The other day, I was fortunate enough to meet with German designer, Gundolf Plotenhauer of Pfotenhauer Creative. Currently residing in San Francisco, Gundolf had a chance encounter when he became aware that Francis Ford Coppola was in search for a designer to create the packaging for his collection of wines. After captivating Mr. Coppola with his portfolio, Gundolf soon embarked on a long journey to produce the packaging for Francis Ford Coppola’s Diamond Collection of wines. In addition to the Diamond Collection, Gundolf also designed the innovative Sofia Champagne can; which Gundolf expressed as being quite the process in manufacturing and legalities. With a client that believed in taking a risk in the name of beautiful packaging and presentation, Gundolf was given an opportunity to really shine in his line of expertise. CHEERS! To beautiful packaging and good wine.
