Elisso is an extra virgin olive oil produced in Lakonia, Greece, named after the producer’s 4 year old daughter.

It is well known for its superior quality thanks to the most contemporary, advanced and certified methods. Its fine extract with lush and rare aromas reaches an international audience, not only for its unique color and its special texture and taste but mainly for its nutritional value. Thus, to share its health benefits, olive oil turns into a cultural liaison between people. The medicine-like bottle series underline the product’s unique beneficial effects. While the packaging design, in total, invites cultures to know each other through the Greek language. In a sequence of four labels, Elisso Olive Oil introduces to the world the form and sound of the Greek alphabet. Bold typography rotates around the label with translucent embossed letterpress elements creating a worksheet for letter formation and a guide to the phonetic alphabet. So, each bottle with its rotational teaching method turns into a shaft of a music box that brings people closer.
