Braidwood Ales Beer Labels

Braidwood Traditional Ales: bottles

Client: Braidwood Traditional Ales
Type of Work: Beer bottle labels
Software: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop

Braidwood is a small historic town about 50 miles from Canberra, Australia. The client – a newly-founded micro-brewery and cafe – was looking to capture the heritage and tradition of the area in their new beer labels. An illustration by a local artist of a shearer relaxing with a cold beer and his dog served as the focal point of the design, while I devised distinctive color schemes for each variety of beer. Once the labels were approved, I  adapted the artwork for use on tap handles and as brewery signage.
