At Good Beer Hunting I focus on creating infographics for site editorials and package design for a diverse group of craft breweries. I also work on branding for craft focused bars and collateral for various GBH events.
Branding: Grim North Brewery
Grim North Brewery is a craft brewery based in New York City. The brand uses a stark contrast of black and white. The typography used is all hand drawn. The logotype is a custom, drawn font based on English blackletter. The brand is based around the science of brewing, heavy metal music, and skulls. Lots and lots of skulls.
Packaging: Grim North
The inspiration for these labels came from alchemy, sacred geometry, and mysticism. The geometric symbols work their way through the main artwork to create one main image. The backgrounds are detailed constellation maps, giving the one drinking something to read and look over. The labels were designed for 22 oz bottles as part of the breweries limited release series.
Print: FOAM Journal
FOAM Journal is a craft beer drinkers best friend. FOAM was done for Publication Design at Columbia College Chicago. The photos and stories were sourced from Solemn Oath Brewery and Good Beer Hunting. The journal is sixty-eight pages long and includes different stories through the craft beer scene.
Web: FOAM Journal
This website is based off of the Foam Journal, it serves as a web platform for subscribers to read new stories and keep up with the craft beer scene.
Identity: Portfolio Night
I started off my college experience at College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, IL. Portfolio Night is put on every year as a culminating event for all the Sophomore students. The Graphic Design 4 class has a competition for the identity of Portfolio Night. This poster was my submission.
Illustration: Solemn Oath Brewery
A heavy metal brewery with jokes is how you'd describe Solemn Oath. These illustrations were done for new stickers and merchandise. Inspiration came from skateboard culture, heavy metal, and the tongue-in-cheek seriousness Solemn Oath has.
A lot of my design work includes typography that has been drawn and illustrated. Shown are a few of my favorite samples, some were used in projects others were just for fun.
This poster was created to work with both negative and positive space within and around words and letterforms. I was also tasked with answering the question "How do you turn mistakes into opportunities?"
I created this poster with the statement "Collect your things and be on your way." I thought of things that I use on a daily basis and are important to me. If I had to pack my things and leave what would I bring?
I find the history of typography fascinating. I chose to research one of the most commonly used symbols to create an exciting and informative poster. The origin of the ampersand traces back to Roman scribes who, when writing the word and (in Latin et) would start creating their own ligatures. Many years later the word and became the 27th letter of the English alphabet, one would say X, Y, Z, and per se And, meaning the word and just itself.
This poster was made for College of DuPage's Essai Journal. The Essai Project is an academic journal featuring essays from current students. The poster was done as an infographic to help raise awareness to students who might not know what the Essai Project is and to help drive submissions.
