“Born as a response to the one-dimensional beer culture in South Africa, The Devil’s Peak Brewing Company (DPBC) produces brews unlike any other beer you’re likely to find locally. The designs reflect the intricacy of the different beer styles and the brewer’s passion to create beers with unique character and depth. Craftsmanship, idiosyncratic style and the underlying belief of ‘truth to material’ – where the insides inform the outside – equals 4 distinctive styles with 4 equally standout designs. Recently released, the designs are already winning public attention at beer appreciation festivals and on Facebook and twitter.”

“We’re branding a series of 650ml bottles for Fort Garry Brewing for their Brewmaster Series. Kona Imperial Stout is the second beer in this series.
All these beers are strong in character and we want that reflected in the label designs in a bold, catchy way. With the ACL painted bottle print process we like to keep designs simple and bold so one can pick up the entire message and feel of the product on a single glance and to cut through clutter on the store shelves.”

“A new artisanal brewery opening in the Seattle’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.”

“In the 1840’s thousands of people flocked to America in search of gold. My rebrand is based on the idea of discovering rare and valuable minerals, hence “Prospect Brewery”. The box appears to be a wooden crate full of rocks or coal. 6 small holes give the viewer a glimpse of the product inside. The bottles are painted in matte black to represent the rocks in which the minerals would have been found. The labels have a glossy finish and the design represents the crystal form of rare raw materials. The customer will discover 6 new beers for the first time with a sense of curiosity, and the award winning beer inside will not disappoint.”

“Evil Twin/Omnipollo Russian Roulette is a collaborative effort between Swedish brewery Omnipollo and Danish brewery Evil Twin. Instead of doing a collaboration beer which is quite common these days, we choose to brew a beer each – a dark and a light one – and seal them in identical packages. For this project, Karl Grandin and Martin Justesen managed to merge the two company identities avoiding a collision and creating an expression with is forceful yet respectful. Bust a cap and face your destiny.”
