Totalmente Hecho a Mano
The company upholds and sustains the tradition of quality in cigar-making, and in so doing enlivens and elevates the cigar experience and appreciation —bringing the country’s tobacco industry to global prominence, recognized as its own industry and its own art.
The New Crest
In the recreation of their re-styled crest, we were requested to make changes not too distinguishable from its older variations. We followed the form of each mini-illustration as faithfully as we could, refining any inconsistencies, and also making each illustration just a little bit clearer.
To soften the original patrician look of the brand, we introduced a set of floral borders, and separators.
The florals in these ornaments are inspired by the tobacco plant, rendered in the Art Nouveau style.
