Brand design for a long-established miso brewery founded in Edo Bunka Bunsei
We worked with Sugita Miso Brewery, located in the Takada Castle area of Joetsu City, Niigata Prefecture, to redesign the packaging and other aspects of their "YUKI NO HANA" brand.

- Snow Flower Dancing in Miso Soup
In Echigo-Takada, miso is "floating malt miso," in which rice malt floats softly when it is made into miso soup. There are various theories as to why the luxurious floating malt miso was born, but the biggest reason is the spirit of miso makers in the rice-producing region who use rice luxuriously instead of wheat to produce the "malt" that is essential for making delicious miso. The fact that the character for “糀" is more commonly used than “麹" in our region may be an indication of this. Our miso is also a floating malt miso in the tradition of Echigo-Takada. The name "Yukinohana" comes from a customer in Tokyo who marveled at how beautiful the malt that danced in the bowl of miso soup looked like white snow. The white drifting rice malt is reminiscent of snow falling like flower petals dancing. It is the traditional craftsmanship that makes the "snowflakes" bloom in the bowl.

- A "taste of home" that you will never get tired of eating
We believe that miso should be a "supporting role" in cooking. This means that while miso itself has its own unique deep flavor and taste, it should not be overpowering and should bring out the best in the ingredients of the dish. This is because we believe that the original role of miso is to bring out the flavor of the ingredients without being overbearing. Because it is miso that you will use every day, we want you to have a genuine taste that you will never get tired of.
