The client wanted to show how much Breweries had grown in the last 12 months in terms of infrastructure, finances and market share and how they have done this in the most sustainable way possible. Instead of showing the typical photographs they had used in the years before, I decided to let their figures speak for themselves.

Tafel Lager is the biggest selling beer and probably also one of the most loved brands in Namibia. That is why revamping and relaunching its packaging had to be approached in a very careful and sensitive manner.
