Over the past year I have been fortunate enough to work with Ontario craft brewer, King Brewery, to rebrand their business. Their new company, which is called Barn Door Brewing Co., is planned to relocate to rural Uxbridge, where they will repurpose an old barn built in 1876. The vintage structure is the centrepiece of the new operation and was my inspiration for the design of the Barn Door logo.
Back when I was still in school at Humber College we were given the task of revamping the identity for an existing Ontario-based hotel. The hotel I chose was the Woodlawn Inn in rural Cobourg Ontario, which features Victorian architecture and high end services.
One of the first questions potential clients and other designers usually ask me is what my design process is like. This series of graphic design case studies is aimed at answering that question. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the development of my design and illustration projects from the concept stage right through to production.
In this first instalment we’re going to be looking at the Oktober Fest beer label that was created for the Barn Door Brewing Co. This was the first label I designed for them and really set the tone and style for the entire series. Lets get started!
If your like me, you are curious about other designers and their workspaces. Well, today you’re going to get a full tour of my home studio and the design tools I use on a daily basis.
