Illustration and Lettering: A Hands-on Approach to Label Design


This project was to design a label by hand for a product of your choosing. I chose to do a wine bottle label design. Hand lettering and drawing aren't my strong skills so I wanted to do something that I could learn from. Jon Contino is a local artist and I found his tutorials to be pretty interesting and knowledgeable. I was working on another project for Red Maiden Vineyards (mock) that was all digital; so I wanted to get more inspiration doing something hand done. After a few round of sketches and label layouts I created 5 different looks; editing my scanned images and colorizing them. It all started by sketching out some ideas...
