    Dolija is a producer of extra virgin olive oil from southern Istria, Croatia. Oleg Šuran designed the visual identity. For the logo, he made early use of Punta (Hot Type), set in tracked out caps, with a superscript “08” in Nota (Typotheque). Punta is also used for the bilingual product description on the labels, here featuring its Black weight for “Dolija”, and again supported by the sans-serif Nota.

    The label material is quite thick and absorbent, so that it can soak up any oil drips. This paper was a bit more expensive, so for budget reasons the labels were printed in a single color. In order to avoid a dull look, a colorful typographic stamp is added to the label by hand. Each of the seven flavors got a distinct stamp design. The fonts in use are:
    Schmalfette Fraktur (Dieter Steffmann) with Punta Black for Karbonaca,
    a mix of styles from Knockout (Hoefler & Co.) for Istarska Bjelica,
    Mostra Nuova (Mark Simonson Studio) for Leccino,
    Surveyor (Hoefler & Co.) with ornaments from Marlene Display (Typotheque) for Rafe,
    Thema Moderato (Typotheque) with Peleguer Ornaments (Tipo Pèpel) for Rošinjola,
    Turquoise (Resistenza) with alternates for Buža,
    Brioso (Adobe) for Pendolino.

    The wrapping paper features text set in Surveyor, paired with Poem Script and Horizontes Script (both by Sudtipos).
