For the opening launch of the new Octapharma offices, (once a brewery producing pilsner lager) we produced a beer with the guys at Öl Költur. The bottle design took inspiration from the original bottles they used to transport dry plasma in. The typeface proved very difficult to find but thanks to our friends at Dalton Maag we managed to track down a very close match (the original unfortunately was never produced as a digital font).
The name Octöl followed their formula for the way they name their products, Octagama, Octanate etc. The recipe was based on the original pilsner recipe and ingredients that would have been used at the time. According to the client it went down pretty well at the party, a little too well apparently.
