About

The brief was to look at the world of spirits and create a brand that comes from somewhere. It can a specific region or country, or even a town or city; but the drink should tap into something unique. This could be its culture, its geography, its past or its future. My response was a bold brand and visual identity for Ivankiv, an artistic Ukrainian vodka brand aimed at redefining the vodka market traditionally dominated by Russian influences. Ivankiv's horilka recipe, deeply rooted in Ukrainian culture and often regarded as the "soul of Ukraine," serves as the foundation for this brand. Sadly during the war, the local art museum in Ivankiv was tragically destroyed, including the works of the iconic painter Maria Prymachenko. Maria, known for her hospitality, often welcomed friends into her home with a glass of her homemade vodka, gifting them her vibrant paintings. Now, Ivankiv seeks to transcend borders and showcase Ukraine's rich cultural heritage and resilience. By recreating some of Maria Prymachenko's beautiful artworks, this brand embodies the strength and kindness that Ivankiv has demonstrated throughout the years. We’ve developed a range of flavours of Horilka that are each distinguished by their unique colour and design on the cans, ensuring they stand out on your shelves with our signature identity.
