Hilliard’s

“A new artisanal brewery opening in the Seattleā€™s Ballard neighborhood warranted a sleek contemporary twist on the vernacular of beer culture. A fresh application of a crisp herringbone pattern balances cleanly executed typography, channeling traditional European blackletter in a contemporary way.”

    I love the cans and the logo but the case kind of reminds me of a big cigarette carton? Doesn’t seem to take into consideration of the readability when stacked?

    Beautiful and unique to the beer category. They showed great restraint while still remaining creative and clever

    Overall, some very nice typography, colour palette is interesting, but for some reason it gives me a feeling of 1960’s American beer advertising, pushing the typical Bavarian beverage culture… in combination with 60’s department store sweater box. I like the idea, though it seems almost too clean.

    Nice design and typography, but when looking at this, I keep thinking of some type of coffee drink instead of beer. It must be the browns.
