The beer can and bottle might be the new record sleeve where graphic design, illustration, photography and typography are concerned. This perfect, hand-sized crushable canvas is attracting much attention from a crowd of talented creatives all adding value to our drinking time. As good to look at as they are to drink.
Talented graphic designer James Ockelford has curated this wonderful catalogue, which contains examples of some of the best can and bottle design currently crowding the beer shop shelves. From Johnny Romeo’s bright pop illustrations for Zeroday in the US to the brooding monochrome micro-galleries of 0/0 Brewery by Lundgren + Lindqvist - there is a breadth of work on display here to please every taste. Personally we really love the wonderful moire minimalism of the author’s designs for Leeds’ own North Brewing Co., but we’re biased!
A fantastic collection of contemporary design that has been crying out for documentation.
