Last Friday, we convened the Austin chapter of Creative Mornings for some radical collaboration around the challenges faced by creative professionals. We asked what matters most to their success but isn’t functioning the way they need or want it to? In less than an hour we surfaced pain points, generated ingenious solutions and prototyped products and services that would serve us. We did this all using the Think Wrong methodology our studio practices. Learn more here.
The packaging we designed for Real Ale’s suite of 22-ounce, higher ABV Bombers was recently selected as a winner in the 2016 Print Regional Design Awards. Icons and color way were developed to give these heavyweight beers their own distinct personalities, while still remaining true to the brand system we built. Available now at stores across Texas.
How did we help the Blood Center of Central Texas launch a whole new name and brand? It’s kind of a long story, but thanks to the excellent reporting of Clarisa Ramirez you can read the shorter (and more interesting) version of the rebrand in this month’s issue of Austin Monthly. Check it out online and on newstands now.
Getting to work on a tequila brand is rewarding enough. So getting that work featured in Communication Arts’ Exhibit section is just the lime on top of our paloma. Check out the full write up here. And if you need a last-minute gift idea, Tequila 512 will fit in most stockings. Just sayin’.
Our friend Christian Helms made sure craft beer design would be discussed during Austin Design Week. Join he, Marty Butler, Mike Woolf and Jose Canales for Craft By Design, a panel where they’ll discuss the outside of the can/bottle and have some of what’s inside too. It all takes place this Monday, November 7 from 6 to 9 pm at Austin Beerworks. Learn all about it and register here.
