Again this is for wine and not beer but I still love the design. I like the very vintage and modern feel that the designer was able to accomplish with this particular bottle. Although it is overcome by text, it isn’t boring text so I feel the consumer would still want to read it, especially if they’re enjoying a glass by themselves. (via Packaging | 2/9 | Serifs & Sans)
I love the design concept of this beer because the designer kept the elements of his design throughout all the different beers and only indicated they were different by color. I love that he used geometric shapes and lines to draw the animals the beers were named after. The color palette also goes together really well. (via Revertis Beer Packaging Design on Behance)
These different beverages have a very successful package design because they all stay cohesive with each other but immediately convey each different use for each different beverage which is what makes the design so successful. (via package design)
A little while ago, I was contacted by the lovely duo at Loveleigh Invitations to design a wedding invite package for a couple wanting a wintery barnyard and Golden Books-inspired look. Total joy— rubylith and animals and patterns and working with the couple’s really interesting palette of ivory, brown, rust and red! The bride and groom were thrilled, and I had a blast pulling it together.
In a way, this was an interesting precursor for me— since I got engaged last week and now I’ve had some experience putting an invite together, I can’t wait to dive in and make one for us! (Though I’m relatively certain screenprinting will be involved.) More invites/cards in my future? We shall see!
Wow. I did not even realize how freakin AMAZING Todd Slater is. I’ve seen many of his works and had no idea they were his; everything I’ve seen has some pretty awesome typography. This is just another example of a music fest poster - Electric Forest 2011. I like how he used lines to create the “Electric Forest” text. Once again, a very curvy style poster/graphic with a variety of curvy sized/weighted fonts. The green and orange colors seem pretty fitting for the outdoor forest, night life festival.
A few other of his works that I’ve seen elsewhere and thought were really cool include posters for Elvis Costello, Phish, Primus, Neil Young, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and Jack Johnson. (You can view them all on his site at the top.)
Pretty rad design work! I really like this whole series of advertisements for Washington’s ballet Alice (in Wonderland) that premiered in April 2012. I love everything from the AWESOME typography work and layouts to the makeup, costume design and photography. I think their playing card border designs are really successful as well as their use of overlapping graphics. I also think their design element correlations between each character and their graphics works really nicely. Unfortunately, I have not gotten around to seeing the more recent, 2010 Alice in Wonderland movie, but the inspired design work in these pieces definitely encourage my interest. If anything, I think these ads are successful on all levels and make me want to have seen the actual ballet.
I really dig the font choices on the first poster “BumberShoot.” The faces hidden in the watercolor are pretty intriguing as well. I cannot tell if this is a real watercolor painting or a digital simulation, but I really like it. I think the gradient on the last section of text pulls the colors together super nicely. The center alignment of the text works, but I’m glad they decided to right align the subtitle with the title. The other posters are pretty cool, too; I just couldn’t get over the colors, imagery and freaking awesome fonts of the first poster.
