Whiskey Label

First Phase: Concept Mood Board

I'm going to design the labeling for a whiskey bottle (imagined brand). My goals for the label(s):

1. Include an illustration as the main component. I think whiskey tends to stick mainly to lettering, so I'd like to create a bottle that stands out from the competition.

2. Create a label that can be easily screenprinted, 1-2 colors max, that will employ all sides of the bottle.

3. Fuse together a slightly modern illustration/lettering that would be printed onto an old-school/vintage whiskey jug rather than a typical glass bottle.

4. Find ways to incorporate the whole look onto all aspects of the bottle: the cap, the main body, a tag, etc.


Inspiration: Macabre, black and white illustration, seppia tones, sketchy/macabre/gothic lettering, skeletons, bones, ceramic jugs, porcelain

   ** Note: Bone illustration (of arm and ribs) is my own**
