Healdsburg Pennant

MY CITY

Healdsburg, CA

REFERENCES

Healdsburg (and the surrounding areas) have a pretty long history in the wine industry. I want to try to capture that in this pennant by keeping the feel as vintage/antique as I can. So I'm drawing most of my inspiration from old wine labels and ads.

FAVORITE OXFORD PENNANT

Ugh...So hard to choose a favorite. I'm pretty sure I'll be collecting them all. But this one will be first—I need it hanging over my desk.

CUSTOM TEXTURES

I used a combination of two custom textures. The first is from a picture of a wooden wine barrel. The other is from a closeup of my dog's fur. I turned both of them into textures by using the levels and bitmap method.

DESIGN

I did hand lettering and combined it with some vintage ad cuts that I found to keep with the look and feel I'm trying to acheive. One version of the design has a little line shadow on the text. I couldn't decide if I liked the line shadow or not. I ended up doing two versions because I wanted to try two different textures anyway.

Here are the designs without the textures:
