Perold Wine Cellar

Logo design for South African wine specialists

Perold Wine Cellar owner Gerhard Perold approached us with a brief to create a new logo design and brand identity. We kicked off proceedings with a meeting to understand a little bit more about the business and Gerhard. Gerhard is a keen rugby player and coach, so we were keen to get some of Gerhard’s personality and obviously a link to his heritage expressed in the logo.

The first set of logos contained a version of our preferred design and also some other designs which also adhered to the brief.

We pushed for our favourite and to our delight Gerhard agreed. The final logo design contains a graphic representation of a Springbok. The Springbok is synonymous with South Africa and especially South African rugby (the national team are known as the Springboks). With a few minor tweaks we cleverly combined the Springbok with a glass of wine. Fortunately Springbok horns are a very similar shape to a wine glass. With some minor adjustments to refine their shape, without losing the essence of a true Springbok representation, we were able to present a final logo that combined elements of Gerhard’s heritage, personality and area of expertise.
