I made a design for a bottle of gin based on the song ‘Sorrow’ by The National. I love this song and its lyrics and I’ve wanted to do some work based on it for a while. One day I had this idea and had to execute it.
I made these beer labels for my brother for Christmas! Earlier in the year, we’d been fantasizing about him starting a literature themed brewery called Whale of a Tale Brewing Co. where all the beers would be named classic literary/beer puns. I liked these three that we came up with the best so I decided to illustrate their future labels. Hopefully someday they will all really exist and I’ll get to drink them!:)

“Robot Food arrived at the peak of the global financial crisis. Five years later, we’re toasting success with our very own anniversary rum. To celebrate these five fantastic years, we’ve had special rum bottled, in a limited edition of fifty. It’s aged five years in oak barrels, with a label that speaks of ‘a depth and complexity far beyond its years’. Each bottle has been hand numbered and finished with a branded wax seal.”
Robot Food was started in a dining room in Harrogate, in January 2009, by Mike & Simon who met and became friends while studying art & design at college. We would love to say that we refined our model while learning from our employer, taking a wage – that we broke away, bringing clients with us on our journey, but we didn’t. We had a vision, developed creative concepts and PR’d them as if they were real, gaining exposure in major international design press. We then hit the phones and sent out branded promo. Many of our clients today became aware of us back then and have watched our growing determination for success.
“The Hanson Family, Californian through and through, have built a distillery in Sonoma wine country and are making vodka out of local grapes. They believe in checking quality and hand crafting so much that the labels are all signed and applied by the three Hanson sons. We wanted the brand to reflect the hand finished aspect of the product and stand out as a Californian icon.”
