The bluebird, also called Sialia or more commonly the bluebird, is a North American bird known for its beautiful, brilliant blue plumage. The story goes that in the middle of December in the seventeenth century, a terrible cold fell on the Ellesmer regions in the northern Canadian Arctic archipelago. A cold so terrible that it left little chance for the living species that populated the region. Seeing the junipers die one after the other, a band of bluebirds decided to save the last berries of these endangered shrubs by making a long journey to more fertile lands. The journey began. After several months of exhausting flights, and after seeing green landscapes where life was flourishing, the birds decided to stop. They are now in Burnley, Lanchshire, England. Dropping the berries they had carefully carried in their beaks to the ground, nature's magic worked and from the berries grew juniper trees, the like of which no one had ever seen in the area. A local distiller, enamoured of the bluebirds and the treasure they had brought back, decided to distil the berries into a unique gin. And so Blue Birds Gin was born. Burnley locals even say that on some winter evenings, the Sialia can be seen flying majestically.

Great Days is a branding project built around an original typographic design. The challenge for the studio was to create an image that was both strong and unique in order to break the codes of the industry. The illustration was done by hand in order to keep a certain spontaneity and bring a human touch to the brand. Using the strong symbol of the red rose, translating passion and love but also character, thorns. Between traditional Victorian style and modern graphic design, Great Days aims to be a bridge between the generations and addresses both the quincagenarian lovers of coffee liqueurs and the young epicureans wishing to discover new flavours.
