Hold my beer!

Last year, I was tasked with designing two coasters for a brand-new brewery here in Winnipeg. We wanted to do something fun and different, with a vintage feel… and pretty much the opposite of the plain old logo on a plain old round coaster.

This is always a fun part of the design process for me. I pull way more than I need and let the patterns and colours tell me what to do next.

In this case, the yellow, “bubbly” paper really wanted to be beer. And, I couldn’t choose just one, so I ripped it up and layered it until I had a full mug!
