martí guixé designs packaging for estrella damm beer



estralla damm has a new look thanks to the creative ideation of martí guixé. the catalan designer has developed seven graphic schemes for the spanish lager’s four packs drawing their bold, colorful imagery referencing the cultural history of barcelona–where guixé also grew up–with abstract depictions of gaudi’s sagrada familia, the famous la rabla pedestrian mall, to culinary influences like the widely popular dish paella, depicted on the packaging.


chef ferran adrià, who owns the tapas restaurant tickets with his brother albert, in barcelona, worked together with estrella damm to develop eleven tapas dishes to be paired with the beer, enhancing the taste and flavours of the pale lager and some of his recipes can also be found alongside guixé’s images. the limited edition designs are now available in stores until october 2013.
