Summer 21 designed by Abbey Barlow.
My name is Abbey Barlow and I am 19 years old from Auckland. I’m an aspiring graphic designer and started studying Communication Design at AUT in 2020. I enjoy working with my hands and designing digitally to create my work and have loved doing art from a young age. I always knew that I wanted to be in the creative industry and I’m super thankful to Juno Gin for choosing my design for their summer bottle.

Autumn 21 designed by Niels Yuan.
Red Martini, inspired by a woman enjoying a cocktail at a garden party, amongst the Autumn leaves. This is an expression of freedom, vitality and celebration of life associated with the goddess of Juno.
Growing up in Rotorua, Niels spent a number of years studying, travelling and working around the world, before settling back in the North Island. Over the years, he had dabbled in a number of different fields from Physics and Aeronautics to Music and Education; more recently, he traded in his job in the Finance industry for life as a part-time artist. In his paintings, he combines abstract elements with figurative images, using layers of semi-transparent planes, straight edges, and flowing curves to build a multi-dimensional image that is both dynamic and static, evoking a sense of the atmosphere, emotions and qualities which lie beyond the purely visual.
Red Martini is an original oil painting created on a stretched linen canvas and is yet to be exhibited.
Winter 21 designed by Steven Greenblatt.
The front label artwork was designed by Steven Greenblatt, the winner of the Winter category in the Juno blank canvas competition.
Steven is an illustrator and lives with his partner in Taranaki, where he works as a junior doctor in New Plymouth. His lifelong interest in art has been inspired by his grandfather, who is an excellent artist. His label design features Jupiter, which ties into the story of the goddess Juno in Roman mythology – she was Queen of the Gods and wife of Jupiter.
Spring 21 designed by Llewellyn Parry.
I am a designer, illustrator and animator currently based in Christchurch. I love to create work that is meaningful, beautiful and fun. After completing a bachelor of design in 2015 I worked primarily as a graphic designer and illustrator for a number of years until I developed a love for animation and motion graphics. Nowadays I practice all 3 disciplines and work as a freelance designer on various projects. Creating the spring Juno Gin label illustration was a blast, I hope you like it.
