Red Hart Winter Ale. Sounds good, huh? I've been really wanting to design a beer label* (see note below) so I just decided to make up my brand of beer and do it :) I wanted it to have a very "Northwest" feel, like something you'd find at a little brewery in Portland.
*Wondering "why a beer label?" Well I happen to think alcohol has exceptionally designed packaging, ever seen an ugly beer label? (okay there's maybe a few in the world.) so that is the answer to why I chose a beer label. and finally, here it is:
This is the design I'm envisioning going on the outside of the box perhaps.
We designed face cards in a style similar to a card they showed us, using an animal instead of human.
My animal is a White Hart (hart is an old word for stag). It is thought to be good luck to see one as they are very rare to see. They are also the personal emblem of Kind Richard the second and appear on his coat of arms.
