If you missed it, you can read the story behind this design in my previous post.
This ‘Love Birds’ design was originally created for a student project in 2011. It was part of a boutique brewery branding campaign (yes, really) and was inspired by the textiles of William Morris. With a few minor tweaks and new text, it is now a quirky little art print.
Below are some of the original images that I created for the completely fictional Old Mill Brewers. The idea behind the campaign was that the brewery was located in a converted textile mill, a sophisticated venue where boutique beer is savoured like good wine. As well as coming up with the name of the brewery and designing the logo and bottle labels…
…I also invented the six flavours: Red House (pilsner), Honey (lager), Vanilla (pale ale), Spice (witbier), Black Cherry (porter) and Chocolate (stout). Yum!
I even added the bird logo to the barcode on the back of the labels : ) It really was one of my favourite projects (as you can probably tell).
Happy Mother’s Day
From me, from the art cave, from miles away…
(A drawing from a few years ago when I was experimenting with illustration styles and digital colour. The studio looks much the same today as it did then, as does the plum tree.)
Happy Easter 2020
