Craft beer labels for Allendale Brewery
Posted 10 months ago and submitted by Martin Reznik | Share link:

These four beer labels were commissioned by Allendale brewery. They gave me a lot of creative freedom regarding the illustrations, asking only to keep the theme similar to their existing packaging, which mostly featured monochrome Victorian-style collages against a colourful background. The commission also included a complete redesign of the pump clip shapes and bottle and can label layouts.

The four illustrations were initially drawn in pen and ink on paper and once approved by the client they were redrawn in Photoshop using Wacom Cintiq tablet for a clean and crisp line. The elements of the background patterns were also hand-drawn using the tablet and then arranged and coloured in Photoshop. The layout of the labels and pump clips was executed using Adobe Illustrator.

The project received Silver Award in Creativepool Annual 2021 Illustration category.

Martin was amazing from the start. We talked about the general concept and visual language and he was continually in contact to make sure that the project was going in the right direction but also suggesting innovative and unexpected ways to enhance and improve the illustration beyond what we had ever immagined. We are extremely happy with the wonderful result. Thanks again Martin!
