01 / Luxury Packaging

One of our notable passions can be seen in our custom-made luxury packaging area. We consider the concept of ‘dressing an item up’ as important as making the item. The simplest of attributes such as the texture, colour, size and quality of a packaged item speaks volumes of the brand and to their customer. We endeavour to treat each section of the packaging with dedication, accuracy and the utmost care, ensuring that the end result is always aesthetically captivating.

A key specialism of Zone Creations is our ability to work on technically challenging packs that incorporate a variety of materials and potential experiential attributes, such as movement or lighting. Our collection of highly skilled craftspeople have foundations in cabinet-making, engineering, casting, jewellery-making, model-making and electronics which, combined as a resource, give a comprehensive potential for any packaging requirement.  

Zone Creations’ numerous years of experience, coupled with our knowledge of luxury packaging, is a great testament as to why we have grown monumental relationships with many of our clients.  

Glenfiddich 40 Years Old Cumulative Time

Client - William Grant & Sons

Crafted by Zone Creations

Just as the 40 Year Old whisky is composed of layers of flavours that transform, the outer packaging design brings this to life with a bold and maverick take on a geological metamorphosis. The decanter is housed in a stunning sculptural container and stopper made from Jesmonite, a material with individual characteristics that render every piece completely unique.

Glenfiddich 50 Years Old Simultaneous Time

Client - William Grant & Sons

Engineered by Zone Creations

The outer casing of the 50 Year Old is an artistic representation of the climatic data that created this extraordinary whisky. Hot summers speed up the maturation process and cold winters slow it down – dramatically affecting the outcome of the liquid. These climatic conditions are unique to that time and day, they can never be replicated. Manuel Jiménez García, a computational architect, decrypted the meteorological data into an algorithm, and generated a physical design language to build the structure’s bespoke form bringing life to every second of every day, of every month of those fifty years.
