Distilling an old tradition into a new drink

ZIMA / Evrosad

The story of ZIMA dates back to 1965, when Emil’s granddad bought an orchard in Eastern Slovenia, once belonging to a Yugoslavian fruit cooperative. While he made a living with fresh fruits, every winter he would take the time to produce something far more delicate – a spirit made from finest Williams pears, viljamovka. We rediscovered the spirit in 2016 and joined forces with Evrosad to create one of the finest traditional Slovenian drinks. ZIMA (Slovenian for winter) is inspired by local tradition and designed with a vision of global market success.

We’ve worked with Gramatik on his latest album release

Next project > Gramatik

Gramatik is a producer/DJ, based in Brooklyn. He has always subscribed to the notion that music should be easily available to all. For this reason, his complete discography, along with his newest album Epigram, is available for free on his website. The challenge then was how to encourage people to support artists while downloading and sharing their music. In collaboration with [Multipraktik Collective](http://www.multipraktik.si/) & [Jono Brandel](http://works.jonobr1.com/) we set up a new brand communication platform. We built a website were anyone can listen to all of his tracks, all the while, streamlining the support points for the artist, which included merchandising and donations. The main body and highlight of the project was the interactive-game like application that generates custom artwork, which eventually became the newest vinyl and digital release cover. In the first week alone, over 9000 epigrams were created on Gramatik's new website.
