over on your showcase. You have been followed.
Really love this, the idea and symbols are beautifully executed. Fantastic type treatment as well! I can completely see how this one would be tricky to approach but like @Anna said, you've managed beautifully.
@Claire Coullon - Thank you. Means a huge amount having you give the thumbs up on the typography especially. :-)
Best shot I've seen in a while, great job!
@John Sætrang - Thanks John! That's a great compliment.
Very nice artwork!
